It never ceases to amuse me when folks bring follow-up shots into an argument.

Believe it or not, just because YOU can only fire a gun so fast doesn't mean that nobody else in the world can shoot it faster. Folks come in all shapes and sizes, ergo a larger man who works out regularly is less likely to be slowed down by recoil impulse than a smaller man who never works out.

10mm Auto may be significantly hotter than 9mm Luger, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP, but it's no .500 S&W Magnum. In fact, the recoil isn't all that different from .45 ACP, which can easily be shot very fast and very accurately.

Can cartridges with less recoil be shot faster? Of course, but the difference in speed is negligible, like 0.2-0.5 seconds faster tops between average self-defense cartridges.
Besides, if getting out as much lead as quickly as possible determines the overall combat effectiveness of a firearm, then the Taurus Judge or S&W Governor must be the most effective handgun in the world because you can launch anywhere from 4-5 .36/9mm projectiles per trigger pull with 000 Buck shells, for a grand total of 20-24 projectiles per cylinder dump, which is more lead than any semiautomatic pistol is capable of outputting with a standard capacity magazine.
