Im possibly looking at picking up a 9mm Glock, but I was wondering which would last longer? And which generation will outlast the other. I hear stories of Glock 17's lasting well into the 100's of thousands of rounds, but never hear those reports on the G34. I love the alongside, but want something that will last long term as when I retire I will be pretty much shut off from buying new guns. What are the thoughts from the "Brain Trust".
