    Don't hate. This Kool-Aid is tasty.

    Glad they finally made one, but I am still a fan of the 26.

    More bullets is mo' better. :s0133:

    Interesting gun. I don't know if I'd buy one, but I'd love to try one out sometime.

    I'm more than happy with my shield and see no reason to replace it, but any new gun released its a good thing! I wouldn't mind taking one for a spin either.

    So non GSSF price would be $100.00+ more, I'm guessing?

    I have a G19 and it's my EDC. However, being a Glockaholic, I have to check out all the new models :)
    The G43 might be great as a BUG or for summer carry.

    I have a 29 which I like, and the Warden has a slightly modified 17 and a 42. She likes them and her several other makes too, but her main objection to her 42 is round capacity. We might look at a 43, but I don't expect to own one.

    This eould be nice for summer carry since the glock 26 is a little wide, but the reason I like the G26 is because it's a sub frame easily concealable and if need be the G17 back up mag is comforting. You lose that high cap mag back with this.
    I'm keep with the G26.
    Of course if they made a extended mag it would be better, but I like that all my parts for the most part are interchangable. 26, 17, and 34

    Held the 42 last night and was far from impressed. Ended up with a Sig 238 I was impressed with. All the 42 and 43 is to me is Glock finally catching up with the times. Took them long enough.

    Yes! I love my 23 and the extended 22 and 17 mags I have for it and the 9mm conversion with it.. The single stack Glocks do nothing for me. If I want something that small there are so many better options in my novice opinion.

    You are far from the only one. Though I have always preferred the 23 with a 200 dollar 9 barrel and 19 and 17 mags.

    The gun to carry when you're not carrying a gun...

    Might get one when "normal guy on the street" prices are similar to a Shield.

    I'll give them some time to work out any kinks, but I see no reason I wouldn't buy one.
