    I have been doing some homework on the glock 30 for myself. Let me start out by saying, I am not a glock fanboy. I never thought I would ever be interested in owning a glock.

    The glock 30 seems to be the honey badger of concealed handguns. It looks like it is the spawn of a turd and some plastic gone wrong. The honey badger don't care, it don't give a sh!t what it looks like. With 10 45 acp in a concealable handgun I don't care either. Is my new infatuation misplaced ?

    I know some may think I should ask the guys in the glock forum but I stumbled in there once was lucky to get out. They are more like followers of Gaston Glock than glock enthusist. :p Howdy boys

    A lot of people carry Glock and do it sucessfully.

    .45 ACP is THE PD round of choice for many.

    10 rounds seems good.

    You seem to be ok with it.

    A good holster, and proper handling could prevent Glock leg.

    Others might choose a compact 1911 or the new XDs.
    I would, The double stack glocks DO NOT fit my hand well.

    Tryed a 30 for awhile & while it was a GREAT CCW i just never learned to love it-------- But walk into my freindly LGS & ask to see what the co-owner has on his person & guess what you'll see ;)

    Yeah, sounds bad huh.

    It is a variation of boogerhookbangswitch, where finger, shirt or other stuff get's involved with the otherwise simple reholstering process.

    BANG!

    It can be prevented with some thought, practice and appropriate muscle memory. Can be best prevented by using something with a manual and grip safety. (1911 or XDs)

    I have not tried any of the Gen 4 Glocks but the past double stacks dont fit my hand either. I have a G36 single stack 45ACP that is thinner and fits my hand. It weighs 27 oz loaded with 7 230 grain rounds.

    Sometimes they have to learn for themselves, (the asking part that is).

    Yeah, got my Lil bros g30, don't like. Double stacks are not for me at all. It shoots great and all, but WAY too broad for a carry piece for me. I don't even take it out shooting anymore, rather not clean it later, not worth it.

    I like the Glock 30SF a lot. It is the best compromise for a .45ACP in size and capacity. Of course there are other guns that fit that need, but everyone needs to identify what works for them.
