    I have a 9 mm and a 10 mm.

    I was thinking about getting a G30 as I thought I always wanted a 45. acp.

    Now that im looking at ballistics, im not so sure I want a 45.

    My 10 mm has everything and more a 45 does.

    Im also interested in a .357 sig

    So now im in between a rock and a hard spot.

    Which should I get?

    Im debating on getting a CCW so either round would be acceptable IMOP.

    What say you? :dunno:

    The .45 ACP.

    I am biased though, it is my favorite handgun caliber:supergrin:

    What do you have for the 9mm and 10mm?

    Yeah, if you have your CCW permit then I would go with something you can carry.

    A G30 if it fits you well, or a G19 would be my choices for such a thing if Glock is what you want.

    Then I would go with the .45.

    Just my preferences. I don't have much love for the .357 sig though.

    Good luck trying to decide, let us know what you end up with:wavey:

    I am really thinking about picking up one of the 45GAPs sometime in the near future. I've got some friends that picked those up and they just absolutely rave about them-seems to be the same story on GT too.

    If you really want to have a bunch of shooting options, getting a G22 will allow you easy conversions to another 9mm or 357sig (use the same mags as 40). You can have a glock that can shoot 40, 357, and 9mm with only having to switch out barrels (and mags for 9mm). Of course, you also get conversion options w/357sig too.

    Let us know what you decide on!

    being able to interchange calibers would be the only reason id get a 40 glock.

    Why the gap?

    The ammo is more expensive and harder to find. Its basically a reworked over priced ACP in a nutshell...........

    Just curious?

    That varies remarkably from state to state. I do know that Nebraska tends to be gun friendly so it should be a pretty decent amount of time. It is 5 years here in the Great Commonwealth.

    I don't really know...lol. It may be the same reason you are not a .40 fan. I just don't have any particular need for that caliber. I would rather have a 9mm or a .45, or a .38 special if I am going the revolver route (So, for reference I don't have any love for the .40 either)


    In NE it is 5 years.

    I got mine in 2009 and it expires 2014
