Testing a New EDC Handgun: My Approach
In a video posted by Lucas of T.REX ARMS, he tests out a new carry gun, the Glock 43X MOS, against a weapon of a more civilized era, the 1911 from Michael Weston’s Burn Notice. The objective of the test is to see how different weapons of varying ages compare to each other.
In the video, Lucas tests both weapons by performing various drills, such as zeroing, 25-meter work, sub-second draws, and the two-target bill drill. He also performs the XRAY Alpha Drill and a USPSA-style stage.
Lucas talks about the biggest difference between both guns, stating that the 1911 has a single-action trigger, which is lighter and crisper, while the Glock 43X MOS has a striker-fired trigger, which is more robust and reliable.
In addition, he talks about the Instagram Drill and how people’s guns malfunction more than they admit. Lucas highlights the importance of testing the same gun multiple times to understand its consistency and reliability over time.
Towards the end of the video, Lucas shares his holster and what’s next in terms of testing his new carry gun.
Overall, the video provides an informative and fun perspective on comparing weapons of two different eras and how they perform in various situations.
