Return of Glock Shooting Sports?

I like my Glocks ... a LOT, but I wish they would drop the whole Perfection marketing. At best it's arrogant and at worst it's just dishonest. I'd much rather they'd return to the old Glock Shooting Sports marketing logo on their clothing and gifts/accessories.

I'm pretty sure none of us are on this website because Glock is in the business of marketing an 'idea'. They make firearms. I know that'll come as a shock to some people, but there it is. Claiming otherwise is playing a bit too Clinton/Obama-esque with words.
I'm pretty sure I never claimed Glock Shooting Sports predated Glock Perfection, but let me reread my post and double check. Uhmmm ... nope. I say old because the items they used to market are no longer available except for the low crown hat.
People can vary on their acceptance of a marketing plan (my personal favorite was the use of the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" for computers/programming). I prefer the active connotation of Shooting Sports probably because I've been an athlete most of my life.
Glock has a durable and dependable product, but perfection?

So - all of us are wrong & you are right? I am glad you explained that for us.:kidding:

Let me re-read your post: Uhmmm.... yes, OLD predates new! :jumpingjacks:

Well, let's (once again) take a look at my original post. Did I say Perfection was a new marketing strategy? Uhmmm ... nope. Looks like you're wrong ... again.

While I agree the whole “Glock Perfection” is a bit sanctimonious, I do wear it proudly. Mainly to piss off my buddies and family who shoot Colts and Sigs.
Maybe Glock could go with something like:

Glock. Okay we may not actually be perfect, but we're a hell of a lot better than the Army's new Sig!

It may be a bit too long to fit on a T-shirt though. Just a thought.
