    but why does an ad for an XD-5.25 come up on a Glock site. I know it costs money to run the site but I could not imagine a Chevy site with a Ford banner on it! Blast away but it seems a little strange considering XD seems like the manufacturer that is the biggest competitior to Glock.

    Because people on GT own different brands of guns.

    The answer is sooooooooooooo simple; Because XD-5.25 pays to be on this site. If XD-5.25 paid "ENOUGH" money, Glock might put up an advertising banner at a meet/shoot. My mama once said to me that money was the root of all evil, and I said to her; "I've been so good"... Any questions???

    Yep. Springfield pays the rent, Glock does not.

    It's pretty ingenious on Spingfield's part, though.

    Most ads are content based, so they simply show the gun based ads that they were paid to show. They use keywords to figure out the content here and supply the ads.

    One of the reasons I like this site so much is because it covers all kinds of guns.

    On a side note the XD is not even close to competing with Glock. The M&P is a much closer competitor.

    The real reason is that XD was never a real competitor for Glock. Glock is waaaay better! :tongueout:

    Interesting concept: trashing a company that helps pay for the site you use to trash them on. :whistling:

    Maybe if you two ventured outside of General Glocking you would find the answer.
