I've had a few months rehab, surgery on right arm, I'm righ handed, took the rehab time to do the build. Operates fairly smooth after I replaced the recoil sprong with a 14 lb. couldn't rack the 17 stock spring.
No recommendation on the ammo, but good luck with the rehab. I've had shoulder surgery myself several months ago, still in rehab. Mobility is nearly 90% back, strength not there yet. May take a few more months.

Sounds like we're a well worn bunch of folks. :LOL: Here's my list; both ankles are fused, both knees are quite worn, the right elbow doesn't open all the way, severe degenerative arthritis in both hands and wrists, discs 5 through 7 in my neck have collapsed entirely and 1 through 4 have lost significant space between them.
Pain is such a constant that it's become a normality.
But I've had some very interesting adventures and a whole lot of fun wearing this body out and I can still shoot. :ROFLMAO:

LOL, a leg I'm not supposed to be able to walk on, but do. 6 plates holding ribs together (if you break a rib, and they offer to plate it,,,,,,,,DO IT), one functional lung, left shoulder has about half range of motion, right shoulder has a damaged rotator cuff (ortho doesn't want to fool with it because he says it's better than it would probably be if he did fool with it), STM is sketchy, random loss of balance when standing. Arthritis in my hands, but not too awful bad. Dental situation is a mess after the wreck. Malnourishment, antibiotics, genetics, what ever, it went off the road. Dentist worked a lot harder with me than she signed up for, but kudos to her.
NOW, having vision loss in one eye. Going to get the third level of evaluation Friday. When it rains it pours.

I feel pretty good these days still.
Strap on a sidearm and ride my horse for a few hours. Not the 8-10 hour rides I used to do but still good for 3-5 hours.
Not sad brother, glad. I don't remember any of it, but my wife was given quite a dark outlook for me. She didn't give up on me, and kept me going until my head caught up and I could self motivate. I'm walking, and living without supplemental oxygen.
Things aren't all rainbows an unicorns, but hard to complain too much. Finding a good supporting team helps and being the "difficult" person I am, rubs off on them. If not on board to start with, you are out or catching up. Being demanding is an asset if you do it right.
The demanding, militant personality paid off and continues to. LostWife is a "take you out, loser" gal, when she has to be. Not many things scare me, but she can. I love that woman.
I wouldn't have envisioned this life, but it really is hard to complain.

Sorry not familiar with a semi-automatic handgun. Last handgun I used was S&W 38 using 125 grain, other than that shotguns or hunting rifles. Have fired nothing in almot a year due to a couple surgeries. Just finished a Polymer 80 G26 build and looking for ammunition for test firing, not sure how I will handle any recoil at all yet.
What do you mean, "not familiar with a semi-automatic handgun"? You don't own one? Never shot one? Never heard of or seen them?

Some people just don't have any interest in semi's. Holding it, shooting it, or owning it don't qualify you as having an opinion on it or knowing much about it.
Some folks draw on experience.
