    influenced you at all to buy one?

    I have thought often how nice it is to be able to drive to the HQ for service without shipping hassle, etc.

    Just curious.

    No, it didn't. It's kind of cool though. My mom was born and raised there, and we used to go to Georgia every Summer as kids but, the location had nothing to do with my decision to buy one. It was more of how it felt in my hand and how it shot for me.

    No. It was Glock's reputation that sold me and still is.

    +1 to that.

    But it also doesn't hurt that Glock is not that far away from me.

    No, I was sold on Glock's in 1997 by the various reviews in the Gun Magazines. I have, however, used it as the final nudge to sell a couple of other people on Glocks.

    No, didn't matter one bit to me. It was handy though when I wanted a heavier trigger installed on a G23, I just drove over there and waited...

    I purchased my first Glock in February of 1987 when the only model was a G17 and they were all made in Austria. So I guess that's a no.

    Nice to have in town. Also nice to go to Armorers School back in the 1990's while selling them out in Gwinnett County. Love my new G19 just purchased, also have a G21 and G35. No problems with parts or broken parts....

    You don't hear that every day.

    It did not influence my decision at all. The quality and features of their products take all the credit.

    nope, it was their quality/reliability that sold me.

    No, I lived in Savannah when I bought my first Glock. Pretty long way from Smyrna. But now I live close enough to take the AC at Smyrna next month. That will be nice.

    Not a GA resident. I'll add that it's nice that they are located in a relatively gun friendly state. Beretta is in Maryland, S&W in Mass. :moonie:

    The fact that it is a Georgia product actually did help me get my Glock. I was torn between the G23 or a pretty Kimber 1911, Thankfully I looked more at reliability and function over good looks.

    I had no Idea that you could go up to Smyrna and get it reworked. I would like to get a Lighter trigger on mine.
