Default glock 30?

Im seriously looking at paying 569.99 for a brand new glock 30 for my new edc weapon. I have never owned a glock and just wanted to hear from some of you who have experience carrying a glock 30. Im 6'6" and 300 lbs.

I do love mine. In my opinion it is one of the most
versatile guns arround. It is conceilable, reliable, acurate, capacity is amazing for it's size (10+1 with the regular mag), it also accepts the
G21 magazine for higher capacity and recoil is not bad at all. It is one of those weapons that can fulfill different roles: C.C/self defense, home defense and range gun. I have to say that i also own a 1911, a G21 and the M&P 45c and if
for any reason i'm in a situation in which i can only keep one of them, the G30 would be the winner for all of the reasons stated above.

That's some stout competition there. Does the price tag sound about right to you? Am i over paying?

Well, price wise i'd say borderline high but of course in you region may be a bargain---
I would guess you have LARGE hands--Have you handled the lil darlin?
I'm just 6'2" & not quite 200lbs & one of the reasons i never loved it was size compared to my paws-

Just bought my first 30SF a couple weeks back and freakin LOVE IT. Slightly wider in the frame and slide but big deal....get a decent holster and forget about it.

What a gun!

My lgs is weird about people handling his guns. I got to hold it but he wouldn't let me manipulate the slide release etc... felt good in my hand a lot big but im used to a compact 380. It wasn't at all uncomfortable, just bigger than im used to
