Holster for P30


July 29, 2008, 09:09 PM
Hey, I am looking to carry my P30 a little and the Holster I purchased appears to have been a mistake. I purchased a Black Hawk and in my opinion(I'm no expert) its not ideal for concealed carry. Probably a good duty Holster or for the range maybe.

Anyhow, can I get some recomendations on a good Holster that would help hide/tuck that firearm on my body ? I'm 5'7" about 175lbs(Ok, 185 in the winter:))

Or, should I consider another firearm if I get a hankering to carry more often ?

I have a P-30 also and it's so new that a lot of holsters haven't caught up yet. I like leather. The Milt Sparks VM-2 seems like a #1 choice although with a long wait.
Can someone let us know if the P-30 is the same size as the USP?
Looks like Bullard makes P-30 holsters and I'd check HBE leatherworks, they seem to do beautiful work.
I can't get excited about kydex but some people swear by them.
While you're waiting, look at Don Hume holsters. I have a few and the quality is good for the money.
Check e-bay too.

I believe Kevin at http://kdholsters.com/ has a mold for the P30.

It's not in his list on-line, but may be worth a call.

Did you see the Anaconda Cochise Defender? OMG is that beautiful?

Comp-Tac does holsters for the P30, their MTAC is supposed to be very nice.

I carry a P30 every day in a Comp-Tac MTAC holster.

A review I wrote about it can be read HERE (http://www.w9zeb.org/?p=85)
In the search for a holster to conceal my H&K P30 I have tried a number of different products. I had a Hold Fast from Peterís Custom Holsters, as well as a Hold Out. The Hold Fast is an all Kydex Inside the waistband holster with Leather tabs that wrap around your belt to hold it in place. The Hold Out is an all Kydex On the belt holster. Both held the pistol firmly in place but were not comfortable for me to wear all day long. So back to the interwebs to search for something else.

I had read a number of positive reviews of the Comp-Tac MTAC while browsing the Defensive Carry forums. I decided Iíd give one a shot. The MTAC is a Hybrid Leather & Kydex Holster. The majority of the holster is leather. The side of the holster that is away from the body, towards the pants/belt is made of Kydex. This works out well because the Kydex doesnít collapse like many all leather IWB holsters do when the pistol is removed, yet you donít have hard plastic jabbing you in the soft fleshy bits like you would with an all Kydex IWB holster. The Kydex section of the MTAC can be replaced with bodies for other pistols. Which allows a single $80 purchase to be extended for use with other handguns down the road at $30 per additional body. Should I want to carry a Glock 19, all I need to do is purchase the G19 body for my current MTAC, remove/replace four screws and Iím back in business.

I ordered my MTAC with a Kydex Body for the P30 and C-Clips. These clips hook over the waistband of your pants behind the belt, and then have small hooks that grab the top and bottom edge of the belt. The Holster has two screws that can be used to adjust the retention on the pistol. I found them to be just about right from the factory and havenít made many changes. You can adjust the possitioning of the hooks on the holster to allow the gun to ride higher or lower on your waist. I left mine in the middle as itís a good level for me to get a firm firing grip, a smooth draw, and decient concealment.

Iíve found the Comp-Tac MTAC holster to be so comfortable that most days I forget Iím carrying a gun. It doesnít jab me in the side or leg while Iím walking, standing, or sitting down. During the one day fighting pistol class put on by the Indiana Gun Owners board the MTAC served itís purpose flawlessly. Drawing from the holster was exactly what you expect, and re holstering didnít require a lot of thought.

All in all Comp-Tac knocked one out of the park in my opinion.

I also have an OWB Leather holster from Boomstick holsters (http://www.boomstickholsters.com) on order which will be somewhat like this one, only all black. http://www.boomstickholsters.com/Images/sss_shark.jpg
