    Selling your Glock 42 to buy the new Glock 43?

    How many Glock 42's do you think will hit the shelves of people who would rather have the 43?

    I think this is my time to get the 42 for a steal! The new 43 looks awesome, but that price tag makes me cringe!

    NO WAY -- not giving up my SKINNY MINNIE for anything or anyone......or even for any price (not that anyone WOULD offer enough to tempt me.....). I do love that little girl.

    I am sooo happy that I finally did something right. I was tempted to buy the little G42 the moment I picked it up but held off because it was a .380. No offense to anyone who loves it, but that caliber just doesn't do much for me. Thinking the G43 is the answer. :)

    I think there will be a lot of small used 9mm's on the market in the coming months. Friend just bought a used Shield for $250. Guy wanted the funds to go towards the new Glock.

    Not to sound like a douche, but my shield works better than any single stack 9mm I could possibly fathom. I don't think glock could satisfy me any better. I'll be lookin for a used G42 at a steal.
    Better to have the .22 with you than the .45 you don't.

    And this is why the .380 was released before the 9mm.

    I didn't think the price was that bad.

    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    The worst of all worlds, low capacity, too big for a pocket carry, too small for an IWB carry. I fail to see the point.

    And with 6 round mags against the shields 7 and 8 mags. Maybe someone will come up with a 30 round backup mag for it.

    I'll keep my G42 as well.

    The only reason I sell or trade off a gun is if I fail to develop an overall "like" for it or if it gives me problems. My little G42 is a great little shooter and it's just fun! No reason to get rid of it.

    It's interesting how many of us look at certain gun choices and have such strong opinions. In regards to the G43...I don't pocket carry but I do carry AIWB which makes it the (almost) perfect size and it carries 6+1 which is more capacity than the snub nose revolvers that many prefer to "pocket carry." I'll most certainly buy one but I'll probably wait for the reviews to surface first.

    Well, since I don't like 380 for self defense, I decided to wait for the single stack 9 and I am glad that I did, I am sure that I will be able to get a used 42 now at a great price. It still won't be in my carry rotation though, the 43 will be for that.
