Default Glock 34 or 35?

Im trying to decide which one to buy, considering the current ammunition predicament. Any ideas?

If you're shooting competition, then go with the G34. 9mm is cheaper than .40 cal. I have the G35 which is my EDC. I love shooting this gun and had no problems with it. Also, I did buy a LWD 9mm conversion barrel for my G35, so I could shoot 9mm out of it.

I shoot my Glock 34 in IDPA competition. It is one of the top handguns used in IDPA comp. Mine has never let me down. No FTF for me. Very accurate gun.

I have owned both a 34 and a 35, I currently only own a 34. Primarily because it is very soft shooting, cheaper to shoot, slightly higher capacity and there is inherently less wear and tear on the gun shooting 9mm versus .40S&W. Both are good guns and this is a choice where either way you can't really go wrong.

if you were not going to use it for competition i would get the 35. You can get a conversion barrel from lone wolf to shoot 9mm. so you would get both? ive had no problems with my .40 mags in my glock 19 with 9mm. you just can load them up to more than 10 rounds. or you could just get the glock 17 mags and be all set.

I've had and used both very successfully. I currently own several G34's. We just haven't had the success with the .40's that we had hoped so I don't carry that anymore. I sold all my .40's and switched to 9mm's. I have used my G34 more than any other gun in the last few years and find that it is the best gun I have ever had. It always works, always hits where it is aimed and looks super. This is my latest one.
