    So this looks like a single stack 19. I guess I’d rather just carry a 19. Or, actually I carry a 17. But is four millimeters thinner a benefit to giving up the capacity? To me, no. Or the ability to use the larger capacity 17 21 24 or 33 round mags?.....No.

    It makes sense for 10 round States but I'll pass.

    I know I won’t like it better than a 19, but I’ll probably buy one and carry it for a while just to see if I like it better than my 43. Which isn’t a high bar to hurdle...The 48 pushes itself slightly more towards the “fighting” end of the scale vs the 43’s (to me anyway) “backup” role of something you only carry when you can’t quite easily conceal something bigger and better.

    Idk, most of the time my G19 fits my daily attire, is functional and 16 rds provides a feeling of comfort; or a Walther PPQ, when I wish to alter things a bit :-).
    The various 42's,43's etc are of benefit to others, fortunately, I rarely, if ever, need to alter my carry choices, just lucky I guess.

    Neither do I. However, I play piano at my church. And not wishing to look like a slob, I tend to wear slimmer fitting shirts there. The 43 just conceals (I intentionally said “conceals”, not “carries”) better.

    I see nothing that would attract me to buying a G48...

    If I want to carry a thin Glock, the G43 with the SI +1 or +2 Mag Base Plate extension for 7+1 or 8+1 capacity would work for me.

    If I want 10-round capacity, the G19 with a 10-round mag would work.

    If I want a smaller pistol with 10-round capacity, the G26 or the XD9 Subcompact with 10-round mag would fill the bill.

    The job of an even smaller 9mm would be filled with a SIG P290RS with the 8+1 mags.

    So for me, I really see no advantage to the G48, especially since the G48 mags don't work with the G43.

    I don't even see it as a direct competitor to the SIG P365. It is a much larger pistol.

    After handling both of these today I prefer the feel of the 48 over the 43x. I will probably buy neither since I'm heavily invested in double stack glocks. The 48 feels good in my hand, I did not shoot either. I dont want to buy more holsters and all that shit. If I lived in a commie fag state and didnt wear a badge the 48 would probably be a good answer. If I get a chance to shoot them I will report back. The one thing Glock did right on these is the price. The 19x was just silly fuckery to me and the 43x follows suit. Who ever runs glocks R&D department may very well be fucking retarded. Hopefully the 48 shoots as good as it feels, because the whole MOS series and so far the X series have been completely useless IMHO of course.

    I carry a G19 almost all the time, but once in a while have to take the 43 due to attire. That said, I will likely pick up a 48 since I am from Illinois, and after this recent election- gun owners here are fd.
