Practical Match Pistols: Pro9, P30L, and G34 Gen4 Compete
The Smith & Wesson Pro9 and Heckler & Kochs P30L are match gun candidates with real potential. Glocks G34 Gen4 redefines Safe-Action. We give the nod to the European imports.
In the February 2012 issue, we tested five high-capacity semi-automatic 9mm handguns that were aimed at the Practical Shooting competitor. Practical Shooting evolved from experimentation with handguns used for self-defense. One characteristic that separates Practical Shooting from other organized pistol competition is that the scoring takes into account the amount of time it takes to deliver the required number of shots for each course of fire. So, fast-action gun handling, as well as quick, precise shots becomes an integral part of the shooter's score. In this test, we'll pay particular attention to features and components that make the guns faster and easier to operate, as well as more accurate.
