Recommended? YesAfter 1000 rounds of various ammo over a year, I've has zero failures.
Pros: Compact size, reliability, availability of accessories
Recommended? YesI've had my G30 for over 10 years, and it's proven to be 100% reliable. It's small enough for every day carry, and powerful enough to accomplish anything. It's a rare, entire package, for a fair and reasonable price tag.
Pros: Compact, Reliable
Recommended? YesMy particular G30 isa Gen3 O.D. I find this model to be most utilitarian . It is not exactly a pocket pistol, nor is it a full size service pistol. It functions without fail. I have shot against 1911's in which thousands had been spent.Those 1911 guys who showed up with 2k plus pistols were disapointed .I can carry anything I want. I choose Glock because I am confident that it will function as needed if or when required.

Pros: Small, light for .45, reliable, inexpensive
Cons: inaccurate (for me)
Recommended? YesThe Glock 30 was my first handgun, as such I put about 2,000 rds through it before I sold it. Great gun, never mis-fired. Lightweight, easily concealed. Only gripe I had was I couldn't do better than a 8" group at 25. Maybe just me (everyone else seems to shoot this weapon fine). I have since bought and fired other glocks in .40 and 9mm with extreme accuracy. I have shot other compact 45's before with no issue with accuracy so that's my .02. Overall, fantastic value...

Pros: Caliber .45, so 'nuff said about that. Traditional Glock reliability. Mag capacity.
Cons: The grip is a bit chunky for some folks. The new G30SF (short frame) might be a better choice.
Recommended? YesThe G30 is another excellent Glock product. Supremely accurate out of the box, easy to maintain (six drops of oil), but that's nothing new to Glock owners. I personally found the grip a bit chunky for my tastes and much prefer the G30SF, which is the short frame model of the same gun. Short frame is a misnomer in that it's not that much shorter, but my hands can certainly tell the difference. The Pearce PG-30 mag extender adds an extra round (for a total capacity of 11) and the Sherer plug rounds out the Glock grip nicely. Eleven rounds of 230-grain ammo spewing out of a handgun this small is certainly impressive when considering a home defense or carry weapon.
