The Glock 30S .45 semi-automatic compact is a perennial favorite firearm choice for members of the concealed carry community. It is lightweight and powerful, backed up with a 10+1 magazine capacity. Although many may consider the 30S to be the ultimate concealed carry firearm, no carry weapon is effective without a proper holster.
DeSantis Gunhide makes holsters that are custom fit for a large variety of concealed carry weapons. The Desantis story is one where the American dream came true.
Gene DeSantis started making holsters at his kitchen table in 1972.
Today, the company uses state-of-the-art computer-aided design (CAD) to provide superior holsters to law enforcement, military, and private citizens from their newest facility on Long Island.
While there are a host of holsters available for the Glock 30S, the Desantis Speed Scabbard combines tradition with modern technology to provide simple, but effective security for your carry weapon. The Speed Scabbard is available in either black or tan unlined leather. The exterior leather is smooth to the touch and the unlined interior helps keep the 30S in place.
As it does with most of its holsters, DeSantis tweaked the Speed Scabbard to the Glock 30S specifications. This included a molding impression for the Glock trigger guard on the outside and indentations on the inside for various Glock 30S frame features.
Another important quality that DeSantis holsters are known for is strength of material and ease of use. Author Mark Kakkuri describes the fit and function of the Speed Scabbard in his article “DeSantis Speed Scabbard” at USConcealedCarry.com:
“Thankfully, because the Speed Scabbard is a belt slide with strong belt loops sewn in, it goes on and stays in place. Because it is an outside the waistband holster, it’s not a gut buster.” (Read more at USConcealedCarry.com)
Although the Speed Scabbard has a simple design, it has several features that allow a degree of user customization. An adjustable tension screw lets the shooter determine the amount of force used to hold the gun in place. The Speed Scabbard also has a two-position carry option; either a straight drop or slightly forward cant.
The DeSantis Speed Scabbard, whether for the Glock 30S or other weapon, is a safe, secure, and easily accessible holster. The traditional design means it is ready when you are; its modern leading-edge fitting and molding technology means security and comfort. The Speed Scabbard can be found online for about $50.
