I'm a bit undecided about what I should do. Right now I have a G32- .357 sig. I bought a glock of that caliber because of the fantastic ballistics the .357 gives you. Great stopping power and a very flat trajectory at long ranges. Not to mention the fact that is is an awesomely reliable feeder partially due to it being a necked cartridge. Basically, I find it to be an outstanding self defense/combat round. So here's my dilema. I'm going to be getting in to competition shooting. I'm going to the GSSF match in Topton, PA this year and I'm also looking into IDPA (which I think is more of my thing anyway). My thought is that in order to even have a chance of beeing competitive in either of those competitions, it would probably benefit me to go to a G17 in a 9 mm. The reduced recoil should enable me to fire subsequent shots faster and more accurately. I'm also the type of guy that believes that you should train with what you fight with. So if I did go to a G17 for competition I would probably want to use it for my CCW also. Of course I would be sacrificing some of that great .357 power. But I know you can get some pretty powerful ammo for the 9mm too (CorBon JHP, etc). If I did get a G17, I would probably use CorBon JHPs for CCW and for competiton/practice I'm thinking of using Wolf ammo. So, all that said, I guess the big question is this: Would using a G17 in competition instead of my G32 benefit me enough to warrent buying one? Keep in mind, I know lots of practicing is the largest factor in doing well in competitions. Right now I'm only talking equipment. Any input you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated.
