single stack

No shooting in the video, just talking:

I feel that knowing Massad Ayoob in real life would automatically make you better and smarter about everything concealed carry related.   He actually “wrote THE book” on concealed carry… numerous books actually. Did Massad cash a check after this video? I don’t know maybe… either way I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that if you like Glocks (he does), I’m assuming you’d probably like this G43.

Here’s Glock’s national sales Manager Bob Radecki shooting it:

Glock-Single-Stack-9mm-G43*shrug* looks fine to me.  Watching someone else shoot a gun is like watching someone else drive a Ferrari though.  I have to do it myself.

Thoughts?

Seriously guys.  I think I teared up a little like a proud dad seeing his newborn baby for the first time… it’s beautiful:

Glock-Single-Stack-9mm-G43

 

Glock-Single-Stack-9mm-G43-Technical-DataOh lawwwwwwd.  Would operate with 10/10.

Why this didn’t happen before the G42 .380 single stack sub-compact I’ll never understand.  I just have to assume Glock is smarter than I am and know what they are doing.  I suppose that .380 though, if nothing else created outrage and caused even more THIRST for this G43 single stack 9mm.  I don’t remember false hope, disappointment, thirst, then release being marking steps we learned in school but hell it seems to work awesome.

Basically if Glock released a rifle, fanbois would have to find something else to complain about Glock not doing.  The rifle is definitely long overdue, I think we can all agree on that.

Thoughts?

*Gasp* S&W didn’t invite me to the release?  Shame on them.  Here’s a Buck Yeager vid:

Pfffft whatevs S&W… you probably know I would have just unfavorably compared it to my beloved Glocks. :P  Yea… at least that’s what i’ll tell myself so it doesn’t hurt so much inside. *sniff sniff*… *tear wipe*

Glock doesn’t have a single stack 9mm or .40 yet though, so good for S&W for making what people are asking for. I’m looking forward to handling and shooting it someday.

Check out the Shield product page over at S&W for the specs.

Yeager can shoot… i’ll give him that. Better than I can anyway (not that i’m surprised).
