I Hate having Politics dictate what one should consider buying. Unfortunitly I am worried about the possiblity of these Policital Idiots banning Glocks all together. I really have been wanting a Model 34, mainly because of the availbility of 9mm ammo. I've had several Glocks before but sadly find myself Glockless at the moment. Due to the crazy buying of anything that comes into the Gunshops you almost have to be satisfied with what you can get your hands on. My local dealer has just gotten in several Glocks, but sadly no model 34's. So I am thinking of settleing on a model 17, not thts there's anything wrong with them but I really want the 34. I know it's impossible to predict what will happen with the Gun Ban mania but I would appreciate any advice.
