    Iohman,

    Why the interest in the Gen 1 Glocks after reading the book? Just curious because I carry a Glock 17 that was imported in June 1986. I keep thinking I should put it up and get a newer model to wear out on duty but it shoots way to good. I, too, attempt to scoop up any I find.

    Later

    Always had an interest in Glock 17 Gen 1, even prior to the book. I guess the book just sparked something in my brain to get a few more. I have three all two digit models with black parts.

    Finished the book today. I'm not sure that I still want to continue to own Glocks. Not a nice individual at all.

    If we didn't own products because the developer or profiteer is/was "not nice," we'd have to get rid of over half the products in our lives. I don't like a LOT of things about Henry Ford, but I own two vehicles with the blue oval on them. The bottom line is a lot of people who get to these positions/levels get there because they had the drive and ambition to get there. Sometimes that is their only character flaw, and sometimes there are quite a few other character flaws to go along with that one. The only perfect person is the one who hasn't honestly examined themselves, if you know what I mean.
