For those who are fans of the Glock, or are looking for a reliable pocket pistol, little recoil (compared to the 9mm), have small hands, etc., you may want to give the new Glock 42 a look. Despite its petite size, some may find it slightly bulkier than other .380 such as the Khar P380. The small pistol maintains all of the same attributes Glock is known for : simplicity, natural grip-angle, low bore-axis, intuitively placed controls, and reliability.
Some of you may be saying, “this is not the first .380 Glock has manufactured.” This is true. Glock has the 25 and 28, both pistols are chambered in .380 but are only available for Law Enforcement.
