That will require some thought.......Nope! JMB was an inventor, a designer, and an innovator.

In all truth, he didn't actually design the Glock, as that task was left to his employees. He merely paid for someone else to develop it and put his name on it as intellectual property of the company. Gaston did pretty well, business wise, but will never be on the same level as John M. Browning.
The best defense is a good offense, and I'm really offensive.
