Well, the gun show was in town this weekend, so I scraped some money together and checked it out. I went with intention of finding a deal on an old K-Frame, but was disappointed with a poor selection and absurd prices. It seems folks were unreasonably proud of most of what was there...even the junky stuff. However, I did get to check out some kit I hadn't had a chance to see in person as yet.
The Glock 43 is a beautiful little piece. It's purposeful and nicely built; neither too large nor too small. I was very impressed until I handled it back to back with a G-26. For the big catcher's mitts I call hands, the G-26 is a better fit. In a perfect world, I'd buy both...but times being as they are, I have to show restraint.
I also got to handle a Kel-Tec Sub2000 Gen 2. I know that K-T is sort've looked upon as a second-tier outfit, but this sub-rifle is slick. Build quality is much improved and thoughtful features were incorporated into the redesign. The trigger pull is a little stiff, but apart from that it seems to be a screaming bargain at $500. If I had the factory's ear, I'd recommend that it be chambered in .357 Sig. Apart from that, it's the best thing going for around the farm or in the truck. I've already put $200 in a jelly jar towards one...
I agree...I've attended a few show myself recently...the G43 is nice but when I compare with my usual carry (G26) I'll stick with what I have.
There are a lot of crazy prices,I don't get all the fascination some people have with those tiny SIGS (238 & 938)...a rainbow slide..really.?
