"The Glock 42 is just as I expected. It's compact, it's thin and it's easy to shoot. I took it to the range without cleaning it first, which is my habit with all of my brand new Glocks. I shot 50 rounds of FMJ through it and only had 1 failure to fire on a very old reloaded round. I own a S&W Bodyguard and a Ruger LCP and found the Glock to have less recoil than both of the other .380s. I'm thoroughly pleased with my purchase and look forward to adding accessories like night sights and grip extensions when they become available."

"Yeah, it's not a 9MM, but it shoots just like a G17 or G22. My wife's first 5 shots at 20 feet were 4 through the same hole and one just below it. Like it so much I got one for myself too."

"Very excited about this gun glad i was able to obtain it, just as expected, hard to tell I have this weapon on me. Quick delivery and great customer service thanks CTD for my baby GLOCK."

"My o my is this a beautiful little baby Glock. My G26 was my other baby but now I have a GrandBaby. I have 4 others and know I will be extremely happy as I have been with all of my other Glocks. Haven't shot it yet but I see some concerns about ammo. Unusual for a Glock not to eat everything fed to it. I guess most 380's are a bit touchy, can't wait to find out."

"I had high hopes for this gun and it met them all. Fun to shoot, I put a Pearce grip on the mag for an even better feel. I think GLOCK failed making this gun so hard to get. I'm anxious for high cap mags to come out so I don't have to reload so often."

"Have held 2 of these in the last couple of months but passed on purchasing them until more reviews were in and I was comfortable with the price. They have been very hard to find in my area since the release. CTD had a great price ( $50-$60 below what I had seen locally) when I purchased mine. Ordered on a Sunday...shipped on Tuesday afternoon...was at my FFL at 10:30am on Wednesday! In my hand at 4pm. Had a gift card to cover the transfer fee, so I got a great deal. Gotta love that! Product is exactly as expected and my overall experience with CTD was great! I will certainly be watching for more deals, to continue to expand my collection!"

"CTD went extra mile in shipping my Glock. Ordered on July first and because July fourth fell on weekend CTD upgraded my shipping to two day air from free shipping so received it on July the third, two days, unbelievable! Unfortunately, the G42 had FTF and FTE every mag. Internet reviews showed numerous complaints. I called Glock sent it in as directed and they have made design changes promised a 2-3 week turnaround. Hopefully it will perform to the standard of my other Glocks. I had a different first day with my G42 than the other reviewers. Noticed the price went almost a $100. Guess mine was a first gen..CTD has best prices and service. Will continue to order their products."

"researched the gun for months. i don't get all the negatives i have found. this is the easiest shooting pocket .380 i have ever put in my hand. i tried different ammo and shooting techniques to get it to fail somehow. well i found absolutely no flaws in this great addition to the glock line up."

"I liked this pistol so much I came back and bought another. It likes 200ft/lbs, 160 and it stovepipes, 275 and the slide locks back. Shoot what works and it has no problems at all. Don't believe it's under powered, it does it's job. The little extra barrel length is more pressure and it shoots a 9x17 at 1000 fps. Remember in a jam you are not going to have hearing protection and this is on the edge of what you will be able to take. I have many other larger GLOCKs, this one lives in my pocket."

"What a handgun! Pistol wise I've shot from a .22 up to .45 ACP. This gun is truly a pleasure to shoot. Great stopping power, minimal recoil and very accurate! Great size for CC and mag capacity increased very easily to 7+1 without much $$ or changing the mag's physical size. Priced very reasonably. Please take the 'feeding issue,' reviews online with a pinch of salt. 50+ rounds, one after another, zero issues! Grip the gun properly and feed quality ammo."
