I don't like lights or lasers on a carry gun.
For home defense a tactical light is nice.
If it's a one gun for everything?
Then a rails makes sense.
I've got multiple guns.

Can't post pictures, but I don't personally like the rail. To me, they just don't look nice & I have NO intention of hanging anything under my gun.

FrankI don't know anyone that owns a Glock because it looks nice. Glock makes some of the ugliest pistols out there. I bought and carry my Glocks because they are durable, reliable, and priced lower than many comparable pistols. On a side note, My G30 has a rail I have never used.

Hey do you have a picture of your ? I have always wanted to see a G30 frame with a G36 slide. Don't they call it the G30 "hybrid" ?

I have a Generation 3 with the rail. It's my nightstand gun with a TLR1 attached. My 2nd Gen non-railed G23 had been my LEO duty weapon. I would like to have the option to attach a light to the G23 if needed.

I understand!

Well it kinda grew on me after a thousand rounds or so with NO malfunctions, & in all kind of weather, I really think it's good looking. It was also carried into some unsavory, scary, places. I think it's good looking.:whistling:

Rail because that way you'll always have the weapon light option. Without it you don't. I do agree though that for a CCW gun, carrying with the added bulk of an attached light is another thing to overcome. In the winter, maybe if you're dedicated. And even then you'll have to take your jacket off at some point. But in the summer...

I don't care either way on the G30. For me, the gun is too small for a light. However, the larger G21 seems more accommodating for a light.

Hey thanks for that picture . Is the point of the hybrid to have a slim slide and a frame that accepts other Glock mags ?

My main CCW gun was a G30 no rail up until several months ago. For no particular reason, I switched to a new G23 I bought.

I had a railed G29, so I swapped receivers to end up with a railed G30. I threw a TLR3 light on the railed G30, and it is now my nightstand gun. If I ever wake up and need to grab a gun, I feel good that I will be grabbing the pistol I carried for years.

yes,the same mags,but i carry it with the 9round(10 total) the slide on the 30 is like a friggin stick-o-butter.the hybrid is not top heavy,the 45 is a low press. round,i guess the only reason glock made it as thick as a g20(hi-press) is because the 21 came right after.it didnt have to be that thick,both slides measure spot on internally.:wavey:

Not all of my Glocks have rails and the ones that do never have anything mounted to the rails. IMO they are unnecessary.
