Well, I didn't get the Glock 29 or 30 after all the help you guys gave me. Instead, the history bug bit me and I got a T/C (American made) Hawken .50 cal flintlock rifle.
I fell in love with blackpowder when I bought a Colt Blackpowder Arms 1860 Army percussion revolver a few years ago. Man, is it fun. I didn't have a blackpowder rifle, so being familiar with percussion, I went with the flintlock.
Took her to the range today and I honestly felt honored and humbled to be able to partake of these traditional, historic-type firearms.
A little research showed me that the flintlock dates to about 1607. The percussion dates to about 1830. Isn't it odd that percussion arms are much more popular than flint when flint reigned supreme for over 220 years, while the percussion only lasted about 30? Sorry about the digression, but this fact is so odd. It's probably our love and fascination with the war between the states.
I suggest you try blackpowder. It is a lot of fun and makes one very instrospective in regard to who we are and the road that led us here. The whole lineage thing becomes much easier to grasp.
The Glock 30 will come later when I have some extra money.
