    Second question. I plan on purchasing more Glocks. Should I sell Gen3 and all be Gen4

    If I have a Gen 3 34 should I just go ahead and get a Gen 4 34 because the other guns I will get like a Gen 4 35 will have the same grip and feel. If I keep the Gen 3 it will have a different grip and I am afraid it will affect my shooting when I put it down and pick up a Gen 4. I know there is not much difference between the two guns but I thought Gen 4 on all my competition Glocks would be best. The Gen 4 34 is supposed to have less recoil but I have heard than the Gen 3 but I have heard it does not. I also want the option to add The new optics site but you have to order it so you can add it in the future. I already have a buyer for the G 34 and I could remove the ZEV trigger and put the original back in. So Glock experts help this novice out please.

    The finish is better on Gen 3s.

    I have both Gen 3 & 4's and can not tell the difference, this is a personal thing.

    The benefit of Gen 4's is their ability to tame the recoil on hotter rounds, like 10mm and .40.

    Gen. 3 is still my preference in 9mm and .45. The recoil is practically nonexistent already and I prefer the grips and slide finish.

    Good Morning,

    Muscle memory, familiarity, proficiency, confidence- all should be considered, when acquiring new, or different, weapons. In standardizing your weapons, based upon the previously mentioned parameters, you may have the benefit of standardized parts, whether internals and/or magazines. In any SHTF or survival scenario, logistics will remain king. Likewise, a subset of familiarity is indexing. Being able to continuously/repeatedly/reliably do fast reloads, acquire targets with no change in sight picture, and clear failures of all types, are indicative of confidence and skill levels that become instinctual. Naturally, like precision is the constant goal of any shooter, practice, practice, practice does not breed contempt, but survival skill sets that will enable you to survive when things go pear-shaped...

    We are blessed that the ergonomics of the Glock line of weapons are nearly uniform, caliber/purpose, not withstanding. make each shot count- there are no guarantees of a second chance.

    I have G21's, 30's, and have finally graduated to a 34 Gen 4. I had internals polished and where necessary, replaced with the best available parts. Use the best tool for the job. Caliber? Whatever you feel best using, keeping in mind the beginning of my post: Muscle memory, familiarity, proficiency, confidence. With Glock, I do not believe one can go wrong... To me, it's the finest handgun line extant, and it's what I rely upon...

    Hope this helps...

    No! No! Hell No! Keep those Gen-3's they have the better finish! Buy all the Gen-4's you want but keep those Gen-3's if you can.-Cowboy
