Sticky Holsters For the Glock 43 Buying Guide
If you own a Glock and are in the market to buy a holster then this article is for you. Specifically we'll discuss why you should never buy a gun from a dealer and what to look for when purchasing your next gun. After reading this article you should have a better understanding of how to buy a gun and where you can find the best deals!
I don't recommend purchasing your next gun from a dealer at all, period. I've had bad experiences with dealerships and I've also purchased guns from private sellers and not always been happy with the outcome. I've also had good experiences with local gun shops so don't assume that if a local shop doesn't have something to beat that your local gunsmith will.
So what do you need to know before you part with your money? First of all, you need to know what you're looking for. If you want something cool and unique then you should definitely go for a custom gun. These are very hard to come by, mainly because they are unique. But there are plenty of them out there, I'm sure you've seen them on TV. You can easily get your hands on a custom gun, but you're going to pay for it, so be sure to take your time and do your research.
Second, you need to make sure you're buying a quality product. I wouldn't recommend buying a cheap gun from an unknown source. I once bought a gun from a guy in a grocery store, trying to save some money, and I have to tell you - it was not a happy experience! They sold me a cheap imitation gun, which didn't work when I shot it.
Next you need to determine exactly where you plan on storing your gun. Are you going to use it at home, in the car, or both? Be sure that the holster that you pick out fits your handgun the right way. It needs to fit in the slot, but also it needs to be secure enough that you won't be able to remove the gun without it falling out.
Now we're off to the next step. Make sure the holster is made of quality leather, and can be removed quickly and easily. This is very important, as you don't want to be thinking "what if I lose my grip here, or my finger ends up inside the trigger mechanism." Also, double check to make sure that your gun is comfortable. Some guns can be very heavy, and not comfortable at all, so be sure the gun can be carried and worn comfortably by yourself.
Now we can move onto the fun stuff! After you've picked out your holster and it's comfortable, you need to decide where you're going to wear it. Do you plan on leaving it in your pocket all day long? If so, then you will need to find a holsters with a big flap, so that you can easily open up the flap and put the gun in without undoing it. If you plan on wearing your gun while you're running, then you'll need to look for one that features a paddle or other quick release system.
The last thing you need to do is remember to check the laws in your state before you purchase your handgun. Some states frown on owning large caliber weapons like handguns. If this is the case, then you'll probably need to look into other sticky holsters. Otherwise, you have a legal right to own this firearm.
