    I think the 34 is generally probably a bit big for concealed carry.

    Great pistol, would use one as a competition gun in a heartbeat, but have a hard time seeing why one would be a better option than a 19 for carry (if one wants to stick with a Glock).

    A glock 34 is roughly the same size as a full sized 1911, but lighter. So yes it can be carried though I wouldn't.

    A little too manly for me.....G26 or 19, occasionally my 17 OWB for the Glock family outings....

    The 17 takes the same magazines and is easier to carry. ALSO the 34 is made to be a competition model and comes with a lighter trigger (and a couple other extras) which is not always the best thing to have in a SD situation when you MIGHT put pressure on the trigger too soon.

    I have both and love both but wouldn't carry my 34 even OWB for that reason.

    The 19 holds 15 plus one, which is only 2 rounds less than either the 17 or the 34 and is generally considered to be a fantastic carry gun.............I have that also and do CC it sometimes.

    Just something to think about.

    Carry the G19 and use G17 mags in it, that's what I do. When I carry my G26 I still use the G17 mags. I have a G34 but it is more of a range gun.
