Well, if something goes wrong inside the slide , what would you prefer you have had , thinner or thicker slide ?
Believe it or not , things like that happens all the time to weapons .
I was just reading and looking at pics of a CZ-52 with an exploded round ... incredible . The CZ-52 is built like a tank , it is an all steel weapon with a heavy steel slide and the guy walked out without scratch .
To me , personally , if I am given the choice of thinner or thicker slide , I choose thicker . I am not suggesting that the 30S is unsafe . Just my personal opinion
Check this out :
and this one ... and it can happen to anyone on any caliber
