Hey guys, have a few questions on the p226 in 9mm. I know this is a rather subjective question/answer, but does the weight in this gun make a big difference in terms of felt recoil compared to say, a glock 19? I ask because I'd like something bigger than .22 that's still enjoyable for my gf and mom to shoot when they go to the range with me, and would hope this may open up my gf to using a bigger caliber for self defense. Also, the 18 round mec gar magazines, are these flush fitting with the p226 pistol, or do they stick out? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
