Learning how to handle recoil – Step 4: Use a Heavier Frame

While the alloy frames are nice and light for everyday carry, the lighter frame or chassis does mean that it will not absorb as much of the recoil, which in turns means that you do. Choosing a heavy metal frame, can help. Of course, it has to be a balance if you are going to carry it as your CHL pistol.

If you can afford multiple guns, buying a “range gun” which is heavier than your carry pistol might allow you to practice more, which means that you learn how to handle the pistol and the recoil better. If not, see if the pistol you want comes in different materials and find one that isn’t too light, but not so heavy that it discourages you from carrying it.
