Pass.  I might be interested in a couple years once they work out all the 1st-run bugs... when they're cheap because the market is flooded with them and everyone loses interest after the next cool new thing comes out.  I'd rather have something proven and there are plenty of small proven guns.

It's about time.  I will try to get a couple when they show up local.  Heard MSRP is 580 but that blue label will be just over 350 and street price will be around 450.  Time to sell off a 40 cal or 2 to fund some new g43 goodness :)

Yes, they do exist.  There will, in fact, be demo pistols in Nashville during NRAAM

GunLink has plans to not only check them out and get more info during the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits, but also to get some trigger time behind the single-stack 9mm G43.

I got to shoot the G43 yesterday before the NRAAM. I was actually very impressed with it. As a female with smaller hands, this fit wonderfully in my hand: the slide was extremely easy to manipulate, the trigger pull was just right, but I did prefer it with the pinky extension on the magazine. It's also small enough that I think I could carry it on my belt without worrying about the weight pulling on my pants.

Shooting it was very nice as well. The recoil was very manageable and I felt like it shot where I was aiming, which is something I usually have problems with on the smaller handguns. I even tried a couple with my most common mistake, not holding it properly in the web of my hand, it did pull high left, but still on the target. A tried a couple limp wristed as well and I didn't have any problems with the pistol cycling to the next round.

All in all, this was the first pistol that I have handled that I thought it was comfortable enough that I could carry it.

Our LGS always has 42s in stock and gets 43s in pretty often and they sit for a few days before selling.  I don't know if they aren't that popular or if they're just making huge numbers of them.  For a small 9mm, the 43 doesn't really do it for me.
