    Today at my range I took a look around to see what my fellow shooters were using. To the right of me there was a pair that were shooting a Lorcin .380. I said hello and he asked me what I was going to be shooting today. I told him I was going to shoot my Glock 30. As I was getting settled he was shooting when all of a sudden nothing. The fellow took his Lorcin apart to find a broken firing pin. He explained he only paid $60.00 for it used. I guess you get what you pay for.

    I started shooting and killing my target.

    To the left of me there was a fellow with an expensive looking 1911. I observed him clear a few failures to feed. My G30 functioned flawlessly. I also killed my target better than him. I guess you sometimes don't get what you pay for eighter.

    I guess this makes my G30 the best value for the money at the range today.

    Absolutely. Especially if you can find one used, like I did. ;f

    Yeah Buddy! Mine was a range rental, they wanted $450 for it and I dickered down to $400. A little Hoppe's #9 and she was as good as new. Perhaps better-the copper stuff was long gone.

    Ljunatic,

    At what distance were you shooting that target from?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Low and left usually indicate a trigger pulling control issue. Smooth pulls, no aniticipating the recoii, and steady breathing should fix that.

    GREG W :
    I was shooting from 7-8 meters at a quick pace, though not as fast as my G17. I was able to bulleye the first shot and went low and left from there.This gun has a nice 5 lb trigger and I am used to a slicked up 3.5 lb. I was amazed at the accuracy right out of the box on a gun I had never handled before. I think the only change I will make is a set of night sites before a switch to the G30 for my carry weapon. Everything i read here about this model was true IMHO

    Dengel and smoney: I am not a bullseye shooter, and that group will serve me very well in a defensive situation, But I am sure to improve, as those were the first shots I ever fired from a .45 and with a heavier trigger to boot. My happiness was over the natural accuracy this gun displayed with very little effort on my part.

    Ljunatic,

    Not bad for a first time.

    I do most of my practice at 25 yards. I find that when I do this I can shoot much faster and accurately when I bring my target in to the closer 10 yard mark. One day I hope to be able to shoot smilely faces on my target.

    Take Care,
    Greg
