Single stack 9mm subcompact on the way?
I wish, but I doubt they want to kill the sales of the G42 after only 1 year. I bet it exists, but won’t show up until G42 sales start to level out.
I work for a major LEO agency and just heard that a single stack 9mm may be pushed back to 2016 because Glock cannot keep up with model 42 sales. I hope this is just B.S. because if it is not, Glock is playing us for fools by hoping we will buy both.
Knowing glock itll be a 22 caliber not the must desired slimline 9
Or maybe a single stack .40 S&W, because according to the folks who decide what new products to add, people are apparently dumb, and even though they all clamor for a single stack 9, what they REALLY want is a single stack subcompact in a stupid caliber. They’re just too stupid to know it.
Seriously, I love Glocks, but it’s such a head scratcher to me that they do this. “They want a single stack subcompact 9mm? Well, let’s give them a single stack subcompact .380!”
Maybe GLOCK hates us and think we suck.
And the .40 is a much better caliber than .380.
Yeah, but you really need mass in the slide on .40, and single-stack would likely be very uncomfortable.
I’m basing that on the G 23 I had, compared to the G 22 I also had, the 22 was more comfortable to shoot, but the 23 fit oh-so nice in my hand. The 23 was my carry piece for a few years.
I do wish Glock would get off the proverbial pot and release the single-stack 9mm.
Hopefully there’s something announced that makes those broadcasts worth it.
Looking forward to you aggravating the usual suspects with pix of booth babes.
Looks like fun.
Interested in that “Safe Haven” documentary advertised in the big theater promo page.
It always surprises me to see how much hate there is for the 42. For what the firearm is intended to be and do, I find it to be fantastic at addressing those things.
Pocket guns and I have never got along. There are certain things we just don’t see eye to eye on. Aside from not fitting in my hand (I feel like I’m trying to shoot a child’s toy), the light weight creates more recoil than should be apparent in a 9mm short. The 42 is quite petite, but it bridges that gap of having just enough real estate to allow a big boy grip and control on your firearm.
It’s size being just slightly bigger allows it to maintain its Goldilocks presence. I found the first deep concealment firearm that I ENJOY shooting. There is no recoil to even speak of, and being able to have a decently acceptable cartridge in a gun that can be driven like a 22 magnum, is a major plus in my book.
All handguns are, in reality, inadequate and a compromise in some form or another. The 42 allows me to have my compromise in a platform that’s just fun to shoot. Maybe some of those that hate this gun should try to throw a couple down the pipe and see if it changes their mind.
