    I would like to see a Glock in .22 LR or .22 magnum, but I doubt it will happen. Glock makes tooooo much money from law enforcement sales, where is a .22 gonna fit in there?????????:(

    Since it's part of their official survey, someone must be thinking about it.;Q

    It would give Walther's P22 a run for the money,and get kids involved in GSSF competition.;)

    Do you think the plates will go down from a.22???What about the poppers, I guess it would be ring and paint!!!

    There is a need in L.E. for a .22, especially if it were a .22 cal. top half, highly reduced practice costs with the same trigger pull as your duty weapon, even if the recoil wasen't exactly the same.Yes and I'm aware that there are top halfs already out there, but maybe they would be cheaper if they were produced by Glock themselves.

    thx for the heads up

    under hot topics

    http://www.gssfonline.com/index2.htm

    i have been thinking about getting a 22 conversion (advantage arms) for quite a while now...... im gonna wait and see what glock has in mind

    not sure if id prefer a conversion or the entire pistol..... depends on how much price difference there is

    $450 for a 22 rimfire..... might be a little hard to handle

    $200 for a conversion kit - thats below the "wife needs to know" threshold

    Plates will usually go down okay. Poppers are another story.

    Tom, Please let me clarify, I was refering to the fact that the individual officer might practice more on his/her own time if the ammunition costs were reduced.

    That was exactly my point,reduce the cost and MAYBE we could get them to practice,because your correct, those of us who do are rare.
