    So my wife wants me to sell the Glock 30 as she doesn't like the fact it has no external safety. She comes from a long line of people who like 1911's. So no problem for me I love 1911's and it means I can have more guns in the house as long as they have external safety. My question is I want to get another 1911 in commander size. I have narrowed it down to either a Kimber or STI. Which would you go with and why? The Kimber will be the Pro carry II not sure if HD or not. The STI will be the Spartan IV. Do you think selling the glock 30 at $550 shipped is a reasonable offer with the test fire date of 4/21/12?

    a used Glock at more than $500 is hard to sell regardless of test fire date. I would go with the Spartan. good luck

    Is your wife afraid some one will pick it up and shoot it? Your in control of your gun, if she feels safer don't keep one chamberd. Even an 1911 with the safety on, you keep your finger off the trigger. Thats why my wife likes her S&W Ladysmith revolver, pick it up point and shoot.

    No she doesn't tell me what to own, it was a suggestion and I don't mind I like the 1911's better so it wasn't a tough decision. The Glock has never been fired so its "new".

    +1, Keep the g30 if you like it. Educate your wife on gun safety ( if theres going to be a firearm accident it's not going to be just because there was no safety) And save up for an 1911.

    I think she really just wants me to get a 1911 instead of the glock :) I have a 1911 coming to me this weekend but I think she just hates the look of Glocks :)

    You seem to have a couple of problems going on here, but, this is real close to the top of the list. I was a 1911 fan way earlier than a Glock fan, but after shooting a Glock, for the most part, the 1911's are relegated to range use. All other aspects in life where a firearm is needed, it's a Glock. You won't get $550 for your G30, used going price is $500, in mint condition.

    So I take it since it's never been shot its still considered "used"? Well that sucks if so.

    Even when you buy it new, it's used! It was fired, before leaving the manufacture. When someone owns it, besides the FFL, it used. Just the way it is. At least you didn't have hundreds of dollars tied up in extras. Magazines, night sights, guide rods, holster, etc, those moneys are seldom recovered!

    Now that you know it's used, no matter what you say, it's used! Go shoot the damn thing, so at least you'll know you are making the right decision. I'm betting you like the way the 30 shoots. Most do! Not to mention has greater capacity, and, even with more rounds, is lighter, than a 1911.

    You get a 1911, the wife is happy. Sounds like a win-win situation.

    Just keep the G30 if you don't want to "lose" any money on it. And yes, if it's unfired it's still used. Think of it like this, if you bought a new car and had it hauled to your house and never drove it or even started it, do you think you could sell it as a new car? Same thing with the G30. You're wanting $550 for it. If you get $500 for it, that's not a big loss.

    Yeah I hear ya guys :) yes its a win-win with the wife cause my other gun is going to be a 1911. As far as $550 its not a solid price I can go lower to the $525 - $500 range easy enough.

    That's a solid gun. They're built by Armscor in the Philippines.

    It's been 'bought' and is no longer considered new on the market.
