VIDEO: SHOT Show 2014—Glock's New .380

Glock added to the .380 ACP market today with the release of the company’s new G42 pistol at the  2014 SHOT Show now under way in Las Vegas. This is Glock’s smallest pistol to date, clearly aimed at the concealed carry market. It is a single stack, slimline pistol with an overall length of just under 6 inches and a weight of 12.35 ounces.

Made to fit nicely on your ankle or in your pocket. The G42 is small, but it retains all the classic Glock controls and the feel of the Austrian gunmaker’s larger pistols. When you grab it, you’ll feel the ergonomics are pure Glock.

Officers will find this .380 will make a great backup or off-duty gun. It should offer the same shooting experience as your primary carry, so you should have no problem qualifying on the range with the G42.
