Are you just a casual user of this forum, or are you a real Glock shooter?!?

Consider the G36.

Unless you meant 'full sized', but that's not what you said.

Interesting to see they haven't made their "big" announcement yet. They are most probably shocked that the idea of Glock ID is not receiving a warm welcome. They either figure the ungrateful masses don't appreciate their efforts, or they are trying to dust off something from the marketing departments file of dead ideas to come up with.

Read between the lines, they just said it was not "Just" a forum...

Which means that it IS another forum.

Let me guarantee that is is "JUST" another forum which will be interactive, but that is ALL... NO NEW GUNS.

Sounds to me like it's a forum plus something else.

They just updated their FB page.

Glock quote from face book:

"You guys have been great, we are humbled with all the great effort and guesses to decode our message. The good news is that it's NOT just a forum. The bad news is that you'll need to wait just a little bit longer. We're adding something new that we think you'll love."

I remember about 18 years ago when I first entered the Marine Business there was a conversation between me and the owner/president of a large boat manufacturer. I was doing my damnest to convince him to build a certain style/model of boat. Finally after a rather short discussion the owner/president asked me how many Airplaines I had......end of discussion. Mr. Glock probably has an ego the size of Texas so you can't tell him ****!.

I thought GLOCK said they weren't going to produce the beavertail backstrap?

He said "slim" single stack .45. Compare the G36 to the XDs, and you'll see what slim means.

Yep. Well it doesn't sound that exciting to me.

Not just a forum could actually mean that it is still something forum-like but they consider it to be better than a forum

Yeah, I think they were surprised by the extreme underwhelm!

They're probably rushing to prepare ads and marketing materials for something else in their pipeline as we speak.

Probably something simple like the beavertail back straps. (Which I will buy for my Gen4 G17)

With ShotShow next week, any new models would be announced there, not on Facebook/Twitter.

Correct...as in:

It's not JUST a forum...it's a forum AND shwagg store! Answer questions! Earn points! Redeem points for cheap junk made in third-world sweat-shops! That's right, a forum where the only thing you'll hear is the kool-aide talk that makes Glock happy! All the joy of having no real freedom of speach combined with trinkets you're accustom to seeing on the mid-way of your county fair!
