Between my husband and myself, we own 4 glock pistols, one g43, 2 g19s, and whatever the glock 45 semiauto. I’m a petit female and for my first concealed weapon I chose the g43 because of its reliability and how simple it was to shoot. It was the more expensive option from the other 9mms available to me but it fit me and my needs better than the rest. I’ve had it now for about two years and have probably run +500 rounds through it with absolutely no issues at all. I did go back and purchase a glock 19 for its extra ammo capability for home defense and absolutely love it. It is bigger than the 43 and I’m short framed, and so it is probably not a good choice for me for concealment but it is great otherwise. I would not part with either of them. My husband loved my 19 and was so jealous of it that I bought him one too for his birthday. You cannot go wrong with the g19 or the g43. I would not suggest getting the aftermarket mag extenders for the 43 because it makes the slide too difficult to rack back, at least it did for me.So, I’m a Glock guy. I really like the two I have, but I have a question. Actually, it’s been asked before but lots of models have been introduced.
In choosing an every day carry, my first criterion is that it will shoot and cycle every. Time. I. Pull. The. Trigger. No jams. No misfeeds. No stovepipes. No light primer hits. Just bang and cycle another live round into battery. After that, I have to be able to shoot it- it has to be accurate enough and I have to be able to be accurate enough with it. For me the G43 (for sub compact) and G30s (for compact) do just that.
1) my son doesn’t like my G43,
2) wants a .45,
3) I don’t want him to get an XDs,
4) wants sub compact or as close as he can get,
5) and he doesn’t like the S&W.
But he’s heard that the G36 is the least ‘reliable’ of the Glocks. Any truth to this? Suggestions?
