Giving you the ballistic quality of the big bore .45 ACP in a concealed carry gun, the G30 .45 ACP Small Frame Subcompact Pistol is a popular choice of plainclothes policemen and protection personnel.

The Safe Action trigger system teams a trigger safety, trigger bar, and firing pin lock that automatically deactivate one after another as the trigger engages. GLOCK barrels feature rounded interior profiles for easier cleaning and longer lasting precision. Loaded chamber indicator. Double action. Black finish. Fixed sights. Weight: 23.99 oz.

Not much beats the stopping power of a 45 ACP for a back up or carry weapon. Mix that with 9 or 10 plus one rounds of said ammo, in weapon that is very reliable, you have one heck of a back up or carry weapon. This the Glock 30.
My first Law Enforecment job allowed the use of 45 ACP, 40 S&W or 9mm. I chose the 45 ACP in a Glock 21. I wanted to have a quality back up weapon as well. I needed to have my back up weapon, large enough to handle the 45 ACP round and small enough to conceal. It also had to use my duty magazines as well. The Glock 30 fit all of these. Being able to use your duty magazines in your back up weapon is very comforting if a weapon maufunction occurs.
The Glock 30 comes with the flush mounted 9 round mags, but I would suggest upgrading and going with the plus 1 extentions. They come with a pinky extention allowing for better control of the weapon and give you 1 additional round to carry. 11 rounds in a small compact, concealable weapon is a big hit. The old 1911 single stack full size weapons only carried 7 to 8 plus 1, so this is a major upgrade. The weapon is very heavy compared to most carry weapons though. If you go with an inside the waistband holster, most quality holsters will do just fine. But due to the weight of this weapon, if you choose to go with an ankle holster, find one that laces up with your boot. Do not scrimp on quality to save a few dollars. The velcro models will come loose in a foot pursuit and your expensive weapon has now fallen into the hands of whom ever has found it.
I have owned several models of Glock from one time to another. The Glock 30 will be one of the few models that I will never part with. Quailty, reliability, accuracy and all around greatness of this weapon is something that doesnt come along to often.
