    Hello-I am a new member of this forum. A short bio on me -Marine Corp Veteran, & happily married! Both my wife & myself shoot our Glock 19, Glock 23, and Sig Sauer 239-9mm.
    My question involves purchasing a Glock 30sf. Our local range does'nt rent this handgun but my wife and I have held this handgun and like the way it fits our hands. This handgun would be used for both plinking targets at our range and protecting our home.
    My concerns are -(1) realiability in functioning
    (2) felt recoil
    (3) accuracy
    (4) double taps-how fast
    (5) thoughts you may have on this handgun

    Thank-you for your thoughts & time!

    PS: I'm thinking that my wife & I can handle the snappy recoil of our G23 -the G30sf will be fun to shoot.:)

    I had one a few years ago. The only thing I really disliked about it was its thickness, which made it less comfortable to carry IWB. It was reliable with round-nose profile bullets and once I sorted out the magazines. Its recoil actually felt softer than the G27 I had.

    Go get it!

    As for double taps, I'm sure you've taken advantage of the Glock's trigger reset?

    i rented it and put 200 rds thru it and I didn't like the pinky rest on the magazine. I kept pinching my finger while reloading, it sucked.

    edit- oh, but it was more accurate than I am. a bit thick, but nothing you couldn't make work.

    Once I got used to the greater muzzle flip of the .45 vs. the 9mm I was accustomed to, I was able to make it "rock."
