    I know, I know... I am a diehard DA/SA guy... But, since the Glock 48 came out, it has caught my eye. And, I was impressed with the thinner width of the gun every time I held one. After buying that Beretta APX last June, striker fired guns sorta caught my attention again. NO, I haven't lost my mind and given up DA/SA - but, I'm willing to try striker fired guns again...

    But, I didn't wanna buy the G48 without trying one first. I've bought too many guns over the years, and then regretted buying the gun after the first range trip... Well, my local range finally got one to rent, and I tried it out on Saturday. I was pretty impressed. I actually sold a gun over the weekend to cover the cost (basically, I broke even - money is tight for me right now, but I could pull that off), and I had the shop order me one.

    I wanted one with the Ameriglo night sights, so I had to get one ordered. The night sights are almost identical to what I had installed on my APX.

    Anyway, the gun is very accurate. I like the way it shoots, and it fits my hands better than the double stack G19. What I like it that while it is thinner, it's not TOO thin. The Shield and the XDe seem almost TOO thin. But, the width of the G48 fits my hands just perfect. I only added a Hogue Jr grip to it, because I like rubber grips on most of my guns.

    Congrats! I like the G48 quite a bit. Even though when it was released, I rolled my eyes.

    Isn’t someone coming out with a 15 rd mag for those?
    If so I’d become very interested in one!

    Yes, they are out there, but sold out. I believe ya gotta change the mag release to a metal one, however - as those mags are all metal.

    For now, I am satisfied with 10+1. I don't have any plans to change out the mag release and get the 15 rounders. It is cool, though

    Have not tried one, but curious about them. May go see if the indoor range near me has one in the rental case.

    Glad you are happy with yours. What gun did you sell?

    I sold an Hk P2000sk.

    I have a P2000 that I have carried daily for 5 years. The sk version usually just sits in the safe. Now that I got a Shield again - which is thinner, I felt that I likely would never use the sk.

    On the hip, they printed about the same, so I just carried the larger P2000.
