    Opinions needed on buying a Glock 30sf

    Shooters:
    I am extremely interested in the Glock 30sf. A short bio on me -Marine Corp Veteran, & happily married! Both my wife & myself shoot our Glock 19, Glock 23, and Sig Sauer 239-9mm.
    My question involves purchasing a Glock 30sf. Our local range does'nt rent this handgun but my wife and I have held this handgun and like the way it fits our hands. This handgun would be used for both plinking targets at our range and protecting our home.
    My concerns are -(1) realiability in functioning
    (2) felt recoil
    (3) accuracy
    (4) double taps-how fast
    (5) thoughts you may have on this handgun

    Thank-you for your thoughts & time!:wavey

    Less recoil than your G23. The .40 is a snappy round, the .45 is more of a push. Great shooting guns, I just couldn't get used to the huge grip.

    Reliability? It's a Glock.

    Felt Recoil, accuracy, double taps? These come down to the shooter, as what otehrs experience may not be the same for you.

    Well lets see:

    #1 One of the most realiable guns you can buy

    #2 Recoil actually is not that bad and like said your 23 has more.

    #3 I feel it is my most accurate Glock I own

    #4 Faster then the BG can move!

    #5 Very bias. I think it is one of the best choices out there that is why I sold my 23 and never looked back! Get one and thank me later.

    I agree with the above writers. Wondering, though, why the SF instead of the Glock 30? 3mm difference, but you might want to try them both first.

    Thank-you for your post. Thank goodness the G30 has less recoil then the G23 because after shooting 100 rounds tru the G23 my hand is stinging a bit.

    I would say that the recoil is "different" rather than "less" but everyone handles recoil differently. Personally, I'm not a fan of the .40 round, but I like the .45 (which is why I own a G36). Either way, you'll end up with a nice firearm.

    I really like my 30sf. I tried the g36 and the g30, but the 30sf felt the best to me.

    It is a very accurate gun. It carries relatively well. I carry mine in an Mtac by Comptac.

    If you already a fan of the Glock brand, then you will not be disappointed with a g30.

    I haven't fired the 30SF, but have fired the 27 and the 36. I tried the 27 before purchasing either a 30 or 36. I felt that the recoil of the 27 was just a little more than I cared for in a SD gun. I was really in hopes that I would like either the 30 or 36. I couldn't test either of these since they are not offered for rent locally. Holding the 30 and the 36 at a gun show a couple of weeks ago I felt that I liked the grip on the 36 a little better, so I bought it. After firing 150 rounds through it last week, I really like the way it feels. It has a lot less felt recoil than that of the 27. I'm kinda of sorry that I couldn't try the 30, as I really would like the extra rounds. Good luck with your choice.
