Well i shoot just as well with a M&P Shield as I do with a glock 19. Reaching for something is reaching for something. (Bag, glove box, vest, foot rest) I think the foot rest idea sucks while riding sure but when stopped just the same IMO.The floorboard model that was mentioned also appears to be photo shopped. Theres no way a full or mid sized semi auto will fit in a floor board with all the protective foam they show in the pic. Plus, if it is real, its a completely useless product IMO. If you need that piece in a hurry, it aint happening.
The gun holster from Captain Itch would be a good option to store your gun in states that you ride through that don’t honor your CCW permit.
I shot the 43 and really didn't care for it. It seemed to have a little too much recoil. Several other guys I know said the same thing. I think Glock tried to put the 9mm punch into such a light package, with a heavy trigger pull, and it just ain't working for me. The 42, on the other hand, has the same trigger pull but has very little recoil.I was more worried about the depth of the board being unrealistic for turning and such. I would leave them unlocked while riding.
Personally I'm getting a holster that attaches to the front saddle bag bolt/pin. Unless I get a better idea from someone or another source. Last gun shop wanted me to look at the 43. I'm sure I'll go thru a few models before having a fav. I try to hit the range and try diff models when I'm not buying bike parts lol.
