    Glock 30 45ACP

    I carry a glock 30 (45ACP) with 10 round double stack mags and have had no problems concealing (I am 5'10" and 170lbs) or handling/shooting. It is a glock so it is extremely reliable. I have put over 1000 rounds through it at the range, cleaned after every trip to range. Still clicking along.

    I have heard some folks say the angle of glocks is weird/unnatural but have had no problems getting sighted in at range and practicing draws, etc. The glock 30 feels natural to me.

    Even before B.O. was elected, 45GAP ammo was hard to find here. Since he was elected, haven't seen any on my usual stores shelves.

    I own over a dozen handguns. The one that is by my bed EVERY night is mt Glock 21. When I go out during the day I will usually carry my Glock 23. Both are loaded with Federal's HST rnd. I have tried the Taurus and although they were fine weapons they were not for we. I prefer my Glock's over my Sigs,Paras,HK's,Springfields or Colts. they are lightweight simple to operate accurate, parts are easy to switch out and magazines are VERY INEXPENSIVE!!! (CDNN Glock .40=$17.99ea)

    You cant go wrong with Smith and Wesson. My wife and I both have MP9's Her hammer is internal where mine is an older style that has the external hammer. She just loves hers! slap in the mag. and away you go. It works well for leftys too.
    Before you go Glockominded, Check out the S&W's. Borrow or rent one before you spend the money.Just my suggestion.

  5. Glock?

    You owe it to yourself to try a Smith & Wesson M&P .45 - Sweet Machine - handles like a dream, fixed sights accurately making you feel solid behind it! Did I mention MADE IN THE USA?

Hubby recently bought a compact Colt Commander .45 - it looks exactly like my Springfield (inside, too) and he says the trigger is even nicer than mine. Both of these pistols cost a LOT less than the Glock, feel better in the hand, and they have built in safeties (for those of you who need them [grin]). And they conceal easily, too. I wear my Springfield all the time, and no-one knows it's there unless I tell them. And yes, I HAVE shot Glocks. They are ugly, uncomfortable and expensive. They do shoot nice, but that is the only thing I can say for them. If you absolutely HAVE to spend a lot of money for your pistol, get a Kimber.
    Glocks are expensive? That's news to me. They go for about $500-$550 NIB here. My Springfield Mil-Spec 1911 on the other hand was $740.

    go for the 1911 they are safe even cocked and locked. the 1911 has less self inflicted wounds and accidental disharges than any other hand gun used by police or military. the thing it is safe for many reasons
    -the safety is strong and stops all firing components ie sear disconnect
    -the grip safety stops the trigger bar
    -firing pin requires a fall from the full cocked position to fire at an uninhibited speed hence you could lower the hammer accidently let is slip from half way and it wont fire the firing pin channel is longer than the pin itself and works on inertia
    glocks are known for thier accidents and the glocks in .45 have a pretty hi felt recoil hindering follow on shooting. also you are unable to fire +P in them. i have seen in my lifetime two cracked frames from +P in glocks one of them being one i owned. And nothing is better at putting the bad guy down than a +P .45 hp. just my thoughts

    Hi again all! I had forgotten about this post.

    I have done a LOT of research since making this post and I was finally convinced of the safety of the 1911.

    I ended up with a Kimber Ultra Carry II and I love it! Very accurate with 600 reliable rounds through it now. Just a slight extractor adjustment.

    Thanks for all the help and suggestions!

    Glock 23 Gen 4 / Glock 30SF Gen3 .45 ACP / Glock 33 Gen3 .356 Sig / Kimber Ultra Carry II .45 ACP / Interarms Stainless Steel PPK .380
