    I'm on my way to the show tomorrow and will have to stop by to check it out as well. Apparently there is a new XDs 9mm as well...

    Speaking of the XDs 9.... Would you mind smacking the glock reps upside the head for me and asking about a single stack series in 9 or 40? Please.

    Glock had/has 36, but I wonder why it was never popular. Single stack 45acp.

    Because it fails at being small in the grip. It's also not a true single stack. The G30 is only slightly fatter - and crams in 4 more rounds. If you want a true slim, polymer 6 round gun - the Kahr P45 or CW45 is smaller in every dimension than the G36.

    Also, owners of the G30 and 36 have been swapping slides for years. There was a huge thread started years ago on Glock Talk about this. The G30s is simply Glock recognizing that this works, and doing it from the factory now. The big advantage, that folks on GT found, was that this gun will fit most holsters made for a Glock 19. You get a double stack .45 with a slimmer slide than the normal G30 or 30SF offers.

    Even Wiki doesn't like the G30S!

    Eeeeh - it's a Glock 30 frame with a Glock 36 slide. I wouldn't call it "slimline". You can't call Glock's double stack 45/10mm frame "slim" unless you think Rosie O'Donnell is "slim" too. The Glocks are still way more attractive.
