I'm envious of the Gen 2 model 21; I had to remove the finger grooves (protrusions) from my Gen 3, also took them off the 30.
I had a Gen 2 model 21 back in 1993, should have never parted with it.

I use to have a 21, too big for my hands, a 36, never warmed up to it and the 30, the 30 was good and accurate gun but got traded with the rest, the only polymer .45 that I own now is the HK .45C if the 30 would have been the newer 30S, I would probably still had it.

I have a 21, 30s and 36. The 30s is my EDC and the 21 with WML is on the nightstand. May sell the 36 as it doesn't get used very often.

I divorced Glock a few years ago, but the 30S sure looks good for a CC weapon 10+1 and can use the 21 mags for reloads and a thin slide.

Wow....very nice. I am thinking of dipping my toes into the Glock waters. I heard that once you dive in to the Glock water the current moves swiftly and it sweeps you up. :smile: Looking at the 30s

This one started out as a Glock 21SF. It's had a few things done to it. the grip chop was done to fit a Glock 30 magazine with a Glock 21 base plate. This makes the overall grip about the same length as a Glock 19. The grip reduction gives it a circumference very similar the the 19, as well.

I've got a G30s. Looked at getting a 41, but decided on a G40 for now. My stable is not shy of .45's, so I can wait! Nice looking round-up there!

I've got a 30sf. Shoots nice, but not as nice as my ultracarry2. Then again, I got it in order to have a carryable 45 that I wouldn't get bent out of shape if scuffs happened. I'd love to have a 36 some day. Don't feel the need for a 21. I can't have more than 10rds anyway. If I ever move to a state that respects 2A, I'm happy to just add a few G21 mags for use in the G30.

I understand the appeal and success of Glock. I have had many, and have lots of friends who bet their lives on them.

That being said, appx 3 weeks ago my new G21 gen 4 kaboomed on me after round 53 through the pistol. S&B 230 g fmj. Nobody hurt, couple people surprised, live in ATL so drove to Smyrna. Everything ok with gun now.

As this is my second KB with Glock (years ago G31 .357 sig) I have replaced all my Glocks, or have sold, with other models.

I know they all do not KB. But I feel as with this incident somebody was telling me something. And speaking just for me, I shall go another direction.

I've never a Ka-boom .. With any of my Glocks .....my brother in law has been in LE for 40 + years and a State LE firearms instructor for 30 + years ... He has never witnessed a Glock exploding before ... I can only imagine how many rounds he has seen shot through a Glock .. most 40 S&W .... Back in the day he told me he saw some barrel loosen and a couple coming off S&W model 66's 357 mag..

As for Glock 21's .. At the range ,I've seen 1000's of rounds of 45 Super , ran through a 21 .. Only changes made was a different recoil spring ..... The 21 is known for its strength the 21 and 20 (10mm) share the same frame ...

Uncle of mine personally had one KB. No real clear reason though. Could have easily been an overcharged round, or a round set back too much. Who knows.

I'm very pleased with my G21 gen4. I think I saved myself from a ka-boom once. Only failure I've ever had in the gun was a round that failed to chamber. Cleared it and put it back in the magazine and tried to chamber it again with no success. After further inspection I saw the issue. The round was seated way to deep in the casing and I simply didn't notice.(federal 230gr brass) I'm lucky I didn't fire it because it obviously would have had a over pressure condition. I think I might have saved it. If I find it I'll add a picture. Great gun though. I try and inspect my ammo while I load it now just because of that one defective round.

Bowie does good work. One of the reasons Glocks are my choice is exactly what your signature line says. The EXPERTS all recommend them......for a reason. And a Glock shooting .45 is darn effective.
