    Nice setups Dave. Have you functioned fired yet? Bummer that the 10 rounder won't work in the 43, I was planning on getting some for spare carry. Thanks for the intel and saving me some money.

    I agree about the barrel length. But this above is incorrect. It is the 19m, not 19x or g45, that the FBI, Marines and several other entities are getting. I thnk the Army had a stake in the 19x for it's MP's and not sure how that works with the sig 320 which the Army also chose.

    Did some more "Glock Legos" and made some observations

    G19LS has to happen :)

    G26 super long slide not so much

    My old DB9 was Much smaller than the G43.
    same 6 round mags, much thinner and smaller over all, actual stainless upper not coated, and works great (I have shot this one a bit)
    Glad I have it and the G48 :)

    Dave interesting to say the least, my local gun shop had a longslide glock in 10mm...I thought about it but ended up going for a XDM instead. If one bought the 10mm then buy purchasing barrels in 40 s&w , 357sig you could have 3 guns in one

    In much of the USA, you can either have a permit and conceal the gun, or carry it openly.

    In my state, you need the permit to co conceal the handgun and carry it concealed.

    They issue permits if you don't have felony or domestic violence convictions.

    It is nice to have the ability and freedom to defend your self.

    Yes i imagine it would give a person a great piece of mind no pun intended.
    Ive still got like 15 fixed blades several folders .3 bows.a crossbow .tomahawk.making a sword .and a kukri.and awaiting a rucki some im ok for home defense .and a really annoying chihuahua that i could throw at an intruder lol.
    Basically in ireland when we were under british colonial rule they imposed several laws to restrict our ability to usurp them a common tactic used by the empire at the time and most of our laws are based on the same laws so no weapon is allowed to be purchased as a defense tool .also a myriad of other stuff mostly ninja crap .but also spears its illegal to hunt with a bow or spear here .interesting in the uk before the dunblayne massacre they could hold a variety of firearms but its.more like ireland since

    A pistol licence can be got if your a member of a firing range and you can use it for target practice but generally it's very hard to get something like a glock, looked into it when I got my shotgun licence but a lot of hassle. Carrying it would put you in jail if you did use it, home invasion would even be dodgy but laws have changed a bit on that .
    Nice glocks David with that AR you had I wouldn't like to try and take your Infi.

    I love my Glock 43. I carried a Kahr PM9 for years, but I like Glocks more and was waiting for a single stack. Unfortunately, I'm in CT, so I'm limited to 10 rounds. That was what made me stop carrying my Glock 19. It doesn't make sense to carry a full size handgun when I can't even load the magazine to capacity.

    That being said, I only have two gripes with it. The first is that the magazine isn't really a single stack. It doesn't matter when it's in the gun, but I sure miss carrying the thin single stack magazine of the Kahr as a reload. The second is that they can't seem to make a 7 round magazine from the factory. I use the Taran Tactical +1 and the +2 as the reload. I'll have to take a look at the 43x.

    I have a G19 and a G26. I chopped a polymer 80 G19 frame down to accept G26 mags. Very simple to do and really nice to carry! Recommend it.
