Did anyone else catch that artical in the Combat tactics magazine?

I thought it was a great read my self. If you didn't check out the article on page 44 of combat tactics mag... Interesting life the glock has had in the states. Good read very interesting to say the least for all you glock owners/lovers & enemies.

Jumping to the conclusion that the artical is about the book by the same name, I just finished the book (http://www.amazon.com/Glock-The-Rise-Americas-Gun/dp/0307719936/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345914615&sr=8-1&keywords=glock+american+gun) and it was an very interesting read. The story of a guy that builds radiators, curtain rods and knives to a very rich man. I was cheap and when the library route (Sacramento). While there is no arguing the gun works and works well, the rest of the story fell into place with seemingly much luck (and strippers).

Most interesting to me was factory unit costs are like $70-$80 bucks a gun total. Rest is profit, which caused a whole different set of issues.

Anyway - good read.

Not sure of link I'll look tho and yea it was off the book with a little added info..

Really changed the way I look at the company and how shady of an old bird glock actually was.. Symple too much power for one man everyone becomes enemies and a stripper takes over and controls everything..

I'm very interested in the in detail book now after that little read.
