    Like many others, I prefer the G34 but if you want to get really good with your carry gun, there is nothing wrong with giving it a go.

    If its just for practice, then I say go ahead.

    But, if you are going to be serious about competition, then I would say no. It would be a big disadvantage shooting against people with full size guns. People say they shoot them just as well but I don't buy that for a second. If it doesn't matter, then why do the top GM shooters all shoot full size guns?

    I know. When I here people say they shoot a G26 better than a G34, I think it's time for them to practice more with the 34. :cool:
  5. I always associate that statement with the person being equally poor with both guns.

    I understand the reasoning. I use a customized CZ SP-01 for IDPA but am thinking of going back to my G19 setup to practice with what I usually carry concealed. I shoot for fun and improvement without expectations of winning. Nothing wrong with those who compete with race guns that they will never carry. Skills improve either way you approach the game. Do what you like.

    I do like seeing my name move higher on the final standings sheet at my local club but the great feeling for me is finishing a stage with a decent time and down zero. Doesn't happen often.
