    Good to know that these tiny little blips on the gun market do not escape observation an reporting here because "Enquiring minds want to know". Do me a favor and keep your eyes open for any development on theose new fangled double stack magazines they are experimenting with, They say it could lead to 9mms having 13 or more rounds in them at one time.

    Can we get an official M&P shield thread yet? Maybe post it in general glocking so more people will read about it and title the thread-"S&W M&P shield, one up's Glock" so it won't get deleted in GG. I would love to talk more about this pistol with people but the threads are scattered. The most admirable quality about this pistol aside from it's rugged and well though out design is S&W's dedication to the public consumer and their insistence of getting it on the market ASAP. With holsters and sights to boot! I think the time has finally come for Glock, and we may see the reprecussions of not listening to the customer demand consume the Glock flame once and for all. It's about time if you ask me. Glock has the luckiest advantage and position in the market today. Glock came around at the perfect time and as a result still dominates Law enforcement sales and I would imagine they dominate civilian sales as well. Glock is still regarded, although their reputation took a hit with Gen4, as the end all, definitive, quintessential combat pistol no that no other pistols can hold a flame to. I am against such biased thinking and I love to try different pistols. M&P is my favorite line of pistols aside from Glock's. If glock refuses to cater to the future, they will surely be relegated to the past.

    Yeah, and what a joke that is. Well we can't provide anything progressive, or at all different so, uh, erh, here you go, a new color! :faint:

    I know people love the FDE and green glock's but c'mon. That's the best they can do for their dedicated consumer's? Not only am I not impressed, but I'm kind of offended( or:steamed:). That just goes to show how little they care. They come out with something we can do ourselves at home! Great job Glock, thanks for caring.
