When I first started GSSF, I bought my G34, thinking that would be the ticket (although it limited me to Am Comp, so I used my G22 for Am Civ). Flash forward to now - I find that the G17 that I traded into seems to shoot better than my G34 (in GSSF and Steel Challenge) and gives me better scores. Call me crazy....
As Danny said, the G17 is one of the best choices for GSSF - shoot it for now and save your pennies to pick up a G34 (or G35) later on.
PS: I still love my G34, so it isn't going anywhere.
