29SF or 33 for the summer?

I'm torn, I love my 32 for the other 3 seasons but I want something else for the hot months, yes I like the "diva" cartridges but my part time job is at a WELL stocked gun shop... decisions decisions

I don't think the G29 is any smaller than your G32

Yeah I've never handled a 29sf, the 32 is fine just a tad large for the summer I think and I dont like IWB holsters.

Edit to mention I'm not familiar on round count in the 29

The G29sf is about the same size of the G32, only it is thicker.

The G33 is the same thickness as the G32 only shorter in grip and barrel length. Identical to a G26

So I just got to the gun shop, yeah the 29sf is out...may look into a 27 since I already have a 32 and a 23 barrel. We got in a shipment of Glocks and there is a 29sf and a 30s in it, boss said I should buy a Sky Clip and carry the 32...Not sure about that, thoughts?

It's not safe to carry a Glock with a round in the chamber without a holster that covers the trigger guard. Is your boss trying to get rid of you?

My summer carry usually depends on what the dress of the day is. At work I carry my Ruger LCP on my ankle along with my NAA Pug in my front pocket. I also rotate my J frame on my ankle as well.

On weekends I carry my G26 or my G36.

He doesnt care, I'm part time! LOL no thats the way most of the guys carry in the summer but with the little guard thingy on it. I'm full time with the Air Guard and I'm sure they would mind if I had an AD!

I would avoid the "guard thingy." But I admit I have a different perspective on alot of things, including prefering a larger handgun in the summer whenever possible.

If you consider thickness it is larger.

If the op wants something smalller than his 32 the 33 frame size is his only choice in a Glock.

I would say 26/27/33, and stay with the same width unless you really want 10mm.

I've been shooting G21/30, and recently got 31 & 33.
To me, the thickness makes difference, and I need to adjust/get used to it before too long.

I have a G30 as EDC but wished having a 26/27/33 in the past.
