My wife and I picked up a nice pair of P2000sk's in a .40 cal and I was wondering if anyone can tell me (or describe) how much less (if any at all) a 9mm would recoil (kick) compared to the .40 ?? Is there much difference? Thanks all!
Maybe a little off topic. I don't own any .40's but I've shot my share. Generally the difference in felt recoil (subjective) is quite noticeable. The only gun that I've shot in 40 that really impressed me was the full size M&P. It felt like I was shooting a 9mm. It's the only pistol (so far) in that caliber that I have considered purchasing.I love the .40, but I wouldn't buy a gun chambered in it any smaller or lighter than the full size USP. The .40 in a Sig 226 or 229 is very easy to shoot, but a compact polymer isn't the best platform IMO.
