    Let's kick this horse one more time

    I was perusing various review sites and I found this on the Glock 42

    Glock 42 First Impressions - Monderno

    Blah, blah, blah and I get to the comments. Here was the interesting one:

    Response: Did you ask if Glock is going to make it in a 9mm?

    Reply: I did – the unofficial answer I got is that Glock is having trouble getting the 9mm to run with “all types of ammo”.

    The article was dated January 2014

    After the newness of the 42 wears off and sales dip glock will release a 9mm version and sell a bunch of them. I think if they would have released the 9 first then the 380 the sales of the 380 version would have been much lower.

    I think there's your answer, and the horse can live another day.

    You may very well be right.

    Just my opinion here but they should have made the Glock pocketable like the TCP or LCP. I would have probably wanted one.

    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    WAIT! Glock is having trouble with a Single Stack 9mm????

    I just cannot believe that this is true. I've NEVER heard that before.

    Why doesn't anyone ever ask about a single stack .40? That would be interesting.

    Because they are waiting for Glock to come out with pocket gun chambered in .41AE.

    Since they also had trouble getting the Gen4 double-stack 9mm's to run with all types of ammo, seems believable.

    My one and only 9mm is my Sig P938 pocket BUG. The only other 9mm that I would want is a full-auto Uzi.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.
