    I am looking to expand my glock collection. I am looking to either get a glock 27 or glock 30. My question is what do I get? I am looking for a gun that is accurate, has the least amount of recoil and is the most dependable (I know all glocks are). I will be using the weapon for camping and backpacking to fend off animals and people out in no man's land!! Any feedback is appreciated!!!!;R-------- ;I

    I have both a G27 and a G30. I LOVE my G30. Dont get me wrong the G27 is a fine gun and it is much more comfortable to conceal, but it does have a snappy recoil in comparison to the G30 (even with 200gr +p ammo).

    If the weapon is strictly for hiking and animal defense you might consider the G20 or G29. I'm not sure how big these animals are that you could encounter but the 10mm seems to be a good choice for that purpose.

    I'm a fan of the G30 personaly, sweet shooter!

    Believe it or not the G30 is easier to shoot than the G27. It has a nice rolling recoil versus the G27 hard-jerking recoil. I own both, go with the G30. If your worried about concealment the G36 .45cal is good too. ;)

    Oh by the way, the bullets in the G30 are bigger and in this case, bigger is better.;f ;f ;f ;f ;f ;f ;f

    It's a matter of [G30] personal preference. I [G30] own both G30 and G27 [G30]. While [G30] I prefer to [G30] use and carry my G30, I [G30] have also [G30] considered switching [G30] to the G27 for everyday [G30] concealed carry [G30]. But what I [G30] realized was, I can [G30] just as easily conceal [G30] my G30 as I can [G30] my G27.

    So basically, my [G30] vote goes to the G30.

    Good [G30] Luck!! ;f

    Get a G30. And a SureFire light (6Z, 6P, E2E, whatever), a good holster and a spare-mag-and-light carrier. You can't shoot what you can't see, and if it's late, the SureFire will light up EVERYTHING around you. (Blindingly bright).

    Hate to go against the grain, because I really like my G30 in a concealed carry/self defense role but... I'd rather have a G20 (10mm)for animals that may do me harm if I had to stick with a "box stock" Glock. If you're willing to go the extra dough, A G21 with an after market barrel to shoot 45 Super would be the better tool for things that go bump in the woods. Better to use the right tool for the job if you're butt's on the line. Least that's my way of thinking on the subject of a woods carry Glock.

    HTH,

    Are you camping in Kansas? (.22,G27) Or Alaska? (G30,21,44mag,.308)

    I have a G27 and agree with most posters, it's snappy, and a bit tough to keep on target quickly. I've never shot at 30, but love my Springfield mil spec operator 1911 .45. Just check this area and of course the .45 will be your choice. I prefer the large frame by the way.

    well if your looking for low recoil- glock 30 recoils less than my glock 27 does.

    versatility- the 27 is a little smaller, little lighter, little thinner. and you can get .357 sig, and 9mm barrels for them.

    its a tough call, i think i shoot the 30 a little better than my 27, and you cant go wrong with 10 +1 rds of .45 for a camping, hiking gun.


    then again you cant really go wrong with 9+1 or 10+1 with extension rds of .40 either.
