    If i were going to buy a compact glock in 45 acp, I'd go with a 30 sf. Only a slight size difference from the 36 and more capacity. Just my opinion. I have no experience with either pistol you inquired about but do like my 30.

    Kahr feels better, at least in my hand, but your mileage may vary.

    +1 on the G30, it can use the same mags as its bigger cousin, G21.

    You know I vote for the Kahr.

    The Glock is a great pistol, just not built up to the tolerances of the American made Kahr.

    That is a tough choice!

    I would give it to Kahr though. Partially based on the stainless option. (But everyone knows that stainless isn't really your thing... ;) )

    I vote Kahr. The CW has more desirable dimensions for CC. No finger grooves and more grip to hold. It looks better. And everyone knows “Thin is Sexy”. The only caveat is you may have to follow Kahr's break in procedure. And thats going to kill your resale value.:D

    Kahr, love the way the 45 feels in my hand and the overall quality...plus the CW line is very high value.

    Guess I'm the first vocal vote for the Glock, and I'm not even a "Glock guy". In fact up until I bought the 36, I hated every Austrian plast.... er "polymer" I'd ever shot. The 36 however fits my hand impeccably, points well, and actually handles recoil better than I expected, even from the snappy Hornaday TAP rounds I carry on a daily basis. I'm about 400 rounds into mine, and I've had exactly 1 FTE, on some Winchester White box that I suspect was loaded considerably lighter than the rest of the batch. So, apparently, the famed Glock reliability I keep hearing about is, so far at least, true.
    As far as concealability goes, the 36 pretty much disappears. I went with a Crossbreed supertuck, first one I'd ever bought, and I'll never buy a different IWB again. With it, the Glock conceals just as well as the J-frame I'd been carrying previous.
    My only real complaint is the factory sights, give me three dot sites any day over the dot and trough motif of the Glock.

    I voted G36 because A- I have one and like it B- I liked the feel of the G36 over the Kahr.... and most importantly, C- how else can you carry a grenade in a IWB holster? :laugh::laugh:

    You guys just couldn't keep your mouths shut could you. I had pretty much decided on the kahr and then you make me start reconsidering the G36 again. :D ;)

    Just never liked the way a Glock feels in my hand. Don't think you can go wrong with either though.
