    I've already got a G19, and have thought of getting either the G34 or G35. An advantage of the 35 is that it seems like it is a little easier to get ammo when there is a shortage. Anyway, how is the accuracy of a 40 compared to a 9mm?

    All depends on the person shooting and the ammo being used.

    Generally speaking, I would think that most of the well known, higher quality guns are inherently capable of good accuracy.

    Unless you are going to sell the 19 to fund the new gun I would say stay with 9mm. Accuracy is YOUR ability to align the sights properly, my 24C gives me 2" groups @ 25 yards.

    I have both guns. They're interchangeable in terms of accuracy--both very capable out of the box.

    I don't know that .40 will be any more available, but it will be a little more expensive. If that's your concern,it's time to start rolling your own, man!

    I think it depends on the loads. My G35 is really accurate, and is noticeably more accurate than my G34 when shooting 147s in the G34. Shooting 115s in the G34 they are about equal in accuracy.

    I'm more accurate with the .40SW than any other gun. Go get the G35.

    I like both quite a bit and they are equal in accuracy assuming you know sight alignment and trigger control. Anyone who is saying one is more accurate than the other is saying it is more accurate for them rather than any real mechanical accuracy between the two. Early .40 pistols of various makes had accuracy issues mostly because they were .40 caliber slapped into an existing 9mm pistol. Because of this the .40 has a bad rep for accuracy to this day. You could always get a Glock 35 and put a 9mm barrel and mags in it for shooting 9mm. Or .357 in a Glock 35 for that matter.

    This..and get a 9mm and 357sig conversion kit . I have had my g35 for 5 years and wouldn't trade it for anything. It's pin point accurate , smooth...very smooth. Recoil is nonexistent and it makes a great HD pistol with a Streamlight Trl-1 attached. Great looking pistol Gig, mine looks the same..

    G34, more ammo on board. Unless you just want a 40. In a self defense weapon, no big diffrence. Both poke small holes. The G34 allows you to make more holes. I pack one everyday, unless I need a compact weapon then its the G30.
