You got me Dean; it's all there. I read that thread, but apparently missed that link.

Your marvelous memory has prevailed again.

Color me disappointed with the clues, Dean, but I followed that link and it's a lengthy, speculation-ridden thread on on 80K Glocks going missing from the Iraqi police forces.

A peripheral mention of the "strange and violent" Herr Glock brought minimal comment. There was more discussion of the "Panama" betrayer and a single mention of self-defense.

Pardon me for not wanting to ferret out every link in that older thread. Clicking the link you posted brought me to your 22 Oct 2007 12:26 post about gas prices, of all things. The useful link regarding the Forbes article is five posts above.

Some days I just feel like nit-picking.

Tha's all right... the point was that it was v-e-r-y old news, and the critical reader of the Forbes piece should be able to discern that, even with the references to Herr Glocks putative neo-National Socialist associations, it's more of a paean to the legend of the man than the type of profile one might expect from that periodical.

I mean, Gaston's a wiry li'l guy, but prevailing in hand-to-hand combat with a younger 6'7" former Legionaire and professional wrestler?

That, and ... what I found most interesting, though not surprising, was how his "my way or the highway", management style extends even to his own kids. It sadly reflects why the company started with a great burst of innovation and then just sat down and declared perfection.

On a high note. Glock, Inc. did have startling news at the S.H.O.T. Show this weekend. With a drum roll and a red carpet they unveiled their new Glock Model 22. It had a different texture on the grip frame and different shaped serrations on the rear of the slide. The crowd went crazy, women were fainting in the aisles and free guns were flying into the hands of gun magazine publishers for cover stories.

I would also suspect that Master Glock had to be tied up and tortured before he would agree to these drastic changes.

Yeah, but did they fix what's wrong on the inside?

Ha!

What I did do that was fun was going by the Glock booth several times when they were crowded and yelled to a friend of mine who is "up there", "Hey ---, is the carbine still in the back. I want to show it to my friend." Got a lot of head turns on that.

That's cruel. Kinda like faking a throw to a dog, and laughing when he "chases" it. You know it will get him every time, but you shouldn't take pride in it.

"Hey, did you see the single-stack .45ACP?"

Actually, for the full frenzy effect, it should be:

Didja see Glock's really neat entry into the 1911-market?
That would have caused the biggest mob scene at a Glock display since Sharon "The Hottest 10 in Town" Dillon's top fell down in Dallas!

Alas, a SHOT show I missed.

but now I never turn down a chance to visit with my closest 45,000 friends, and pick up the latest rhinovirus mutation.

Good times, with the exception of drawing perhaps the most butt ugly rental car on the planet, the POS Cruiser. Got a chance to chat some with Dean Caputo; I'm still not sure how he grokked my belt for a Mitch Rosen. They all look pretty much alike to me. The ride back into Dulles was amusing; it was full of Obots on their way to the Inadequation. Flying with a firearm was mostly without drama, although there still appears to be some confusion amongst the airline peeps as to process.
