My daughter finally picked up her G 42 today. She had it on lay a way for the past 3 months.
We went to the range and set up our targets at 21 ft./7 yds.
She shot it great! All of her rounds hit in the COM. She was shooting a mix of 95 gr fmj Georgia Arms canned heat, and Freedom Arms, 100 gr fmj.
She was a happy camper, and said, I'm glad you recommended this gun for me Daddy.
I was also shooting one of my G 42's and it shot excellent for me also. I was using the Freedom Arms 100 gr fmj as well. I bought my first one in July, and the 2nd in Aug. Very nice back up to my back up...lol So far I have shot Georgia Arms canned heat, Freedom Arms re-manufactured and new, Fiocchi 95 gr fmj, as well as Hornady Critical Defense. (My carry rounds.) It has eaten and spit out everything without a hitch.
I decided to shoot my G 33 (357 SIG,) love that gun/round combination. Kept all my 31 rounds in COM, at 7 yds. My daughter said, that sure is loud Daddy..lol
The Glocks are very manageable in 357 SIG, and yes, they are quite loud.
As always, stay safe.
