So I walk into my lgs yesterday to see if by some miracle he had small rifle primers. Of course he was sold out along with 60% of his normal gun stock. Anyways I walk over to the 1911 section and poke around for a bit then I move down to the normally empty Glock section and see that he has one on the top shelf. At a distance it looks like a gen 3 23 so I wasn't terribly excited being I already have one. Upon further evaluation I notice "30s" on the slide. No flipping way. I asked to see it and it was over. I had to trade my edc gen 2.5 30 in on it but I'm okay with it! This thing is thin!!! Taking it to the range tomorrow. Will post updates. Here's a of it next to my 23. The 23 is on the left.

Nice!! At first I thought it said a Glock 305....I was thinking WTF?!?

My 30SF is my dedicated EDC and I truly love it. Having a custom IWB built for it now

I don't feel like doing a search. Whats the diff in the 30 and the 30S?

That is a lot of gun in a small package. Hope the Obama admin did not have you paying double for it under his program of selling 1.5 guns a second. Yep, in the past two months, 1.5 guns a second have been selling.

Well. It was a healthy price unfortunately. 590. I do admit to somewhat being violated but since I traded one in on it eased the pain a bit.

The new 30S is nice but I'll stick with my 30SF, the little bit of weight savings does nothing for me, id just wish they would have used the G4 frame for it...

I've heard that a lot so far. I haven't owned a gen 4 yet. Just 4 gen 3's. they fit me so it doesn't bother me. If I would of had the 30sf instead of the 30 I prolly would of passed on this 30S.

Got it to the range this afternoon. Ran like every other Glock. 100 rounds of hard ball and 25 hollow points. Ran like a champ. No hiccups

That's not that bad. My G30 was $539 back in 2003. Most of the ones I see these days at normal prices are around $550 or so. You may have paid a little excise tax for the times, but not like the ones paying $750 have. Enjoy!
