A Glock 43 is a small EDC pistol and a new entry to the market that’s trending right now. The subtle pistol means you can carry larger implements elsewhere. Throw the knife in one pocket, a small flashlight in the other, the baton on your belt, and have the tool in your wallet, while the key chain could easily appear to be “just a bottle opener.” Throw on a survival paracord bracelet, some reliable shades and you’re good to go. Geared more toward an intermediate to experienced carrier, you’re practically an unnoticeable one-man arsenal.
