I have read it twice. Interesting book. Makes glock look like a lucky genius and also a jerk. All that aside, he thought outside the box and won.
Injection molded frame...$0.05 to produce. Metal frame handguns at the time cost over $100 to produce.I have the book in audio format. I appreciated the detailed back story on Glock history and how their marketing strategy in the US law enforcement community lead to such dominance. Still pretty surprising given the opportunity Smith and Wesson and others had with law enforcement for so many years.

Think it was the St. Paul MN dept. ...Injection molded frame...$0.05 to produce. Metal frame handguns at the time cost over $100 to produce.
Nobody could compete with that...
As long as it worked (which it did...).
Remind me...what was the 1st US Law Enforcement agency to choose the Glock?
I think I remember that, too, but I don't have time to search for it.IIRC Paul Barrett posted here at one time.
Atlanta is the 90’s was sort of like Miami in the 80’s, San Fran in the 70’s and Chicago in the 30’s. Fast growth, money flowing in, more than a bit shady, and just the right place to be. :dancing:Funny that the strippers at the Atlanta Club would drop everything when the Glock guys rolled in with potential clients....
