Comment: If the slide is too heavy

(See in situ)

In post: 9MM Revolver?

If the slide is too heavy

get a lighter spring (here's a 12lb http://www.midwayusa.com/product/760175/glockworx-recoil-spr... ). Or, if you are interested in alternative carry try a 22magnum from North American Arms. I carry a black widow when I'm lazy ( http://northamericanarms.com/firearms/minis/bw-1.html ). And please, let's everyone hold off on the "stopping power" comments. Most self-defense occurs at point blank and a decent 22 magnum round puts out about 150 ft.lbs at the muzzle. That's more than enough to get a perp's attention.
