Default New Concealed Carry Firearm

Bought a Glock 43 today. The first Glock I have owned. I own Sigs, S&W, Colt, Taurus, Beretta, and Kimber. Been reading about the 43 and decided to pull the trigger. Not the most beautiful gun but well build and has a good reputation for being dependable. Got a Crossbreed inside the waistband holster to go with it. Have my father-n-law with me so we picked up two cases of 9mm "one for each of us", a case of .380 for him, and a few boexs of assorted ammo for stocking up.

I bought a Glock 42 last week. Awesome gun, sure you'll love the 43.

I have heard good things about the 42 and 43.

I am guessing I will stick with my 26 as a carry for now.

My 26 also has a good history being the only handgun that survived the robbery and was returned to me.

(Note to other crackhead, AWOL, deserter soldiers: Glocks have a triple-trigger safety. When you shoot yourself in the leg, those guys in suits in your recovery room are called detectives. Safety note to at least learn the gun you have stolen.)

I am glad that my "Baby Glock" was returned, though. 42 and 43 are flatter, but a bit bigger than my 26?

Dang good price on a G43. That's getting in the blue label range with tax.
