This afternoon Chris and I shot the new Glock 30S chambered in .45 ACP. The slimmer profile is nice, but other than that it is a Glock and it performed well, just as you would expect from a Glock. The recoil was not excessive. I have shot full-sized .45 which had more (perceived) recoil. If you want a subcompact .45, you should take a look at the the Glock 30SF.
