    34" barrels on one gun will be entirely different than 34" barrels on a different gun. The dynamics of a 34" Perazzi O/U may be entirely different than 34" O/U barrels on, say, a Kreighoff. You need to shoot one for yourself to decide which you like, swing, and shoot the best. I have shot 30", 32", and 34" Perazzi O/U barrels and prefer the 32" barrels much more, and shoot them much better than the other two. In all fairness, however, the 32" O/U barrels on my DB-81 may be entirely different than a set of 32" barrels on a MX-8, or whatever. The ONLY way to find out is to shoot them yourself. There is no rule of thumb as to which is better. The proof of which is better is the one you shoot the highest score with..... Just my opinion... Dan Thome (Trap2)
