G42 offers the benefits of the Glock platform in a truly pocket-size pistol
Shooting Illustrated asked Duane A. Daiker to take a look at the latest from GLOCK: the G42 ...
Few handguns have been as highly anticipated as the single-stack Glock chambered in .380 ACP. This year, American consumers can finally benefit from an ultracompact deep-concealment pistol designed by the legendary Austrian company: the G42.
Undoubtedly, Glock was late to the party with a micro-size .380 ACP handgun. By the time Ruger introduced its LCP in 2008, the race to produce miniature .380 ACP pistols was well underway. Similar offerings appeared from most of the major manufacturers, and the “9 mm Kurz” was the hot pistol caliber for several years. Although Glock had models in most every popular semi-automatic chambering, a .380 ACP was noticeably absent from its lineup—at least in the United States. Glock actually has a double-stack .380 ACP available in overseas markets: the G25. U.S. law, however, prohibits domestic sale of the G25 due to import restrictions.

From GLOCK - More Area Wins for Team GLOCK on the Road to the GLOCK Sponsored USPSA Nationals
Smyrna, Georgia – Team GLOCK Captain KC Eusebio and Tori Nonaka competed in the last remaining Area Championships. They continue to ramp up for the USPSA Nationals that will be held September 24-28, 2014, in St George, UT.
The Area 4 Championship was held at the Old Fort Gun Club in Fort Smith, AR. In the 13-stage match, Nonaka shot a penalty free match to secure her High Lady title for the match. Nonaka commented, “I really enjoyed competing at Area 4. The match was well designed with no shoot targets and difficult shooting positions. I like the challenge of determining when to speed up orslow down depending on the difficulty level of the target."
The following week Team GLOCK advanced on to Dartmouth, MA, for the USPSA Area 7 match. The nine stage, 204+ roundcount match found Nonaka once again standing on the podium collecting yet another High Lady award, while Team Captain, KC Eusebio swooped in with an incredible performance to capture the OPEN title for the Northeastern Classic. “I was incredibly focused at this match. Everything came together as I attacked each of the stages. I was keenly aware of whom I was competing with and I worked a combination strategy of speed and accuracy to pull this win off,” commented Eusebio.
The Team will return to Georgia to train and prepare for the USPSA Nationals. Shooting tips from the Team can be viewed on the GLOCK website at us.glock.com/confidence/university.

From USA Shooting - National Champions Named in Men's Air Rifle and
Women's Three-Position Rifle
Fort Benning, Georgia -
Not only were titles, medals and bragging rights on the line, but for Junior shooters in these events, the chance to represent the United States at the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Championship in Granada, Spain
was also up for grabs.
Garrett Spurgeon (Canton, Missouri) claimed yet another National Title today by winning the Junior Men’s Air Rifle event.
Tim Sherry (Highlands Ranch. Colorado) once again claimed the silver and
Brandon Muske (Burton, Texas) won bronze.
Seems Spurgeon and Sherry are often atop the Junior Men’s Rifle podiums together. The pair has been gold/silver and vice versa since earlier this year when Spurgeon won gold and Sherry won silver in Men’s Three-Position Rifle at the
National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships (NJOSC). In Men’s Air Rifle at NJOSC, Sherry instead would win the gold.
At this National Championships, Spurgeon also won the Junior Men’s Three-Position Rifle title and silver in Junior Men’s Prone. Sherry took silver in Junior Men’s Three-Position Rifle and bronze in Junior Men’s Prone.
