I know... Sacrilege to talk about a new Glock on this forum
But, I have a Ruger LCP - 1st Gen. I really hate shooting that gun. But, it makes a good pocket gun. However, I am not a huge fan, but at least it is reliable. The LCP Max doesn't really interest me, though.
I started reading and watching reviews of the Glock 42. I rented it a couple of weeks ago. I rented it again today - then went and bought one.
I put 150 rounds thru the gun. I usually don't like Glock factory sights or the Glock grip angle. But on this little gun, the grip angle doesn't really effect me as much. And, I like the sights - especially compared to the LCP sights.
Anyway - gun is very accurate. I was surprised. Low recoil too. After shooting 150 rounds thru it, it took me a little while to adjust to 9mm again.
I picked up 1 extra mag for now, so I have 3. I was surprised how I could just rapid fire the entire mag and still do so well. I like this little gun.
It has its place. Will it replace my 9mms? No - But, I think I will start using it in place of the LCP
