Hey I'm fairly new on here so I hope I'm posting this in the right place. My delima is this, my wife has a steel framed 9mm and she can handle the recoil fairly well. we recently got our CHL's and she purchased a ruger LCR in .38spc she absolutely loves it but doesn't want to practice with it because it hurts her hand to shoot it. I would buy her a compact 9mm but I'm pretty sure she'd have the same problem. I know that a .380ACP doesn't have to power of the 9x19mm but I'd rather see her carry something small than nothing. my question is how does the felt recoil of a small .380 like the Sig P238 or ruger LCP compare to her .38spc revolver or her DP51 9mm.
