    Hey guys, I recently bought a Glock 30sf and ran some lead down range and wow. This gun delivers accuracy I honestly did not expect from such a small gun. The recoil is very manageable, and the accuracy rivals pistols double and triple the cost. I have large hands and thought I would automatically like the regular 30 better, but the sf fit my big hands better for some reason. The only other gun I can imagine to be as nice would be an HK45compact, but even that has only 8 rounds in the mag and costs more than double. Nothing but great things to say so far!!

    Congrats! The sf generally fits everybody better. The original large frames are just a bit too big for even big hands. I've yet to shoot a Glock that wasn't accurate. They are hard to beat.

    Congrats. Any FTRTB malfunctions? That used to be an issue with the G30SF. Has it been resolved? I might wanna add one to the arsenal.

    I've shot my G30SF quite a bit and have never had it FTRTB. Actually, I don't think it's ever had a single malfuntion. I'd say the problem is fixed!

    Well I only ran like 60 rounds through her so far, so I will update after the next range visit where i'll try to put 200-300 through. As of now tho its been perfect and almost as accurate as my 1911 I had.

    I've had my g30sf for two weeks now and have run just under 200 rounds through it
    It just keep getting better, more accurate,easy to shoot and goes bang every time I press the loud button

    Even my buddy who is a die hard g22 owner was impressed

    Love my G30 "vintage" 1997.
     
  13. Funny thing about Glocks. Even the small ones 26, 27, 30, 36 (well, sort of smallish) shoot nearly as well as a full size. You can actually shoot at targets at 25 yards, rust is not much of a problem, reliable etc. 25 yard target shooting with most smaller guns does not work out nearly as well.
