Default Recoil For The Wife

Tim @ Liberty
I tried my newly acquired G42 at the indoor range at Fort Harmar on Sunday evening. I used Federal 95 grain FMJ, Hydra-Shok's & Buffalo Bore Flat Nose. The recoil with both the Federal FMJ's & Hydra-Shok's was negligible...almost pleasant. The recoil with the BB's was not pleasant. It bordered on abusive. All ammo ran like a champ through the 42, but I'd stay with the low recoil for my wife to shoot, at least at the start.

Great, Thanks!

Good to know, thanks.

I've put a lot of brands of ammo through it and found the recoil negligible.
It's a real pleasure to shoot.

I haven't seen a G42 yet. How does the G42 compare to a Bersa thunder? Can one pocket carry the G42? I don't mean pocket carry like a S&W model 10 with the stock sticking out of your pocket...The hammer keeping the gun from falling out of your pocket. I can manage that with my G19.

I mean totally concealed by your pocket, with the gun in a pocket holster.

I pocket carry mine in the same pocket holster I use for my Kahr PM9. I can't speak to the Bersa Thunder but the G42 is about a quarter of an inch longer than my PM9 but much thinner and almost the same height. It's a sweet little gun and actually feels good in my hand, unlike most Glocks.

I got one for my wife for Valentine's Day. She loves and I love it. Next on the list is an Argyle Armoring trigger job for it.

Default Glock Model 42 380 Cal.

I've had my G-42 for 2 months and it has been 100% reliable. Like most people have said .380 auto is not my first choice for self defense. I have been carrying a S&W 442, .38 SPL as my backup gun for 18 years and the G-42 is going to replace it. Having "A GUN" with you 100% of the time is the first rule of winning.

I have a Kel Tec 380 I carry when I have to be discreet. People talk smack about the Kel Tec. I bet my Kel Tec is 1,000x better in my pocket than any gun in their safe.
