    They do have Kydex bodies for the MTAC that were made for the G34. Since it's about the same length as a 1911, I would imagine it's not too difficult to conceal

    i carry a glock 34 cuncled all the time. finding a holster no problem. to make it even better i cut the but frame off to accept a fifteen round magazine now i have a frame like compact glock 19 and a glock 34 slide makes a beautiful combunation.

    I was able to CCW a G34 with a Comp-Tac holster. The only thing I didn't like was the grip was printing against a t-shirt. I think with the proper cant you can probably find a nice medium. Surprisingly, the weight wasn't an issue. It was quite comfortable.

    I carry a 34 during the winter when I have jeans on (and sometimes a coat). It gets pretty hot here during the summer though, and I switch to my 19.

    I'm larger than you, but carry a gov't model 1911 most everyday, which is essentially the same size as a G34. The slide length isn't the problem it's the full length grip that is the challenge to conceal. Using an IWB holster with a forward cant will help a lot as it will reduce the front to back horizontal length of the grip.

    The G34 and G35 are pretty popular guns so you shouldn't have too much of a problem finding a holster and there is plenty of help here to point you in the right direction.

    I carry a full sized steel framed 1911 OWB everyday and am very comfortable doing so. Of course, I am a bit larger than you at 6 ft, 240 lbs and of large build. However, I don't think you would have any issues with a proper belt and holster.

    I've conceal carried a G17 and a fullsize 1911...I can't imagine the G34 being any more difficult than those. The full length grip will be more of a problem than the longer slide.

    I routinely CC a G17, or G31. You notice the gun is there. You will most definately be challenged to CC a G34.
