    The Very First Glock

    Inasmuch as winter fast approaches, I needed two small shovels to throw in the trucks in the event of a snow or ice related "event" (e.g. getting stuck). I preferred small, lightweight, durable and folding type tools, and finally decided on a Glock Entrenchment Tool.



    It had the features I wanted:

    Spade, shovel, hoe and saw in one tool
    Spade can be locked in different positions
    Great for camping and backcountry use
    Stows in the included nylon pouch

    Glock's very first product was the Entrenchment Tool, so I have now acquired a tool with a proud history.

    Since I was buying two Glock shovels, I also bought a Glock Field knife while I was at it............



    I love it when my wife says "Sure".

    That's good IMO. Keep it Glock. Personally, I prefer 4wd and a heavy truck. To each his own I reckon. Winter.......I love it, and I'm in need of some snow this year! Any manual labor I'll be getting involved with getting out of a stuck situation will be shifting into low. Shovels are a thing of the past for me.

    Come on out to Colorado High Country! I got my 4X4 Suburban stuck, in low, full tanks, in the snow last week in my driveway. With new AT Snows all around.

    Hence, the new Glocks!

    A new winch may be in the works, but I always have a Jeep Wrangler 4X4 and chains for pulling.

    Air your tires down to 10psi in the snow. With mud tires, works like a charm. You'll never get stuck :)

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    +1. Airing down works wonders.

    Nice trenching tool.

    They'd be plastic and people would always complain of them being "blocky."

    I got lucky, I got both of those as freebees from a Glock rep many years ago. Iv'e dug many a car out of the sand on the beach with the E tool.
    Great trunk tools.

    And according to "Deadliest Warrior", they make a fine weapon as well.
