    I have multiple Glock pistols but I had a GSSF coupon burning a hole in my pocket. I had been considering a g-5 26 or a 43X. Normally during the summer months I conceal carry daily and usually pocket carry a custom Ruger LCP in a Kydex holster. I usually rotate that with a Ruger LC9s or a g-5 19 when I travel in more dangerous areas. Finally got serious a few weeks ago and checked with my lgs , Ed’s Public safety...sold out with an expected shipment in July. On a whim, I stopped by there today and they had just gotten in a small shipment and were down to two. Needless to say, I snatched one and had them install the Ameriglo FAT sights. The gun fits my hand perfectly and the sights look great (I have older eyes). Now to the range ASAP. PS, the store was packed which is a good sign. Lots of folks utilizing their 2nd Amendment rights!

    Pics!

    This is on my radar. Picked up a SW M&P Shield for the wifey. I really like the way it fit my hand compared to my 43. I don't like the goofy little mag lever for field stripping and I love that a glock can be stripped completely with little effort.

    While Ed’s is pretty low on my list of places to buy BL Glocks, the 43X is pretty high on the wishlist. Congrats!

    Congratulations.

    Funny how things aren’t on your radar and then they are. I ignored them for a long time, but the 43/43X might snag me yet.

    I also want the 43X, but have to wait because I want the "rail & black slide" version. My LGS hasn't seen any yet, but they are available in Europe. Glock-G43X-G48-Rail-Colore-09.jpg

    I love mine. you chose well. it is a remarkably handy gun that carries like a dream, yet handles, and shoots, like a bigger gun.
