    Hey I am in the market for a smaller 45 and my friend suggested a glock 30 or 33. While both appear to be great tools, I was wondering is there anything out there similiar in size by other manf for around the same price? gunbroker.com has these for around 500 to 519

    thanks.

    A G33 is not a .45 ACP.

    Eccept for the g36 (single stack) and the g30 (double stack), look into the kahr cw/p series pistols. They are single stack and a little more than the glocks but are very good guns.:thumbup:

    I carry a G30 and a G21 (not at the same time). Both are easy to shoot. The 21 is huge and I mostly Open Carry that one. The G30 is concealable, but still wide. Look into the Kahr PM45. Kahr makes the slimmest semi-auto's out there. My next gun will be the Kahr PM9 as a secondary (pocket) gun.

    The G30 is one of the very very best choices in a smaller sized .45acp that you will find. Exceptionally soft shooting, very accurate, reliability is virtually assured, and the size is not difficult to conceal. While it's a bit beefy in girth, that helps spread the recoil impulse across a larger surface of your hand, making the recoil impulse feel even softer than thinner guns would offer. Eleven rounds of .45acp in such a wonderful shooting gun is very nice indeed when you want a smaller .45. I wouldn't bother with a G36. I can easily conceal a G30.

    +1 on the G30... I can carry anything I want, I have quite a few choices... I choose the G30 because they are cheep, They work and I don't whine too much about the holster wear or if I bang it on a car door or bump it into something....

    If you have a G-30, You can have a couple G21 high caps in a mag holder, For just in case the party goes into overtime....:D
