Have had and carried both. Still have the 29. As Willie said, recoil is MAYBE a bit more noticeable than a .45, but not enough to matter to me. I’ve shot the hottest loads from DT and Underwood, and while energetic, are nowhere near abusive. Weight is considerably less than a steel frame gun and easily carried, just requires a good holster and belt. I’ve even carried mine IWB, just use a good holster. I use Hornady Critical Duty 175’s or Sig 18 HP’s for defensive (people) loads.
