Glock 43 Usage & Features

Primary Use:

Concealed Carry

Are you right handed or left handed?


What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

Single stack makes it narrow enough to fit easily into concealed carry holsters or purse. the glock name is one i trust to make a gun that will last a long time and not fail me just when i need it.

Tell us about shooting this gun:

I had to purchase a “ghost trigger” to modify trigger pull. was to difficult to have a smooth pull otherwise.

How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?

I tried lots of guns out and this one is a perfect fit for me. i am an older person with weak hands but i can rack the slide easily, the sights are great at target practice. there is little to no recoil. i shoot at the range at least once a month and feel very comfortable with this weapon both from a personal safety point of view and a fun gun to shoot at the range. i did add a green lazer to it for personal home safety. i am 76 and need the lazer to make up for lack of sight line especially in the dark. i used crimson trace and it is wonderful.

How reliable is it?

This gun is very reliable. have never had a shooting issue.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?

I try to buy good name brand only. cheap brands have a way of causing mis-fires or jams.

What do you dislike about shooting this gun, if anything?

If I shoot at the range for more than an hour or so my hands get tired but otherwise all is perfect with this gun.

Was it easy to take down and clean?

I am just learning this process but besides the instructions that came with the gun glock offers many videos to help you.

Would you recommend this gun?


For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?

Perfect size for concealed carry yet 9mm offers threat stopping power.

Anything else you would like to share about the gun?

Just joining the glock family is a wonderful enjoyment.

      Hi Gary,
      I would check with your local gun shop first and then you can default to finding it online if they can’t get it for you.
