    I'm getting ready to add a G 43x because of the 10 round magazine.

I wanted a Glock 19, I can only afford one gun for the foreseeable future and showed up to my shop too late. Both 19s were sold within 30 minutes. They only have Glock 19 MOS (not worth the extra $80+ for optics I’ll never use. The have Glock 45s and 19x but I hate the tan. Long story short I’m debating whether to exchange my Glock 43 that I picked up new to replace my SP2022. Capacity is the ultimate concern only being
    able to have 1 gun for the house, carry, camping, everything. I ordered a CYA holster and two base plates (+2 from Taran Tactical) but also have concerns about how terrible these shoot (snappy, small, not fun) and while I’d like to carry more I need a do all gun. Am I foolish to exchange my unshot 43 for the 45?
    IMO it would be a foolish decision to not buy what fits your hand and feels the best to you. Capacity is important but you can always leave extra or extended mags in your vehicle. As far as recoil anything small really changes the game. I was limp wristing my g22 because I was used to steel guns and 9mm. After a half hr at the range 0 issues besides having to fix the twisted sights. You can always get yourself a light which should help with muzzle rise but like i said get what YOU like and feel comfortable carrying. Hope this helps.

    I'm a S&W guy, and have never held a Glock.

    if it just had to be a glock........then honestly i would wait, be patient, and not settle........and i would split the difference and get a glock 26..........but that's me.

    if forced between the 43 and 45.....then i go smaller with the model 43......i am more concerned about concealed carry

    Well, I'd probably opt for the G43 because it's the smallest Glock you can get - with a small capacity to go with it. However, the thinner profile makes a big difference in carry - or at least one's own perception of carry. Plus with the 43 now, +2 and +4 mags are on the market which adds something back in if desired. I really don't see much point in the G45 because it's the grip that's hardest to conceal, which means the G19 would be better in that dimension. A lot of people like the idea of starting with a G17 and slicing the grip all the way down to G26 proportions. For ultimate concealment you use the G26 mag, or go with a G19/17 mag with sleeve spacer for a full-size, full-capacity mode!

    So for me, the G43 actually offers something I'd call different over the G45.

    For me, trying to hit a target while shooting a Glock is like trying to drive a car, while riding in the trunk.
