Of the .32s and .380s, I've shot the following:
Bersa Thunder 380
AMT Backup 380
Taurus TCP P738
Here are my thoughts:
The Kel-Tec and Taurus are a lot of fun to shoot. The Bersa is too big to be a pocket gun, and it's a little rougher. The AMT Backup is one ugly piece of metal, but it'll get the job done.
Now dealing with recoil: The P32 was pleasant to shoot. I also found the Taurus TCP to be pleasant to shoot with Winchester White Box - I could put a couple hundred rounds through it without discomfort. However, I put a couple of mags of Federal Hydra-Shoks through the TCP, and there was a big difference. It was getting uncomfortable.
The Bersa was pleasant to shoot as well. The AMT makes a good paperweight.
