    I am looking for a lightweight 45 to carry. I know before you used a glock30 in one of the glock magazines or possibly a small 1911. I wasn't sure about the glock36 with some of the malfunctions it had. Right know I have a sig P220 carry just something smaller than that.

    Brian, that Glock you have your eye on won't disappoint. Check the 30SF and the regular size G30 before you buy. You really can "get more hand" around the SF frame, and it gives most folks better trigger reach. These guns are extremely reliable, and somewhere around 300 rounds when the parts settle in perfectly, you'll see a remarkable tightening of groups. You've made an excellent choice.
