    With the 15rd mags, itís the only gun I carry off duty. It is also my grab gun in the car on duty.

    The James Yeager video is typical James Yeager. Not worth watching.
    Can't get any better testimonial than this. I know there are quite a number of people that have put a lot of rounds thru the Shield mags without reporting any major issues.

    I like seeing reports like this. By the time I get around to picking some up they should have any bugs worked out and a good supply available. Kind of learned my lesson about being the first in line for a new product to come on the market. Kind of.

    I bought my 43 before the 43X came out, so I can't compare the two. I have 4 mags with the +2 extensions, they all function fine.
    I bought mine mainly for church carry, where concealment was the main priority. As far as reliability, I've got no complaints

    Went to the range today. Shot the G43, decided to keep it. While I was out, I lucked out and picked up a Glock 45.

    Thatís funny. I am thinking about selling my Glock 45. With 15rds in the 43x, I have no need for it. They are great guns though.

    I EDC the 43x. I had a 43, it was a great gun and a welcome upgrade from the 42. The 43x grip fits me better than the 43, and it gives me increased confidence.

    I put about 400 rounds through the 48 yesterday using my three Shield Arms mags. I had failure to eject, but I'm pretty sure that was due to shooting under a barricade in long grass.

    That's not enough rounds for me to start carrying the 48 yet with the Shield mags (It has around 700 through it now), but I really like it.
