Took some friends from work to the range. Grabbed some of my brother's guns he's storing here for a little variety. My CEO and I were competing to see who could shoot a couple of thumbtacks at 25 yards. After shooting terribly with my beloved Kimber Custom CDP II at that range (did well at other ranges with it), I grabbed my brother's Glock 34 in 9mm and BAM, nailed them. Trigger wasn't as crisp but somehow the Glock felt better. Now I'm considering a Glock 34 or Glock 35.... Oh, the decisions! Hope my Hi Power and 1911s will forgive me.

Pick up a 4" K-frame and do the same thing.

I'm pretty sure it's due to the "surprise" trigger break.

I find, now and again, it's good to check for flinching with SA handguns, whether they be revolver or auto.

Happens to everyone Sir. I very much think that this may be the problem.

My brother has first generation G17 that I shoot better than any other out of the box centerfire bottom feeder that I have ever shot. The only pistol to that I have ever done better with was a Jim Clark, Jr, custom Colt 1911 in 9mm that was customized specifically for PPC.

Glocks generally shoot well. They just have those that love them and those that hate them. A lot of folks shoot better with the 1911 than anything else. With the exception of the 9mm version mentioned above this ahas not been the case for me.

I really like the feel of the 34/35 models. I would go with the 9mm version though. This is Glocks best performing caliber.

Hi there,

"Guns are like shoes, you need different styles for different occasions." Its all about ergonomics.

I've owned several different glocks and several different 1911's. I am engendered with Glocks percieved softer recoil in its compact and full size frame versions. It fits fits my hand very well and allows me to get a closer hand to bore axis hold on the pistol. Therefore, I tend to shoot it more accurately--particularly in the 9MM loading.

I also have great confidence in my Colt series 80 Combat Target .45. It fits well and with the right ammunition will cut ragged holes at 15 yards.

The gun I absolutely shoot the best with is my FEG PJK 9HP 9mm Hi Power clone. With a steel frame and moderate recoil, I have not done better.

Which gun do I carry and take with me on out of town trips? My Glock 23 in .40 Smith and Wesson.
