I've made a trip to the dark side... I've bought a Block. Over the years I've shoot a number of Glocks and can't say I really like a single one and that carries over to the other striker fire pistols. The Glocks just didn't fit my paws. I have kind of short fingers and the block like grip along with the grip angle made it a stretch just to reach the trigger properly. Then I had a chance to fire and work with a Glock 30S last winter. It has a shorten frame and slightly narrower slide than the standard Glock 30. Darn if it didn't fit my hand and point well. I had no problem getting my finger on the trigger properly and it shot very well. I really hate to say I kind of liked it.
Well to the point; I picked up a Glock 30SF .45acp as a carry gun. I can't say that is pretty, classy or cool. Itís a Glock. It doesn't have a nice crisp trigger like my revolvers or the 1911s I've owned. I do hit the target. Having 10+1 (maybe 9+1 is more accurate) of big fat, heavy .45 caliber slugs is pretty appealing. It is pretty much the Craftsman hammer of pistols. It ain't pretty, it is black plastic. It is good, and cheap, tool. I've got some Trijicon HD night sights coming to improve the sights for my old eyes. I may send it off to Robar for a little custom work like texturing the grip, rounding the trigger guard and adding some serrations on the front of the slide, maybe. I'll live with it awhile before that happens.
I only have one complaint with the Glock 30SF and that is that tenth round is a pretty darn hard to get in the magazine and it is hard to chamber that first round. Load the magazine with nine and there are no problems. I've been told that with a bit of break in on the magazine and that issue resolves itself. With more than 300 rounds down range over the last few weeks it is still a problem but it is getting easier to get that last round in the magazine.
One a scale of 1 to 100 I'll give the Glock 30SF a solid 92. It is a great tool even if has no soul. I picked up some Hornady Zombie Max just to have a box. Cor-Bon Self Defense 230 gr. ammo will live in this pistol.
