Which one should I get?

I already have 2 G19's,G27,G23 and a G32.

I know 9mm cheaper to shoot, but with today's hi-quality defense ammo how much stopping power is there really between 147gr 9mm and 180gr .40sw?

I really hope Glock comes out with a factory .357sig barrel for the G35!(I know there are aftermarket barrels avaiable, but I'd rather a factory one)

I'm getting a G34 first (since I have a ton of mags and ammo on hand) but eventually I'm going to get a G35. Sooooooooo, get both!

M4arc, I should've expected that answer!

My plans are to get a G34 or G35 and then a Kimber TLE/RLII eventually!

I would like a G34 OD and blk G35, but funds won't allow for that yet!

Get the G-35 and then change the ejector block to the 9mm one (it actually works better, 3 o'clock ejection instead of 12:30) then you could get the 9mm conversion barrel to hold you over until you can afford a G-34, then sell the barrel. It is not like I have not given much thought to all this out ya know.

Alot of use are having this problem. I would like to buy both but my wallet doesn't agree. I'm leaning towards the G34. Anyone want to talk me into the G35????

Get the 34. You will save alot of money buying 9mm.

If you are going to go 9mm, then use 115gr +P+ or 124gr +P Gold Dot or Golden Saber. 147 is a little lacking...

I have 2 Glock 9mm's & 2 Glock .40's, I've quite a bit of ammo of both stockpiled, so the cost of ammo is really no concern. It will end up being my nightstand gun, so I'm more concerned with stopping power? I know, use a .223 or 12ga if I want stopping power, but my protection will be either a G34 or G35! Is today's premium ammo good enough in 9mm(124gr+P+ or 147gr+P) or is .40sw(165gr or 180gr) that much better, I know, shot placement! I just like how these choices of Glocks feel & point and I totally believe in their reliability!

I'm pretty much decided on the........................................G35, unless I find an extra sweet deal on a G34!

I really want a Kimber TLE/RLII, but I'm afraid if I have a few malfunctions in the first 500-1000rds, I won't ever be able and trust it! Anybody know the feeling?

Before you ask, the G21 is just too big for my hands to be comfortable with, now if Glock would come up with a single stack 10rd tactical/practical, well all bets are off!

G34, it's my favorite Glock.

Ammo is relatively cheap and so are the mags.

I'd have to agree. I have the 35 and did this. I changed the extractor, ejector and got the KKM conversion barrel. It works great.
