    You guys had me worried about the recoil of this little dude.

    I just got it today (grey- HC, JPNxx), gave it the F&B and went out for playtime, and it's not as bad as the pf9 recoilwise.  I shot 50 rounds of FMJ with a combination of two handed grip, strong hand, weak hand -- no malfunctions, or major recoil issues for me.  With the pf9 I generally do not enjoy shooting 50 rnds in one setting.  

    I think I'm gonna skip the rubber grips and pads for now, that may change when I get the Buffalo Bore ammo, I'll just have to wait and see.  I don't see how it can be any worse then the pf9, and its going to be a lot nicer to carry.

    Yeah, I don't know what people gripe about. It likes to jump a bit m(until you figure out that you need 2 prints on the diamonds), but to me a snub, even in .38 special kicks a lot harder.

    Agree with both regarding the recoil but the rubber grips do make a difference regarding control in rapid fire.
