Default Which to Carry??

Quick poll, advice and considerations accepted. I am in the fortunate position to where I now own 7 models of Glock. I am wondering which gun to edc for cool weather though. I shoot all equal, and ammo isn't an issue. So which would you recommend over the other. Glock 19,23,30? I have Milt Sparks VMII and MTAC's for them, nightsights and all variations of magazine capacities. I live in Vegas and travel through bad areas frequently to do volunteer work for my church so initially capacity was considered (high likelihood of a gang or multiple attackers). But the idea of a 45 is comforting... and then theres the middle of the road.. Advice appreciated

The .45acp round cannot be beat. Since they are all 3 very similar guns, which feels better for you? The G30 is the subcompact and the G19 is the compact, so they aren't really apples to apples. Still, G30 is my thought.

I carry 1911's, though. Steel makes me feel much better than a Glock.

.45acp, .40 S&W, 9mm, .38 Spl, .380 acp, 22lr
12 gauge, .223/5.56x45mm, 30-30 Winchester

Out of your choices the G-30 would be my pick.

Don't own a Glock but the 45 ACP is my choice as well, except mine is a Colt Defender.

The only 357 magnum to me is the Ruger Security Six!!

I would go with the G19. I like capacity. The bad guy isn't going to know the difference between a 9mm, a .40, or a .45 hitting him in the chest. Being able to carry 15+1 would be my choice all day long.

G30, for purely personal reasons. I shoot it better than most guns I have ever tried.

I like the caliber of the G30, but I'm not a big fan of subcompacts. I carry a G19 most of the time.
