Yes, it does kick more than a 9mm, but for me it is not terribly noticeable like a .45 is.
Same recoil spring as you would find in normal length guns. The competition part is the sights being farther apart and still fiting in the box to be legal for gun games. (uspsa, idpa)

There isn't a 'best' option, there's only 'what works great' for you.

I'd generally trust the metal framed offerings from Sig, Beretta, CZ, S&W, and Browning. And the polymer examples from Springfield, FN, Glock, HK, CZ, Ruger, or S&W will do their part. There are other good options beyond that list, but those are the options I'd lay my money down for. Most 1911's are good. Most $400+ pistols (metal or tupperware) are good, period. Just figure what what suits your hands and your needs.

Nice. I hope you enjoy your M&P as much as I enjoy mine.

agreed. I noticed CZ and S&W made both of your lists. I don't know much about CZ polymers but I have sure as heck been impressed with their metal framed options.

I can understand wanting a S&W - I too have a M&P. Don't know what model you are looking at but if you decide on the M&P .40 and find it too much for all-the-time plinking (ammo price and recoil) you could invest in a 9MM barrel and a couple magazines and have both.

I wouldn't go too small for plinking but SD smaller could be fine.

Get anything else with it?

I got mine S&W M&P .40, 2 extra mags, Bladetech holster, Uplula Speed loader, 2 back straps, case for $525.00 brand new on sale at Trader Jerry's. Std trigger here.

Warranty is gone if it had a trigger job - per S&W.
