This will not be your last Glock!I just ordered a 30 from discount guns ($519). This is my first Glock.
Thanks for all the input on this.
As a public service because new Glock owners are being born every day. This thread addressed a couple models I bought and liked until a better combination of their existing products was finally offered by Glock. I didn’t want a newcomer to make a decision to buy a 30 or 36 without at least knowing about the new and improved (IMO) little 45s even though they’ve been available for many years. Glock’s lineup has gotten much bigger over the last 4 decades and may be confusing to those that haven’t grown up waiting for “arguably better” models to be introduced.The G30SF did not exist until six years after the first post in this thread.
The G30S did not exist until eleven years after the first post in this thread.
Why was this thread resurrected?
You have a monumental task ahead if you are reviewing old threads in need of such "public service".As a public service because new Glock owners are being born every day.
It isn't likely that many newcomers are prowling through threads that approach two decades old.I didn’t want a newcomer to make a decision to buy a 30 or 36 without at least knowing about the new and improved (IMO) little 45s...
I was fortunate. I waited until there was a caliber (40SW) and pistol (Glock G27) that met all my requirements better than anything else available after the 1994 federal assault weapons ban and its magazine capacity limits. That Gen2.5 G27 remains 23 years later my principal EDC weapon, but of course now with a G33 barrel in Glock-sanctioned 357SIG configuration. (I don't believe in things like Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, or magical mythical "modern" 9x19mm Super Man ammo. )I would have saved a lot of money if the 43X was out when I decided to buy my first Glock, but I would have missed the fun along the way.
