Although the little Glock is good looking in its own way – my personal opinion is the Sig P232 is a much more better looker . . .
But the Glock with the black slide – gray frame – and black talon grips does have a certain appeal . . .
The two are just about the same footprint . . .
Real close size wise . . .
That black / gray / black thing going on with the little Glock is kinda cute . . .
If you are wondering HOW I ended up with a little bitty Glock 42 – Inner10 had just opened and they only had a few pistols for rent – I loaned them my Glock 20 – good looker with a nickel boron slide and you gotta love a 10mm – right? – so I go up there to shoot one day and the G20 hollers at me – tells me he has joined Big Brothers / Big Sisters – and I’m like that’s cool that you are engaging in a civic minded endeavor such as that and would you like a petition for lodge? – you never know – right? – Well . . . I go back a week or so later and he’s ( the G20 ) all excited – he has a little brother – the G42 – and the rest is as they say – history – You know – I never did get that lodge petition back from him . . .
They are similar sized but they just about couldn’t be farther apart – DA / SA hammer fired – all metal – direct blow back operated for the Sig P232 // striker fired – polymer frame – locked breach / tilting barrel for the Glock 42 – and the difference in recoil impulse is significant – the Glock is smoother and quicker to put back on target – even though it weighs considerably less – 18 1/2 oz empty weight for the Sig P232 vs 12 1/2 oz empty weight for the Glock 42 – the Glock is a LOT easier to carry . . .
Out of these two – I have to go with the Glock . . .
I would like to say this much as well – I am not a Glock fanboy – they are good tools – are there better tools out there?? – I carry a full size 1911 Government model in God’s chosen caliber – .45ACP – as handed down to St. Browning – With all of that right out in front . . .
IF your skill set can safely embrace a striker fired pistol AND you are comfortable with .380ACP – the Glock 42 is the one to go with – out of any of these I’ve shown you as well as anything out there on the market currently – the Glock 42 wins the Giant Stuffed Panda – Fuck – I can’t believe I just recommended a Glock to somebody – for a striker fired pistol in .380ACP – they can’t be beat by anything currently on the market – but that is just my opinion – ‘scuse me while I go somewhere and hang my head in shame – LOL!
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
