Don't you love topics that have no definitive answer? Yea, this is one of those...
So at the beginning of the year, I decided I wanted to try USPSA. I did a bunch of reading on the interwebs, (instead of the USPSA rulebook).
l just wanted a gun that I didn't have to hassle with, one that just ran. So the smart money said get a G35, and shoot Production with a drop in 9mm barrel. So I got a G35, and run it with a KKM conversion barrel, and TTI sights. It works great. Eats the cheapest Russian ammo, decent accuracy, and almost never bobbles.
But - as you all well know (and I know now), you can't shoot a G35 in Production with 9mm... And all the guys on the PPS say that's where the heat is, whatever that even means.
I've got a nice rig, all the mags I need, and I like my G35, so I'm going to get either a G17 or a G34. The question is, which one?
Not having a G17, I'm wondering if it's easy to hit with as the G34, or is the extra length worthwhile?
