I shoot IDPA, Defensive Pistol, and Steel Challenge with my G17. It has a 3.5 trigger, extended mag release, and True Glow fibber optic sites, other that that its just a stock Gen 3. It has done me well, and being a very practical character, I have no problem using it for CCW or since I always carry a sidearm while hunting, it fills that bill as well. 17 + 1, dependable, accurate, fairly light, whats not to like?

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...
I would choose a glock 35 for a number of reasons. Firstly, I can keep the same platform and get a Lonewolf or KKM barrel in 9mm and shoot targets with it. In its original form I can have a go at shooting steel. I would take the G35 over the G34 anyway due to the versatility of the G35.

I've been doing a lot of research on the glock 35 and I think I'm sold on it. If it fits in my hand well I'll purchase one and give it a try.

I personally think glocks look ugly but today I picked up a glock 35 and it fit my hand perfectly. I didnt realize that they come with the extended magazine release button out of the box. For 589 at my local gun store I'm buying one when the wife is not looking

The best Glock is the Glock that is in someone else's gun collection. Just my opinion. 1911 first and XDm Second.

I'm sure glad people read the OP. the most recommended Glocks for competition are the G34 and G35. It's really up to you what feels comfortable. You can use any Glock in competition. I own a Glock 35 and I love it. It shoots great right out of the box and haven't had one problem with it!!
