Took out a new batch of 10mm reloads to the range yesterday. Thought I'd see how the recoil was in my newly-acquired model 29, compared to my model 20. At least with those 180 grain fmj's, the little 29 was actually easier to get back on target. (Ran some of the same drills with both guns using the PACT timer, so it wasn't just my imagination.) Guess the dual-recoil spring setup in the 29 helps with 'kick' more than I would have imagined. Even after 25+ years of sending lead downrange in fair quantities, I still learn something new at the range often as not.
