I am thinking about getting the Glock 42 or the Glock 43 for my EDC in Florida. It's blazing hot there in the summer, plus a lot of humidity, too.

Charlie, what do you like and dislike about it? Also, how many ways do you carry it? Do you have more than one holster for it? I'm seriously thinking the 43 will be my Florida EDC.

In the waistband there are several good holster makers for this type. Like the size, weight. dislike not a long range shooter I still like to test ability with a pistol 50-100 yards

Where do you carry it time wise, 12, 3, 5? You have a lot of experience on this stuff.

Walking in 2 if I am driving 4. If a hoodie in front pocket, I also have a vest in colder weather with built in holster. And I practice from all positions.

The September 2015 Guns & Ammo must have been written for us, in addition to the Tactical furniture and Kimber's, they have an article about gun rights in all the states including suppressors, hunting and CCW's.

On another note, my niece was in town (she got married last weekend) and wanted to go to the range to shoot.  Seems she has developed a phobia about handguns.

I have never seen anyone freak like this after shooting 1 round.  We tried 3 handguns.  One of the guys from the range brought out a Glock 43 for her to try, thinking it would have less recoil than her husbands SCCY, but no go.  She was in tears.  But she's good with shooting an AR.
