Jeeper808, enjoy your Glock. I wish you the best of shots...

For me perception of the firearm is nine tens of my ability to effectively use a firearm. At 72 years old I grew up with the perception that it had better be dependable because you are putting your life on the line. So I am a cold steel and wood guy. My favorite rifles are M-14s and my favorite pistols are Sig Sauer because they give me mental protection.

What mental protection means to me is that in any environment my rifle/pistol respond similar to the way I trained and is dependable (in my head). Don’t get me wrong I still shoot at the range and own plastic/ploymer AR-15s (Sig M400) and Glocks. I don’t knock them. It is just on mornings this last winter where the temps were -3 degrees I strapped my old P239 to my hip. I was not after perfection with the P239. I wanted mental protection and that is what my P239 gave me.

I don’t put the money into the upgrades like you do. I try to get it as close to what I want “out-of-the-box”. For example my P226 I got in 1989 has only had new sights and spring changes. It still shoots like a dream. For me the more important thing was putting in the time shooting the P226 than buying upgrades.

A sig can't do what the 43 does. A Glock 43 weighs 19 oz, those Sigs mentioned weigh over 30 oz. the 225,229 and even the 239. It's not easy going for a run with a heavy gun bouncing all over the place.

I disagree. A sig can do what a 43 does. Iím 72 years young and my sig doesnít bounce when I walk the dog (I have not run in 20 years). I donít remember it ever bouncing all over the place?

My standard P229 9mm with 15 round mag weighs 29.6 ounces but the stainless version weighs 40.2 ounces. I always thought the standard P229 was light in that aluminum frame. Besides some of us with arthritis in our old hands like the heft of the extra ozís to give us balance. I canít imagine taking multiple shots with a Glock 43 in .45 ACP with it being that light? If I was so traumatized by weight I would never shoot my 10 lbs. M1A Socom II.

The Glock 43 is only a 9mm not a 45acp. It is only slightly more recoil than a shield 9mm. If it wasn't for running out of ammo, I could shoot it all day long.

I have shot xds and shield 45's and don't think the recoil is bad at all in these small packages. I did own a Glock 33 which is the 357 sig subcompact which was fun to shoot.
The only gun I really didn't like the recoil of was my scandium frame S&W 340pd with 357 mag loads.

It's not so much as a weight issue , as it is a thickness issue. I sweat pretty heavy when running, so a sizeable firearm would print like I was trying to win a wet t-shirt contest. So if I am already going small, might as well go lite also. This is not carried other than for my workouts. Believe me I would rather carry my P229 sas or my P224sas.
