    Hi all, I'm in Atlanta for the day and wondering if there's any reason to visit the HQ in Smyrna? Anything to see? Don't need any repair or anything. Just wondering...

    Thanks

    All you will see is the guard at the gate and the lobby. No tours available to the public. You may enjoy a trip to Ed's Public Safety a whole lot more.

    Danny, how far away from the Glock plant is Ed's? I am cruising thru in June and usually use the outer loop to go around Atlanta but if Ed's is close anywhere off the interstate then I may try it. Also, what are their hours? Thanks..

    +1 to Danny's reply. I went to Smyrna last week to get night sights put on. And (sadly) there's nothing you will see besides watching glock videos in the lobby, with no windows looking in the building just outside.

    But when I did go I was able to grab a Glock 2012 annual before they were mailed out...

    They are literally the opposite sides of Atlanta. The glock plant is off 285 in Smyrna but eds is 15 miles south of 285.

    Wow Glock bought up a bunch of property behind their facility in the past few years.
