Smaller one, otherwise I'd go with a standard sized 19

HH6 had one that I bought for her- she couldn't keep her wrists tight enough so it constantly was jamming.

My older daughter came into town and tried it- she now owns it and loves it.

My wife has a 43 - I like it but dont carry one. She liked it but preferred the 26. Now she has an EZ-380 that she has fallen in love with.






...who makes good carry holsters that work with a TLR-6 ??

I have a 43 that is my EDC gun in warmer months.

Fiber optic sights

Taran Tactical +2 on the mag in the gun and on the spare mag

3.5 # connector

shoots really well. never prints.

Recently I've been running a Threaded barrel on it. The extra barrel length makes it shoot a little better and doesn't do anything for the conceal-ability.

For those who like the 43x, shield arms makes a 15rd flush mag for that gun.

Shameless plug for Litepath! I have loved everything he made and he has the ability to make most combinations work.

I have one and run Tango Down +2 pads that don't print with most t-shirt/shorts combos. some thin T-shirts might print the +2s, but my big hands do ok with the OEM extended, pinkie rest pad. and it doesn't need a trigger guard undercut.

26s never fit my hand well.

if you like your fiber sights, cool. a buddy turned me onto these and they work really well at all ranges quickly, with my tiring eyes. they're on my Glocks, because they work and for continuity.

I carry a Glock 43 pretty regularly.

I use the Vickers +2 extensions on the mags.

It is much flatter than other small pistols like the S&W 642 that I like to carry; where the revolver cylinder tends to be fatter in the middle. But does have a bit more grip to conceal. I've use the flush 6 round mags for the gun and then have a +2 on the spare depending on what I'm wearing. Without the +2, pinky hangs way off the grip.

Yup! I have the TLR6 mounted to it; I carry it in a GCode Incog Shadow built for the Glock 43 + TLR6.

I have thought about switching to a 43x or 48. That seems to be the direction the single stack platform is headed.

These look really slick. No idea how they'd work for me in practice, but aligning a point with another point seems very intuitive.

Half my problem too; I still have dadgum eagle eyes, when they finally focus, but they're noticeably slower to focus. Even for things like shooting a basketball, focusing my eyes is now slow enough to be a conscious thing VS reflexive.

Do wish they had both tritium and fiber. Mainly for sunny days at the cabin.

Thanks Steve and Litepath for the heads up on the TLR-6 and aftermarket rail. I learned something new today.

I really don't like the trigger on the 43 but that accessory might change my mind.

I have one. I used to carry it in my CVMA vest. Now I carry my G 36. The 43 is nice, but currently on loan to a Ranger Buddy's wife.

Ok... Why get a .380 when it is practically the same size as the 9mm platform?

The 9mm is WAY more effective at poking holes in people and there are much better ammo choices and a wider variety of options for defensive carry. Another consideration is the cost of training ammo as well.
