    Other than the obvious - the G34s sight radius and more weight upfront - are there any other advantages of a G34 to a G17?

    Does the G17 have any advantages over the G34?

    Finally, I can't find anything in the USPSA book addressing FIBER OPTIC inserts in Production. OK, or forbidden?

    Grassy ass!

    I prefer the 34 as I feel is has a better balance. The 34 will be slightly slower on transitions and the 17 slightly faster. The 34 will shoot a bit softer than the 17 as well.

    FO's are okay to use.

    Maybe the since the 17 is shorter, you can manuver the gun around faster...just a thought...
