Best Little Hand Gun In Oklahoma

Great Conceal Carry Gun with Suits (or anything really)
I bought mine towards the end of the first year it came out and I've had no problems with it. I wear suits most of the time and I can carry mine in an Uncle Mike's pocket holster in my jacket's inner breast pocket or in a Vedder tuckable IWB (appendix) without anyone taking notice.
This gun has very low recoil. My kids 9-12 shoot this at the range with me and they have no issues firing it. My oldest fires my G26 and G23/G19 (I have a conversion barrel...thanks Glockstore!) and he enjoys firing the G42 because of the lower recoil.
I don't like the trigger on this, which is why I'm getting the 3.5 lbs connector to alleviate the long pull with the hard break. Perhaps it is the size and weight of the gun, but it seems the trigger feels like it has a longer pull and that break is "hard" to get over.
This is my summer and slim line wear daily gun. My fall/winter daily gun is a G26.
FIRST GLOCK AUTO AND HAVE NO REGRETS
This is the first Glock that I have ever bought and I do not have any regrets whatsoever! A friend of mind recommended it to me. Said that I should get either a 42 or 43. I chose the 42 for the compactness of it and ease of concealment. Do hope to get a 43 eventually. Traded in my Taurus 738 for this gun. Had so many problems with jams with it. Don't have that problem with the Glock. Looking forward to putting several rounds through it at the range.
Great carry handgun
PLUS fun to shoot. Had a Ruger LC9s, way to 'snappy' for my wrist and thumb(arthritis and poorly repaired dislocated thumb), as was son's G43...double stack no go for thumb(G26)...best of all worlds for me. Small, light, easy to shoot(accurate!), VERY effective with 'proper' ammo(I like Lehigh Xtreme defender)..reliable, typical Glock quality..excellent!
