I'd say glock 30, at 10 rounds of .45 in A concealable gun,it's the only glock that has a step up on what other gun makers have trouble doing in a CC .45,which is squeeze in those extra rounds.

Or a glock 20 if your into 10mm,glock is the best platform for that caliber as well in my opinion.

Any other caliber though glock is on even ground with their competitors,and you are likely to find a different gun you like better in 9,40,357,etc...

But if you just want a glock to say you have a glock,or if glocks truly are the gun that grabs you back when you pick it up,get one in the biggest caliber and size that you can effectively shoot and carry.

Thanks guys! I was looking at the glock 30s but I need to physically check it out. Looks pretty small.

They are pretty small, but they are bulky. I have a G27 and it is unwieldy for me to shoot. I have not shot the G30 but I can't imagine it is much better.

Ya wanna buy my G27?

I was looking at a .40 Glock and ended up purchasing a Ruger SR40 instead.

Why not check into the xds ?? Either in 45 or 9. I have the 45 and it is a pleasure to shoot and carry. Very accurate as well.
