To bad its not a 9mm, its bigger than I thought it would be.
Agreed..........,it will fit a niche, and as you said will work for those well. Fortunately for me, I'm not there yet.....................Its clear this was made to compete with the Ruger LC380 and similar. Not the smallest possible 380 but rather one that is pretty small and carry-able but easier to grip and shoot, with more manageable recoil. 9s in that size kick a lot more and so do smaller 380s like LCPs and our P380s and CW380s. I expect ladies, shooters with arthritis, etc will be really happy with the G42.
