    Hey guys,

    Well I am looking for some more advice from you seasoned Glockers considered my 9mm lineup...

    In 9mm have a G26, G19 and G17 - I have a chance to buy a like new Gen 4 G34 for $590 with front nite site and have a guy who offered me $530 for my G17.

    Would you guys trade out your 17 for a 34?

    It would not be a dedicated range gun as I do enjoy carrying my 17 sometimes and I think I'd be able to carry a 34 as well.

    I have no real desire to start shooting competitively, but maybe at some point in the future.

    So, would you guys rather have your lineup be:

    26, 19 & 17

    or

    26, 19 & 34

    Thanks :supergrin:

    26, 19, 34. You have the smaller guns for concealed carry, then might as well take a slightly bigger jump to the 34 for more "precision" type shooting or if you ever compete. The G34 is such a sweet gun, my wife has stolen mine for open carry when she hikes and for the range. The 17 is arguably the best "all-rounder", if you had to have one. But you don't!

    Personally, I prefer the feel of the 34 to the 17, but each person is different. If you like it, get it.

    In theory it's not a bad idea, but I bet if you get rid of the 17 for the 34 you'll end up buying another 17 shortly down the road. I'd put a little bit of money away each paycheck until you have enough for a new 34 if that's what you really want. Guns, like underwear, are always best purchased new.

    Thank you guys very much for the replies so far...

    I have a G17 in the Dark Earth color so I was thinking of swapping frames and selling off 17...

    A Dark Earth G34 would be AMAZING - although I'm not sure if I can compete with a swap like that?

    Deep down I really kind of agree with you...

    I really like my 34 but I'm not any faster or more accurate with it than with my 17.

    If you are wanting to try a new pistol then I would go for it.

    I like my G34 better than my G17; had I known I would have two G34s and no G17s.
     
  10. I like the G34/G35 size quite a bit. it is nearly the same size as a full size 1911. the Gen 4 Glock 34/35 are a gem to shoot. I am pretty sure you will end up with another G17 down the road :). It would be the only Glock to complete the lineup

    I originally picked up a 17 and used it for competition, for carry I found it to be a little awkward at times so I sold it and bought a 19. I loved the 19 for carry and ended up with another 17 for competition. I carry the 17 when hiking and occasional winter carry. Buy what you want for your intended purposes, not ours.
