Just got the latest issue of American Handgunner. Page 27 shows R. Lee Ermey wearing a Glock shirt and hat and holding a Glock pistol. Is nothing sacred? What self-respecting Jarhead would peddle Glocks, for pete's sake? I'll bet JMB is pissed.

(Same issue, page 51, center of page -- hubba, hubba)

GunWares,

I thought the same damn thing when I saw him at the SHOT show in Vegas at the Glock Booth. I at least thought he would be at the Springfield booth. Somethings not right about that.

He kissed a guy in a movie. I think he has a pretty strong mercenary bent.

I'm still not going to own a Gl..... just can't bring myself to say the word.

I bet JMB is saying "Geez folks, if you want religion, pick up a Bible. I ONLY made a gun, which has been surpassed in technology for some 30 years now."

(which is NOT to say I'm a glock fan)

The Gunny's been a Glock spokesman since at least fall of 2004, I saw him at an Army convention manning the Glock booth and signing 8x10 glossies for anyone willing to wait in line.

His comment on that scene was that $100k bought a hell of a lot of mouthwash.

He had a Glock Rep on his History Channel show showing off the full auto glock among others. Shouldn't be a suprise.

I dare say their ain't a 1911 religionist alive that would NOT take a FA Glock if one was offerred them.

Maybe he thinks GLOCKs are an excellent weapon.

Nothing wrong with Glocks. I have 2 and I also have 1911s, neither of my glocks have ever jammed or failed even when filthy. The 1911s on the other hand have. They aren't clunkers by any means but the glocks are 100%.

I don't see anything wrong with the Gunny giving Glock some recognition. They are good pistols, and so are 1911s. I have owned both (naturally), and I would bet many of us here would do the same thing if we were in his position, provided it was a weapon we had confidence in.

Saw him at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas and also the NRA Convention in Houston, in the Glock booth.

There were lines about 200 feet long to shake his hand and get a picture and an autograph. He seemed to be a great guy.

And if Glock would pay me the bucks they pay him, I'd be a willing hand-shaker too.

From what I can tell, it was just a movie stunt with CGI and stuff like that..............

Ask the Gloffies - they've got pics where he "came out" () against TRG!!!

Indeed. He NEVER should have done that - it ruins his whole image.

Your post also reminds me of a new thread I've been meaning to post.

Nah I just don't like glocks, they don't feel right in the hand. But thats just me. Glocks suck, even though I shot one better than I shoot most pistols(but still not better than my Baby Eagle). Just not comfortable.
Link Posted: 5/20/2005 6:29:17 AM EDT
To each his own.
I'm a 1911 fan personally, but Glock makes a good pistol.
It's hard to argue with their reliability.
The Gunny is still tops in my book, it's not like he's peddling Hi-Points.

As it is, the Glock is an excellent pistol.

I got 2 autographed pics from Gunny at the NRA convention, (1 for me 1 for my daughter)
They are pics of him holding a glock with glock shirt and hat.
But he also autographed my copy of Mail Call.

He is the poster boy for Glock at their shows, I have no problem with it.
Man has to make a living


ETA Not a glock fan at all, I prefer my Sig
Link Posted: 5/20/2005 6:33:00 AM EDT
I am not a Glock fan, but hell they are reliable and if they fit your hand then they are a good gun. I may own a glock one of these days, but right now I really like my Sig

Horseshit. Not one of my 4 Glocks has EVER had a FTF, FTE, FTRTB, etc. etc. etc. I've never owned a 1911 that I DIDN'T have to tweak in one way or another.......give it 500 rounds to break in, yadda yadda.......check the extracter, yadda yadda.........get a different recoil spring, yadda yadda yadda......switch out the hammer/bob it so it don't bite, more yadda, no yoda......use different ammo, lots of yadda, zero yoda....etc. etc. etc.........OOOOPS, that darn bushing is not quite up to snuff, yoda cries at this point.........If you don't use these 30 dollar Wilson mags you'll go to hell!!!!!!!!

My 4 Glocks have always worked, every time, through 30,000 rounds. My Kimber is lucky to get through a box of ammo without a FTF or FTE.

Glocks may not fit you, or just may not be your thing, but that does not mean they are shit guns.

Well, from the looks of that poster I would say the Gysgt don't know much about pistol shooting fundamentals. Gunny, lean into that thing like you mean it! "Tea Cuppin" the grip! Both thumbs forward Gunny!

Hey, Glocks are sweet guns, but I hate the trigger...gimme a crisp 1911 SA trigger any day!

If your Kimber has that many FTFs or FTEs, then there is something wrong with it...I have a Kimber and I have put THOUSANDS of rounds through it...it runs FLAWLESSLY...
Link Posted: 5/20/2005 7:12:23 AM EDT
Would we be having this conversation if Colt, Springfield, Smith and Wesson, Ruger, or another "American" firearm company thought to ask Gunny before Glock did?
I think it's a great P.R. move by Glock.
Glock's a good gun, not my favorite, but a good gun (Sig man here, despite moniker).
Glock seems to be the easiest gun to knock, love it or hate it tend to be the only choices.
How about if another, "foreign" firearm company,like HK, CZ, Sig, etc., had hired Gunny?
Would we still be calling him a "sell-out"?
To be honest, I would've felt a little better if an American company had hired him, but I've gotta give credit to Glock. Smart move, IMO.

Wow. You think that up all by yourself?

What an intellectual giant you are. I mean, I have a potty-mouthed ten year old neighbor who results to such insults when he can't come up with any rational argument, too. Yo'd probabaly get along with him.

Of course, you did by a Gloc(KBoom), so your powers of judgemnt are obviously off anyway.

I love getting you Tupperware Turd Owners all in a tizzy by suggesting to you tennifer sniffers that your Plastic Popguns are anything but "Perfection".

You may keep your Polymer Princesses.

Hope you get to keep all your fingers when it Kb's too.
