Am thinking about purchasing a Glock 30. I have a 26 and 33. What do you think about the 30?

Fun as hell to shoot, as accurate as you can get, easy to conceal...no reason to pass this one up at all.

Here is a customer of mine's G30SF and I was putting holes inside of holes with it at 10 yards. I love the 30 and the 21.

I like my G30sf a lot!
It is just a smidgen bigger then the G26 and G33, but instead of ten 9mm or nine .357, you get ten .45ACP-- seems fair to me. :)

The G30 is my all time favorite Glock. I own one and it is my primary carry weapon of choice. Great shooting you can't go wrong with it.

I've owned 5 other Glock pistols(G19, 20 and 29 at the same time, G22 and a G26) before I picked up the G30 on Wednesday and I'm 100% sure the only reason I got rid of the others was because of caliber. I'm just a 45acp kind of guy, I really like this little gun. It's compact, VERY accurate, recoil isn't bad at all out of a 45acp that's this small and it's "Glock Simple" so it's easy to work on and get all manner of parts for. 10+1 rounds of 45acp works fine for Home Defense too. Once I get the LWD barrel installed so I can shoot my cast lead bullet handloads without worry it'll be Perfect.
Personally, I'd get the G30, you just can't go wrong.

The G30 is my daily carry gun.
It has worked perfectly from Day 1, right out of the box.

Over 5000 rounds through it now and still shooting perfectly.

It is stone stock.

What holster do you use for your G30?
Fobus GL4.

I also have a Fobus for the H&K .40 and the Walther PPK.

I do NOT carry IWB as I find it uncomfortable and slower to draw.

Yes, I've timed it/videoed it and pretty much beat it to death and drawing from true concealment from IWB is much slower than from OWB and cover. (At least for me!)

I do have a new Galco OWB for the G30 on backorder that I'll be testing soon.

AD (and that's why I use the Fobus and not my Crossbreed)

This may be a dumb question but what is the difference between a 30 and a 30sf?
"SF" stands for "short frame" which means the grip is smaller/shorter. The SF models were pre-Gen 4 which now have interchangeable back straps to customize grip size.

By "shorter" Glock means the measurement from the front strap to the back strap. The thickness of the grip (as you are looking at it while shooting) is the same between SF and non-SF models.

SF models were offered in the larger/longer caliber Glocks: 20, 21 and 30, for sure. I don't know about 31?
