Glock Grenade Joke In Time Magazine

A hilarious find in TIME Special Ops sent in by observant reader Mike B.:

As you can see it clearly reads (Glock Logo) 22 Gen4 AUSTRIA .40.    LOL so awesome…   I actually have heard that Glock made grenades for a short period of time, and there are two pictures of Glock grenades in my Exploding Glock Humor post, but I’m not sure if either one is authentic.  The grenades the made obviously wouldn’t have said Glock 22 Gen4 Austria .40 on them though.

I hope this isn’t going to get a graphic artist at TIME fired… frankly I think the person needs a promotion for being so awesome.

If you don’t already own the magazine and have any doubts of the authenticity of what I posted. Check out this video at around 4:11, where you can clearly see the same writing.

If you want to buy a piece of Glock trolling history you can pick up a copy of TIME Special Ops over at Amazon for $12.

Good thing its a gen4, a gen3 wouldn’t have had the new features like stronger pin pull and replaceable handle for those with smaller hands

I thought this was a cool magazine, but I did notice that when I picked it up at Barnes and Nobles.

Reminds me of the infamous H&K magaxine-loading pic. I think these guys do it on purpose just to see if people notice.

But if it’s on purpose that means TIME has a gun guy on staff. The media abhors such things.

In the author’s defense, though, Glock .40s DO tend to explode with a lethal radius of 15 feet.

I have this magazine I need to check this.

Funny how it runs a pic of the P226 and you have the video in the story above about fxhummel1’s POS P226…and I like it has a “high capacity clip” according to the article too…

Just noticed the guy’s rifle has the bright yellow MILES tip on it too. Well, there goes your cool factor, Mr. Operator who Operates in Training Operations.

It’s just a blank adaptor, but yeah, I just noticed that too. *snicker*

MILES would be the big stupid laser box bolted to the top of the barrel, in front of the front site post.

Maybe the guy in the graphics dept is a Glock fan and wanted to get the name out there since he knew Sig would get the sidearm pic.

Even as awesome as that is I still can’t bring myself to buy another Time magazine. I dropped Time and Newsweek during the 2008 Election. They went from left leaning to basically being a 527 group for Obama. I’ll buy left leaning journalism because I like different viewpoints. I won’t however support blatant propaganda and piss poor reporting.
If they have anything worth reading I’ll catch it online for free.

That’s not a Spectre either. Just saying
