    The one in the Avatar is a Glock 22 with the X200B, SL-11 tape switch, then Ameriglo Combat Master rear sights and a tritium front. I'll get pics of the new one as soon as It's finished.

    Justin was tempted by Satan - Satan won!

    Well - if I get a Glock sometime it'll be a 17 first - then a 19.

    Chris if you want one as a range gun and one as a carry I can recommend the 34 as a range or field cary gun.

    Almost the sight radius as a 17L but easier to find a holster to fit it plus the extended mag and slide release.

    Though there is nothing wrong with a 17, that was my first Glock. And the particular one I owned one of the most accurate ones in 9mm beisdes my 17L.

    I also consider the 19/23 size as one of the best all around models for either CC or open carry.

    Ed - well, unlikely I will stop SIG carry anytime soon - so not thinking of carry really - just want one ''because"

    I am still somewhat of a greenhorn re Glocks and have only shot 17 and 19 mainly. I must look up spec's on 34 - it is probably one I know least about. You have piqued my interest!

    I have a 26 and it is by far my favorite firearm. The 26 will be my ccw when I get my chl. 900rds and not a single malfunction or complaint. Easy to clean. Very compact and yet shockingly accurate. I plan on getting a 17 for my next gun purchase.
