The 9mm is a great gun to get started with. After your first range visit, you will want more than one Glock. I did and everyone I know suffers the same addiction these fine firearms cause! Best suffering I ever had!Thank you! Yes I have been currently looking at a Glock 26 9mm. It's definitely going to be a range gun, however I also plan on using it for home defense and eventually cc.
And if you haven't heard the term "snappier" yet, there are a lot of post on the forum about the .40 caliber being just that. I have to agree. My little 36, .45 acp, is less snappy than my 23. IMO they have tamed it a bit with the Gen 4's. New recoil spring design. But honestly doesn't take long to get used to it. You will notice a significant difference between the 9mm and .40.I'd say the G26 recoil would be lighter... .40's tend to be a little snappier, in general..
