    G19 feels snappier than other pistols.

    Wow, well, if you've got dainty 8 year old girl wrists, I suppose it might be a problem.



    or that

    But even then, he should be hitting what he's aiming at.

    :rofl::rofl: at the uncontrollable recoil from a 9mm.


    Sounds like the dude doesn't even have the most basic fundamentals of pistol shooting down right. Same thing happens to people when they can't drive a rifle correctly, them being all fucked up in their positioning causes the rifle to do strange things under recoil, which they blame on the caliber/gun.

    it is not the ammo or the gun. It is his technique. He probably has a horrible grip, is leaning backwards, flinching, and blinking with each shot. I'm not a big fan of that pie chart thing because it makes some assumptions that grip, stance, flinching, blinking, and sights are all proper. From my observation those things are more common the issue than breaking wrists, or too much or little grip pressure ect.

    My 115gr 9mm reloads are snappier than my 180gr .40 reloads. Far from anything uncontrollable though.

    Just sayin.

    my impression is my G19 has more snap than my USPc 9mm. I attribute it to my HK having a heavier slide.

    The USP with it's dual recoil system has a funny recoil for me. I can see the front sight do a little figure 8 as it transitions from one spring to the other and back. Not sure why but I do not notice this as much on the subcompact glocks but it's very visable on the usp's. The dual recoil system also gives it a slower pushy recoil that many people feel is softer.

    I much prefer a fast snappy recoil if the sights reset faster. Slow and pushy is just too slow.

    My 92fs has no recoil - but its a huge hunk of metal. My Taurus 905 on the other hand hits harder to me than my Rossi 357. But its a small frame revolver so I kinda expect it.

    I believe the compact he's referring to does not have the dual system, I thinkthat's only the full size models. My USPc .40 doesn't appear to have any special recoil springs.

    I wonder if the figure 8 has to do with the orientation of the various springs, as in their coil ends being some degree off of each other...?

    My preference changes depending on what I'm shooting. I like the snap on the Kimber because it will return to target very quickly but on the lighter stuff I think the push is better because I can basically stay on target the whole time.

    I do prefer the recoil of my Sigs or my dad's 92FS to either of my buddy's 9mm Glocks. :dunno:

    glocks and the 19 especially are definitely not "soft shooting" in the eyes of a noob thats for sure
