Welcome to the Glock Forum law...!!

To answer your question, the G17 is the original with a barrel length of 4.49 inches as compared to the G34 which is marketed as the "competition" model with a barrel length of 5.32 inches and a longer sight radius...so for target shooting on the range the nod would go to the G34, IMO. Both have a standard mag capacity of 17 rounds, with non-standard mags holding more.

Ditto on what Shooter said. If it is strictly for range use and competition, G-34 all day long. I have a 34 and that is all I use it for.

I love my 34 for range duty. I would even use it for self defense duty or tactical use, but wouldn't recommend trying to carry one concealed.

I love my 34. The only thing I will eventually change is the sights on it, not fond of the the adjustables from the factory. Aside from that, the 34 is a solid performer right out of the box.

I used it as my CCW for a week while I was having a minor repair done on my 5" 1911. Although it's not ideal for it, I was actually able to conceal it very comfortably. I guess being a bigger guy makes it a little easier to conceal a bigger gun.

Being a big guy definitely makes CCW easier... I carried my duty weapon (G21) as my off duty weapon for many years. The grip blended nice with my love handles. My G19 is virtually invisible now! :)
