    I wish I had purchased a Glock 19 a long, long time ago... it feels good in my hands, it's utterly reliable, and they have a excellent size to capacity ratio (great capacity for it's size).

    I doubt anyone buys a gun with just their head....I carry a P7M8....a bit heavy and only 9 rounds...but God I love it....go with what you feel...let the force be with you....

    Not really sure what pride of ownership really means in this regard. Kind of like the comment that Glocks have no soul. Inanimate objects as a rule are generally soulless. This is going to be a carry weapon, so it's a tool. Go with whatever tool works for YOU, not for anyone else. If you like the P30 then get the P30 and make it work for YOU. Good luck in your decision!

    G19 for the reasons already listed.

    I tried the P30 and notice some huge flaws.

    The biggest one is the Trigger:

    Not the pull but the bite you get after you follow through, also on the inside of the trigger guard there is hump inside that my finger keeps hitting and I'm sure if you had to shoot it a lot you could possible rip open the bottom of your finger.

    After you pull the trigger, the travel you have for follow through hits the magazine release and it feels like a pin stabbing my finger. I'll try it next time I'm at the shop but wonder if you could drop the mag accidentally by just pulling the trigger if you do it hard enough at the right angle

    Don't get me wrong I'm sure its HK reliable however, if I had to do it this would drive me CRAZY.

    If your considering GLOCK stay with it. Plus you can completely detail strip it in a total of about 25 seconds, can't do that with an HK. Proven design parts easy to get. Mags cheap. +you can buy the GLOCK and use the money you save in lieu of the P30 to buy extra ammo, holsters, belts, training, and mags.

    The G19 was the first of many Glocks that I own. I like the grip angle. I used to put Hogue grips on all of my Glocks but after extended shooting they move around too much IMO. Now I just go bareback on all my Glocks and I shoot them well.

    BTW my G19 has several thousand rounds through it without one single malfunction.

    I have no experience with the HK to give an opinion on it.

    Good luck.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    G19 as well, though most of the time I'm carrying one of my g17's.

    Nothing HK (handguns) has ever tripped my trigger, no pun intended. Get the Glock with Trijicon night sights, a holster and some ammo and still have money to spare.

    I have had or have just about every caliber Glock has made. Never had a problem in many years. The Glock 19 is one of the most popular for the reasons listed. But my next purchase is a P30. The modular grip is a huge bonus for me as well as the mag release.
    I'm still surprised Glock has not jumped on the modular grip "wagon". Personal choice.
