Im wondering if the Glock 30 is really that much bigger than the Glock 27.  Anyone have a picture of both side by side?  One of these will be my new CCW.

Get the 30 unless you really want something more concealable. I've shot the 27 and I thought it was way too small. The 30/19/23 is as small as I would go, I have larger hands though.

The Glock 30 compares in size to the 19/23 and is wider than those.  The single stac 36 uses the same holster as the 19/23, just to give an idea.

The 26/27 are smaller in all ways.

Personally, I would grab the 30 if your hands are avg to large.  The 27 just seems too small in my larger hands. I have one, but the 30 fits me better.  You can use a mag extender in the 27 (11rds) but it ends up being just a wee bit shorter then a 23 w/ 2 less rounds.  I'l post some pics that I took quickly.  Sorry not the best pics, but I hope it helps.

Just for fun here are a couple of the G27 w/ mag extender on top of a G23

the 30 is much wider. but to be honest, at least for me, i never had a problem concealing one. the grip is the hardest part to conceal for me, and that isn't a problem with the 30 in my experience.

Worst part for me with the 30 is the weight.  Pulls my pants down.  I have no arse.
