Gaston Glock Backs Down Paparazzi With A Threat

The boss of one of Europe’s biggest gunsmiths Gaston Glock is facing a police investigation in Austria after claims that he he held a realistic looking replica pistol to a photographer’s head and pulled the trigger.

He claims the 82-year-old tycoon then fired the gun at him which was a water pistol and then told him: “I bet you’re glad that this is not a real gun.”

Full Story – HERE

Translation: “WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH I’m a bottom feeder and someone shot a water pistol at me and then said something I didn’t like.”

Get a real job that doesn’t invade people’s privacy and then maybe i’ll give a shit…. NEXT!

I sure hope Gaston doesn’t have to lose any sleep over this case.

I think Gaston is an idiot for doing this. He should know better.

You should read the book “Glock: Rise of America’s Gun”

No thanks. I don’t want it to blow up in my hand.

Yeah, I don’t think having your picture taken when you don’t want it taken is any justification for what he did. Yeah, paparazzi are scum but to make someone think that they were about to get their brains blown out? Pure stupid. I hope he is forced to pay the photog a nice chunk of change. Sure it would be like taking a nickel out of his wallet for how rich he is but wrong is wrong.

Can you imagine if one of us regular shmoes did that? How sued/screwed we would be?

How about we wait and see all the facts before we jump to conclusions.

Are you kidding me! He didn’t do anything wrong. He played a joke on a guy who was being a douchebag. I think it was funny (and completely justified). The fact that you think he should pay the photographer anything is asinine. People need to stop being so god damn litigious, it’s ruining society. The photographer is clearly not above doing sleazy things for a quick buck; it’s a bullshit suit. Glock didn’t intend to harm the guy, he scared him for a couple seconds. What are the damages? If anything the photographer has a cool story to tell his friends. Plus a story to sell to the press. This guy is in it for money not justice.

Honestly if a regular schmoe did this no one would care. Yea you could find an ambulance chaser to sue but I think that would make you the asshole; and at that point I’d hope someone does society a favor and uses a real gun instead of a water pistol.

“A joke”. Try that joke on a cop. See how funny he finds it. Or how about someone doing that to a 9 year old kid who defecates themselves because they thought they were about to die. So hilarious!!! And “I’m” the asshole??? You think that’s funny? You probably think those videos where women are getting smacked by Desert Eagles or Smith .500’s are funny too.

“and at that point I’d hope someone does society a favor and uses a real gun instead of a water pistol.”

You actually just stated that if someone were going to sue someone for a prank you would have preferred it to NOT be a prank so that they would be shot dead. Wow. I’m ashamed that you are a fellow gun owner. Anger and hatred like yours + guns. Wonderful combo there.

““A joke”. Try that joke on a cop. See how funny he finds it. Or how about someone doing that to a 9 year old kid who defecates themselves because they thought they were about to die”.
I wasn’t saying it was a nice joke. I wouldn’t do it to a cop or a 9 year old, just like i wouldn’t play any other practical joke on someone completely unwarranted. The photographer knew he was being a dick. He didn’t care. Glock played a harmless joke. So why should we care if the photographer got scared?

The videos of newbs with guns are fairly funny. People like watching other people get hurt (although not seriously hurt). Look at America’s Funniest Home Videos, ebaums world, even youtube they’re choked full with videos of someone doing something dumb and getting hurt.

To your other point a real gun was a bit extreme. However, I will say that I would prefer those people were raised better, or at least never born. The world would be a better place. People that think they’re entitled to money because someone scared them with a practical joke are not people I want in my life or influencing the government or legal system. When did this country get so overpopulated with pansies? I’ve been hit, my life threatened but I didn’t go out and start suing. I maned up went over to the guy’s house the next day and we worked it out over a beer (turns out he thought I was fucking his baby momma, but I was actually fucking their neighbor). No need to involve all the government agencies and waste bunch of my time and money. You know what the worst part about that situation was? I was afraid to defend myself because shooting a guy with a knife means a criminal trial and if he lives a civil one as well. It was easier to take the punches. Now some pacifists might say It was a good thing since no one was seriously hurt but they’re the reason a drug addicted statutory rapist is still collecting unemployment and sponging off his baby momma, bringing hard drugs into the same tiny apartment where they live with their two young children. Don’t assume everyone is a good person and a benefit to society. I know the kind if people that file these frivolous suits; they’re scum, bottom-feeders. They’re hard up for money so they do whatever it takes to put food on the table. They don’t care what other people think so long as they get their check. Personally, Ican see where they’re coming from. If I could sue someone rich for something like what happened to the photographer I would. Not because I would want payback but because I’ll take money from anyone as long as I’m not punished for it. However, I don’t expect anyone to defend my actions or think of me as anything but an antagonist. I don’t think my suit would be just or fair. But a pile of money means those things don’t matter to me.

For the record I never called you an asshole. I called your idea asinine but if you’re really that stalwart in your views you’re an asshole in my book. You may be ashamed I’m a fellow gun owner but I’m ashamed you’re a fellow American.

I’d like to see this “realistic” looking water pistol before any talk about payoffs.


paul kimble July 31, 2012 at 03:45 pm

he should have shot him in the head with a g20 as a lesson to other irritating paparazzi.

“bother not myself and hot stern faced ex-nurse blond woman.”

i bet he’d get out of it for much less than it cost oj and has the whole im old and jittery plus he scared me angle.


M August 1, 2012 at 10:34 pm

i might actually consider buying a glock if one was used on a photo-terrorist.

“I sure hope Gaston doesn’t have to lose any sleep over this case.”

Trust me, he won’t. Living in Florida you learn one thing very quickly: old people like the 82 year old Gaston Glock do not give a fuck. Forget the Honey Badger, old people have the market cornered on not giving a fuck. Farting in front of family and friends? You bet.* Cursing and using racial slurs (or, just plain saying what everybody else is thinking) in public? Sure. Having sexual relationships with people young enough to be their grand-children? Just so long as the Viagra and/or Astroglide keeps on a-flowin’. Holding up a line at a busy restaurant, supermarket, or whatever, to bitch at the teller about something totally unrelated to the business transaction in question? All day long. You get the picture. Some people hate old folks because of this, but I think it makes oldies AWESOME.

*Just don’t call them out on the public flatulence. It makes them really angry for some reason, and they get even angrier when you can’t stop laughing at them being angry about you laughing … it’s a deadly cycle.

Haha everything about your comment was priceless!

“Get a real job that doesn’t invade people’s privacy and then maybe i’ll give a shit…. NEXT”
exactly. but seeing as the press say it was a water pistol it probably was an assault pistol with a shoulder drum magazine that goes up.
I am fine with people shooting loser paparazzi btw

Paparazzi going after the inventor of Glock? Did crap like Jersey Shore and Desperate Housewives go out of style overnight? I didn’t realize he was on the minds of every average American!


GLAWK August 2, 2012 at 12:33 pm

What Glock would Glock carry if he carried a Glock? LOL


Nix January 22, 2016 at 11:29 am

Why not everyone down in customer service in GA is an assailed too. I like the gun but the ppl there don’t give a damn about your gun in my case. I had a 21sf with the ambi problem. I can’t get it fixed just a bunch of sarcastic remarks even salesgirl supervisor left a msg for Shawn and I think will no return call. I have three small children in my house I can’t have a faulty gun .
