I have been out 2 times now with the 43x and here are my observations. This is the first striker fired pistol i have ever shot. The last 9mm i owned and shot was a browning high power practical and that was 17 years ago. With that said - the 43x is pretty snappy but controllable. The trigger shoe is meh and tears up the finger after about 30 rounds. The grip angle feels good and it points naturally. I ran 115 grain CCI ball and 124 grain Fiocci Ball ammo. The CCI was horrible but those were the first rounds fired. The Fiocci shot great, i ran 20 rounds at 7 yards and 15 of those went into a tight cluster approx 1-1/2 inch and centered perfectly. The remaining 5 rounds were in the 8 and 9 ring, so that's me being out of shape shooting pistols. The gun carries great for appendix carry and i can sit in the car with seat belt on with no discomfort. I just ordered a new trigger bar and shoe from the Glock store so that should solve my dislike for the current trigger feel. All in all i really like this gun, it's light, simple, easy to operate and carries great.
