    I didn't know any of this and it just reinforces my dislike for the company and, by extension, the product.

    This bit, in particular, tweaks me: "Glock had a special disdain for his American employees"

    OK, fine. You don't like the nation that is the biggest single buyer of your over-hyped and over-rated product? There are, literally, dozens of other gun companies making products every bit as good, and often better, a great many of which are Domestic. Screw you Mr. Glock and the horse you rode in on. I'll buy an Indonesian or Central/South American made gun before I buy your Austrian brick of metal and plastic.

    Peace favor your sword,

    I have heard that H&K has a particular disdain for their customers. Nevertheless, everyone who can afford one, wants one. They're kind of like the soup Nazis of the gun industry. Instead of, "No soup for you!" it's "No gun for you!" But like the soup Nazi's product, people line up to take the abuse because it's just a part of the cost of getting something that is just that good.

    Drifted from the rails in record time!

    H&K customer service sucks. We dont use them for that reason. Other departments have bought them and can not get parts (free) like they stated when the departments bought them. They are now getting rid of them.

  11. Every time I hear of this sort of carp from Glock, it almost makes me want to sell mine. I really wish I had bought S&W instead, but now I would have to change holsters. I bought Glock because of the price cut I got, but in the long run a SD40 would have been less without a discount. IMO the only thing the glock has on a SD40 is more holster choices. And an M&P has just as much, or more going for it than the glock.

    I do like my glocks, but I am not a fanboi by any means. I will never buy another one. On the up side I picked up a police trade in a LGS, a 38spl GP100, I paid too much though. But I wanted it and couldn't resist even though I could have got a new one for a 100 bucks more through Buds.

    I guess I should have added a :p to my post. Didn't the overuse of contractions indicate that I was being facetious?

    I heard that S&W paid Jannuzzo to say all of that so that they could gain more ground against Glock...

    Sounds like Januzzo had reason to say it without being 'goaded' by S&W...

    Sometimes, a clean, utilitarian appearance has a special beauty of its own. They look pretty nice to me.
