    So I'm looking for a good handgun and I want to either get a Glock 34 or 21 I'm looking for good stopping power, accuracy, and most fun to shoot.

    The 45 caliber has been stopping man for 100 years.

    I have a G21, but I have large hands. Pick the one that is most comfortable to you.

    10 mm would be good to have, but ammo is costly. Lots of stores don't even stock 10 mm.

    If I ever find one at the right price, I'll put it in the safe.

    >>stopping power - all guns have this. Shot placement is the most important thing. Also realize that no matter the round some people just won't stop right away.

    >>accuracy - this one is all on you

    >>fun - up to you

    Basically shoot them all, pick the one that fits. These are all factors you decide.

    I have the glock 35 and love it! It'd be a good compromise between the 34 and 21.

    The 34 is hard to beat as a very shootable gun. The lighter disconnector makes for a better trigger. The long sight radius helps in accuracy, and 9mm is much more afoardable to practice with. It's a long pistol and would be fine for home defense, but carry could be a challenge unless you are big.

    The 21 is an excellent pistol as well.

    USMC-Hat made a good suggestion on the 35. You could buy a Lonewolf 9mm Barrel and drop it into the 35 and get some 9mm mags and you would have a 40 or a 9mm depending on your needs at the time.

    That's what I have is the G35 and I bought the LWD conversion barrel!! Works out great if you don't want to waste the .40 cal at the range.
