Conceal Carry Weapons are becoming increasingly popular as more state laws allow law-abiding citizens to bear arms. Glock isn't everyone's first choice for a concealed carry weapon despite this demand. When people think of hiding carry, they think of Walther, Sig, or H&K, to name a few manufacturers. Even Glock enthusiasts prefer other models to the Glock.
Glock Are Accurate But Large And Unconcealable
Glock's reputation for quality is undeniable, but they come at a cost. The Glock 43, in particular, has been called "the most accurate pistol on Earth," which makes it one of our favorite guns to carry out while we're hunting or practicing self-defense skills.
Glock 19s are the most popular full-size handgun models on today's market, and they're also concealable. The reason why I choose Glock over other makes is that it's one my most trusted brands when handling guns. The very first issue is that Glocks are large. When carried under clothing like in a tight waistband of jeans or a shirt or jacket, they don't conceal themselves very well enough to enjoy them as daily carry pieces especially in some situations where you might need that extra protection against theft!
Mentioning " concealed" instead made me realize just how important it can be to practice with different types or sizes if we don't want people around us guessing what kind our weapon might actually be!
Glock lost customers to Smith & Wesson, Sig Sauer, and Ruger because their pistols met a need that people had. In response, Glock began producing much smaller models, such as the Glock 42, which fired 380 ACP, a light bullet. Then there was the Glock 43, which fired 9mm and made a lot of people happy to buy from Glock.I’ve been carrying the Glock 43 for a couple years now. It’s been a good gun, and has had relatively few malfunctions. However, the single stack 9mm G43 is small, and therefore it is not very comfortable to shoot. The G43 was Glock’s first single-stack subcompact 9mm pistol. Previously, the smallest 9mm you could get from Glock was the double-stack subcompact Glock 26. The G43 was also the first Glock to have an “as advertised” 6+1 capacity – other single stacks.
The SIG P365 was announced earlier in 2022, and it quickly became one of the most popular concealed-carry guns on earth. It's a single stack 9mm handgun with an 8 round capacity that can also shoot just as reliably as any other firearm out there - including Glocks! The only reason why people prefer these over their Glock counterparts? They have twice as many rounds before needing another magazine change, making them perfect for self-defense situations where you might get surprised by someone else who has access to your belongings at school or work (or anywhere else).
So how did Glock respond to that?
Well, G43x was launched to meet the demand for a firearm with an even larger capacity than their previous models. The Glock 43x is basically an upgraded version of the G43 with a longer grip length, but maintains the same slim design profile as previous versions. The 43x has been released with 2 different magazine capacities: 10 rounds and 12 rounds of ammunition as well as one in chamber, which makes it the perfect choice when you need more firepower fast! The 10 round magazine is designed for states that have strict concealed carry laws (like California), where a maximum magazine capacity limit is imposed by law. The 12 round magazine comes from factory from Glock, and will work in any state where there isn’t such a restriction on magazine size limits.
