    My local shop has a used Glock 30 for $495 and a new Glock 38 for $549. I am looking at getting one of them but can not decide on which one. I like the way they both feel but I think I like the 38 just a tad bit more. The guy in the shop says the only downside is that GAP amo is a bit harder to come by than the ACP. Any info or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    I would offer $425 for the G30 and stop at $450. I am not a fan of the 45GAP and why have 8 + 1 if you can get 10 + 1.

    LOL, I just realized that this is a Glock 30 Forum...should have figured what the answer was going to be. Well I decided on the Glock 30 and I will be picking it up next Saturday after my 30 day wait is up. I just got a Glock 17 a few weeks ago and now I must have a Glock .45. I liked the feel of the 38 but the 30 seemed like it might be a better weapon for my needs. I will let you guys know how I like it when I get it next week and go straight to the range.

    Good choice. The G30 rocks. I'm not a GAP fan, to be honest.

    I picked up a G30 yesterday for $529 NIB. Not the best price, not the worst.
    Enjoy.

    No CHP?

    The law changed last July so if you have a Concealed Handdgun Permit in VA you don't have to wait the 30 days between handgun purchases.

    I think the G30 is too big for my hands, but I'm not a fan of the .45 GAP either. I prefer the Glock 36.

    RWC, that is a good price. I paid $535 fixed sights when everywhere else wanted $589 and up. I just had to drive about 40 minutes north but i have found a GOOD gun shop.

    AMMO PRICES!!!

    You will save a ton on practice ammo. Premium Self Defense ammo is high for all of us.

    Also, you will get a much wider selection of ammunition types with the 45 ACP.

    Great Choice
