It sucks that you had that experience, its really disappointing when you a fan of a product then get to work for them thinking it would would be "cool". I worked for a Glock LE dealer before and it was great although not directly under Glock. Met a few people who worked as Glock sales reps, said they weren't very happy working for Glock either.

However, they did follow the backstrap trend and beaver tail.

This from Glock on their facebook page yesterday:

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.

They're adding something new, at the last minute??

It's not a gun. It NOT just a forum, no. But it definitely ain't a gun, either.

When you're scrambling to cover one mistake you tend to make several more.

Makes me think we're not going to "love" it.

This thread is just like Glock, full of disappointment.

Glock is trying hard to unseat HK as the most consumer unfriendly gun company.

I had a dream that Glock came out and fixed the BTF issue. Then I woke up and they still haven't released the "big news".

I'm not sure that I've seen a bigger PR flop in a long time. I'm beginning to think that they don't care either.

Now if HK would just lower their price point, we could have a nice war between the manufacturers.
