I've already got a full-size 1911 and a Ruger GP100 (.357/4"). I've been thinking of helping Ruger reach its "1-million guns in a year" mark by getting a pocket pistol - LC9. Then I was thinking of getting the even smaller, more concealable LCP (.380). Now I'm thinking of getting the SR9C because, although it's not as small, it weighs a bit more and I hear that recoil on the LC9 and even on the .380 LCP can be a little rough as they are so light. Does anyone have experience with the recoil of these guns, especially as compared to a full-size 1911 or a GP100 in 357? On the one hand, I don't feel a need to punish my hand; on the other, I find it hard to believe that even a very light .380 or 9mm kicks more than my .357 Mag.
