I'm selling my .40 because quite frankly I dont like the recoil of the round. Not that its rough, I just dont like the snappiness. So I'm getting a .45
Here's my short list:
XD Compact 45
Glock 30SF or Gen 4 30
All but the HK are anywhere from $500-$600, with the HK being 2x that. Seeing that it would be used in a life or death situation, the HK price isn't really a big deal breaker.
I held a Glock 30 earlier today and I hated it. Fingers didnt really line up with the grooves and it really does feel like holding a 2x4. I know a guy out near me that has a G30SF that he said I could shoot, I just gotta find ammo for it
I have big hands so the tiny guns like G36 and XDs are a no-go, I want my pinky to have a place.
