    Hi guys, yep I`m brand new here. Just a little background. 15 years ago I up and sold a 25 gun collection for a variety of reasons, I won`t bore you with, it`s taken me 15 years to figure out that was a mistake, fast forward to now. I`m looking to start by purchasing a Glock 9mm, I intend to do a lot of target shooting.

    I have a problem with my shooting arms wrist that cannot be fixed so my question is 2 fold first would a model 34 be a wiser purchase for target shooting than a model 17 and will the 34 have a bit less recoil.

    Second: what modifications would you make to remove as much recoil from the gun as possible, this will be important.

    I have two calibers of interest, the 9mm and the 22 lr. I`m aware that I can get a conversion unit to shoot 22lr`s in the Glock. Thanks Jim

    Welcome to the FTF community.

    I'm sure someone more knowledgeable about Glocks than me will be along soon to answer your questions.

    When you have a chance, please go to the Introduction forum and introduce yourself to the folks.

    My 2 cents on the matter is simple. The G34 has the advantage of added length, length between sights and barrel length so it would be better for any form of competition shooting over the G17. To me the greater length can aid with greater accuracy. Also, the trigger pull on the G34 is lighter than on the G17 in stock condition. so, placing them side by side i would opt for the G34 for target shooting and plinking over the G17.
