Any of you using the 36 as your primary CC? If not is there a better choice? I need no CC permit here so I'm looking for a new toy that's reliable. Thanks Guy's

Don't Tread on Me!! I always double tap!

I prefer the G30.  I CCW this daily.

A little bigger but not enough to hinder concealability and you are able to carry 10+1rds.

I tend to carry a 36 because of it's size, as "carry" is frowned upon where I live. I prefer the 30 because of capacity, however, I have  left and right comp-tac holsters and often will carry 2-36's. Or a 30 as primary and a 36 on the left as a back-up.

It's a great gun, but if you have larger hand I would recomend having (or doing) some doctor work done with a file on the trigger guard right where the middle finger's (of the primary hand) second knuckle meets it. If you plan on practicing with it, which should go without saying, that trigger guard edge will start to eat your finger after 50 rounds, or so.

Thanks Guys, I looked at both the 30 & 36 and can get both for the same price NIB $525 is that around the range they go for or can you get them cheaper? Awesome Pic and I thank you for responding, as I've had no experience with the pistol. One last thing have you ever tried that Laser Max System that I see advertised?

$525 is on par with my neck of the woods... Ususally in shops around me they run $550 for anything in 10 and 45 while the 9mm, 357 Sig, and 40s hang @ $500.

Never used a laser on a pistol but IIRC the LaserMax is the one that replaces the guid rod?  If so, that seems like the best route if a laser is on your "must have" list.  Someone with actual field use will probably speak up though.

Take care.

$525 isn't bad.  I have seen them for $495 in my neck of the woods.  I paid close to $600 for my G30 when I bought it.  That was back when they just hit the market so the price was higher.

The Lasermax system is good if you want a laser for your Glock.  I do not have one but my friend does and he likes it.  The only thing I didn't like was that the laser pulses/flickers instead of just a solid dot.

I had a laser max on my  G32. The reason it pulsates is to save battery life. one reason i went back to  a guide rod is    if your battery cap (rear of the laser max) comes loose while firing  it will jam your slide.  Failure to fire = failure to survive.  But that's just me.

Without bursting anyones bubble here....

Lasers belong in labritories and guidance systems, not on personal defense handguns.

A) They will not stay zeroed after a few shots.
B) They require batteries, which WILL fail when you need them most.
C) They help you break all of your training basics by having you ignore the front sight.
D) They do not work in bright daylight.

Spend a weekend with Farnam, Smith, Awerbuck, Suarez, Ayoob, Spaulding, etc... and you won't need a laser, you'll know how to shoot.

Your money would be better spent on training.

Just an opinion, not a rant.
