Colion Noir on Glock 43 vs. Smith and Wesson Shield (VIDEO)

Mr. Colion Noir weighs in on his feelings on micro-carry 9mm single stack polymers by comparing the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield and the recently released Glock 43.

The Shield, one of the better slim line options around when Glock debuted the .380 ACP Glock 42 in 2014, picked up a number of quick converts that the new G43 hoped to win back.

“In short, the Shield is the fitness model when she’s not competing and the Glock 43 is the fitness model in full competition mode. Personally, I’m torn—not between two fitness models, but over which gun I think is better ergonomically,” observes Noir.
