    I found that too. My .45 1911 seemed much ore controllable than a 9mm glock. My wife said the same thing too.
    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    I think the lower recoil is from the heavier round. I find that my Glock 21sf is more controllable than my Glock 17 and my Glock 34.

    GS-I will try to get some pics up with a price soon.

    The 20 ga has fairly light recoil. Also, in a home scenario, you can take a knee. That being said, go with what you can handle.

    Go read my budget gun reviews in the article section.

    If you aren't going to carry, get a shotgun. Mossbergs are big, ugly, and heavy...but they never break and they are very affordable. Shotguns are the kings of indoor home defense.

    If you are going to carry, anything weaker than .357 magnum is a compromise as far as I'm concerned. But I'm a big dude and have no problem stashing full-frame magnum revolvers. That being said, there is some really good stuff out there. Don't feel like your only choices are Sig, Glock, and Kimber.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Not that particular version, I played with the PX4 D, DAO. I personally do not like DAO, and the trigger pull was too heavy for my taste. I would prefer a second hand SIG to a PX4. Just my 0.2 cents, canadian currency.

    my sig is dao. 6.5 lbs pull, iirc. i actually like it better than da/sa guns. i'm far from an expert shooter, and i prefer the safety of the heavier pull. whenever i shoot da/sa guns i feel like i'm firing just a hair before i'm ready. maybe i just need practice.
