I recently bought a g42 used and love it. I now take it with me everywhere. It’s the perfect size and weight and very easy to carry iwb and moderately easy to pocket. It shoots great and very easy to control. The g43 doesn’t look much bigger and I would get a much more powerful round. Then when I start looking around the hellcat and p365 are smaller and have better capacity. Also I already have a shield, but my wife likes it and if it will get her into shooting I’ll gladly give it to her! So I’m at a wall with which subcompact 9mm to buy, or even if to buy one. I do really love the g42, but also would like a 9 too. Thanks all.
