USA -(AmmoLand.com)- The Glock 30SF was my first handgun. I had a few requirements when I first started shopping.
I wanted something extremely versatile that would cover all my bases, something I could enjoy taking out to the range, but that was also compact enough to be comfy in my small hands. But as my first handgun and, thus, primary self defense weapon, it also needed to have major stopping power.
In an evaluation of 45 ACP subcompacts, Gun Tests magazine asked how best to package the big bullet in a small concealable machine. The $687 Glock G30SF feeds from a high-capacity magazine with rounds compressed in a staggered column. Its ignition is via a striker system, and the frame is polymer, not steel.
The Glock 30 is a compact version of the Glock 21 .45 ACP pistol. It is a Glock in all respects. Light weight, highly reliable, and the small size does not hinder accuracy. The Glock 30 will punch big 45 caliber holes with the precision of any Glock. The Glock 30 holds 10 rounds of .45 ACP and will accept the larger capacity 13 round magazine. of the Glock 21. The magazine has a thick base which does provide a rest for the little finger. Shooting the Glock 30 with standard magazine is comfortable and allows plenty of control. If you have large hands then perhaps a Pearce or Scherer magazine extension will help.
