    I want a .45ACP. I am torn between a Glock 21 SF and a Glock 30 SF. I like the 21 because it has a larger magazine capacity. I like the 30 because it is compact and better for concealed carry. I want a pistol that I can shoot comfortably, but yet carry concealed. I am also interested in buying a threaded barrel and suppressor. Which one of these would best suit my needs? Thanks.

    As far as capacity goes, you could always use the G21 mags in the G30. The issue of size and concealability is something that you will have to hash out with yourself. We are all different, I have no problem concealing my G21 using a IWB holster and proper clothing.

    I bought both the G21SF and the G30SF. I ended up investing a lot of money in the G21. Then I sold the G30 to get a smaller back up gun. I still have the G21SF and it is one of my top 45s. It is Just an all around great pistol. Just be sure that you have the mits to handle the fatter grip.
    Another option besides the G30 is the G36. I bought my father one a few years ago. I don't have much trigger time on it, but I enjoy shooting it.

    Good luck with your decision, both are excellent pistols IMO.

    Yeah, and you could even get a grip sleeve for the 21 mags that will give you the feel of a full length grip when you use them. You could supress either one at will, either way all it takes is a threaded barrel and the appropriate supressor.

    You didn't post your state, so I can only guess your climate, but I generally have carried some pretty 'big' pistols without any real difficulty, for instance the USP .40 fullsize was my first gun I ever carried. No issue, felt great. Carry is more of an individual thing than anyone here could help you with. Gotta try it out. I will say that a 30SF with 9 round magazines is one of the guns I would like to get for carry eventually.

    G30SF. it's more ergonomic than the G21SF if you have small hands. (no, they're not the same feel)

    accuracy is about the same, plus you can conceal the G30SF a lot easier.

    Are the magazines 9 or 10 rounds or are there two kinds of magazines for the 30SF? Also, does anyone have any pictures of the grip sleeves and what capacity the magazines are that the sleeves are on? Furthermore, does anyone have a suppressed 30SF? Where can I find a 30SF threaded barrel? Thanks.
