    I rented a 30 from the range.

    Overall, I give it a :hsugh:

    It was ok. Nothing to get excited over.

    Is the Glock 30 the compact .45?

    If so, then a friend has one. I bought his G26 and then he bought a G30. He didn't seem to like it either. Thought it had too much recoil. I didn't think it kicked that bad though.

    I dunno what I expected, but the Glock didn’t do it for me. Yeah, it's a good gun. But it's not a "nice" gun. There didn't seem to be anything that made it feel special.

    I went back to shooting my USP right after and it just has something about it that makes it feel "nice"...


    ...to me.

    I just think the marketing hype on them is a bit much. It's a good gun, but it is not perfection.

    If I was ever told I could only have one pistol, it would not be a glock.

    everything always feels nice when you overpay by about $300

    You showed me the light...hallelujah :rolleyes:

    They're fine guns, but not the best. Doesn't matter how much you whore out the pictures of yours.

    That being said, I'll stop arguing, simply because you're a fanboy and nothing will ever change your mind.

    In a world of compromise, some men don't.

    The Glock 30 is a good gun. It's accurate and has very little recoil for a small frame .45 and can hold more ammo than a full size 1911.

    My USP was $620 brand new when I got it in 1999. Seemed like a good deal to me.

    2 reasons why I don't like Glocks. 1 it is awkward to hold and 2 it seems that there is something in the polymer that turns it's owners into jerks. :)

    I absolutely love my Glock 30, it's super accurate, and lightweight for it's size, plus it's a .45, and the recoil is very soft.
