Whats the best glock for competetive shooting?
I was wanting to get a good glock for target shooting with exceptional accuracy in a 9mm or a 40 sw..,and I was thinking a glock 35 but I admit I am not super familiar with the glock line I thinking the right model?

+1 and I have the 4.5" model and could never figure out why they went w short barrel. Love the new sights on 5.25 and it will cost $250 to bring mine up to speed. (too damn high).

Best bang for buck for competition.

However, 1911s are great competitors but will require more budget. Take a look at STI.

Ok that xdm is making me lust alot and the reviews are very high

rifleman1 04-27-2012 06:45 PM depends on what you want to spend search the glock m18

I know you were asking about Glock but the XD recommendations are spot on.

More accurate, stronger design, and a much better trigger on the XD's, especially in the XDM line.

Personally I'd take a Colt 1911 Gold Cup for competiton but you'll pay twice as much.

The xdm looks very nice..i just found out my uncle ownes one..he is going to let me burn some rounds in it.... thank you all for the advice, I've never owned a high end pistol and I knew you guys could point me in the right direction for the best equipment..

If you were to choose a glock I would recommend a Glock 35. Its made for competition and can be used for both steel and target.

Why would someone recommend the 40 S&W for comp.?

If you're wanting a Glock for comp the 34 is a great choice. 9mm has less recoil and is less expensive. Faster follow up shots and the ability to purchase more ammunition. Practice, practice...

More accurate, stronger design, and a much better trigger on the XD's, especially in the XDM line.

This statement would be highly disputed among the Glock fan base. However the bottom line is try both the xd and glock the one that fits your hand the best is the one you want both are good guns. Since you didnt say what kind of competition you want to shoot I have no caliber recommendation for you.
