Ok I know that this is totally an opinion thing but I have a question. I have made up my mind that my next gun purchase will be a Glock in .45 caliber. Now I already have a 19 and a 23 and I think I want a 30 but should I go with the 30 or 30SF? I don't have a place that has either of these models in stock so it would be a special order that I am pretty much locked into and I don't know which to order. I have handled the Gen4 21 and I almost bought that model since I already have the other two to use for concealed carry but I just know that once I start shooting the .45 caliber I will probably want to carry it too so the 30 might be better.

Any and all opinions appreciated. Thanks.

They are the same gun, different size grip. SF stands for small frame. The gen 4 Glocks without back straps are same size as gen 3 SF's, so the question is, which fits your hand better?

I have a Glock 36 and use it for concealed carry. Single stack with only six rounds but even as a novice shooter it's easy to put em on law enforcement targets at the range. Surprised that it didn't jump around more for a .45. Very happy with it. May get the .357 barrel for it in the future to try it out. Have fun looking.

I'm no expert with any automatic. I am a former deputy sheriff, and always carried a .357 S&W revolver. I got my Glock 30 a month ago. At first the grip seemed large, but I am more then used to it by now. My hands are not large, and my leather work gloves are a medium. I find that properly gripping it, the pad of my trigger finger fits dead center on the trigger, and allows me to roll the trigger quite nicely, even combat shooting. Sure seems like a bastard child though, when you look for holsters, and accessories.

I have a glock 21 which I absolutely love but it's way too big to conceal. I'm planning on applying for a permit fairly soon and was considering a g27 because it's a slimmer frame than the g30 but the guy who said to get the g36 and add a mag extension basically changed my mind almost instantly. I prefer .45 and with the slimmer g36 having more capacity that will be perfect. Thanks for that tip.

I wear the 36 with either a Parker IWB holster when carrying, a Fobus at the range or MIC when I use my Maxpedition. The gun is a dream. You just have to find a comfortable way to carry it.
