I would like to try the GSSF this year. My only Glock at this time is a 21. I am debating picking up something else to shoot. My first thought was 17, now I am thinking 26 because of less competition. Would it be extremely difficult and frustrating to shoot a subcompact for a newbie? I hear Big Dawgs rave about the 36's accuracy. Would the 26 be the best choice of subcompacts for GSSF? Would the 17 be the best full size? I am thinking 9mm because of the logic in the FAQ about smaller caliber less recoil and also because of ammunition cost.
