    The 34 is nice and would be okay for duty use. However, if you're planning to carry the same gun off duty, I'd go with the 17 though the 19 would be a little easier to hide under light clothing in those sauna-like, south-Texas summers.

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

    I have a 22, 23, 27 and 35 (I know they 30s instead of 9s, but the size is the same). Since you have the 26 I'd go for the 34...our issue for Field Ops is the 35. We have used them since Glock introduced them (1st dept in the country to issue 35s). They are supurb for duty use and the M3 and Surefire lights fit them perfectly, not extending past the muzzle. They are no harder to conceal than the 22 because the grip is the same. The longer sight radius is a plus.

    This gun will primarily be used for duty carry. So don't worry about concealment. I have a 26 for BUG and off duty, however if I want to carry the duty gun off duty and I can manage to conceal it I will. But if I can't I'm completely comfortable with the 26.

    The only problem I find with the 34 is I can't use AFO sights (I think thats it). They are the Tritum/Fiber Optic combo. I have them on my 26 and love them.
    Yeah I like Glocks, wanna fight about it!

    My G34 has the tritium Fiber optic sights on it.

    ok, here it goes. if you are carrying a glock 26 as your "bug" then you should carry a glock 17 and/19 as primary. keep mags and ammo the same when you are on the job. the old K.I.S.S. method. i carry a glock 27 on duty except during "raids" and then i carry the glock 23, with the glock 27 as the "bug". the glock 23 mags fit the glock 27, so things work well. just remember K.I.S.S. when it come to the job.
