    Thanks, but just because we don't agree with you it doesn't mean
    we think you are drunk.:whistling:

    So good infact, that they've been relegated to niche cartridges below even the 10mm in popularity?

    I can remember when .38 Super was the shiznit for bowling pin shoots.
    When the .45 Super came out a few people started using it, but
    it was quickly deemed unusable because it tore the pins up so bad
    that quite a few were rendered junk after only 1 or 2 hits. Now
    those were interesting times in Georgia.

    (I still have 2 Colt .38 Supers, 2 Springfield Armory .38 Supers, and a
    Springfield V16 longslide in .45 Super). Just ordered a ported barrel
    for a G21 to be able to shoot .45 Super.

    A carbine should be easy. I shot a G18 this week that was a full auto Glock lower fixed to a carbine upper.

    (Also a Kriss vector with Glock mags)

    That would be completely out of their business model which is gun manufacturing genius. Terribly efficient working off the same platform.

    I believe when the world wanted a single stack, full sized .45acp and Gaston chose to give us the GAP instead, they proved that they do listen. They respond with FU, but they do listen. :supergrin:

    There are plenty of Glock customers who are very happy with those releases. You will never please everyone.

    What do you expect Glock to bring to the over saturated long gun market? A contractor made AR with their logo on it? A pistol caliber upper you could fit on a Glock lower? Glock has no business in the long gun market.

    Since we're asking, put me down for a .45 ACP with identical external dimensions to a 19/23.

    But I suspect a big reason why Glock has remained successful is because they do a limited number of things and do them well.

    Dear Gaston Glock:

    Please don't do that. My website would have almost no traffic.

    But if you must - make it a two drink minimum.

    Signed,

    Eric.
