    If anybody out there carries a Glock 35 as a duty weapon (you lucky dog), what holster do you carry it in? How do you like it?

    I love the .357 SIG and carry the G-32 in a Raptor. That holster ain't exactly "intuitive" to operate, but it sure is secure and fast enough when you practice with it.

    BTW, anybody tried running a .357 conversion barrel in their Glock 35? How'd it do? Accurate? Reliable? I've learned to distrust the customizing of Glocks, but hey: I'm open-minded (...and always ready to blow some hard-earned money on new toys)! ;Q

    The Kentucky State Police do! I dont know what holster.

    I spoke to a Nevada Trooper who agrees with you on the Raptor holster, but I have never tried it.

    I have a KKM .357sig barrel for my 35 and love it, shoots great and with the added weight the recoil is much milder than my son's 31
    I am thinking about reloading for it, once you buy the dies which are double the price 9mm bullets are pretty cheap.

    Tried the 35 as a duty weapon with a Safariland 6280 holster. Seemed like the holster was always being pushed up while sitting in the Crown Vics.

    I wondered how it would ride in a car. My Beretta seems to ride high for the seat, so I thought the G-35 would too.

    Yea they are about the same. I love my 35 though, it is worth a little push up to keep it on my side. Love that thing.

    I do wish that they would make the 35 size gun availble in 357.

    I carry a G35 in a Safariland 070. Been using that model holster for maybe 8 years, and for the G35 I had to special order it and wait about a month. One holster each, for duty and for class A.

    Bought a Barsto .357 conversion barrel from a forum member and it works great.

    I don't have the G24 anymore.

    Doesn't the G35 have too light a trigger pull for a duty weapon?

    Most LE Equipment and Firearm dealers will not sell them with the 3.5lb trigger option. The one I got from OMBPS came with a 5lb trigger. There are some liability concerns with the lighter trigger in some areas.
