I just bought the G32 after agonizing over my three narrowed down choices of G19, G23 or G32. I finally decided on the G32 for it's power and speed. I expected all sorts of snappy recoil and to only be able to shoot it for a bit due to this. I was pleasantly surprised by its very manageable recoil. I love this gun. It's my first Glock. (Likely not to be the last) I plan on getting aftermarket barrels so I can shoot reloads in 9mm and 40. I do find it less easy to conceal than my other smaller handguns. Other than that, It's great.
