Because the g34 is my ccw, and I think that if you are going to carry a gun, you might as well have something that is better that the average of all
handguns. IPSC race guns, are good for ccw. Keep in mind that if you get into a gunfight, you will likely be facing a rifle or a shotgun, so a good
hi-cap auto will help you get away much better than a 5-shot .38 or .357. Also with the 34, you get 17 in the magizine, and it is easy to carry 4-5
extra magizines. That is a pretty good amount of firepower even if you face more than one threat.
If you think I'm crazy, go to an IDPA match, which is geared toward CCW and try it with a snub nose revolver, and then try it with a good auto, and
see what the difference is, and if you feel like you suck with the snub, don't carry it. A .38 5 shooter with a 2" is worthless after about 15
yards. I can hit beer cans at 50 yards with the g34.
So I'm sticking with my suggestion, carry something that you can shoot accurately, and that has lots of power and or capacity.
