One of the reasons for accuracy, is the amount of bullet touching the steel of the barrel. The .45 gives you lots of that, plus it is not a high pressure cartridge.

I like 9mm, just do, lots of cartridges. And if there ever was a gun fight were more rounds were beneficial, and there has been, I too want lots of controllable
rounds, and a spare. "More is better, always" Hence Glock 19.

The standard mid-size Glock platform feels amazing in my hand, so the first Glock I'll own is the 19 or 23. However, the 30S has a lot to offer. I can't wait to hold one. That's a small package to throw that many big fat .45s.
16 Pistols, 5 Rifles, 1 Shotgun, no time to shoot them

There's really no difference between this and the regular G30, which I like as a basic EDC/truck gun.

The G30 family is accurate, not sure if it's the different barrels Glock uses only in the 45s or the properties of the 45 cartridge itself matching the Glock design.

It's really the only Glock I still own and like to shoot.

I'll own one, if I can ever get my hands on it. They're like finding a leprechaun riding a unicorn...

I own several Glocks (27,29,19,20). I like them for what they are but dont love them. I call my Glocks my "Cornflake" guns. You can live on it but its not my first choice. My Glocks are my "beater guns" that ride in my ATV,truck, etc... They point all wrong for me. I have had to put ghost triggers in to make that horrible mushy trigger liveable but neither of them are as good as others right out of the box and a stock Walther PPQ trigger will absolutely embarrass any modded Glock trigger. I shoot my Sig,Walther PPQ,1911's much better and all point much more natural. For me, Glock was revolutionary in the early 90's but haven't evolved to keep up with other brands.
"I'm a good guy with a gun" What do I care if I give up some freedom or rights?....The Goverment will take care of me. This kind of thinking is now in the majority and it should concern you.

I am very happy with my recent first Glock, the G19gen4! Now I am interested in the G30 for compactness and more firepower!

I haven’t handled any of the newer GLOCK 30’s, but I’ve been very pleased with my gen 3. It’s comfortable to shoot and accurate, which seems to be the general consensus of most owners.

Been a G21 fan for years,But it would be handy to have a smaller carry gun.
Are they all that really the 30s I mean?
