I tend to agree with you, my dad has a Glock 19 or 17( can never remember which, it's the full sizer) that he sometimes let's me empty a mag or two from it at the range. I always accept, but after the 5th or 6th shot, I'm ready for the slide to lock back so I get back to shooting something more my style. I don't like the recoil... I honestly prefer the recoil to my 1911 than to his Glock.
But, at the end of the day, different strokes for different folks! Find something that feels good to you.
