    Default Wierd pistol size question (G30 related)

    Ok guys, heres my question: What 9mm can I get that will fit my Glock 30 holsters? My EDC is a Glock 30 and I love it, but .45 is expensive as hell. I have a couple of really nice (read:fucking expensive) holsters that I like a lot, and would like to carry the 9mm on occasion. The same as your Glock 19 will fit in your Glock 23 holster, will the XD9c fit with the 30 holsters? M&P9c? ANy other suggestion?

    G29 would be the only one.

    Thats what I was afraid of. 10mm is pretty much the only handgun caliber MORE expensive than .45acp!

    Maybe think about reloading as another option.

    Could you convert a G30 to 9mm?

    almost any glock will fit
    all teh 9mm and .40 glocks are 30mm wide, while the 10mm and .45 are 32.5mm

    from my personal exp. unless its a kydex/REALLY stiff leather, that 2.5mm wont matter.


    what holsters do you have?
    that might help
    are they slide types? thumb breaks? IWB?
    a slide style OWB, with thumb break should work on just about any glock

    g29/30 is a wide gun, i doubt any 9mm will have a good fit in those holsters.

    Thats interesting, maybe it would be worth it to go to a shop and see if they will let me try it. To answer, my IWB/OWB options were a Crossbreed Supertuck and a Blackhawk Serpa, both of which are great. Just recently I decided to blow my wad on custom leather and got a Black Ops Pro from Pure Kustom. So far, its freaking awesome. It goes IWB like a VersaMaxII and can also be worn OWB and concealed very effectively via some "pancake" slots. I have a shitload of other cheaper holsters like we all do, but I never wear any of them.

    You can easily re-heat the CrossBreed supertuck with a hair dryer and remold it to work with many different pistols.

    I'd suggest trying your G30's holster with a G19. If your holster has a retention strap, it might work OK. A retention holster that is dependent on the fit of the gun (no strap) won't work.
    Decent holsters aren't too expensive. You can buy a nice Don Hume or Galco OWB for about $60.
    Well, pushed 60 too hard so now I am the big SIX-OH. Now I can be a real pain in the ass! And, who says growin' old isn't fun!!
