Man what a sweet gun! I rented a Glock 36 before and was really impressed with how controllable the pistol was. I was worried the G30 would be too thick for my hands, but it really wasn't. I shot better with it than I ever did with my Hk 45c. We shot some S&B and about 20 Corbon 185 +p's I had around.Recoil wasn't that much more with those. You can really notice a difference in loudness between the two rounds, esp standing behind someone shooting. A g30 will probably be my next pistol.
