    I was surprised when I first took my G43 to the range, it was easier to control than I imagined it would be. Perhaps this is due to the fact that I was assuming it would be hard to control before I ever fired it. Great little pistols in my book.

    I'm very happy with a vedder light tuck I got for my Kahr CW9, which is similar in size/purpose to the G43: https://www.vedderholsters.com/lighttuck/

    I'll second the Vedder Light Tuck. I have one for a G43 + TLR-6 and it's quite thin, stays put (on an appropriate belt of course), is comfortable, and allows me to get a master grip on the gun while it's still in the holster. Also, they're fairly inexpensive.

    I also saw where some here mentioned feeling like the gun would fall out of your hands due to its small size. I'm curious, do you experience this with just the flush-fitting magazine, or also with the magazine with the pinky extension? I use the mag with the Glock factory pinky extension and also had the trigger guard undercut and with this combination for me none of my pinky finger hangs off the gun. But I also have smedium sized hands...

    Just traded my shield in for a Glock 43 a couple weeks ago. Loved the shield but for work, we shoot Glocks so they feel more natural to me. The 43 is definitely more snappy than my 19 but overall it's not bad. Takes maybe a split second longer to get your sights back on target for a follow-up shot which is something you can diminish with training. The thing that I have to work on is my support hand placement as sometimes I have to readjust after a couple of shots because on it's size/recoil. Overall I think it's a very accurate gun for it's size and makes for a solid concealed carry peice.

    I shot a 43 years ago when they very first came out. I could hit with it but I absolutely hated the gun. I thought recoil was bad enough to affect controlled pairs or followup shots.

    Fast forward to today. I follow Kyle Defoor a lot on his blog and facebook and was really surprised to see how much he's been running a 43. I read his reports on the gun and it's Taran Tactical extended base pads for a year and finally decided to try it again.

    Picked up a blue label and ordered a couple of the Vicker's +2's after some research. Went to the range and really, really focused.

    And I loved the gun. I've put hundreds of rounds through it. Upgraded the sights to a set of DeFoor's night sight set from Ameriglo and then a Vickers slide release. Now when not at work I'm rarely without the pistol. I'm even comfortable running it with the flat bottom mags

    One last thing I think that in the years since my first experience with one Glock's improvements to the trigger with their "-" connector as a standard feature is a huge win for the gun.
