Ever wonder why the G30 always seems to make it into these "which one" threads?
There's a mighty good reason, let me tell you.
That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...
Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

I've owned the G30 and the PM45. After 800-1000 rounds through that PM45 the rails on the poly frame were fraying...gun went bang everytime, accurate, had a butter smooth DAO trigger with good reset...but was slowly getting beat down. Polyrails against a metal slide in a compact .45 platform = design flaw.
The G30 is an AWESOME compact .45 with excellent capacity, though chunky for AIWB.....atleast for me, I didn't like the trigger, it also wormed around in my hand on quick shots....nomatter how much I attempted to work through it, (cause it's a GLOCK it's an awesome compact .45 platform) I just didn't like it overall.
Don't know anything about the M&P.
I have a Glock 23, 27, and 30. The 30 is the latest edition.
I traded a Glock 21 for my 30. Best decision I ever made. Nice and compact. 10+1. Accurate, durable and reliable. It has the flexibility of accomodating for larger magazines and with the proper holster, size doesn't matter. It is thicker than the choices listed but it makes up for it in benefits. 45 ACP is my winter carry gun but winter only lasted 3 weeks here in Florida.

I vote for the Glock 30. I have not shot the others though. I have a G30 and love it. Accurate, reliable and I can carry IWB or OWB and it conceals easily each way. I love mine.

I have had 3 G30's they are great shooting guns, but they always feel really thick in my hands, bulky I guess. I like the feel of the M&P 45c alot better, I just traded the 30 I bought recently for one and I love it. The M&P's are fine weapons, I now have 3 of them. I also really love the feel of my new Kahr CW45, great shooter, really thin, you should really give this one a hard look. All of these are great reliable pistols, but I would go and try them out before buying and not just take someone's word. Get the one that feels right to you, you can't go wrong with any of them.
It's prolly the closest we'll ever come to seeing the real thing...
