Glock 42, loaded six plus one with 95 grain pills: 17 ounces.
Ruger LCP, also six plus one with 95 grainers: 12 ounces
Ruger LC9, seven plus one with 147 grainers: 21 ounces
Glock 27, loaded with thirteen plus one 180 grain HST: 27 ounces, and it did get a chuckle from me.
Beretta Pico and 32 ACP barrel once released. I have a couple handguns on the chopping block I’d trade in a heartbeat to make it happen.
Because thinner than LCP with real sights, paddle release to prevent popped mags, a slide that locks open on empty, and spare barrel in a more controllable caliber to try out. Both calibers already stocked in the safe, to boot. If it makes me half as happy as I think it will, it will certainly be what I wish the LCP had been. And the LCP is no slouch as is, certainly looks better than the derpy Italian to give full credit.
Not even toting a spare mag, today:
It is hot and humid, buggered if I am lugging more than this right now.
Where a J-frame is the standard pocket heater, the G42 is a pig. So says the forums, at least:
The FN 1910 was a high brow pocket pistol with svelte frame and excellent concealabity. But the Glock 42 is an over sized, over weight pig. At least according to the internet.
Whaddayaknow? The Glock is lighter, thinner, shorter, and has real sights. No mention of button vs. heel clip mag. releases because I like both, to be honest. I absolutely love the 1910 and having a modern equivalent is just dandy.
