Seems like the logical choice is the G34/35 vs the M&P. Longer barrel, longer site radius and longer history in the sport. But I am more drawn to the M&P. I like the way it feels. I also like the shorter barrel for occasional carry in cold weather. It just seems the Glock would have the advantage in the sporting side. However, people are starting to use the M&P despite the disadvantage of the shorter barrel. I know all about the lower bore axle but it still seems a properly setup Glock would have the advantage just because of the barrel. Am I over emphasizing the barrel length importance? Why are you choosing the M&P for "sport"? I am looking to get a IDPA/Production gun here soon and all the local people are using CZ/Glock guns in this category. I am going to get to try a G34 at the next event as well.
