I was teaching class today, and one of my students told me that Beretta, USA bought Glock. She stated that a friend working the SHOT show sent her a text to that effect. Anyone else heard this?

No, and I have followed several blogs from the show.

Beretta USA purchased all of Glock? I highly doubt it.

If correct, your student's friend apparently has more insight than a bunch of folks who are attending the show and keeping blogs of what they learn, including some who are working at the show as well. Once again, I highly doubt it.

I thought so. I told the student that I would think it more likely that Glock would be buying Beretta.

Maybe she meant Detective Tony Baretta (http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0038612/) bought A Glock?

Why would Glock sell out? Isn't it doing well? Are not Glocks still selling like hot cakes?

As noted, Beretta just signed a contract with the U.S. Army for up to 450,000 more 92FS pistols. I wonder if that will finally kill the constant talk about the military adopting a new pistol!
