Default Another Glock 30 or a new Glock 29/20?

Howdy 'Fellers.

I am the proud owner of a underused Glock 30 .45 ACP.

I am toying with the idea of getting a CCW.

I am also wavering whether to get another Glock 30 or get a Glock 29 or 20 10MM.

I would like to have the 29 or 20 as a back gun for Hog hunting as well as Concealed carry if I go there.

I understand the Full Power 10MM loads like the 175 grain Winchester Silvertip, 155 grain Double Tap HP, & 200 grain HP loads are supposed to be the match or better of the 180-200 grain HPs for .45ACP.

If I purchase a Glock 29 10MM am I sacrificing the extra 5 bullets by not buying the 20 or other advantages of the larger Glock 21 .45 ACP?

you have a great ccw gun in the g30 so think about next two sizes up, full size will accept 6 inch barrell and from someone who has experienced hogs up close 10mm with bigger barrel is comforting.

I have all 3 and like them all. I would buy the G29 in your case, as I assume you have holsters for your G30 already and they would work just fine for the G29. But everyone needs a G20 in their collection.

I have a G30. I love it. And I carry it every day. But I can't imagine why I would want to by another one in addition to the one I already have. Get something else.
