    The 48 was not on my list at all since I have my bases covered with a 19 and a shield...but then I held a 48 and 43x at my lgs and now I want both. I might acquire one or the other even before I get a second "back-up" 19. (as of now I shoot my 19 better than any other of my 6 pistols)

    I'd mod up a new 48 or 43x with sights and trigger right away. Then mags and lots of range time before I make it one of my carry guns. But they sure do feel nice, I'll give ya that.

    Yes, when you get a chance to hold a 48, the grip just feels right I think it is more of a big deal for people with smaller hands. I have small hands, and the G48 is just perfect.

    I view my Glocks like I view my DeWalt 20v cordless drill- dependable tools that work every single time. They aren't sexy and exciting but I know they will hit what I aim at and go bang every time I pull the trigger. And that's why I carry a Glock as a defensive handgun.

    That's my feeling toward them as well. I love my wife's .45 Colt New Vaquero and my BHP, but the Glock 19 is the gun they will bury me with.

    Well, I rented the 43X on Thursday. I did not like it as much as the Glock 48 either. I thought it had more recoil than my 9mm version 1 Shield. So, I am going to pass on the 43x for now. The G48 just feels perfect.

    As a huge DA/SA carry guy, even I am surprised that I now find myself carrying a Glock again.

    If so, would be the first Glock I have ever held that did that. For me, they ranged from not the worst I ever held, such as the newer Gen 17, and surprisingly the 20, to "why would anyone willingly own this thing?" response to it. If I see one in a store, will check it out at least.

    Yes, check it out. I have carried it a week, and I periodically practice holstering and unholstering it. I am still impressed with the way the grip feels

    I really got the Glock bug when the Gen 5s came out with front serrations and NO cut out in the grip.
    Now I have two Gen 5 G19s (one of which is MOS) and two G45s (one which is MOS).

    I was actually pleasantly surprised to find the cutout did not impede reloads by any measurable amount. I can appreciate some may have their finger naturally in that location (which could cause issues shooting and reloading), but not the case for me... i fully expected it to be detrimental.
