I'm going to lose my Conservative Blogger street cred if I don't start posting about guns. So here goes...
What is it with Glock? (AKA "The Austrian Face Grenade")
Is it such a superior handgun?
The action is 'clunky', way too heavy for such a lightweight plastic (Ahem, sorry...Polymer) frame.
The grip angle is all wrong. Admittedly, this is a personal preference thing, but I'm on a roll here.
Can it fire your favorite +P++, sooper-dooper tactical nuclear handgun bullets? Not if you want it to stay in one piece...along with your hand, by the way
Who came up with the idea "Supporting this portion of the cartridge casing just isn't that important"?
And don't even get me started about the 'trigger safety', what a joke...Do I need to embed that "I'm the only one professional enough" video? Sorry, the cringe factor is just too much on that one.
So, what is it?
It's advertising...that's all.
For instance, let's take a look at Budweiser...
Is it packed with full-bodied flavor, with a mild citrus aftertaste? No....
Is it brewed in a secret location in the Alps? Stirred by the feet of Bavarian virgin milkmaids? Not quite.....
In fact, it's what many beer aficionados refer to as....wait for it....
But who doesn't like those cool horses?
Every time I see them in a commercial, I want to run out and pound down a six-pack of that awesome all-American brew. Yum!
I can brew better grog in my basement. I know lots of people who do just that, but Anheuser-Busch is raking in obscene amounts of money selling that swill.
Stop wasting your money. Buy a Ruger, and with what you save, you can get a home brewery for your basement.
Hat Tip to The Gun Zone for the awesome pics. Go check out their Glock kB! FAQ page.
