I've never shot a ".32-short" that I'm aware of, but I have shot a .32 ACP, and I would say (depending on the firearm it's shot out of) it had less "Felt" recoil then a 9mm Luger, or a .38 S&W special, or even the .38 ACP. But, of course it is less powerful by most measure then any one of them also. I could only imagine that a ".32-short" would have even less power/felt recoil then a regular .32 ACP. But, again I don't remember having ever shot a .32-short.
Hope that makes some sense to you.
And... I'm not quite sure where a .380 ACP/ 9mm Kurtz fits into all that mess.
