There really isn't much recoil when shooting my G29. I have used Silvertips, PMC 200gr.fmjs, Hornady xtp, and DoubleTap 165 and 180gr.Gold dots. I just ordered a box of the DT. 135gr. Nosler HP. So far with all the ammo tested, I would say my G36 that I sold had more recoil Than the Glock 29. The recoil from my G29 is just right, and I can shoot it one handed without an problems.
