    This article in The Week from March 9 flipped this Glock 17, putting the slide release wrongly on the right. Ha! Silly layout artist!

    Either that's a one of a kind or someone flipped the pic. Much like Billy the Kid's ferrotype picture apparently showing that he was left handed but the loading gate is on the left side of the Winchester 1873 none of which existed. It's a mirror image photo.

    I'd take some left ejecting Glocks. I have a few left ejecting AR's and shotguns.

    Maybe the answer to the erratic ejections hitting people in the face?

    Only for left handed shooters I would think - the brass would just be missing their left ear?

    A right handed shooter shooting this special edition left handed Glock would be getting hit above his left eye...

    I see layout "artists" flipping photos of military personnel for esthetic purposes - and end up putting ribbons, patches, etc on the wrong side of the uniform. Or military saluting with their left hand. Clearly non-vets. Irks me!

    Disclaimer: Yes, some of the services are allowed to salute with their left hand IF the right is incapacitated or being used in such a way that they would only have the left to salute.
