(I still have not gone to the somewhat nearby rental range and shot a bunch of pistols to see which one I like best, so I might not even get a Glock/Glock 20, however, thought I'd pass this on.) I wrote Glock US and asked when their Gen4 Glock 20/29 would be released, and they promptly wrote me back (a good thing) and said they could not say, that Glock Austria made the call on that. So I looked around on Glock Austria's website, and the only e-mail address I could find was this Impressum@glock.com e-mail address. I figured what the heck, I'll try asking them. A few days after the auto-reply, I did end up getting a response (which after receiving it, and asking if I could share it, I received no reply), here it is: Thanks for your interest in our products and company. The G20 Gen4 is currently being tested and evaluated and are in the final stages for the launch. We have seen some very good results and therefore expect the launch within 1H2012 latest during the NRA Show. The G29 Gen4 is in the pipeline. Our sales subsidiary GLOCK Inc. will promote and communicate the pistol launch accordingly. Our recommendation would be to wait with your purchase. We hope the information is sufficient and thank you for your support. Best regards, GLOCK Ges.m.b.H. So for those waiting on the Gen4 Glock 20's (as I am if I like the way the Glock 21 shoots over anything else I try), it sounds like they're getting close to release. Chuck Wanna kill these ads?
