    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

    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.
