Gun Descriptions

Glock 43

The already legendary G43 is a GLOCK Single stack, 9 mm Luger caliber pistol. It is ultra-concealable, accurate and a fantastic tool for all shooters regardless of one’s hand size. The grip has a built-in beaver tail design which allows the shooter to acquire a high and tight grip. The aggressive texture of the grip surface allows for comfortable and reliable operation of the pistol. The large magazine catch makes quick work of removing the six round magazine. Engineered based on the same superlative standards that GLOCK is famous for, the tiny G43 tolerates the same torture tests all its bigger brothers in the GLOCK pistol family withstand.

Ruger LC9S

The striker-fired Ruger LC9s features a short, light, crisp trigger pull for faster shooting and improved accuracy. The LC9s provides slim, lightweight compact personal protection with a blued, alloy steel slide, a high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame, aggressive checkering and an easily acquired three-dot sight system, include a HIVIZ Lightwave Fiber Optic sights option. It is offered with a manual safety or with only the integrated trigger safety. The LC9s is just slightly larger (less than 1" taller and 1" longer) than the popular and very compact LCP. The LC9s is a great pistol to consider for personal protection when you want something with a larger caliber than offered in the LCP.The striker-fired Ruger LC9s features a short, light, crisp trigger pull for faster shooting and improved accuracy.
