High Roaders will enjoy this article about Rick Washburn, the Hollywood prop master who introduced Glock to the movies and television.

The New York Times found its way to Washburn's theatrical arsenal in fashionable SoHo by reading my book, GLOCK: The Rise of America's Gun, which makes a pretty decent Father's Day Gift.

THAT is COOL. I'd love to take a walk through that place. I bet Bloomberg cries every time he drives by that building.

I really like Glocks, but I think they overuse them in movies now. They should stick with guns that have more character. Something that really stands out, unless it's contrary to the character design.

My favorites are the Glocks that click C-O-L-T every time they are pulled from a holster. Those are the best.

+1 to that!

awesome link, curious if anyone knows who the Boston equivalent of this business would be? That's a commute I'd be willing to make if I could land a position! Heck I'd mop their floors if it meant working in a place like that!!!

Interesting, thanks for the link Paul.

On a side note, I'm about halfway through Glock, and I must say I'm enjoying it so far. I will keep an eye out for your future work.

Sgt R -

Thanks for good words about GLOCK. Glad you're enjoying it.

Next book, also for Crown/Random House, will be out in January 2014, God willing, on the oil industry in the Amazonian rainforest. Meanwhile, you can catch me in the act of my day job at Businessweek, where I write about everything from guns to oil to smartphones.

All best,
