hey Pard. I have had a G30 for a very long time. Great shooting gun, but to chuncky for my taste, and I am used to a M1911 and prefer that.
That being said. I got a G36 some years back, and have about 1400 rds through it with my hand loads and factory loads and all kinds of fmj and jhp's, and not one single malfunction of any kind. Even hand loading them with 230gr XTP's at over 900fps. No problems and all stock except for the 3.5# connector. (a Glock part).
Like you, I like more horse power. I carry the G36 actually more now than I do my M1911 all steel. I have a 9mm but rarely carry it. They do the job, but I like making bigger holes.
Good luck !
