Over the last few days I was able to get hands on and shoot pretty much the majority of the 9x19 Glocks. After shooting them I decided on 2 . A 43x followed me home today and when the LGS gets a G17 Gen 5 MOS they'll let me know and I'll pick that one up as well. I have no plans to put any optic on it now but in the future who knows. I really liked the G17 more than I expected. I also liked the grip and compact size of the 43x as did my wife. So when she gave the nod I could grab 2 I did so before she could change my mind!! Hoping to get out and run a few hundred rounds through the new 43x over the weekend.

The only problem i see with them, is their strong appetite to feed them! They like LOTS of ammo!

My 43X actually tried to bite the salesman as it followed me out to my truck. I dont know why it tried to bite him, other than the fact it sure ate alotta brass food when we got home. I think these gunshops are trying to starve the poor little things. WTH!!! FEED`EM damn it!!!

My LGS doesn’t have the 43x or 48 for rent yet, but after holding both I really felt that unloaded the 43x was fantastic. That may change once loaded but I’m sure either a 43x or 48 will be mine come next week.
As always, i was skeptical myself at first, because i have no way to test fire before buying, but took the chance anyway buying the 43X, and now i want the 48 too...lol. If you buy one, you wont be disappointed. Actually i`m VERY impressed with mine. It has not had a hiccup, it just shoots everything i feed it, and the ejection pattern is, spectacular! The gun is just plain consistent! Not to mention, very accurate, for me!

Congrats! Two great guns. I just got back from the gun store and handled a 43x and Sig P365 for the first time. I really like the 43x, and one is in my future.

The gun manufacturers should give the guns for free and just charge for brass the way these guys eat ammo. :flag:

Congrats on the 43X. I finally got around to shoot my 43X, 48 and 26 back to back and found out that the 43X will be my EDC as soon as I find a holster and mag holster for it..

I’ve been using a Vedder Lighttuck for my G36 and G30SF and have another plus the mag carrier coming for the G43x. I was using Theis Hybrids since 2008 and the Vedder Holsters have shelved all of my Theis Gear. Their belts are good too.
