    Glock Has Unveiled a Pistol Barely Larger Than the Palm of Your Hand

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Glock Has Unveiled a Pistol Barely Larger Than the Palm of Your Hand

    Not a new gun per-se, glock released the 43 back in April I believe.

    A good friend of mine has one and it's similar to my shield 9mm, just a little smaller. I personally find it a hard to shoot compared to my shield

    If you give the finger too often, that could be a problem.

    If you ever saw my hands, you would realize that a full sized 1911 was only "slightly larger" than the palm of my hand.

    I tried several models before settling on a medium frame Sig Sauer P-250 for my primary carry weapon. Its heavy and a bit bulky but with half a thumb and a little finger that does not bend all the way on my shooting hand I was not that confident I could maintain a firm enough grip on anything smaller. I can release the slide and magazine on the Sig one handed if necessary.

    In Nam my constant companion in base camp (shower, shitter, chow line, bunk) was a Smith and Wesson Chief's Special Revolver - 2 inch barrel, 5 round cylinder. I left it with my replacement and recently thought about getting another for a back-up, more for nostalgia than efficiency.

    I like Glocks even though I don't own one. My brothers, son and nephews all shoot/carry Glocks and they are a fine pistol. I have a couple of .380s that are super compact, and while they serve a purpose, that of easy concealment, they are not the funnest thing to shoot, but when you're shooting for the preservation of your life I would guess that is not fun by definition. In a 9mm I would think it would be even less fun, and I'm not terribly recoil sensitive. It's just something about only having two fingers, trigger finger and middle finger, and a thumb gripping the pistol.

    This one is interesting. Though I've been wanting a S&W M&P Shield .40 once I get to a state that doesn't have registration laws so I can buy one.

    I have shot both the G43 and i own a shield in 9mm and have put over well over 4k rounds thru it.. I have also shot the shield in .40 a good bit. All three are good guns, the G43 for me is a little too small in my hands. It also does not have near the recoil control that the shield does. In my opinion .40 is a little too much round for the shield frame. It shoots 9mm really nicely but 40 is harder to control, it has a ton of recoil. My .45 shoots softer than the shield 40 does. If i was going to buy a non full framed .40 it would be the M&P compact .40 or a G23.

    Thanks for the input, jb. How does the G23 compare size-wise to the Shield? I've held the Shield .40 and liked the size of it. I want something small and light for easy concealed carry but with enough stopping power for an animal if I'm out camping. I know it's not gonna drop something big like a bear.

    Another one I want eventually is the S&W .50 revolver (hand cannon). A friend has one and it's magnificent.
