The silly choice for the name aside, I do want one. I'm lacking a .22 semi-auto handgun. If this holds up being reliable, it would be a fun gun to have.
I see any new quality 22 handgun as a good thing. I have an SR 22 that I paid close to $400 for and like it just fine. Possibly a lot of folks will see the Glock that way also. Especially Glock owners.
Now that I am home from work and had a chance to look at this new pistol, I am underwhelmed. It is good for Glock to offer a 22 but not with all this marketing hype leading up to it. For something this mundane, a regular press release would have sufficed. Now if Glock released it with a capacity similar to the Taurus or Kel-Tec .22 pistols, that would be really cool and worth the build-up. Lots of guys would want a 16 or so round pistol that is made by Glock and not Taurus or KT, myself included.
If the street price ends up at $400, that seems high to me. You can buy really nice metal .22 pistols in that price range. $350 or so is not bad.

While this is not the answer to my prayers, if I'm going to buy a 22 rimfire that mimics a "defensive" pistol I'll probably buy this before any of the other offerings as I do carry a Glock. I certainly don't have to have one right now but if it develops a solid reputation I could see myself buying one. I certainly don't hate the idea of a .22 rimfire glock.

god how disappointing. Like waiting for the annual release of the Call of Duty Franchise, and the Zombie games suck.

Now how about a Glock 93 in .22 mag?
I was born a gun owner, it wasn't a choice, I didn't become one later in life...I was born this way
I'd like to see a match up with a M&P .22LR.

Iíll be getting one. That said it wasnít the legendary release item I was hoping for. But same exact grip, trigger, sights, and controls as my carry gun. In a caliber thatís any were from a 5th-10th the cost of ammo my carry guns are chambered in.
I have 3 Glocks so I will wait to see what the 44 is like.
