    which kicks more .40 or .45, i heard .45 is big and slow but .40 has a lot of punch and more kick to it.

    40's are "snappier".

    I found .40 to have a sharp snap to it. And a .45 is more of a gradual push. To me, even though the "push" might have more shove behind it, it's slower and feels easier to control.

    why not just make a thread with all of your questions in it instead of making 30 different threads?

    The Glock 23 I shot had a lot more felt recoil than the only .45 i've shot, which was a SW1911.

    If .40S&W has too much recoil for you, buy a .22. :mamoru:

    to me it didn't kick more, it was just a very uncomfortable kick. it was like 10x harder to keep on target than the 1911 i shot.

    Practice makes perfect. I've had no problem with .40 recoil.

    A .45 is a lower pressure round

    The .40s I've shot are snappier and seem to have more muzzle flip than a friend's .45 Para.

    I'd get a .45 before another .40.
