True the 357sig is a little snappy. But no more so than the .40s&w to me. I've shot the G31 and G32 w/ no issues. In fact, that may be my next pistol.
Spartan, anyone can own a "C" model for a few more $'s than the basic models, if that's what you're into.
If you want to mitigate the recoil, try a lager frame (like the G31/32).
