    Anybody have any info/experiences ins/outs of the G30 45auto? Will have the G19 in 9mm soon for conceal carry. Just wondered peoples thoughts on the bigger caliber.

    im close to pulling the trigger on the 30s
    its a 30 with a 36 slide.
    supposedly close to the g19 in size.
    can take mags from the kriss vector (25 rd)
    have seen nothing but great things on the 30 in general

    Had a G30SF, loved it! Will get another someday, but my G21 Gen 4 handles my 45 duty for now

    mine too. It has been my primary CCW for 2 years now it's also a darn pleasure to shoot at the range. It eats anything I feed it and it's accurate.
    I have used a Bianchi size 11 leather IWB and it is very comfortable

    I put on one of those slide on rubberized grip sleeves and installed an extended slide release and these are the only two things I feel improved the gun for my use

    I've had my 30 since 1999 and it's been a great gun. Goes bang every time I pull the trigger and is more accurate than a lot of full size 45's. If it feels good in your hand I say get it.

    I love the Glock30. It's mid-compact size, it's versatility in capacity 10,13&30rd factory mags (my Kriss Super V uses them also *bonus) not to mention the undeniable stopping power the .45acp round makes it an awesome choice for an everyday carry option.

    I have had mine for about 10 + years. Its been awesome. I just wish it wasnt so wide, but its still acceptable. I wont ever get rid of it.

    The new G30S actually ends up being pretty much the same size as a G19, and it will actually even fit some G19 holsters (not really form fitted holsters, but hybrid style holsters).

    As far as the caliber, for the most part, pistol caliber doesn't make any significant difference. Between 9mm, 40sw, and 45acp, there isn't a massive difference unless we start talking about things like barrier penetration. Here's a good thread on the matter: http://www.texasguntalk.com/forums/video-how-tos-tutorials/32458-wound-ballistics-overview.html

    I carry the G30 every day. I love it. I carry OWB and IWB and it is very comfortable. Accurate and dependable. I guess it would have to be because I trust my life with it. I carry two spare mags in a leather pouch holder on my left side. I know some find the width to be a little much, but it doesnt bother me at all. Dont get me wrong, love my G19 too, it was my first handgun, but the 30 is my carry gun.
