Are there any ballistic gel tests out there of rounds fired from the Glock 30? Particularly interested in the Federal Tactical HST 230gr +P.

Asked and answered. Stumbled on semi-accidentally. Not a G30, but even shorter barrel.

I still have quite a few test rounds left so I may revisit with the G36 at some point.

The G36 sounds like an interesting pistol.

A bit too low mag capacity for my taste.

I'm a little torn between the G30 and the G23. If I had to deal with a mag capacity restriction, the G30 would win, otherwise I think I'm leaning to the 23

I just realized that was your site. I guess I'm a little slow on the uptake.

I don't know if I'd consider anything in .45 a mousegun, but I like the test you did.

True. the G36 is about as thick as a G23.

I stumbled onto a Youtube video about the G30. It did a nice side by side size comparison to the G19 (or 23. Forgot which, but for size, they're interchangable.) By eye, it's very close in length and width to the 30, and the 30 is a smidge thicker.

or more .45 ACP cartridges. I have forgotten. :cool:
