Glock 43X purchase

Hello Ron, can you recommend a holster?

I only have experience with Werkz holsters, because they specialize in holsters to accommodate weapons mounted lights, but there are many threads about holsters if you use the search thingy. (Everybody here uses holsters!)

Will it support my questionable glock trigger? j/p :grinning:

I have a Ruger Sec. 9 That I used as my Carry gun till a friend told me about the Glock 43X. Now that is my normal carry unit. My Ruger is secured in the bedside table for use there at night

That is the most important function of any holster. :point_up:

However with “questionable Glock trigger” you may not need to cover the trigger at all… :joy:
:point_up:
Please notice… this is a joke… perhaps bad one… but who cares… :crazy_face:

Two quick items I’d like to mention.

1- Glock triggers are the EASIEST triggers to get smooth and consistent for next to no money. A Ghost Connector and while you have the thing in pieces, use a Dremel with a felt tip and either rouge paste or (funny enough) tooth paste and polish all the metal parts of the trigger system to a mirror brightness. Grease the appropriate contact points and I will guarantee you a sub 3.5lb smooth pull with an almost imperceptible “wall”.

2- Put away the Glock OEM 10 round mags and immediately order the package deal of 3 pack of S15 magazines and metal mag catch form Shield Arms. Now you have a 15+1 ultra reliable gun in a package that disappears under a t-shirt. I’ve been running mine hard for years no with no malfunctions. Better than factory mags. https://shieldarms.com/s15-3-pack-mag-catch-combo

You know what that was so funny. when I saw the preview of the message it only showed the part where you were sounding serious, i thought nobody got my bad joke, I only signed on to explain my self and feel like a dunce. But i am glad your bad joke is masking my bad joke.

OP, I use Vedder for most of my Glocks, including my regular G43. Always fit like a glove, secure “click” when holstering, and trigger completely covered. Both OWB and IWB. Very easy to carry.

Here’s what I can do with a regular G43, with its terrible, awful, bad day trigger from hell! JK, I don’t make trigger excuses, I own my limitations…I’m sure it’s likely more accurate than this!

Do you use the vedder comfort tuck? I have been considering the alien cloak tuck, i think i want a pancake or hybrid holster. Any thoughts?

43x MOS last week at range- 7yd, slow, deliberate shots. (I’m still learning)

I use Vedder light draw OWB and Vedder light tuck IWB. I don’t carry for extended periods (retired) and I wear Duluth cargo pants with a ratchet type belt (forget brand, but quick and easy to adjust), so I find them both comfortable and very concealable.

I also use the Vedder Pocket Locker for my SW 442 .38 Special and G43 if I opt for pocket carry.

I think they’re currently running a Black Friday sale as well. Other thing I like about them is they actually answer questions quickly, email or chat.

I have a regular old G43 that I semi retired when the higher capacity micro 9s came out.

I just have a cheap Concealment Express holster for it. Think they call themselves Rounded now. Also think they make some holster options with claws on them now as do many other holster makers. I like claws and wedges for keeping the grip closer to the body for better concealment.

I’m a little bit of a trigger snob with rifles but not so much with pistols. I don’t think the Glock triggers are horrible. The 43 wasn’t all that bad and the Gen 5s are a little better than the 3s out of the box. But my old Gen 3 feels pretty good now after a decade plus of dryfire and range time. Though I know Staccatos are in a whole other league @Jerzy :wink:

Good article on the 43 in the latest issue of the magazine.

If you picked up another pistol your Staccato would jam on you out of spite! :crazy_face::rofl:

If you like the Glock 43X, I highly recommend the Glock 48. It is a thin version of the Glock 19. For me it handles and feels great. I shoot very well with it. I did replace the factory sights with night sights and upgraded to 15 round magazine. It has a 4.17 barrel length that really reduces the kick and improves the accuracy.

My main EDC is a 48 MOS and when I decided on this my highest pro point for it was that the slightly longer sight radius would help me with accuracy especially when runnin’n’gunnin…. And it did and concealing the extra fraction of an inch AIWB is not really that hard.

So that plan absolutely worked well but now that I put a Holosun EPS Carry on it the longer slide no longer plays as big a roll in “shoot ability” as it did before so I’m STRONGLY considering switching it out for a 43X MOS with the same sight.

That’s good insight, because I was considering the 48 MOS just to get a little added accuracy at longer distances. Maybe I’ll just outfit another 43xMOS like I already have. That was my original plan because the firearm feels like it was made for my hand.
