I am in the process of getting my concealed carry permit and am considering the purchase of a Glock 43.

Does any one have any insight about this weapon?
Thanks. ~JOE~

I don't have any first hand knowledge of a 43 but Glock makes a fine gun. A gun you should look at before you make your decision is a S&W Shield. I own one and so do a couple of friends and everybody seems to really like them. I got mine on sale a month or so back from Kentucky Gun Co for $329 with free shipping. It has similar dimensions to the 43. I know you did not ask about others but I figure I would give my $.02

G43 is a great shooting gun for its size. But unless you have small hands, the G26 will probably fit your grip better.

The size difference between the 43 and the 26 is small, and the 26 has more capacity.
I REALLY wanted the 43 until I got to compare it to the 26 side-by-side.

I have the 43. I like it. Its light and fits into my shorts front pocket well. I also like the way it shoots. You get 4 more rounds with the 26 but it is a little wider because the magazine is double stacked and a little heavier. Try them both out. See which one you like. Also in my opinion, there are so many accessories and holsters etc for Glocks.

Thanks for all the replies. I will check out the Glock and some others as well. My son is a police officer and recommended the Glock. He said that it is his next purchase.

Like said, try them out. I know a lot of folks that can't stand the way a Glock feels. I like them. I prefer my 23 to any of them. Small enough, but not too small.
