Ty! Why is the water cooler limited access to begin with, if you know. It was pretty confusing at first.You made it to the water cooler! Congrats!
There are too many Glocks at this point. I am leaning towars 43x and 48. It all depends on what my wife likes though.Recommend going with the one you are more likely to carry, the one you are most confident with at the range.
For me, I like the idea of the Glock 19X which is a Glock 19 slide/barrrel on a Glock 17 frame. Have bigger hands and the purchase I can get on a 19 has always been less than perfect, but the 17 is on the money. Feel like the 19x is the best of both world's.
I switched from the 19, which i carried for years, to the 43xMOS and never looked back. Smaller and more concealable, seemingly lighter recoil impulse, and the holosun site i added is fantastic with my aging eyes.
Dammit Dawg,Any time metal meets plastic, plastic will wear if there is any abrasive or sharp edges on the metal.
Generally speaking, metal mag release are flat and don’t have sharp edges. Therefore plastic mags are reasonably safe from being cut down.
However, most metal mags are made in a process which leaves a sharp edge where it contacts the mag release. That will keep cutting the plastic mag release until it fails.
That was my original concern. And why I posted that concern. So that others would be aware of the issue and take the proper steps to avoid it.
I was avoiding this, but as a 43x owner and CCW. I will confirm your concerns are well founded.
I received my 15 round round SA mags.. Quickly found with my version of the pistol the magazine pops out at rounds 15, 14 and 13... Making it unreliable for 15 rounds. I wondered at 12.
I followed advice and replace the mag release with a metal one.
BUT once I did that the polymer 10 rounds mags were a b!tch to eject. So I dont use those.
In the end I roll with 3 (15) rounders(45) vs 3 (10) and 30....
Hope that helps.
I have both. The 19 is a backup. I prefer the 43x now. That being said it is yours, make the one YOU are comfortable with. I wont even worry if you go with sig.Ive narrowed things down to Glock 43x, 48 and 19. It depends on how my girl likes the feel. 19 is a bit chunkier but...
Yes. Run FMJ. 60gr JHP sometimes have feeding issues in 32s and none really penetrate far enough. Usually 8-10” in gel. Hit a rib or an arm bone and then a rib and JHP might not hit vitals.Interesting. I have a full metal handgun as my main self defense. Plastic feel also concerns me. I'm young, so it's not just a generational thing I'll Google the 32 ppk. Would you say the 32acp is wildly less powerful than 9mm? Google says 360 ft/lb vs 140ft/lb. Much less stopping power I guess.
Late to the party, but so will PP/PPK derivatives in most cases depending on the caliber. I liked my P64s when I had them, but they were pretty harsh with hotter Makarov loadings even with a strong recoil spring. Not awful, but I wouldn’t want to shoot more than a box of ammo and those with big or low grip strength are not going to like it.This. The PP/PPK series are perfectly mannered in the original .32 ACP. And the trigger is outstanding - it's not often recognized, but the Walther PP is the genesis of the Hammerli 200-series target pistols. Which won a lot of Olympic medals. The guns will shoot.
Seems to mostly expand, but also very shallow penetration.I found Hydrashocks for my P32. Haven't shot gel but they sure are formidable looking .....for a .32.
I am a fan.
