What features does this gun have that appealed to you?             

I went to a few local gun ranges after getting my CPL. I wasn’t sure what kind, brand, size or anything that I wanted. It took several trips and guns to figure out what I wanted. I marked the targets with a marker in order to show me which ones I handled best.

Tell us about shooting this gun.

I did the best with the Glock. I have small hands and my Glock 42 is a perfect fit! It is easily handled and concealed. My personal preference at the time was a .380. I will be getting the Glock 43 next. And hopefully soon.

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?

The size for my small hands is absolutely perfect! Recoil isn’t too bad, and the sights are amazing. Trigger pull is fairly easy, and the gun is perfectly concealed.

How reliable is it?           

100% reliable. If I could advertise for Glock, I would.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?    

The Tul ammo, which is cheaper, gave me a little trouble after about 100 rounds. I haven’t had issues with any other ammo. I think it’s because that is a very cheap brand, but I only use it for target practice.

Does the gun have any specific ammunition requirements? If so, please explain:             


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

NOTHING AT ALL! Can’t wait to get another one.

Was it easy to take down and clean?

Very easy to clean and break down. I looked it up on YouTube first.

Would you recommend this gun?            


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

Buy it! I love mine. My only regret is that I didn’t buy the Glock 43. That one is my next purchase.

Anything else you would like to share about the gun?   

I am extremely happy with it. Even when I get a 43, I will keep it.
