Good article on that in the latest American Handgunner, I think, or something thats on the news stands now.

Plus I thought this was interesting too.

If I have time later today I will post a picture of my 30S with a 21 mag in it and there is a fair amount of mag hanging out.

Good read. Also, go hold a G30SF, if you can't find a G30S, and compare it to a G21. Big difference. Especially when concealed carry is the intent of the weapon.

$7 mags? That had to have been back in the days when gas was still less than a dollar a gallon. Wow I miss those days. Inflation sucks.

I love my 30S. Trijicon sights and Pearce base plates make it even better.

I wish I would've held out for the Trijicons, but I wanted them right then and they had the tools to do it, whereas I don't. So, I settled for the TG's.

I can relate to this! 1992 was my first Glock, also a G23. After years of shooting the 1911 platform I could not hit anything bigger than the top off of a 55 gal drum. Sold it and purchased another 1911. Finally in 2003 I purchased another Glock, a G26 and have never looked back.. Everyone of them (Gen 2&3) have been absolute perfection for me! Dunno know about the Gen4 as I doubt I will look to purchase one in the near future. I am satisfied with what I have now. (And I currently own a OD gen3 23 that I can shoot very well. It is all about learning the proper grip on the Glock system) jb

Yes $7 mags believe it or not...the store I was dealing with knew us well and was essentially giving us the mags for LEO prices..the regular price was about $9 per mag. I recall buying ten 23 mags and eight 21 mags for $150 with tax....

That was the good ole days

I would avoid brake cleaner all together on a 30S! I used some 3M brake cleaner on a rag to clean around the front sight notch when installing my warren tactical's and wiped the finish off my day old 30S!

Congrats on the 30S. I'm afraid football season would just have to wait. I'm going to the range. I shoot just fine with the factory sights myself, but I really appreciate what night sights can do. You have to do what works best for you, but isn't that really the point anyway. Let us know how you like it.

Got it to the range today and am liking it alot. It's a tad snappier than my G30, but still very controllable. Shoots and runs just as you would expect.
