Glock 43 Versatility

The G43 is the most highly desired and anticipated release in Glock history.  The G43 is a great choice for an off-duty gun or a conceal carry gun. It is lightweight and compact and can be easily concealed.

Glock 43 Off-Duty

The choice for which gun to carry often is determined by the climate. As an officer in Southern California, this is definitely the case. It’s nice to wear a pair of shorts and a tank top, yet still carry a reliable back-up gun. The G43 will fit nicely into a pocket holster. I like the Black Hawk pocket holster in size 03. The G43 has the typical flat Glock design which disappears in your pocket. There isn’t a bulge or that gun outline in your pocket.

Glock 43 Conceal Carry

The G43 isn’t just for the off-duty law enforcement officer. This is a viable choice for a civilian that is looking for a compact 9mm pistol. It can be carried safely and comfortably on the waist. I like the DeSantis Insider holster. The holster is durable and the pistol can be easily drawn.
