As an owner of an SR9c I know the recoil is very mild. My fiancee will be obtaining her CCP next week. I plan on taking her to shoot the LCP then the SR9c for her first experience. I don't see her liking the LCP much as I don't care for it much myself. I don't think the recoil of SR9c will be much of a problem for her, but she likes the size and weight if the LC9s. Is there a substantial increase in recoil firing the lighter, smaller LC9s?
