Later this year I expect to buy a new handgun. It will either be a S&W Airweight 38 for carry.....OR a compact .45. If I go the .45 route, I'd like some opinion as to which would be your preference. And if any of you have a compact carry .45, how rough is the recoil? My wife will more than likely carry the revolver, but if I can get her comfortable with the .45, she may also consider that. I"m completely open to mfg. on the .45. Single stack is important to me for carry. Other than that I'm open to all opinions.
