I bought a Glock 32 at the gun show last weekend & shot it yesterday.

It's a damn good thing I didn't buy the 33 because this little SOB has some ZIP on the recoil!

It's not certainly .44mag level or anything but my hand did shake a bit after 50rds.

I'm gonna switch over to carrying .357Sig from my .45acp H&K. While the Glock was the usual Glock, I really enjoy this caliber.

But did ya hit anything with it?
I found the blast too great and the grooves don't fit my meathooks after a string or two.
I would not want to have to use any .357Sig handgun without hearing protection or at night for obvious reasons.
At least for my uses, it would be relegated to "fun gun" status at the range.
My hats off to you, Bob...you can handle it.

Now for a .40 cal bbl.?

Very little. I ran off & forgot my targets.

I admit my hands were shaking at the end of the 50rds.

I don't know about night but "auditory exclusion" takes effect when one shoots defensively.

I'm already thinking about trading the Glock in on a H&K in .357Sig.

One caliber I have NO use for.

auditory exclusion doesn't stop hearing loss...

I seriously doubt that a few shots fired once or twice in a lifetime w/o hearing protection during a self-defense action would incur hearing loss.
