As someone who values accuracy above all in a self-defense situation, I’m a big fan of low-recoil weapons. The Chiappa [Spearmint] Rhino gets maximum props for reducing .357 recoil to sub-.38 levels. Kudos to the SIG SAUER P290 (Ralph’s review when I return), an incredibly shootable pocket 9mm. Self-defense .22? If that’s what it takes. Yes but—I LIKE recoil. My Benelli M2 Tactical shotgun may have a gel-pad-based recoil reduction system, but I get my kicks from its kick. JOE MATAFOME’s S&W500s are the business because they go BOOM! My name is Robert Farago and I like recoil. You?
