    Has anyone else recently received an email asking them to take a survey about firearms? The message said it would tell you after completing the survey who was behind it. IMO, it was incredibly invasive, but being curious, and having nothing to hide, I answered its bazillion questions (down to details about number and type of firearms I own!).

    At the end, it claimed to have been commissioned by Glock, and that I'd get an email from Glock now that I've completed the survey. No such email has arrived yet...but it's Friday evening, and maybe it's not automated...or maybe it really wasn't from Glock.

    I'm curious if anyone here with GSSF's ear can find out if this was legit or something else gathering data, posing as Glock.

    The message came from:

    I doubt seriously that it is in any way connected with Glock.

    Well...if possible, I'd like to get actual confirmation that it was or was not...before I release the hounds on the survey sender.

    Well, give Glock a call Monday morning, 1-770-432-1202. I guess the department you want is customer service.

    Let us know what you find out. You never know it might have been some anti-gun political crap looking for things to bash gun owners for. I know that sounds paranoid but we do have a democrat in the Whitehouse and after all its election time again. I agree with Danny, I highly doubt it was anything to do with Glock. We ALL own alot of Glocks so I would think they would have contacted someone else here as well.

    That's part of why I posted in the GSSF section. AFAIK, the only way Glock would have my email address would be via my GSSF membership...so I figured if the survey really was from Glock, someone else who reads here would have received it.

    I got the e-mail - but hate surveys so I deleted it.

    It was still in my trash; got it at 12:48 PM today.

    I have this same survey sitting in my inbox. Date/time stamp says it arrived at 12:49 today. I think I will leave it there,unopened, until I see what you find out about it's origin and validity. :dunno:

    Interesting. I havent received that one but I have gotten 2 for "single stage press survey" in the last week. To much spam and junk going around.

    I got it at 11:48 a.m. CDT today but deleted it. I felt I should know up front who the survey was about.

    Glock has had my E-mail address since 1996 and I have not received one. Perhaps GlockTalk also has your E-mail address.

    I got it a few days ago and deleted it. Sounded kind of fishy to me!

    It was from "Research Inc" to.

    I got it Friday too, but also threw it in the junk file....the 'you tell us everything and then we'll tell you who we are' thing was the deciding factor for me.

    I recieved it yesterday, I completed it and sent it in. At the end it said it was put on by Glock, and that i would be receiving a 25% off coupon towards a purchase of Team Glock merchandise on their website.
