Count me in.
I'm pretty happy with my XDs 9, but I'm sure I'll check one out.
None of us commonfolk in Kalifornia. Actually the G40 is what I'd prefer... but that's not to be either.
I'll stay with my Walther PPS 40.
Or my G27.
I'll look at it pretty hard. I'd like a smaller single stack 9mm for concealed carry.
I might be tempted to put my favorite carry gun (PM9) on the market to fund the G43.....and I REALLY like my
I have no doubt that the Glock 43 is going to put some serious hurt to the other single stack 9mm manufacturers.
I would not sell my PM 9 for one, but I am probably gonna get a G43.
IME, Glock's corrosion resistance alone is reason enough to get one to replace the PM9 as a daily carry, especially on the bike or kayak.
Is crime in the states so bad that you need a gun in a kayak?!!
Just curious - is anyone allowed to carry a gun in the US or is it a state by state thing?
State by state. Have to be up on state reciprocity agreements. Some get Utah and or Florida licenses also to carry in more states besides what there home state allows.
Absolutely. I knew a guy who was gold panning along a remote river. He suddenly got the notion to look up and here comes a shady guy about 50 yards off sneaking up behind him. Looks down river and here is another shady individual sneaking on him. He looks up river, and there's a third. He stood, pulled his weapon, and explain loudly that he would hate to tell the deputy he had to drop all three of them because they made him so nervous. All three simultaneously turned on their heels and vacated the area.
The grip angle on a Glock doesn't really suit me--I'd be more apt to look at the XDs or the M&P Shield if I was in the market for a single stack 9. I can't fault the Glock in any other way though, they are great pistols...
I know it's supposed to be safe to, but I wouldn't want to CC a Glock in condition 1, which is really condition 0 since there is no thumb safety.
Been doing it every day for over 2 decades. A proper holster is key.
Would you concealed carry a small Smith or Colt revolver? No safety at all...Glocks do not discharge unless the trigger is pulled.
No, there are federal and State laws and regulations as to who may carry and where. Granted the federal laws are generally geared toward purchase and carry is generally a State issue.
I have a Glock for a beater gun, and they do make good beater guns, I mean you can beat on them and they'll take it. Personally, I prefer higher end weaponry.
