    I went to the site - you have to be able to get to North Carolina on August 26 if you win. They'll announce the winner on the 25th. That's B.S. I figure. If they offered to fly me out there, sure I would register. As it stands now, it's all but useless to me.

    Arg... useless.

    I hear what you are saying, but they have to be hitting up against a sales wall now with everyone who's wanted a Glock already having one.

    I bet when they saw their sales skyrocket after releasing the 42 and 43, they are just chomping at the bit to release something new again and see sales rise again.

    New "models" are the cornerstone of today's marketing/sales teams.

    No finger grooves, iron sights, and front slide serrations. What they didn't address is the grip angle, and of which, i have a gripe!

    Oh certainly, every company sees an eventual decline or at least a stable line on their products. Glock needs to do something new, but I don't think a radical departure from Glock as we know it is wise move. The problem is, what is just enough change to garner interest without getting too radical and having the complete opposite effect on buyers than you intended? To me, no grooves again is a great start. The grooves don't bother me, but a groove-less front strap fits everyone. Keeping the drop in the bucket sight, but never using plastic again is another great start. Nobody is going to complain about that and it changes nothing except adding durability.

    Ruger already makes a plastic revolver AND it is ugly so they kinda stole Glock's thunder on that one.

    Maybe - it isn't going to sway me. But perhaps.

    Much like the Springfield Armory "Saint", I WAS (semi-)excited until I finally saw one & realized it was just another direct-impingement AR...for $900 msrp. It must have been the grimy, curvy, girly model with great abs that launched my fantasy.

    We've got the LCR and we've got the Rhino (radical design), but I bet if Glock put their minds to it they could come up with something that is "Glock-like" in a revolver. It doesn't look like it hurt Kimber to jump into heavy snubbies.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 229 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
