OK, it's basically a beefed-up hairdryer, but I love my P220 anyway.
And actually, Todd Jarrett makes a convincing case that most people really underestimate the amount of muzzle rise in most pistols, and caliber matters less than most people think. I was in a class shooting identical Commander-sized 1911 clones in .45 and 9mm, and the 9mm shooters were hard to tell apart from the .45 shooters by watching the laser dots climb the wall above the target in the shoot house. I believe there are differences, but like the differences between the "tiny" 115-grain 9mm slugs and the "huge" 230-grain .45 slugs, I believe the difference is a LOT smaller than most people think and likely to be insignificant in many situations.

I usually find .45 ACP easier to control than 9mm and wonder why in all the video games 9mm is always easier to control.Best Vietnam War music video I've ever seen put together by a vet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDY8raKsdfg
