Lol, did you come to the conclusion that you don't like it after buying it or are you just not a glock guy but wanted to check it out?

I have several items you may not like. Would you like to buy them?
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 3:31:49 PM EST
OK.

Is this a new thing? Buy something you don't like hoping it may grow on you? It usually works just opposite, but hey, it's your nickle.

Got a 19 and love it. The 43 fits the hand like crap, the trigger isnt all that good, the 2nd shot isnt all that quick. I shot a few different ones and they were the same.

I bought it cause theres a trade off between concealability/hitting power. Im not a fan of the .380. ANY Glock is a marvel of simplicity and engineering. Its far from a perfect carry gun but its "good" enough.

Honestly I had a chance to buy a Kahr at a great price, slightly used, and I regret not taking it not. Be that as it may I needed a subcompact, while not breaking the bank, so I bought the Glock. Ive always been a believer in a good shooter should be able to work around the limitations of any gun. So thats why.

I have a Kahr PM9 and while it does have a sweet trigger, I'll take the 43 all day.

If you were closer, I would trade you.

Drop a Ghost connector in the 43.
It won't be the same weapon.

My wife hates Glocks. Even the 19 is too big for her little hands. (They recoil through her thumb joint--she's basically holding the side of the gun in order to get her finder on the trigger.) The trigger is rough compared to a PPQ, VP9, or a custom CZ-75/85 trigger.

I got a Glock 43 which she looked at askance and with distaste.

Then she held it and went "oooh" with a smile. The nice sharp Dawson sights brightened the smile.

The single stack actually fits her hands. The trigger is consistent and adequate. Now, we just need to get her paper submitted to Nature, so she has time to go to the range and try it.

You need to back off some of the fiber in your diet man.

There are compromises/trade offs with every gun made. Common sense says you pick the one that checks off the most items on a mental "meets these needs" list that applies to YOU.
This doesn't mean you necessarily "like" the guns based on first impression or looks.......but a rational person will accept that it should at least be tried for the role because it DOES appear to meet your needs.
The beauty of it all is, that (for most areas) this is still a free country.... so if you don't like it, it's easy enough to sell it and on to the next one.
I buy, sell, trade guns like a kid does baseball cards....if I like it, it stays, if not, it goes away and I try something else. Many of the guns I try I don't particularly care for even before hand.... but I try them anyways so then I will KNOW from personal experience why it may be the new rage or a piece of crap..............instead of sounding like many of the ignorant guys that say "I've never shot one.... but I can't stand that thing."

Shot my Glock 43 again today, I really like mine and it is definitely a keeper. I also have a Glock 42 which I still carry but I'm glad I don't have to choose one as I like them both.
