I saw a Hickok45 video recently where he said he might start carrying the G26 - not because he's old, but because it shoots so damn well.
Maybe a 45? To me the G30 has less recoil than G23/G32. Or the 45 GAPs? I've rented, they shoot great, and the G39 recoil isn't bad.
I like the 180 sub sonic rounds in sub-compact 40.
The Speer 180 gr GDHP Short Barrel is very soft shooting to me.
You don't have to run hot 155/165 gr rounds in a light 40 handgun.
