    Yup. Nothing more than an ad, little different than buying the car will get you the guy/girl, or slurping the latte will make you hip. It's not intended to be an example of good tactics, at all. It's intended to get the underlying message to the intended audience. And you can't send the message when the audience has tuned out from the start.

    For a general-audience ad, IMO this no-shoot type rendition is far better than flooding the audio with sounds of gunfire, showing a bloody perp on the deck, and other stereotypical ties to those heinous, evil black guns. Smart, I'd say.

    It's a commercial, not a training video. If the target audience is women home alone, I'd say it was pretty effective.

    In Clint Smith's hands, he himself would probably faint ... uh, being a 1911 guy.

    No two ways about it, though: having an effective means of self-defense at the opportune moment is better than having nothing but the television remote in your mitts. Even better if it's combined with decent training.

    Poor SA and preparation on her part. The gun should have been on her hip in the first place, and if not, she should have gotten it after the first knock, not the third. Guess Glock is inferring you can't be pretty and smart both.
