The introduction of the highly-anticipated Glock 43 single-stack 9mm pistol for concealed carry has been a huge success, thanks, in a large part, to immediate aftermarket support from third-party manufacturers.

The Glock 43 uses the same sights as the now-established Glock 42 .380 ACP pistol, so aftermarket sights light night sights are easy to find, however, the 9mm is a little bit larger than the .380 and isn’t compatible with existing molded holsters. Just the same manufacturers have been quick to make form-fitting holsters for the new pistol in addition to the many universal holsters made for a wide range of single-stack nines.

Both Blade-Tech and DeSantis are announcing updated versions of their holsters for the G43. Blade-Tech is launching their Klipt Ambi inside-the-waistband holster for both left- and right-handed shooters for $49, which is a pretty fair price. They’re also having a Klipt holster giveaway on their Facebook page.

DeSantis is announcing eight updated molded G43 holsters in addition to a spread of universal holsters for the new Glock. They cover in-the-waisband, on-the-waistband, ankle- and pocket-carry. All in all they’ve got 17 ways to carry the Glock 43, check ’em out.
