The Ultimate Firearms Destination for the Gun Lifestyle

Glock 43 vs. Glock 26

Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics just released a video wherein he discusses his marked preference for the G26 over the G43. He makes some great points about magazine capacity, concealment, need and other matters. Unfortunately take a different stance on some of it; some of it I completely disagree with. I like the G43 and think there’s plenty of reason to carry one.

Note – I’m friends with Aaron and respect him as an instructor. In fact I recently attended one of his courses, where I had a great time and learned some things (that  was actually “my” G43 in the first part of the video). He knows I take a different position on the “small gun issue”; luckily we both think it’s in disagreement and intelligent discourse that learning occurs. A good debate is a Good Thing.

Here’s his take on the G43 vs. G26:

Agree with him or not, we are (as he says in this video) “…becoming a more intelligent shooting community.” That’s another Good Thing, so let’s keep that impetus going with reasoned discussion. More to follow as soon as I have time to pen a response. In the meantime, carry whatever you want as long as you’re doing so responsibly and pragmatically and training with it.
