    A friend of mine just picked up a G30 (SF). I have a standard G30 Sub compact. I was amazed at how much difference there was between the two. I didn't care for the (SF) feel or the way it shot. My G30 seems to have more substance when gripping which transfers to trigger pull. Two thumbs up to the G30 and not so much to the (SF). Got to be a .45 if you want to stay alive...

    Sarcasm People!!

    Man, a .45 is nothing! I wouldnt trust a .45 its such a puny round! You need something like a Desert Eagle .50 to stay alive, those smaller MM's wouldnt do damage to anything man! Heck you can just brush off a 9mm.

    Are you serious?

    May I redirect you to WW-2 history? The Thompson and the 1911 did what to how many Germans??? And with a hard ball round at that---:rolleyes:

    According to the FBI, the .45ACP is the 100% base line for stopping power and also according to them, about 70% of Police forces are so armed; here in GA the % is higher.

    I am afraid you don't know what the hell you are talking about friend.

    Anyone that thinks they need a .50 DE to successfully stop a threat has been playing too many video games.

    I would put a 9mm, with a 147gr hollowpoint, and a trained shooter against a moron with a .50DE all day long and collect LARGE bank....

    Anyone realize that User Name (worst name ever) was being sarcastic? If not then possibly the worst advice ever, but I think that was tongue-in-cheek. Ease up a bit and maybe we will find out...:eek:

    Thank you! Yes I was being sarcastic. I am just tired of people sitting around saying that anything less than a .45 will not take somebody down. I personally carry 147 grain 9mm hollowpoints (golden saber). I would trust my 9mm with my life anyday. Also the 9mm has killed more people than any other round. Just sayin :D

    I am not doubting that a .45 is an incredible round. I love the .45, but a .22 or anything larger can take somebody down with a well placed shot. Heck even BB and Pelet guns can kill somebody.

    I will have to disagree. .17 HMR can do the same. :D

    Very true very true, as in my next sentence, even a BB/pelet gun can take somebody down. Thank you for being the only one to see that it was sarcasm. I thought that would have been obvious!

    Also, thanks to Dillinger for calling me an idiot, I thought the sarcasm was pretty obvious.

    This is the handgun I'm really considering for my 21st birthday next month. I'm leaning towards the short frame, only because it'll be easier to carry in the future when I decide to. But other than the original being able to take the 21's magazines, I don't know of much difference.

    Interesting. Never seen the FBI quote before.

    The Germans and Japanese, although on the receiving end of the .45 ACP, have never seen fit to adopt it. I wonder why?

    The rest of the world's police and military forces have largely been satisfied with the performance of the 9mm. It's easier to train new recruits with, the guns generally are more reliable and hold more rounds, and the 9mm is effective if the bullet is placed right, and this is the most important aspect in any self defense shooting.

    I'd say that around the world, more terrorists and criminals are shot dead by security forces armed with 9mm weapons than those of .45 ACP. Some of these countries, such as Israel, deal with the threat of terrorism every day.

    I think if there was any real consensus on the issue of service caliber handgun bullet effectiveness, they would use it.

    But, back to the g30...
    I have the sub compacy model and love it!
    It's relatively easy to conceal, and I was surprised how easy it is for me to handle, as I have large hands.
    Haven't tried the sf model yet though.

    I read JD's comment and no where did he call you a Idiot. Sarcasm sometims when it is subtle can be misunderstood. I myself always put a disclaimer at the end of the post when I am sarcastic, but I'm never sarcastic I'm always right. I subscribe to the golden rule...... give me gold and follow my rules :D.
