    I believe I've seen complaints about Glocks on this or other forums concerning re-loads. I'm thinking Glock says in it's owners manual not to use re-loads under any circumstances.

    Between my subcompact 9, sc 40, and sc 45 I really can't discern much difference in recoil. When the crap hits the fan, you won't either. Point and areate. Practice the way you would shoot in an actual situation. Standing at a range trying to put bullets through the same hole won't help you any in a self defense situation. Work on "combat accuracy" and you won't pay any attention to recoil. I've put 200 rounds through my G36 and they were all rapid point shooting at a 2x2 post-it note. I have to "aim" if you will just off the upper right corner of the note and I can wear it out consistently from 7 yards as fast as I can pull the trigger. Now, they aren't all in a pretty little hole, but each one is getting a piece of the note. That's close enough for me.

    That also seems to be the case with the G30. PLUS Im left handed. Try finding a L.H serpa style for a glock 30. And If someone finds one P.M me with a link. All i can find is the fobus retention paddle.

    I will keep my eye out for one. By he way, I use the Fobus GL4 for my G30 very often, and the GL2 for my G23 and 22. I really like them.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!

    G36 is awesome! I have carried one for 3 years and will never look back. Congrats on your new family member!

    I shoot reloads in my G30, and it can get finicky if not sized and seated correctly. SWCs just will not work; LRNs work fine. I have no issue shooting reloads, but there's no way I'd buy a box of them at some gun show. No way!

    Congrats! I like the 'feel' of the 36 better than the 30, but as has been pointed out, a lot of the 'extras' exclude the 36. I ended up going to the G23, but I'll keep the Glock 45's on the maybe list for the future.

    The Glocks are addicting. They just work. I love my Glocks.

    I just picked one up recently, very nice .45. In the short time I've owned it I haven't encountered any problems concealing it. That thinner frame does make that much of a difference. And 2 of my most accurate handguns out of the box are this, the 36, and another Glock, the 22.

    I don't shoot anything but reloads for practice in my 19 & 26. I carry factory for defense, but all the practice ammo is made on my Dillon 550. I've fired literally thousands of reloads in my Glocks with no trouble at all. I use Berry's copper plated lead bullets because they are the cheapest thing I can find and they work great.

    I shoot reloads in all my long and short guns. I pay attention when I'm loading them and they work fine.

    Since the last update I put another 200 rounds a total now of about 500 rounds. I haven't had any problems since those first 50 gun shoots great and I'm really enjoying the flawless shooting. Needless to say that I fully believe that it was those reloads not saying they are all bad. People that reload there own generally have no problems.
