So I just put a g34 on layaway and I am having a bit of buyers remorse... can cal guns snap me out of it? Is this gun worth the price? I paid 750 after tax and dros....I am just not entirely sure about the purchase... Any input on the gun itself would be cool, any owners or good unbiased reviews by non glock fan-boy sites...thats all I can seem to find.

thanks duders

I think 750 may be too much for it. You can get them at the private firearms section for around 500-600. So unless you really need a brand new gun, Id look for a used one here.

It's there already so enjoy it when you get it out of layaway and jail time. Now if you can't get over it, ask if you can have what you put in towards something that's a better deal and you will enjoy. With the tax and DROS not reclaimable you may just want to stick with it.

I have a Glock 35 and love it. The average price of a long slide in CA is $700+, so that's the average. You can always join GSSF to buy a Glock at law enforcement prices even though you're a civilian.

Are you feeling bad for the price? Trust me you'll love your Glock Long Slide.

I'm not a Glock lover, but I do really like the Glock 34. The balance is great and the gun is definitely a shooter.

You might have been able to find it cheaper, but regardless you are going to enjoy the gun.

If the price is really bugging you, and you can back out of the deal, then look at the GSSF program. GSSF price of a G34 is $507. Add $35 for GSSF membership plus tax and DROS, and total cost ends up around $620.

That's quite a bit higher than you can get with a GSSF cert. I think G34 and G35 are fine guns and a great choice, but since this isn't a WTS thread I can freely say TOO MUCH $$$$$.

http://gssfonline.com/

I just asked LC Action the current GSSF price, they said $507 with fixed sights, and that's a brand new gun.

Like SS said with the GSSF cert the G34/35 is $507 plus tax and Dros. The gun is not worth $750 unless you really want one. I bought one with my GSSF cert and shot a couple of matches and didnt like it. Glock might run forever but they feel like cap guns. Obviously it depends on what matches/divisions you are going to shoot but I am going to try my luck with another gun. I have only been shooting for about a year and have not built any gun loyalty.

So far:
HK USP 45, Awesome not competitive
SIG 229 40, Best point and shooter, not competitive (Unless you can train for the DA pull)
Glock 34, Boring and highly competitive

I just bought a 1911 and we will see how that goes.

I love my G34. Excellent shooter and balance is perfect.

I bought mine local from Ade's for I believe $615 + tax + DROS. So probably just under $700 after everything.

1st thing I did was change the factory adjustable sights with some Dawson/Heinie sights and couldn't be happier.

You already paid for it, so don't worry about the price.

I would never sell my Glock 34. Very accurate, great ergonomics, reliable, dependable, fast. Many years from now you will forget about the price but the gun will still put a smile on your face.

For OTD that's not too bad. Mine was a bit under $700 OTD, so you're not that far off.

I shoot that gun more than everything else including my Sig 226 X-Five. That gun is so awesome my dad decided he also needed to have one even though we always shoot together.

Change the sights, buy tons of ammo/mags, and go to town!

The G34 gets the absolute most trigger time. I'd venture to say if you have other pistols they will become semi or complete safe queens.

i have and love a g35, g30 and just put a g17 in jail. i'm paying 630ish for my g17. they can be had for a lot cheaper but i love having my own never fired before guns. tell you what when you get yours let me know and we'll take out our new 9mm's and enjoy the heck out of them.
oh,(im going to catch a lot of flack for this) just one more thing. i also have a Dan Wesson PM7 that i love but to be honest my hand prefers a glock all day.
my only advise is to get some dawson adjustable sights when you can.

hahahah! I am down! I cannot wait until my Glock is granted parole! I do see that I have paid to much, but to be honest If I was to buy from buds for 615, plus shipping, dros, tax...its about 30 dollars less, and I have to wait until it ships!

I was lead to believe that the price at Bud's included delivery. If incorrect, then how much does Bud's charge for delivery?

I was under the impression Bud's covered shipping, but you still have to pay your FFL's fee for receiving a gun + DROS.

That gun is a awesome! However if its that you payed to much for it your worried about. Well ya i think anything over 550$ for a glock is a rip. I have 3 glocks i payed 499.99$ for all of them brand new. I also got them out of state tho. There is a gun shop in tracey my friend just got a g23 for 535$ there.

super amped on it, I went by the store and picked it up again and played with it.. feels soooo nice. Plus 9mm is going to be way easier to obtain than my good ole .45

any suggestions on what to buy for her, lights grips sights etc??

Ammo. Get some grip tape if you want. Otherwise, just shoot it.

I am debating between a Glock 17 and Glock 34/35...the Glock 34 are describled as tactical/practical. Are the Glock 34/35 too long to even carry concealed? Just like to know cause I am leaning towards the Glock 34/35 just cause it looks like a FUN range gun..but would like to be able to carry it if I EVER get a CCW.

thanks

Here ya go, great place to work with and good prices. They DO NOT look at our roster they basically tell you that if you haven't verified that it can be sold, its your own dumb fault so make SURE its on the roster before you have it mailed to your FFL.

You can buy me a beer later! :D

The only remorse is the price you paid. Other than that, the G34 is a great weapon!!!

Going online you will save a little bit of money but not a huge amount. Probably $50.

The 34 is a wonderful gun. I took the plunge a few years ago and was prepared to hate it, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how well it handles and shoots. Still my only piece of tupperware though.

I think a lot of you keep missing that $750 is out the door... It's not that bad a price. He could potentially save $50-60 by searching, but this one was there and he doesn't have to wait. NOT A BAD DEAL.

yah thats what i figured with tax and all the other nonsense. I called around as well and i got the best price in OC thats for damn sure... and the places i called only had floor models. I was lucky enough to pop in when they had three in the back at my store it was great!

I know for me locally, $570+$50 transfer and DROS (Yes, that is all he charges me) ends up being $620 OTD. Thats more than just $50 savings if you could find anybody near that to do a transfer for you.

You will find the the G34 is easy to shoot. Soft shooting 9mm and longer barrel and slide is easy on the eyes for target practice.

Well it does of course help to have someone to do an FFL transfer for $25 LOL.

The closest places to me all charge $50 at least, and they are supposed to charge CA sales tax.

ITTS and Falcon are both in So Cal and are highly recommended on these boards for training. Check the Competition and Training Forum for student reports on their courses. You're going to love the G34. Go shoot a thousand rounds before doing any mods. If you find it slippery get some grip tape. If you don't like the sights, change them to Heinie, Dawson, Warren or Ameriglo. Other than that resist the urge to tinker with it. There are a ton of aftermarket products on the market but your money is generally better spent on ammo and training. If you really want to have fun with your 34 go find some IDPA and/or USPSA matches to shoot.

OP there is always someone out there that can get or got a gun cheaper than what you paid for it. You paid what you paid. Don't worry about a few bucks you could have saved. Its an awesome gun. I just bought one myself today.
