    Looking at glocks, a 17a or a 34, it would be for ipsc and 25m targets. I know that the 17a is smaller, and that 34 is easier for Ipsc

    If you are locked in on Glocks, the 34 would be the better choice. Or buy a 35 and get a 9mm conversion barrel if you are interested in having both .40 and 9mm calibers.

    The g34 is the 9mm and the g35 is the .40... Prices should be the same

    Glocks do not make a .38 super.
    9mm, 10mm, .357 sig, .45 acp and gap and a .40.
    If you wanna .38 super buy a 1911

    G17frantz makes a good arguement, if you want a .38super...buy a 1911....hell just buy a 1911 anyway.. You cant ever have to many guns

    So true! Everyone should own a 1911. Even if you hate handguns it should be like a law or something.

    35 = slide and barrel assembly for .40SW

    34 = slide and barrel assembly for 9mm


    EFK Firedragon makes a drop-in 9mm conversion barrel that fits into the .40SW slide, hence you can buy the G35 and get the 9mm option by only buying a barrel and mags (cost less than about $200 extra to get dual caliber gun). You can train with cheap 9mm ammo and carry .40 for defense if you want more hit.

    Prices are the same.

    Yeah, but .38 super has all the charm of a leaf blower under your window at 7AM on a Sunday....

    Bounty I hear you, don't like the round. Your first 1911 has to be a .45 w/o a doubt, then you get the other calibers.

    I'm from Australia. The only time we could carry a handgun is from home to the club, and that would be a bag which would be out of reach. For hunting only bolt action rifles. With a limit of 300winmag

    The "a" models have a longer barrel that sticks out past the slide and only come with 10 round mags, both are 9mm
