Hey if Glock paid me enough, I'd endorse them too.
April 15, 2005, 04:20 PM
I have alway had good luck with my Glock.

There's just something about a Marine shilling for Glock that just isn't - well - right... :confused:

Is Glock the USMC sidearm? I noticed his grip (picture in background) isn't right. He's "cupping" the gun. Say it ain't so Gunny.

He may be cupping the pistol, but I've seen enough of his work on location for the History Channel stuff that I won't be standing down range of him.
Good for him making a living doing what he enjoys. Few get to say that.

Hooray for the Red, White and Blue! Oops, I mean the Red and White! :D
East Empire strikes back. :D

No, the M9 is.

I don't see the problem. If he was trying to sell a POS like a Highpoint or Jennings then I would see a problem with a famous Marine pushing junk on the public that could get them killed.
Since the Glock is a quality firearm that ANY Marine could do well with in combat there is no problem here.

The M9 will be replaced by something in .45GAP in the not to distant future, possibly a Glock. This train is already on the tracks and picking up Steam! :D

I noticed his grip (picture in background) isn't right. He's "cupping" the gun.Of course he's just posing for a still shot, not actually firing. I agree with Gunsnrovers, I've watched him shoot on Mail Call, he knows how to put lead on target.
As for Glocks, I don't care for the looks or feel, but they DO work and are darn accurate. The Marines could do a lot worse.
April 16, 2005, 04:31 PM
Realize that he IS a former Marine D.I. Of course he knows how to shoot. He may not have the most modern technique but he can shoot! Hell, I'm a former Marine and if Glock paid me to endorse their products I'd be negotiating for as much $ as possible. :D

If would have been a cooler picture if it was a stainless 1911, but at least its not a highpoint.
I agree Glocks are good guns, I just haven't convinced myself to buy any polymer framed pistol yet. Nothing like the feel of cold steel (or aluminum) in your hands.

If it produces the desired results IT's RIGHT for Him!
The Official "HOW TO BOOK" doesn't work for everybody in all situations and requires a little tuning here and there to fit the occasion. :)

As for Glocks, I don't care for the looks or feel,You got that right. but they DO workYep! They absolutely go bang each and everytime you pull the trigger - hell - the one I had sometimes went bang twice when I pulled the trigger and are darn accurate. heh... heh..
Please I'm busting a gut here - stop - please - no more!
April 16, 2005, 06:23 PM
I still don't want one.

It's a secret signal that is only known to those of us who served before 1976.
The only part that I can let all of you know about is the last part: "...you don't want anything to do with these, better to use a club, and since a 1911 weighs more, this thing isn't even good for that."
April 16, 2005, 10:25 PM
Well my G-19 ain't pretty, but it always goes bang and deposits bullet in question where I'm pointing it.
I probably carry my 1911 more often, but sometimes when I'm feeling "gangsta" the Glock gets carried and I feel I could hold my own against misc bad guys.
15 rd mags also enhance the sense of security :evil:

Too bad he isn't a real gunny.

Too bad he isn't a real gunny
How do you figure that?
I know that he retired as a Staff Sergeant, but the Marine Corps has since given him the rank Gunnery Sergeant officially and the Marines consider that he is authorized to use that rank and wear the rank insignia. If the Marine Corps considers him a "real" gunny, then I think he is a real "gunny".
