New Market

Think about it guys......there are a lot of women buying guns now days. You think maybe Glock is trying to tap into that market? I'd say it's a pretty smart move on their part!

Shooting reviews are in and it's reliable right out of the box and very light recoil.

I have one, got it yesterday. It does have light recoil and shoots very nice. My daughter shot it and loved it so now I have to buy another one. It was cheap at $319.00 and will most likely be replacing my P238.

I think it is funny that we are seeing more .380s. The truth is, the reason the .380 was popular for 75 years was the light recoil and easy carrying of the pistols. Technology advanced to where we can now have 9mm's that are the same size and weight, some even lighter, than traditional .380's, but yes, recoil is a bit stiffer.

I won't be buying a 42 as I have a Ruger LC9 that allows me to leave my Dillon press set up for one caliber, but I do see why some might want one.

And also there is the foreign market where I bet Glock will sell a lot of them.

Glock will sell a boatload of these. Glock fans will get them to round out the collection, those folks recoil averse and desiring a small-enough carry/purse/under-pillow option will like it once the word gets around about its easy recoil. Not suggesting that it'll be the king of all sales but considering the production lifespan of a firearm it'll more than justify the economic venture of engineering, manufacturing, and selling of it. I personally doubt if I'll ever buy one but it'll sell..even to a number of those that are mad at glock for 'dropping the ball' on the single-stack 9mm..

I bought one and think it's great the ironic part is that I have very large hands and it's the only glock I can shot without leaving slide marks on my hand.
they didn't cut corners with it like some of the other makers do with the 380 this gun still sports the polygonal barrel.


as far as making it a 9mm I would just say I seen a lot of people who wanted the Kimber solo because it was nice and small then bitched because of the kick and not being able to keep it on target. no issue like that with he 42 I think I would rather have a 380 for back up that I can actually hit things with then a 9mm that is questionable. then the trigger is nice not like the double action ruger lcp that slaps your finger every time you shoot it. sorry guys it's late and i'm rambling but so far I do like the 42.

They are creating a demand for a 9mm by starting with the .380 so when the 9mm hits the market everyone is going to buy that aswell.

Speculations of course.

I put down a deposit, and Iím on a waiting list. They will sell a few here in the USA (long waiting list). It felt good in my hand (it is small, but not too small), it will fit in some pants pockets, read reports that it is a decent shooter, and it was cheap. Iím not a fan of .380, and would be far more excited about a single stack 9. But, if it runs as reliably as all of my other Glocks, it will find a permanent place in the collection.

I'll say one thing about .32's and .380's.

Especially .32's.

They are maybe the funnest guns to shoot ever made.

I bought a FN 1910/22 years ago and carried it for a long time in the woods, shot squirrels and such with it. What a fun gun. I had a caselot of RWS hardball ammo and burned a lot of it up.

Anyway, I digress.

I can't see buying a .380 when the ammo is as pricey as it it compared to the 9, but can see why some might want to.

I put my paws on it at the Shot Show. I am not a big fan of pocket type guns. This one though actually felt ok in my hands. Not being a fan of the .380 cartridge I won't own one but if they do release a 9mm I might. Compared to the Smith, Ruger, and other pockets guns, the Glock feels solid. I would not be afraid to run thousands of rounds through it. The others I would have concern with.

How would you rate it in comparison to a 238?

For me, the 42 fit my hand better. I am a big 1911 fan but the 238 is just too small for me.

Good observation.

I have a Ruger LC9 9x19. I have wondered about it myself I guess "just because" it is a locked breech lightweight-frame pistol that must contend with 30,000+ cup pressure units.

I've put about 600 rounds thru it with not one jam including lots of lead bullet loads. I do not shoot it alot but it has held up very well so far.

Would it equal the round count capable with a Glock 42?

Can't imagine it, really. Especially a G42 .380 which should last indefinitely.

Having said that, I really like the Ruger and would for sure pick it over a G42 in .380.

A G42 in 9x19?

Well, I'd have to hold it in my hand to make that determination. I'd bet, just as bolt here says, the Glock would last more or less indefinitely as well in 9mm.
