No other sin­gle in­di­vid­ual in mod­ern times has shaped the tac­ti­cal hand­gun world more than Gas­ton Glock. His util­i­tar­ian sidearms in­tro­duced the planet to the poly­mer pis­tol frame and striker-fired trig­ger. Now, deep into the In­for­ma­tion Age, Glock hand­guns are avail­able in myr­iad shapes, sizes and cal­ibers.

Glock was a bit late hop­ping aboard the .380ACP pocket pis­tol train, but its G42 shrinks all that is good about full-sized Glock ser­vice pis­tols to some­thing that will ride com­fort­ably in your pocket. The mag­a­zine holds six rounds, and the trig­ger is the same 5.5-pound Safe Ac­tion mech­a­nism found on other stan­dard Glock pis­tols.

Laser­max built its busi­ness around se­ri­ous laser and il­lu­mi­na­tion ac­ces­sories for tac­ti­cal firearms. This com­pany’s guide rod lasers re­place the guide rods of your fa­vorite tac­ti­cal pis­tols at lit­er­ally no penalty in weight and bulk. The white light mo­d­ule these lasers pro­duce for the G42 wraps around the gun as if it were born there.

The Laser­max G42 weapon light melts around the host pis­tol to dis­solve any pesky corners. It sports a re­coil-proof, 115-lu­men LED white light that is se­lectable be­tween “con­stant on” and “strobe” func­tions. The in­tu­itive tap on/tap off switch is easy to use, even when stressed, and the light uses pow­er­ful lithium CR-2 bat­ter­ies. The re­sult­ing com­bi­na­tion of­fers room-clear­ing, low-light flex­i­bil­ity—all in a pack­age that will ride com­fort­ably in­side the front pocket of your jeans.
