    Some Shot Show speculation I am hearing...

    1) Glock has introduced the new G30SF.

    2) I am also hearing S&W has introduced it's M&P 45 Compact (optional thumb safety) w/ 4 inch barrel.

    3) Also hearing rumors Sig is offering .22 conversion for P226

    4) Springfield is adding a thumb safety to their 4" & 5" XD model pistols.

    [Disclosure: I cannot personally verify these things to be accurate]


    GLOCK, Inc. Introduces New GLOCK 30 SF .45 AUTO Short Frame Pistol at SHOT Show in Las Vegas

    08:00 EST Saturday, February 02, 2008

    SMYRNA, Ga., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- After releasing the highly popular G21 SF at the 2007 SHOT Show in Orlando, Florida, the Austrian Handgun manufacturer announced today the release of the compact version of the .45 AUTO short frame pistol, the model 30 SF. The newly released pistol includes new features to the GLOCK pistol that have been desired for the last couple of years by military, law enforcement and civilian markets. These features were fulfilled with the G21 SF pistol and the GLOCK 30 SF offers all the accuracy and power of the model G21 SF in a more-compact, highly concealable, faster- handling .45 AUTO companion pistol. These features include the GLOCK tactical rail for modular mounting of GLOCK Tactical Lights and weapon accessories. The 30 SF also features a hammer forged octagonal rifled barrel with a 1 in 15.75 inch rate of twist designed for increased durability, low maintenance and precision of accuracy when firing.

    With the "SF" designation, the G30 receiver has been reengineered to provide a smaller diameter grip, resulting in a trigger reach that is more comfortable for individuals with smaller hands. This reduction in the grip does not affect the pistol's reliability and accuracy.

    In order to utilize older magazines with the G30 SF, the ambidextrous magazine catch will not be offered as an option as it was with the G21 SF. With a magazine extending slightly below the receiver, the G30 SF offers a 10 round magazine capacity. The compact form of the G30 SF makes the pistol a perfect backup weapon for law enforcement to attach to their protective vests or comfortably carry in a concealed rig.

    The G30 SF will be available with the GLOCK Standard Rail design that will allow the use of all GLOCK Tactical lights (GTL 10, GTL 21, GTL 22, GTL 51 and GTL 52). This standard feature on the G30 and G30 SF continues the tradition of excellent reliability and dependability of GLOCK lighting products designed for the GLOCK family of pistols.

    All GLOCK pistols, including the new G30 SF are backed by the GLOCK Limited Lifetime Warranty. With exceptional world-class customer service and support provided from the GLOCK, Inc. plant in Smyrna, GA, GLOCK customers have learned the importance of rock solid reliability backed up with support and service that is unmatched in the industry. "With our superior engineered pistols and accessories, our incomparable service staff, and our employee's single minded desire to satisfy each and every GLOCK customer, the lifetime experience of owning a GLOCK is second to none," states GLOCK, Inc. Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Gary Fletcher. "Adding the G30 SF to the GLOCK family of pistols is a natural progression of our product line as the G30 SF meets the need for a concealable and reliable backup pistol for Law Enforcement and civilian concealed carry requirements harnessing the powerful .45 AUTO cartridge in a shorter frame."

    I was on the Springfield Armory web site yesterday and they are offering the thumb safety on the XD - I believe on both the 4" service model and full size 5" XD.

    I was hoping Ruger would do a steel .380 gun design similar to the mustang but I should have known in order to keep costs down its mostly polymer and striker fired. Looks like a kel-tec clone.

    What's that Ruger LCP? A Kel-Tec P3AT rebadged as ruger? Looks a whole lot like it.

    Feels a whole lot better than a Kel-Tec, and has a slide lock. They won't be able to make them fast enough.

    I was looking for more information about the new magazine for the M&P 45 and cant find a picture of it in the firearm to see how much larger it is, nor could I find a good picture of the compact models. Does anyone have a picture of each that they could share? S&W hasn't even updated their page
