    Just saw a Glock commercial on AMC...

    Only firearms commercials I recall were for Henry rifles, late at night, (and I am caught by them every time )...is this new or have I been blind to this commercialized, well stated, and pro-gun prime time airwaves access?

    the only gun commercials I remember seeing were usually shown during gun shows on TNN or the Outdoor Channel. generally they were narrated by Jim Scouten & had production quality comparable to commercials for the local gas station.

    No...this was a smartly crafted, quality presentation, of the smooth operation of a compact Glock in the hands of an attractive lady...wish I could see it again as I was caught by surprise.

    Outside of the outdoor channel I've never seen a gun commercial. AMC? Don't they show Walking Dead on that channel? They are trying to appeal to the "zombie killers"

    And you did not think that "Sons of Guns" or "Wild West Guns" were not commercials?

    Seriously, consider how close of a relationship each TV channel has with Oprah, Rosie, Michael Moore, and Mickey Mouse.

    Dern, I miss Elmer Fudd.

    I saw a number of Glock commercials made by R Lee Ermey, but they were on you-boob.

    Thanks for the links...
    The G42 commercial is the one I saw. Watching again it is QUITE well made!
    Was just unexpected to see on that channel.

    Glock has a new commercial that is slap in the face to anyone who has ever had to us a gun to defend themselves or others. It shows a 'hot' girl pointing her 'glock' at an intruder and he simply 'pass out'. This is the stupidest bunch of PC BS I have ever seen. I would like to see every realistic/responsible gun owner boycott glock until they pull the add and apologize to the responsible gun owners.:mad:

    yeah that ain't gonna happen. no one will boycott them & Glock won't pull the ad & apologize.

    they're just playing the marketing game like every company that doesn't sell guns. want to sell to a new type of consumer? you need different marketing than the competitors. right now the thought is serious commercials don't get people talking & sell products, funny light-hearted ones do.

    if i boycotted every company that made a stupid commercial, my house would be empty & i wouldn't own a car.
