Default 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 up..am I thinking the right model?

Best bang for buck for competition.

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

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.

Tack

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...

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.
