    I am not trying to be a smart--- with this answer but her choice should be the one she shoots best. Both are great choices and are commonly shot in GSSF. If she shoots better with one than the other then that is the one she should use.

    FWIW . . .

    Mrs. G7 likes the 17 quite a bit better than the 19, (and she hates the 26). The 17 has the least preceived recoil of the three. It is the least "snappy" in the 17, more af a "push" than with the 19, and 26.

    At least in practice she can notice the recoil. During a match, adrenaline covers most of it. ;P

    I am looking to buy one for her. She likes the feel of the 19 better so I will probably go that route to start and if it isn't the one, I will just have to buy her another one. Oh darn ;a We are going to be going to our first GSSF match and have no idea what to expect. Any suggestions of how to practice ahead of time? Looked at the course descriptions but they aren't very clear without seeing it once. I would appreciate the help. We are slightly apprehensive.

    Thanks!

    There are a lot of posts here with pictures, you may have to go back a week or two. Or do a search.

    Also, sportshooter.com has a few short videos of people shooting the stages.

    PS The ROs are very friendly and helpful, let them know it's your first time.

    If there's a shooting range that rents both pistol, have her try both pistol. If not, the G17 is the way to go.. ;f
