Well, after a trip to our regional training center for my bi-yearly training, I was very happy on how my G35 performed out there. At a drill near 10 feet, I put three rounds into one hole. Well, to make a long story short, most of the range staff there all talk up the 1911 (although they like to say how there are so few who can actually RUN a 1911) I noticed one thing. At least half of them were carrying Glock 9mm's. Two G34's and a G17. I got to thinking about the need for a range gun (I'm on my department's range staff...). I decided it was time to bite the bullet, and bought a G34 for practice/range duty. Pics will follow after I pick it up next week.
