    Wow! What a gun. I would have liked to rent a 30, but they didn't have one. I can shoot this gun better than my USP 45C. I want to get the 30 because of the 10 round mags, but I will probably get both. Very accurate. I remember shooting my USP for the first time and not doing too well (it was my first handgun, should have gotten a 9mm), not so with the 36.

    Is the grip on the 30 that much fatter? The 36 felt fine, but I'm just wondering if anyone can tell that much of a difference.

    I bought a 36 because it is easier to carry for CCW than the 30, it can hold seven rounds with one in the chamber, or if you use a mag extension you can get 9 rounds.

    The G30 slide is only about 1/10" fatter than the G36 slide; don't know about the G36 grip, except that I tried it and don't like it.

    This will always go on. This 30 or 36 thing. You have got to try both. I did and ended up with the 36. It just works for me.

    I own and shoot both. I think the difference in recoil is clearly noticable with the G36 being a tad sharper; but that said, put it in the "so what?" category. It's still not a problem (problem as in speed of recovery back to sight picture) for fast pairs or strings. I probably enjoy shooting my G30 more than my G36, since it is milder in recoil and holds more rounds; but for daily concealed carry, I tend to wear my G-36. If the narrow grip is comfortable to you (and for years Jeff Cooper noted the real drawback to the 1911 family is that the grip is too large for a good part of the population, so a slime grip is generally a good thing) and you shoot it well, then the G36 should make a great little, but potent, carry gun for you. I dunno, works for me. Stay in Condition Yellow

    I meant with a mag extension you get 8.

    Comparing the G30 w/ USPc 45, they seem similar in grip size. If you are happy w/ the grip on your HK, you shouldn't notice much difference w/ the 30 except that you have 2 more rounds per mag.
