Personally I feel like any run of the mill 9mm round isn't harsh with a g19 or g26, however I have a friend intersted in shooting for the first time and wanted to know what factory loads can be bought that are "low recoil" as he is very timid about shooting (yes he will shoot my .22 first). It got me curious. Obviously this would be for learning purposes and I'd like to honor his wishes so he doesn't shy away from the wonderful world of shooting. Your thoughts on what you consider low recoil factory loads? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
