    Hi All - First post. Wondering what would be the best Glock for USPSA and GSSF. Wondering what would be better, the G24 or the G35 and is compensated version allowed or fall under "Production"? Also does the G35 come in a compensated version?

    Of the 2 you list - I think the 35 would be better .

    Most Glockers in USPSA use a 35 for the extra sight radius and major scoring benifits.


    No comp versions of any kind allowed in Production.

    The 35 doesn't come in a comp-version , but there are probably some aftermarket ported barrels somewhere..

    It depends. What divisions do you plan to shoot in USPSA and GSSF?

    If you plan to shoot Amateur/Civilian or Master Stock in GSSF and wish to use the same pistol in USPSA, then the G17 is the best choice.

    The G24's and G35's place you in Competition Category if you are an amateur as described in GSSF rules.

    There is no major/minor scoring in USPSA Production category--all are scored minor, so the best choice there might be a G34.

    A G22 would allow you to shoot the most categories between USPSA and GSSF. Download the ammo to about 130 or 135 PF for USPSA Production, GSSF Amateur, Competition, Stockmeister, Master/Unlimited. Load it to Major PF for USPSA Limited/Limited 10.

    If youi want a gun for both GSSF and USPSA...then a standard sized gun would be a good choice...a G17(9mm) or a G22(40 S&W).

    If you are into reloading, then you might want to go with the G22 and customize your 40 loads to the game you are playing.

    If you won't be reloading...the G17 in 9mm might be the better choice. You will be able to afford to shoot a lot more ammo...9mm is just plain cheaper to shoot.
