Ideal carry: g30 or colt officer?

I dont usually carry firearm. Nowadays, i realized that carrying a concealed firearm is an advantage should the unexpected scenario happens. I'm planning to acquire a good defensive pistol and my choice of caliber of course is the .45acp for obvious reasons. Now, for the pistol choice i'm torn between G30 and Colt Officer (or any 1911 officer model). Give me your valuable advice mga bro. Thanks in advance! ;Q

If you can't decide on what to get, buy both! ;f Seriously, you might want to try both pistols and pick the best under the following criteria (that I have always been following):

1. Is it reliable with most ammo?
2. Is the pistol concealable with my (body)size?
3. Am I comfortable with cock and locked or double action carry?
4. Which pistol do I shoot better, double action or single action?
5. Are aftermarket parts readily available in the area where I live?
6. Is weight a factor when carrying a pistol everyday for long
periods?
7. If you have an immediate family member that carry a pistol, what
caliber and brand is the pistol? Having the same equipment is ad-
vantageous to you since you could share mags and ammo.

I've tried the Colt Officer's model, and the recoil is rather stout. I prefer the Commander over the Officer's. Honestly, I haven't tried the G30 yet. Others say they're good and quite accurate.

carry a glock30 with xs 24/7 big dot, very light to carry, recoil is easy to manage with standard loads and because of the sights, very fast inside 15 meters.

I have tried both G30 and Commander and G30 is more manageable and accurate (for me) in my experience. The down side with G30 is too thick for CCW. YMMV.

G36

If the g30 is too thick for your taste, then try to get a hold of a g36...you might fall in love with it :]

I agree with vega.

The choice is pretty much between a G30 and a Colt Commander (not a Colt Officer).

That's a hard choice (haha) since both are very desirable guns.

I know we are in a Glock forum but I would go with a Colt Commander -specially one that's been tuned by a gunsmith.

Very sweet.

Was Glock, by any chance, able to get rid of the bugs plagueing the G36?

I wasn't aware there were problems, what kind of plagues? Also, good thing to hear they also sell G36 back in the Phil.

I have these carry thoughts again these days and I'm also wondering.

Personally, the G30 is out kasi it's too thick for me. The compact 1911 is very ideal due to the thinness kaso I'm not too comfy having only 8-9 rounds. Lalo na ngayon bihira nang-hoholdup na mag isa lang. And I prefer on-body carry always (well,...as much as possible.)

I'm starting to feel really good thinking about a G26 or a Taurus Mil-Pro (kung di kaya nung budget.)

MCO,

Is the trigger action of the Mil-Pro comparable to the glocks?

How much does it retail for?

The G36 was mentioned once, I thought there was a major re-call like the G19 for their frame failure.

Is the g30 yung maliit na 45 na may extended mag were you make patong the pinky finger? Hirap iputok IMO

Kung mahilig ka talaga mag carry , get the Colt Lightweight Commander
Best of both , thin as a 1911 and light as a glock

Yup, there might not be a lot of data about G36s because, there' not much G36s compared to G19s out there. That's why Glock is heavily advertising G36 since its introduction in the market.

Sir RG, since .45 ACP is your choice, i'd say go for 1911 officer.

But if you ask me, my personal choice would be my g26 (plus an extra mag for g17.... )

But honestly, thats a HARD choice to make, parang si aida o si nora o si fe...;f

Regards

I've read about the phase 3 prob of the g19, I haven't experienced it yet with mine...well of course, have only shot 600+ rounds to date so im keeping my fingers crossed. ;f

With regards to the g36...i've read that a certain batch of em has probs wih the trigger...

g36 prob: http://<br /> http://www.thegunzone...36-recall.html

I think they were able to fix it by replacing the trigger bar etc.

it really boils down to comfortable u are with it(carrying it concealed) and how well you shoot it. dont take our word for it, shoot them both so youll have an ideal how they feel, both in recoil and in size.

I have a colt officer and a G27

I carry G27 because its much more lighter than colt officer and has 3more rounds compare to me colt...well its because its a .40 hicap and the colt is single .45

when I rapid fire my G27 most of the 9 rounds went to A section of the target while my Colt 6rounds, most of them went to outer space section...
;f

whatever you choose practice with it and get use to it so that when the time comes your ready for shooting the Bad guys butt ;a

Band of Glockers

My carry piece. Para-Ord P12.45. Haven't had any misfeeds or jams with it and I'm in the alpha's most of the time. A bit bulky but no complaints. ;f
