    Range Glock G17 or G34?

    If anyone has experience with either the G17 or G34 I would like your thoughts on each Glock, I am looking for a range gun/competition gun and home defense, I have other guns for concealed carry.

    I will be getting a G26 at some point for another CCW so 9mm is the caliber I am interested in.

    The G34 is built for more range and competition shooting. I had a G17, great pistol but it is built more for defensive carry. The home defense role falls nicely with either pistol.

    If you want to compete then there is no question that the G34 is the better choice. It's just a better G17 and can be used for plinking and HD as well.

    If the weapon is not going to be used for carry use, the 34, no question about it.

    G34. I have a 19, and I've tried the 17, which was nice, but everything about the 34 makes it seem like it would be better suited for what you want.
