I agree with you on the P-11, the recoil is a bear. I used it as a downpayment for another pistol. I have a Kel Tec PF-9 and for some reason it seems less harsh in the recoil area, although right now it's about to go back to them because the striker isn't striking. Since I too am in Florida, most of the time now I carry a Kahr CW-45. As far as long guns, I have a ruger 10-22 that I love, still with factory furniture, and an Armalite M-15 flat top with a red/green dot sight. I have a good amount of mags, except for the 10-22 but now that ruger is making a larger magazine, I'll be picking up a few.
