I picked up a used Micro yesterday. Took it to the range today. I've never been bothered much by recoil, but I found myself pushing the gun forward when I pulled the trigger do to the recoil. This caused the shots to be low. It also ejects the casings toward me. I was hit in the head by two of them. I have an EMP and have not had any issues with the 9mm. I'm sure I can overcome as I get more familiar with the Micro. My main question is would it be of benefit to get a full size 1911 and shoot it until I am more use to the 45 recoil. If so, what would be a good model in the Springfield line. I like stainless and good sites are a must.
