Default Glock G42

Is this gun CA legal? I think I read - NO.

The G42 is not on the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale in California, but it is not illegal to own one in California. It only means that you cannot buy one new from a dealer unless you are a LEO. You can always check yourself on the DOJ website, Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale - Firearms Division - California Dept. of Justice - Office of the Attorney General

The real question is why would you want one?

I would because I have almost every model of GLOCK made (not every generation of every model).

I would also, because I like quirky guns, and this looks pretty quirky to me!

But as a practical firearm for concealed carry, why not find a 9mm that is just as compact with better stopping power? I think the Ruger LC9 is about the same size. I would have to double check, but there must be others out there too.

Feel the same way, is see the glock 42 only being a gun a women or an old man would own. Don't really see a point for the .380 myself.

In addition...
The Glock 42 will never be listed on the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale; because it does not have a "chamber load indicator", "magazine disconnect mechanism" and "microstamping array". All of which are required on every semi-auto centerfire pistol submitted for testing since 05-17-2013.

The Glock 42 leads to the path of a single stack 9mm ....I may pick one up if I can do a SSE.

I have had a Glock 23 since 1992. It has never failed to go bang. Since getting my CCW I have got a Kahr P380 and a Kahr CW9. Both are much more concealable then the Glock. All are on my CCW. Hard to beat the concealability of my P380, but it has had its issues with jams. My CW9 has had one misfire in 500 rounds. Bottom line, the Glock is realible, and a fair price. All that said, the new Glock is not CA legal, so I will be well served by my two Kahrs, and Glock 40 when needed.

Got a G42 and it is a great mini Glock. Yes, not a 9 mm, but a great gun and 100% Glock reliable. I now have my Kahr 9 for sale. I still plan to keep my P380 due to its size. That said, I would trust my life better to my Glocks. No issue registering the G42 on my license, also registered my Ruger Single Six just because. All legal

Stoping power! Hate to tell you but there is no such thing . Shot placement yes. I just bought a G42 I have 9 more days till I pick it up. Then my Sig P938

I have been thinking about a G42 for my wife, but heard they are having a lot of problems. She shoots 9 and 40 but doesn't like to. Hoping she would enjoy shooting it.

Well, my SIG P238 (.380) has more stopping power, holstered and in my pocket, than my S&W .45 has sitting in the Safe at home!!!

Different guns for different occasions!!! Any CCW handgun that you carry consistently/every day, is better than the biggest caliber handgun you have, sitting home in the safe while you're out and about.

My S&W .45 is for H/D and my 9mm & .40 are in my CCW rotation.

First outing with my G42 was 100%. I had rounds that my P380 failed to fire (firing pin indent, but no fire), get sucked up with the Glock. Seems very reliable as my other 22 years old Glock has been.

All that said, it is hard to beat the size of the P380. It is very reliable with the right ammo. I still trust the Glock more, but what you have in your pocket is what matters. The G23 is usually at home, ready, unless out hiking or camping
