Not to dig on Glock or to put to fine a point on it but haven't sales of anything with a trigger skyrocketed in the last 2 years.

To a point they did just after the election, but people soon ran out of money and credit, and sales have fallen flat. I use Cabela's as a sales barometer because they move a lot of firearms, or used to. Not anymore. Sales are very sluggish. The Hussein fear factor has died off. People are more concerned about losing their homes than they are about buying guns.

With that said Glock's continue to move like hotcakes. They are affordable, accurate, easy to operate, as well as very concealable. A 70% sales increase in this economy says a lot. Glock has exceeded that. Many gun companies are in trouble. Bill T.

I posted it in another thread, but will do it again here.

ATF just chose Gen4 G22's for their issue weapon. They put out a competitive bid to all the manufacturers, and did a 20,000 rd torture test. The Gen 4 G22 won, hands down.

I'm not even a .40S&W fan, but that's a hell of a testing regimen.

This better answers that question, and puts everything into proportion. Bill T.

Here is the link to The Shooting Wire story (I hope).

Shooting Wire

I'm sure the details of the testing are posted somewhere.
