Been carrying a 43 for a few years now. Added a clip that attached to the backplate. Works great during the warmer months or if Iím going for a run.

That's what I have on my G17 actually. I'm a fan, but...I feel like I'd get better precision, quicker, if it was point on point VS flat on flat, if that makes sense. Those speed sights look really solid for that, but I'm more likely to do significant shooting during the day, outdoors, than at night - so the fiber is a big win. Hell if they were fiber I'd just dab the corners of the FS with glowy ink.

I saw those clips advertised and wondered how well they work.

I've had zero issues with it, even put one on my M&P Shield. The clip is very sturdy and holds the firearm tight to whatever you slide it onto.

If you don't smell ozone, the radiation won't kill you before next week.

I've seen that justified in two ways:

1 = women with weaker wrists want a weapon with less recoil while also wanting a lightweight weapon that will work better for CCW with women's non-winter fashions;

2 = lower recoil on the same size weapon means faster and more accurate follow-on shots.

Your own mileage may vary and those reasons may not make sense to you, but they seem to make sense to others.
