    Everyone has different experience and views on recoil.

    The one truism taught to me years ago, by a very experienced shooting team coach, was to let your body move to the recoil. Train yourself to naturally move and gently absorb the recoil. If you try to stay rock hard, solid like a cement wall ...two bad things occur. 1) You do physical damage to your hand and wrist. 2) The pistol will move farther ‘off’ target. Making re-alignment more difficult and slower.

    IMO, Practice shooting a full mag both ways and see which you prefer...

    How do you naturally move and gently absorb the recoil?

    There is a difference between the "snap" of my G22 and my G19. That doesn't stop me from getting back on target with the G22

    Off topic but the G22 is my favorite gun so far. I really enjoy shooting it.
