    To you guys that own G-30's, do you carry it with the 10 round mag or the 9 round. I have the 10 round with the Pearce +0 ext., 9 round w/+0 PG-29 ext., and 9 round with no ext. I can shoot each equally well, like the feel of the 10 round, but I think the 9 round conceals a bit better. How do you fellas carry them, I am currious.

    Also, I carry a G-21 mag in my pocket as spare mag.

    I carry the 10 round mag and a 21 mag for a spare. My G30 came with 2 10 rounders so I son't have any 9s. I have no problem concealing it with a 10 round mag and like the extra area to grip. Now if only they'd make a 30 with a 19/23 sized grip. The mag being part of the grip doesn't count.

    I carried my old G30 for years with a 9-round mag in the pistol and a G21 mag as a spare. No extended bases.

    I carry with the glock 10 rounder. It conceals just fine. The extension for my pinky is worth more to me than a half inch of grip. Even in a t-shirt and jeans the crossbreed and nylon belt combo I wear keeps it hidden well.

    I carry mine with the 9 rounders only. I do not want magazine extensions on anything.

    Sorry but no dice on a G38, it's not a 45 ACP and can't use G21 mags. The full size mags only hold 10 rounds. To get rid of any confusion when I'm talking about the size of the grip being the same as a 19/23 I'm not talking about width, I'm talking about the length of the grip. Although it would be nice if they could but a 19 and a 30 feel equally nice in the hands.

    I wit geez, no extentions or dohickies on my carry guns.

    I carry 9 rounders flush so I can wrap my pinky underneath just like I do with the 26

    I sold all my 9rd mags. Believe it or not, when I carry with the 10rd mags, it doesn't print as much or catch on my shirts. Plus I get one more round, and a much better grip. It's easier to draw, and control during rapid fire
