I'm thinking about getting a Glock 30, but I hate those magazine baseplates on them. Do the blue label Glock 30's come with three of those hideous things? I would much rather have three of the flush mags.

Just got a 30sf a little while ago, so I am still getting to know it. I have a feeling it is going to be my new favorite.

Me too. Got mine 3 days ago and really like it. It will eventually replace my g19 and g26 as my main carry. My xs big dots for it should be here later today :-)

The Glock 30 is a magical pistol and I shoot mine better than any other handgun I own. I added the Crimson Trace laser to mine, not so much because I like the laser but because I like the palm swell. Every shooter should own a Glock 30.

The G30 is my preferred carry gun, but it is my #2 shooter behind the G21 Gen4.

My G30

I like my G30 but it is a chunk to carry. I carry my G36 more with the one round mag extension. I finished undercutting the trigger guard this am to hold it better. That and an extra mag should be enough.

Best little .45 you could ask for. Since I lost some weight, I can carry IWB or OWB in my Fobus Roto. A small frame .45 that goes bag every time. You don't always get that with a chopped 1911 for often triple the price of a 30. I went with a 3.5# trigger and hope sometime toget the grip reduced as I have wrather small hands.

The gun is reliable as a brick and more acurate than you can shoot it.

Yes, the Blue Label (how I got mine) comes with three of the "extended below the frame" magazines. I believe Glock thinks they will be used more, or maybe they just want the extra money for you to buy the flush fitting magazine, not sure.

If they send them with flush, everyone wants extended. If they send them with extended, everyone wants flush. If they send them with both, everyone is pissed they didn't get two of the one they wanted.

The grass is always greener.

You are correct sir, that is why they should send them with three of each!

Yup, I like this one a lot, especially at the range. I usually carry CCW with a 9-round magazine+13-round G21 mag:

General Glocking

Here is my range configuration for G30, using the 10-round magazine:

General Glocking

I'm using Speer Gold Dot LE short barrel ammo in it for carrying, and it eats whatever ammo I feed it at the range. I'm seriously considering an aftermarket barrel so that I can shoot some lead through it, too.

The G30 is and has been my most carried firearm. I carry it OWB covered by whatever the season requires, untucked short sleeve shirt,sweat shirt or jacket.

Amazingly accurate and easy to shoot.

Would anyone be willing to show a picture the holster that you carry the G30 in and the manufacturer and model of it?

The G30 is my chosen carry gun. Can't go wrong with the .45 ACP.
