This thread is a Glock 42 vs Glock 43 Ballistic test (not a general caliber test). I chose to put it in General Glocking so people can see the difference between a G42 and G43 in gel tested back to back with different popular ammunition and make their best educated decisions on what trade offs they are willing to make.
So I can't say I wasn't nervous as hell lol.
I watched a few youtube vids, bought a wood burner, did some fooling around on a pmag, and then went for it.
First thing I did was do an under cut on the trigger guard. Next was sanding down the texture and finger bumps. The rest is history, I don't think it looks to horrible for my first attempt lol.
It feels great in the hands!!
Hi, just joined up, made the requisite intro thread in the proper place . I'm not finding anything promising on Google so I just wanted to ask those of you in the know if you are aware of anyone that makes, or is planning to make, high-capacity magazines for my new G43? I am aware of the Taran +1 and +2 grip extenders (as well as the others made my Pierce, Lone Wolf et al) and am planning to grab some tomorrow, but what I really want is a 10/15/20/whatever-round magazine for when concealing isn't a priority and too many punkass milk jugs and porcelain tiles are gettin' all up in mah biz, yo' (did I use the vernacular right? ). I'm holding my gun to the side and everything!
OK, so I have been very spoiled by my 19, perfectly spoiled. I shoot it reasonably well and can do lots of range time without an issue. The 43, while snappy, has been tamed and for close up work, it would do the job. The problem: The stinker tears up my trigger finger. I am only good for 25 rounds and then I switch to something else to shoot. It has less than 500 rounds through it. Suggestions, aside from building a callous?
Currently I carry both 42 and 43 in kydex IWB wearing suspenders and has worked, anybody have any experience with this type of carry?
I also am testing belly band carry, have one cheap band that works, but do not like the fabric holster and it's not a really good fit for the GLOCKs.
Just ordered a Crossbreed belly band with adjustable kydex holster and also a Ramora tuckable holsters (Memorial day sales was basic reason for both). May be a bit costly, but I see a weekly use for a tuckable and general use for the Crossbreed.
