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.

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.

G30

I have two.

G30 regular; don't know about generations, bought it when they first came out.

Also have the G30SF.

The earlier G30 is infinitely more accurate.

Love them both.

Oops!

Sorry about that.

Have a G19, G23 and the two G30's (My Favs). Please forgive the double post.

BTW, the G19&23 are older generations. The 30's are as per the previous posts.

My 30sf lives on the nightstand during the night. When carried the 30 wears the 36 slide. Makes for a very comfortable carry. It also fits all of my holsters for my other Glock 9's and 40's.

I am waiting for the Gen4 G30 to come out I want to get it to match my G4 G21. Those little glocks are so amazing. Almost like them best of all. Glocks that is. I put a Pearse +1 mag extension on my mags and I'm good to go.
