Gear Review: Bianchi Holster for the Glock 30S

by David Higginbotham, Guns.com  |  published on April 14, 2013

I’m enamored with the Glock 30S. The double-stack .45ACP is both robust and compact, something very few guns achieve to this degree. While it is large enough to be worn outside the waistband in a more traditional holster, it is small enough to conceal. It would be ideal for a shoulder rig. It may be just a touch too large for an ankle rig. But the gun is perfect for tucking in the waistband just in front of your back pocket.

And if you can manage to hide the gun’s bulk, the 10 rounds of .45ACP will certainly make the Glock 30S very attractive. It is hard hitting and concealable.

And you don’t have to wait for the holster makers to catch up. The 30S is really close to the size of other Glocks, including the 19. There are a lot of Glock 19s in use, so there are plenty of holster options. We’ve tried several 19 holsters, and they all fit functionally well. The fit is damn near perfect.

My favorite is the Bianchi Model 135 Allusion Suppression. This one holster will fit a wide variety of Glocks. 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 31, 32, and the 30S.

This is a big flat holster. I’ll admit that the shear size of what is meant to be a highly concealable IWB holster didn’t inspire much confidence. But rest assured. Its disappears.

The Allusion Suppression (a mouthful of alliteration) is built of pliable leather and breathable nylon. The holster’s back is padded and just flexible enough to really conform to your hip. The use of dual belt clips allows for a slim profile and a more secure anchor on your belt. The loops themselves are narrow, meant for traditional dress belts that rarely are more than an inch and a quarter wide.
