Default Holster for a Glock 30

Hello all! I'm new here on FirearmsTalk.com. I'm also the new proud owner of a Glock 30 (non SF). Do any of you guys have any advice on a good holster? I've been to my local Cabelas and my local Impact Guns (great gun store!) and I've seen a few different holsters that can accommodate the Glock 30.

I'm looking for either a strong side or cross draw holster (I'm a right handed shooter) that I can wear on the outside of my pants. An IWB holster just won't work for my body type and daily routine.

Any advice you guys can give me will be greatly appreciated!

I carry a Glock 30 also, and I have three holsters for it. They're all paddle holsters, since I have to disarm to go inside a couple of places on a daily basis.

My favorite is from iTAC. It's a kydex holster that's adjustable to virtually any angle. The gun locks into the holster and is released by a button along the side, right where my trigger finger goes when drawing.

I also have a Blackhawk Serpa. This can be worn as a paddle holster or a belt holster, though Blackhawk now has a line of Serpas that only come with a paddle. It also has adjustable cant, but fewer angles, and it has the same kind of button release as the iTAC. The fit for this holster was a bit snug for my liking.

Both of these holsters were actually made for the Glock 21, but will accept a Glock 30. This makes for a longer holster that is a little harder to conceal, but the excess can be cut off.

And I have a Desantis Viper. It's a leather holster, with adjustable cant and a thumb break, that is built for the Glock 30. I like that it is the correct (shorter) length and that it rides a little high — both things make it easier to conceal.

My personal reason for preferring the iTAC is that, once the button is pressed, it releases more easily, which makes it quieter. I want the option of being able to remove the gun quietly in case something is developing but I haven't been spotted by the BGs yet. Such as someone robbing a store where I am shopping. I'd like to be able to draw without attracting attention so I can protect myself if I'm overheard using my cell phone. Your priorities may vary.

Thanks utf59! I've checked out the DeSantis and the iTEC stuff on a few different web sites and I like what I see. Thanks for the info!

I've got a G30 SF and I use the Bladetech 5.11 kydex paddle holster on the strong side. It's a good, secure holster!

They are taking orders now, but expect to wait up to six months to get it.

One of the best holsters I had for my former G30 was a Don Hume J.I.T Slide holster. Simple and functional. Other than that, if you want to drop around $85 on an excellent one, take a look at Mitch Rosen's upper limit holsters...the express line.

The Mitch Rosen holsters look like some fine holsters! They're on my short list for sure!

I'm not selling them. Just want to give you some pics of my G27 in one of the Upper Limit holsters. Paid $75 for it way back when my first carry was my G27, and it's still with me today as one of the best I have. For the sub-compact Glocks, and an ultra-high ride on the belt, nothing touches it IMO.

A picture is worth a thousand words! Thanks Ram Rod! I need mine ride on my hip just like that in order to be comfortable.
