I set up a line of h2o milk jugs with the intent to retain an intact fired bullet. The little .380 penetrates like mad, at eight jugs I haven't caught a fmj yet. Tomorrow I'll set up with a soaked stack of cardboard as a backstop and more jugs.




That's impressive for a .380..would not have thought it would do that..Let us know how the other test goes..curious how much it will blow through..

thx

Stopped by our local gun story to have a look --they had 3 in stock..said they have been going through a few every week..

I am still packing the S&W Shield or Kimber Solo most of the time. If I get more serious I carry a Springfield XDs in 45..nice little pistol as well but not as easy to conceal. Really like how the Shield feels and shoots.

I have been carry a Ruger in .380 , however I have felt for some time I needed a little more than the .380 and the little Ruger is not the easiest gun to hit with. I really like the 43 . The guy at the store told me they sell everyone of them they can get (usually the day they get them).
If I couldn't get the 43 , I was looking at the "Shield" . Nice gun as well.

The 43 IS a nice feeling little gun..agree with you, they will sell a ton of them..

I'm running a Stealthgear AIWB that I had for the G42 (I just had to tweak the fit of the kydex shell a little with a heat gun). I also have their Onyx IWB for the G26/27, they are the best holsters I've found so far.

http://stealthgearusa.com




There was an article on these in one of the gun magazines in the past few months..they had really good things to day about them..gonna have to grab one ..

Ripp




I can't say enough good things about Stealthgear. Today I installed a set of Heine "Straight Eight" night sights on it. Now all I need is a couple of extra magazines and I'm set.




Ordered one this morning ..

Ripp,

Have you gotten your holster yet? I got my new one for the 43. It works good but the belts clips are different from the ones on the holster for my G27. They are not good in that they seem to catch on everything whereas the older ones are "lower profile". I need to call Stealthgear and get it sorted out.

You guys get some nice toys! I've always liked the look of the Walther PPS which I guess is along similar lines to the Glock, but owning anything like this here is a pipe dream...

FYI-in the July issue of GUNS AND AMMO..very interesting article coparing the new Glock to most common other brands --awesome test...

Did try the new holster this weekend hiking, around town and driving..like it a lot..ordering another one for another handgun I carry often..works very well for concealment especially leaving your shirt untucked...

I'll probably get one. I carry the Glock 19 and it is a great pistol, but there are times I want something a little more on the thinner side. I tried very hard to warm up to the Glock 26, but never could. However the S&W M&P Shield is also a good little pistol. Oh choices and more choices.
