I grew up with guns in the house. I had my first .22 when I was 8 years old, but we didn’t shoot a whole lot. My father was a Marine Officer and he understood the importance of firearm ownership but he wasn’t a gun guy. He didn’t have any tactical rifles or pistols, not that he was against them...

I know there have been posts about like or dislike. In this thread, it's purely about reliability. If you own a G43, how many rounds through it? How many failures? If failures, are they particular to a specific ammo?
I have always wanted one, possibly because its a bit on the rare side or maybe just because its the longest 9 Glock makes.
Never had one in my hands but my thoughts were it would be fun, sort of like my 7"bbl .22 pistol?
I would use it just for fun target shooting.
17L or maybe a 34 would be more reasonable?
I'm considering switching to a G43 from a Shield 45 and wanted to get some owners opinions. I like the Shield 45 but am looking for something smaller and lighter in 9mm.
I have no problem with the Shield 45 recoil and it's accurate...
I carry a G26 when possible. If I can, I also have 2 extra mags on the belt. Main carry ammo is Geco JHP 115gr.
But I've been toying with the thought of having the 3rd mag filled with FMJ. Extra penetration? Silly idea? Your takes?
I am currently contemplating swapping out my G26 which I POCKET carry vs a G42 for the same thing. I also currently have a Kel Tec P3AT which was my pocket carry gun until I got the G26.
** Pocket carry is my preferred carry method for where I live (So. Fla) and how I dress (shorts, even at work just about ALL year round, even at work). I am WELL aware of it's limitations and issues - it just simply "works" better for "ME", and I do NOT wish to debate it as an issue, only the subject head - thanks ahead of time. **
