    OK..I admit that I don't know much about Glocks...
    Have fired 200 round thru a G17 at the range and 50 thru a G34.
    But, I am going to buy one of these girls soon as my primary handgun for IDPA fun and so far I like the trigger and other characteristics of the G17.
    In fact I enjoyed shooting the G17 more and shot better groups with it???
    Am I a bit strange? Or is it possible that the G17 may be a better choice for some people for competitive shooting than the G34

    I have the G34 and I like it fine, but I'm sure someone could draw a G17 a shade faster and I bet these models shoot equally well given the same skill.

    The Glock 34 is one of my favorites. Aesthetically pleasing and balanced. As it comes from the factory, the trigger's pretty light. I'd go with an NY-1 spring just to get a firmer reset.

    Still, the 17 is spiff. The 34 just seems spiffier.
