I am still debating between the G23 or G30sf as a CCW. Here in CA we are limited to 10 round capacity. The way I think of it is if I were limited to 10, I might as well go with the bigger load. I have owned and shot my G21sf which I felt more comfortable with than my buddies G22. I feel that the recoil on the .40 was more violent compared to my .45acp. I wanted to see if a shorter barrel on the 30sf would have a huge impact compared to my G21sf as far as recoil goes? Do you have a tough time concealing the 30sf considering its slightly thicker frame/slide? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
