20 years ago an untrue rumor went thru my town which was handgun sales would be banned. So, I bought a G19 (gen 2) for my first CCW pistol. I never could get myself to like shooting it. I would only shoot it enough to remain proficient with it. It became just another tool in the tool box. Well, I bought a G34(gen4) last week and took it to the range today, 250 rnds later, I LIKE IT ! Filled up and rotated all 3 magazines. Not one hiccup. Pull the trigger, bang, action cycled , repeat. Trigger pull is great, pistol is accurate. Brass all ejected at 3-4 o'clock, 5-6' away. No brass to face, not one! I have never wanted to reload 9mm, but, now I will.
