Hey, fellow gunners.
I have a problem. I'm downright stuck as to what my upcoming concealed carry piece is going to be. I have settled on either the Glock 29 or 30. I need some input please, without recommending another manufacturer, another model, or flaming each other with Colt vs. Glock barbs. I am not trolling. I just need some friendly input.
Here is where I am stuck:
I love the 10mm and the .45. The 10mm can launch a 135 gr. bullet at over 1450 fps, creating beaucoup energy. The problem is the 29 frame has only two finger grooves, with the baby finger hanging out there in no man's land. I feel this would create a problem with maintaining a good solid hold on the gun while launching full-power ammo. I have the model 20 (and love it) but it is way too big to carry concealed. Ammo is getting very expensive for the 10mm; as good as it is, I'm afraid this round is going to be abolished from the public domain pretty soon.
I dig the .45, too (have a Colt 1911A1)
. What I like about the 30 is the extension on the magazine that allows the baby finger to add control.
So it's an expensive 135 grainer going 1450 with poor handgrip control, or an affordable 185 grainer going about 1050 with great handgrip control.
With this being the "1911" forum, why do I feel the recommendation is going to be the 30?
Talk to me.
