    Cost of .45 ACP (Thoughts on Glock 30 .22LR conversion kit?)

    First off...hey guys...new to the forum. Been carrying consistently for a few months now.

    I know how important training/repetition are when becoming more and more proficient with your chosen self defense tool. Lately, I have been taking notice at the impact that buying .45ACP ammo is having on my wallet. I plan to take a "Level II" class here in TN soon, and one of the requirements is 400rds of ammunition. For practice, I usually shoot reloads, which cost around $25 a box (from a reputable local reloader). $25 X 8 Boxes (400rds) = $200....plus the cost of the class.

    I stumbled upon a .22LR conversion for my Glock 30, and since a brick (500rds) of .22LR is $30, figured it may be in my best economic interest to buy the conversion so that I can practice much more often for way less money.

    Here's the site for the conversion kit. I would love to hear your feedback on this. Thanks.

    I do not know about the kit; our local tranning center has allowed me to take a 1000 round class with my ruger MK I 22lr; ( i emailed them and asked) this is not ideal (I carry a Glock 22 40 cal) but it would make the class affordable... My dad carrys a 1911 and there are lower cost 22lr in that style (chippawa) I think, also he has a 357 mag DA revolver that frame was easy to get in 22lr.... so the idea is 100% good I think, in fact should I would rather pratice with the frame of the gun I intend to use, as my ruger MK I is hardly my defense weapon...

    The website i provided in my first post has a bunch of them. They're about $260 or so. You can even buy additional modified mags, as the kit only comes with one.
