    Why do I want a G43?

    This would be my 2nd one. This one is different as it's the Talo model with the blacked out rear and Trijicon front. Price is the same as a regular model which confuses me a bit but whatever.
    Went to my crack dealer yesterday to get the GF some .380 to go to the range and shoot the PPC competition.
    I do like Glocks and it is smaller than my 3913 but I sacrifice 3-8 round magazines for 2-6 rounders. Still on my mind though.

    Summer is coming. I replaced my J frame smith with a 43. Easy to carry while wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Same trigger as all my other Glocks. Keeps things simple for me.

    Dunno ... sorry, this one doesn't make sense. The SW 3913 is sorta a semi collectible, and doesn't make sense to get rid of that and get a second 43 when you can do whatever you want sight wise.

    I agree, and why the 43 just works for me ... use/grip/trigger/all is already well programmed from thousands of rounds of use via my other Glocks, so it just works without making me learn or do anything new. The 42, not so much, just a bit too small for me to 'feel at home' with it.

    I don't have a 43 as of now Patton. I had one in Michigan but sold it. This would have been my 2nd one that I bought.
    It got sold at the LGS so I'm still thinking about something smaller than my 3913.
    The S&W is by far my favorite pistol and after shooting a competition with it last week, it just confirmed it but I want something a little smaller. I'll keep looking.

    I have the G43 Talo addition. I was not interested in the Glock of any kind till I saw that G43 on the LGS's side in the shop. A couple of weeks later went to check on it and he had just gotten another one in.
    I use it with a Kydex trigger only holster for my pocket gun. Size and fit work great. I also have the Pierce extended +1 grip in the pinky magazine so now I carry a total of 8 rounds in the gun. I have a Magguts +1 spring in the flat base plate magazine so I can also carry 8 rounds with the use of that one.
    So far it is the best pocket 9mm that I can find for quality and function. No worries.

    Okay, I follow. Still, if you don't have to sell the 3913, don't. If you decide to, I'd def be interested in it.

    The 3913 will definitely stay. I may sell all the others but not that pistol.
    I won a PPC shoot with it last week and it grows on me more every time I carry it.
    What I do want is something a bit smaller in the grip department. It's only an 8 round magazine but something smaller size wise. I've had 2 Shields and they're great pistols but I'm looking for something else.
    It'll be a single stack for sure. I just need to look some more.

    Why do you feel you need a reason to buy another Glock?
