It is sounding that I should go with the 30, but I will go handle both at the shop today. I will let you all know what I think.

That's what really counts is which feels better to YOU and how much weight YOU are willing to lug around. Good luck, you won't go wrong with either

Good advice ^^^

If you're going to OC, with all things being equal, then may as well go with the full size (21) strictly for more capacity...

The 30 will take the 13 rd mags from the 21 but they are going to hang out of the mag well a good bit...

I've got a 21 and a 36 and they are both great guns. For CCW I really think the 30/30s/30SF/36 is a better choice. The 21 is great for HD or OC but it's much harder (but not impossible) to CC.

I carry a 21, usually in cool weather. However, in warm weather I have no problem concealing it under an untucked, oversized t-shirt. Just a comment on cc as I know that you are open carrying.

What are you raylor givings, U.S.marshal no. A 21 is way to big to conceal, period. Out in the open fine, it's a big bore and a big gun that shot 230 gr bullets!

I had the 36 and it would not work so I traded for a 30. Best move I ever made! I had handled the 30 before and passed on it because I didn't like the fat grip and the 36 felt so much better. It (36) was accurate and I liked shooting it but it would not run. I was a bit ambivalent about trading for the 30 but wanted out from under the 36. The 30 is so accurate and surprisingly easy to handle even with 230 grain ball. It always works for me so I'd have to vote for it!

Interesting. I have a 36 I've put hundreds of rounds through (both JHP & FMJ) without a single issue to date. I have heard of other people who experienced problems with the 36 so perhaps I'm just one of the lucky ones!

I carry my 21 quite a bit ...... Concealed and open I have bigger hands and I like the 21 for carry purposes. I would recommend the 21..... You have 2 magazines to choose from with high capacity the 13 rd and the 10 round..... I carry the 10 rd loaded and have the 13 rd loaded on me as well so heaven forbid you will ever have to use it in a self defense situation anybody with any law enforcement or military training are required to count shots and if you have to empty your first mag it automatically enters their head that you are shooting 10 plus 1 when in reality you have an extra 2 they are not expecting. That it self could be difference in life or death
