Glock: The Rise Of America’s Gun – Book Contest

I’m giving away 11 copies of this new book by Paul Barrett:

About the book:

Based on fifteen years of research, Glock is the riveting story of the weapon that has become known as American’s gun.  Today the Glock pistol has been embraced by two-thirds of all U.S. police departments, glamorized in countless Hollywood movies, and featured as a ubiquitous presence on prime-time TV. It has been rhapsodized by hip-hop artists, and coveted by cops and crooks alike.

Filled with corporate intrigue, political maneuvering, Hollywood glitz, bloody shoot-outs—and an attempt on Gaston Glock’s life by a former lieutenant—Glock is at once the inside account of how Glock the company went about marketing its pistol to police agencies and later the public, as well as a compelling chronicle of the evolution of gun culture in America.

I finally bought a 35 after trying several other makes. Initially I could shoot it a little better than the others but didn’t think it was that much better of a gun than any other. After using it a while, I really like it and plan on getting a 20 soon. I like that you only have to clean it once a year or so…if you remember to! ;-)

Although, just like the Model T was replaced, eventually the Glock too will fall by the wayside. The S&W M&P is already making inroads.

After handling a Gen3 RTF G17 at a gun store, I started lusting after one. I had originally wanted a XDM in 9mm because of the magazine capacity, but found the grip safety to be uncomfortable, even when the dealer went through the trouble of changing the backstraps for me. Both pistols were cost prohibitive on an E5’s pay, so I didn’t have the ability to purchase either. One day, a friend of mine offered me a deal, he wanted my SKS and was willing to trade his S&W airlite in .357. I agreed. I also found out while the revolver concealed well and was light as hell, it was very unpleasant to shoot. I was out riding, and stopped at a pawn shop to drool over there used guns, and they had the object of my lust under the counter. I offered the revolver as trade, and they bit. I absolutely love my Glock, not to the point of being a Glock-whore, but I do carry it every day.

In high school Army JROTC I did my senior year MOI report on Gaston Glock and his innovative pistols. I wish I still had the materials from that presentation. I’m sure this book will bring back some memories, plus offer some corrections. After all, I was just a high school kid.

Reply

atún pirata January 5, 2012 at 01:30 pm

The Glock sure is popular in the U.S. (and around the globe) but I wouldn’t necessarily consider it “America’s gun”. I agree with Dennis, the AR-15 is our rifle and the 1911 is probably “our gun”. (not a flame, just saying that if we had to pick America’s gun, it would probably be invented here…)

I was sad that my little hands and the fat grip of the Glock were incompatible! I bought a 23 and a 19, believing that I could make it work but, alas, I just couldn’t get them on target fast and accurate without muscling it around. My SR9C is great! But it is no Glock! Oh, Gaston!

This looks to be an interesting read, though from what I’ve seen so far it talks more about the characters involved than the engineering of the guns.

I thought that was the 1911…

Oh well, I own more Glocks than 1911’s so why not…

I once met Gaston Glock at a GSSF event in Conyers, GA.
It is a bittersweet memory. I got to meet him (very unassuming
fellow who I think looks like Fred Astaire), had my dad along with
me also competing, and learned later that I won a G35.
The bad part is that my dad couldn’t finish the match due to back
problems that had started just before the match. Within a two weeks
he had been diagnosed with a tumor on his spine, and only lived
another few months.

My first handgun was a G17. I sold it after being convinced that the 9mm round was ineffective. So, I sold the G17 and bought a G33. A subcompact in .357 SIG was a bad idea. Too much drama for the same size hole as a 9mm. Sold the G33 and moved on to a different brand. Older and wiser now, I want a G19 and this book.
