    Anyone carry a Glock 34 or 35 concealed?

    Does anyone here carry a Glock 34 or 35 concealed?

    I'm looking at switching to a Glock 35 as a duty gun and am curious if it is feasable to carry it concealed when off-duty.

    I know of a couple of people who do so...

    The grip won't be any different than a 17/22 so I think the main factor will be whether you can be comfortable with the extra barrel length.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    The bodyguard in the film 'Man on Fire' carried a long-barreled Glock. He concealed it in an OWB leather holster under a suit coat IIRC. BTW, anyone know which Glock it was exactly?

    I don't but some of our officers use the 34, its clone of my 17 with an inch added...thats it
    allows barrel/frame to be flush or actually stick farther out than the tac light mounted on the ones I saw
    as for concealing....its longer and we know what that means

    I have a Glock 34 that I sometimes carry. I went to Milt Sparks and ordered a custom VersaMax II specifically for it with a custom belt. I do not find the extra barrel length to be a problem and it carries well. I do not carry a light on it. I do find that the grip can dig a little after carrying for a day. I did make the following modifications to my G34:

    A. I filed the magazine release down a little (next time I would just install a G17 magazine release).
    B. I installed Trijicon Novak style night sights (next time I would go with an even larger green tritium lamp for the front insert).

    I think the only drawback specific to the longer barrel length for me is that the grip moves around more when I walk. Specific to me, I am on my third trigger spring and I once busted the rear sight during a tactical drill.

    So to specifically answer your question it can make a great concealed carry.

    It was the 34, in an OWB kydex holster under a (lol..) Hawaii shirt. :p

    I would love to get a G35 myself and have thought about how well it would work as a concealed carry gun. I carry a G23 now.

    Ahhhh. I was about to say that I thought it was a 17. But after reading your post I realize there was a 34 and 17.

    To the OP. Not to discourage you, but remember that long slide may be a pain to draw from a high riding holster. Just consider what your off-duty set up is. A 23 or 22 might suit you better. I use a 23 on duty and have no problem shooting tight groups out to 25 yards.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Not when he's driving the principal to school and the guys run up to the car at the intersection. He was wearing a gray suit and I'm pretty sure it was a leather holster.

    He uses the same kydex holster under the suit and the shirt.
