Glock 35 Gen 4 .40 S&W

The Glock 35 is a competition style pistol created for competitors in the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA)National Rifle Association (NRA) competitions, and the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA). The Glock 35 (G35) is made with an incredibly light polymer frame, with an extra-long slide, to increase the line of sight to increase accuracy at further distances. On top of the slide, there is a cut-out exposing the top of the barrel to decrease the weight of the gun. All other Glocks we’ve reviewed are 9mm pistols, and as we all know, the .40mm S&W provides much more kick than any 9mm. With this in mind, the most impressive attribute of this gun is its ability to maintain pinpoint accuracy, shot after shot, with a more powerful bullet.

Why You Should Buy The Glock 35

The G35 would be an amazing gun for anyone to own, but I think competitive shooters and law enforcement are its target consumers. The G35 is very big and difficult to conceal and wouldn’t be comfortable or even feasible for many civilians to conceal carry. Law enforcement pros are switching to this gun over the standard Glock 22 due to it’s follow up shot accuracy and stopping power. One thing to consider is the G35 is a much bigger gun but has its upside, which we discuss below.

Where Can I Buy The G35?

RK Guns is the place to buy your guns if you live in a rural area and want to save money on the FFL transfer fees. The only comparable stores would be Walmart and Dicks Sporting Goods, but RK Guns are typically less expensive and they have a much larger selection of guns. RK Guns has slightly better prices than Palmetto State Armory, but not if you’re a Veteran or law enforcement officer. The discount and warranty given by Palmetto State makes the majority of their pistols less expensive than any other store. The Glock 35 from Palmetto State is highlighted below just in case you want to compare.

Kel-Tec PLR-16 .22 LR Pistol

The PLR by Kel-Tec is one of the most unique pistols you’ll shoot because it fires the same 5.56 NATO round used in the M4 and M16 rifles and it’s semi-auto fire rate. The PLR 16 is designed to be as versatile as possible with its 400 meter max effective range and small size. You can hunt animals as big as dear with this rifle caliber pistol, but make sure you read the caliber regulations for each state. I love the idea of carrying this pistol in my hiking and camping backpack because it’s powerful enough to take down any predator and light enough to carry without too much weight. Weighing only 3.19 lbs and 18.5″ in length, this pistol will fit perfectly in your camping, hiking, and hunting bag without making it too bulky, heavy, or obvious.

S&W M&P M2.0 Compact 9MM Pistol

M&P M2.0 9mm pistol is one of the most well liked pistols around because of its combination of recoil control and its sleek design, which is accustomed from S&W. Having a 16-round capacity ensures you won’t be outgunned in a fight for your life. Being able to put 16 rounds through a pistol with as much control as you get with the S&W M&P compact is very difficult to find in any other gun. I actually like this pistol more than the Glock 19 because it has a manual safety and makes me feel more comfortable carrying it.

The lowered and widened (flared) ejection port gives the Kimber a clean and smooth ejection and reload, after every shot.
