Bought and shot my 1ST G-30. Last shot a Govt model Colt 45 in the USMC 20 years ago. I ran the tgt out to 25 yds and had all 10 rds on tgt. At 7 yds it was sweet. I love the feel of this weapon, ease of field striping, very manageable recoil. Like riding a bicycle, you never forget. I'm glad I read the many postings regarding the 30, it convinced me I made a wise choice. All those lost years of not smelling burnt gunpowder in the morning! Great site, great gun. ;a ;?
