    New Glock 45 ACP

    Went to the LGS this morning and compared the different models of Glock 30's. I compared the 30S, the Gen 4 G30, and the G30 SF.

    I didn't notice the size difference on the 30s until I put it beside the other G30 models. Then you really notice a difference. All 3 pistols felt good in my hand but the Gen 4 checkering really stood out to me. I almost went with the 30s but decided to build upon my Gen 4 "family" of Glocks, so I went with the Gen 4 G30. I carry my G27 most of the time, so the 30 will be more of a truck/nightstand gun, with the option of carrying concealed. It was also nice that all 3 pistols were priced the same, so that did not factor into the decision.

    I then went down to the local WalMart and lucked upon a 100 count box of Winchester White Box 230 grain FMJ's for the new 30.




    The growing Gen 4 "family".

    I can't believe you were able to walk into a gun store, and actually walk out with a brand new Glock...hell even had choices! You sir should buy a lottery ticket!

    Congrats . . . I have a Gen 3, G30 and G36 and wouldn't part with either of them. That is, unless I could find a brand new G30s, then I might consider selling.

    Glocks have been back for a while here. All models, all calibers - for the most part. About $550 to $600.

    You chose a nice gun! Enjoy it.

    The dealer I frequent is a large LE stocking dealer for Glock, S&W, and Sig. They have had a good and steady selection coming in the store since this whole mess started. They have also managed to keep a reasonable supply of ammo even though the prices have been a little high.

    Was able to get out and put a few rounds through the G30 this afternoon once I finished mowing. The G30 is certainly softer shooting than the G27 by a noticeable amount. It also seems more accurate. My wife shot it and was impressed by how soft it shot and by its accuracy. I'm very happy with my decision!
