    I carry mine every waking moment of every day. It is not too big to carry and it conceals well.

    I do carry a G30. It is my, overall, favorite Glock. I have carried it IWB, but found it much more comfortable in an OWB holster (I'm using a Hume 721OT) under an untucked shirt. Either way I don't find it to be too big. What I notice most is the weight, but then that is partly because you can jam 10 or 11 rounds into it (and it is hard to complain about that kind of capacity).

    What he said ! I use the same Don Hume H721OT with a shirt untucked to cover it . Don Hume holsters rock and so does the G30 . The G30 to me is about the same size as a G19 only a little thicker. I use the flush fitting 9 rd mag for mine. It doesnt have the huge fat base plate that the 10 rd ones have .

    It all depends on your body type, dress and holster you use. I think its a great carry gun.

    I carry a G30SF every day in a Theiss IWB holster. While a bit bigger and heavier than lets say a 26 or 19, its comparable to my 23 and not a problem to carry.

    a good belt and holster go a long way, i carry full size firearms due to preferred shooting comfort/confidence than a little more carry comfort and loose the comfort in the shooting aspect. the king tuk allows me to carry under an XL tee shirt and im 6'1" 185 lbs, id forget im carrying if i didn't elbow it on occasion

    Someday I will make the jump to the G30, replacing my G23 as my EDC gun.

    I carry mine IWB in a Comp-Tac MTAC holster, and agree with the others that a good belt and a good holster make all the difference in the world.

    dont rule out the 29, underwood makes wonderful 10mm rounds that are stock glock tested and the 10mm a cannon

    I carry the G30 IWB using a cheap clip on holster. It was an annoyance UNTILL I got a good belt. Solid leather, very strong, it doesn't pull away from my body or pull pants down at all.

    Get a good belt and you can carry all day and night. I often have to bang it into something to remember its there.

    I carry a G29sf almost every day and have no issue at all with it. I am also 6'1'' and 225lbs so it kinda disappears IWB for me. I recently picked up a Galco King Tuck for it which feels really well.

    Same here! It makes carrying a pistol of this size much more comfortable. It also holds it firmly in place.

    Crossbreed Supertuck when dressed normally. DeSantis Apache when in 19th-C garb onstage. No problem.

    As suggested this has more to do with personal preference and build than anything but I have succesfully concealed a G30. I like the size of the G26 better though.

    Not as concealable as smaller handguns but once you get used to it you won't notice the difference.
