I don't feel any recoil on my LC380 at all. I will admit this is my first handgun and really thought my first purchase would be the LCP. Luckily I did some research before pulling the trigger on my first gun, I was concerned regarding the recoil on the LCP and luckily I Lund the LC380. I've used it in the range one time and found it to be easy to shoot ( I think the trigger is a little long if that's the right term, excuse me as I am a novice), it fit my small hands really well, and by the time I left the range I was really enjoying the gun. It did not lockback every time when the cartridge was spent, but that's what safety checks are for, besides I did not clean it prior to going to the range. Some oil on the gun definitely helped with the lock back and the ftf which only happened a couple of times. I'm very happy with this purchase and know I made the right choice for me with this gun.

Lcr380

Got my .380 several weeks ago and so far I love it. Haven't shot it so much since ammo's a bit hard to find now days, but the recoil's light and action is very smooth. Use a Tagua holster.

the ruger LCP with 200 E bullet gives 21.3 ft lbs of energy per ounce of gun
the ruger LC9 with 320 E bullet gives 18.8 ft lbs of energy per ounce of gun
the rugger LC380 with 200 E bullet gives 11.6 ft lbs of energy per ounce of gun
SO just divide the ftlbs of energy of the bullet you are using and divide it by the weight of the gun
also a locked breech gun will give less recoil than a blowback type of gun
