    Smith & Wesson has hired two sales executives from Glock USA, as the Springfield company takes aim at Glock's law enforcement sales with a new pistol.

    Smith & Wesson said it has hired Glock Training Director Bryan K. James to be director of law enforcement sales. The local company also hired Douglas Grier III, a former senior district sales manager for Glock, to head regional sales for Smith & Wesson's law enforcement products.

    Glock spokesman William C. Grosse said the company was not concerned about the hirings.

    Doug Grier knows his stuff. He is retired Philly PD range officer and was responsible for putting glocks in the hands of many East coast PDs and Sheriiff's offices. I met him when he taught the armorer's course several years ago. If anyone has chance of marketing a new product to LEAs, he's the man.

    S&W has too much faith in the power of the sales effort. They need to build guns that are better than the competition that cops want to buy.

    Let me translate you, the article from "american gunzine langueage" to "reality":

    (original articel is from Charles E. Petty)

    "but is a big evolutionary step in polymer frame pistols"


    = nothing is new, except some design elements


    "this one has three interchangeable grip panels that also cover the sides and markedly change the feel of the grips'

    = as copied from sigpro

    "One of the drawbacks of many polymer pistols is that they require you to pull the trigger to field strip"

    = because of large advertisement contracts I can not bashing Glock directly


    "Accuracy was under 3" which is good for a service pistol"


    = tragically inaccurate


    "I've shot well over 1000 rounds without a functional malfunction. There have been a couple of light hits on primers"

    = it was absolutely unreliable, and missfired for every second round

    " It is a matter of opinion but I think recoil is very moderate "

    = it kicks like a mule!!!
