I have a lady-friend, small boned 5'2" with a bad wrist. She just obtained a Ruger LCR in .38 Spl for SD, and claims it is a bit too snappy for her. Partial to Glocks (.40 cal in particular) I recommended the 9 mm "Baby Glock", but I've also read that the .45 has relatively light recoil for its size. Does anyone have first hand experience with any combinations of these guns, to rank them by amount of perceived kick (using comparable loads in each one)? My guess would be (from least to most): G26, G27, LCR, G36 or G39.... ....While putting the LCR lowest in "stopping power"? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
