What does everyone think? I have a pm9 and a g26. How do these compare?

The G26 is huge compared to the Kahr. Almost night and day in thickness. Now compare a G43 and its closer

Thank you, yes there is a huge difference. how do the pm9 and g26 compare to the g4? I have both a pm9 and a g26. I was thinking of getting a new gun and the g43 came up.

If you like 9mm, get the single-stack 9mm Glock. Replace the stock front sight with a Trit dot and you are GTG.

I've got a whole collection too. Love the 19, but I ALWAYS have either a 42 or 43 in my pocket. If I don't want it in a pocket, an N82 is super comfortable. Can't beat the 42 & 43 for little single stacks IMHO.

I had a Kahr CW9 and from what I remember it is kinda in between the size of a Glock 42 and 43. I think the 42 is even lighter by a tiny amount. I like both the 42 and 43 a lot more especially the trigger and field stripping process. Plus if you have a 17, 19, 26 etc everything feels familiar, just smaller.

The 42 really conceals well, great for pocket carry and with an IWB holster I don't even feel it. 43 is a few more ounces but still good. I try to carry my Glock 26 as much as possible but I find that the thickness of it when wearing more form fitting clothing is what usually pushes me to reach for the 43 or 42. Casual clothes like cargo shorts and t shirts its always the 26 but date night with the wife when I dress more nicely is when the 43 and 42 get a lot of use.

The thinnest Glock that is still a high capacity pistol isn't a Glock, it's a Ruger SR.
Much better trigger, too.
And it has a manual safety in addition to the safe trigger action.
Less expensive, too.
Just try one.
