    Greetings from North Carolina. Just purchased my first Glock last week - a Glock 30sf. I managed to get to the range and put around a 100 rounds through the pistol. Now I'm wondering why I waited so long to buy a Glock.

    Under a regime.
    Nice choice. Sell that 45 upper and buy a 10mm upper and you will be in business.

    Welcome to GT!

    The G30sf is a pistol I hope to own one day. Great choice, can't go wrong with the all-american .45 acp.

    Check out some of the conversions you can do with your G30. One thing I love about Glocks is their versatility. Not saying you need to switch from the .45, I just find it is good to have options.

    I hope to buy the same this weekend. I'm visiting Portland and my son and I plan on attending the gumshoe on Sunday.

    Fingers crossed. I also have my eye on the comparable M&P. So we will see.

    I think a lot of us did, I know I did. Congrats on the 30! Kind of makes you wonder why anyone would buy any other 45ACP, don't it? 10 rounds, in a light weight, super accurate, firearm, that can take 13 round magazines. Rhetorical question, I know, there are prettier, and more nostalgic firearms, that some prefer, Brian, cough, cough.:wavey:

    Everyone says this about the Glock .45s. I have never been a big fan of the .45 (I do respect it), but I very rarely see anything negative spoken about Glock .45s.

    My father-in-law is a big .45 fan. If y'all keep this up, he may get his wish and see me packin' a .45:supergrin:

    I tried to post this question separately w/o success. Since you have "a bunch" of Glocks perhaps you can advise. I have 3 1911's which I don't carry 'cuz of size/weight. Since I got my G26 I don't carry my G19. I'm now thinking about the G30SF, always had a fondness for the .45.

    You opinion would be welcome. Thanks in advance. Best.

    The 30sf is an AWESOME gun. Very reliable, accurate, and absolutely outstanding for home defense/CCW.

    While you think the stock version is perfection, click on the G30sf in my sig if you ever need some ideas!

    Congrats on a great gun!

    I had seen the pictures in another post. Very nice looking Glock. Looks like they did a great customizing job.
