    Greetings,
    Glock. The name conjures many images and opionions in one's mind. Opinions and statements ranging from, "the gun is too dangerous without a safety," to "it's perfect the way it is," to "I hate the grips," to "why would you ever pervert the Glock by customization."

    Allow me to interject my two cents, for whatever it's worth. I love the Glock; I've never seen it fail, not once, not in training and not in combat, yes, combat. Never have I worried about ammo quality, dirt, dust, rain, dropping it, never, ever! But the Glock has a problem, an image problem if you will-it's ugly. I may offend some with that remark, but sorry, I think it is.

    GlockVector Industries...and no, I'm not an employee, owner, family member, nor anything else that puts me in close proximity of others that control that company, GlockVector is attempting to thrust this muscle gun out of the throws of that label by producing the first "production" custom series-marked as such. They've added functional cuts, serrations, stippling, Silicon Carbide grips, DLC coatings, ZEV after market parts, and much more to this weapon platform making them worthy of collection status. They've marked each one with "one of series", i.e., 1/100, 2/100, and so on. For those who say this gun is fine the way it is, consider this; if people thought this of the 1911, Les Baer and Bill Wilson's place wouldn't exist.

    So do me a favor, when you go to Gvi's website, don't jawbone their product downard, rather, embrace their attempt to raise the bar of this "perfect" Pistol!

    I agree with the salesman comment.

    Went there; didn't "jawbone" anything. Still wouldn't have one as a gift.

    Nornally? Uh...what? I read that ten times and I still have no idea what it means. Poor spelling and grammar are usually the signs of a fraudulent company.

    So... let's just leave this one here. If you're interested, go look them up. If not, don't.

    If someone actually has one or buys one, maybe do a performance reveiw for us.

    Huh, something doesn't add up. If you search for Glock Vector, you find someone using the same "pmajet" username claiming to be the owner, Phillip Stromer.

    From: http://www.yellowbook.com/profile/glock-vector-industries_1857323567.html
    Owner

    Hello,
    My name is Phillip Stromer. I'm the owner and founder of GlockVector Industries. I created this company to fill the gap between left wing and right wing thinkers who both have contributed to creating one of the most hotly debated subjects in this country's history; firearms, who, what, how, why?
    ...

    There's also a post over on GlockTalk where it says:
    You are absolutely correct about the Glock being the most dependable handgun made. That is why I've started a company that specializes in Customized Glocks; it's about time we dress these up the way 1911's have been for years. www.glockvectorindustries.com

    This is probably a different pmajet also named Phillip Stromer, isn't it? http://mercedesforum.com/forum/members/pmajet-24982/

    Must be a glitch in the matrix. I think I'll unlock this so pmajet has an opportunity to clear this up.

    The Rising Glock Posts...

    Wow, tough crowd. I went to the site again. I think what they meant was the "Frame" size is called Standard. And no, I'm not a salesman, I work for Boeing.
    I just respect someone's courage and tenacity trying to develop a new product in today's economy. I was looking for some stimulating and constructive conversation but obviously, none of you have that capacity. Have a wonderful day you all!

    I went ahead and merged the two threads started by pmajet. The second thread consisted of post 11 and 12 in this thread.

    I'm curious about the "combat" comment. That throws up a red flag there, especially if you work for Boeing. What combat (besides a foriegn country's armed forces youtube video) have you seen the Glock in?

    I guess if we're actually supposed to talk about the topic at hand, I'm of the camp that says "it's just fine the way it is." Glock has already improved his models with the Gen 4 variation to make it more marketable to a wider variety of people.

    You respect ... your own ... courage? That's nice. Or are you applauding the intestinal fortitude of the other Phillip Stromer?

    You know, we kinda frown on lying here.

    Not a fan of Glock's grip angle, so it's XD for me. But even if I did like Glocks I still wouldn't pony up $700 for a "standard Glock Vector" when I could buy a $500 Glock locally and pick up whatever else I want from Midway. Custom race gun or not I just can't bring myself to pay $2000 for plastic.

    Or more correctly, if you're selling something, at least be up front about it.

    Respect is earned, and being deceitful isn't a way to earn it.

    This whole thread was really weird. He's now given all of us a reason to never consider doing business with him. If you can't be honest, what can you be?

    You're right, I am the owner of GlockVector. I did what I did, and broke the rules, to see the reaction and am not surprised about the hostility and vigor at which you display that hostility. I'm sure all you will go on and post trash or vilify or make fun of for days, as you all seem to have so much time on your hands. I apologize for the thread: definately learned that the "gun" crowd, a majority of them, believe Glocks are 66' Chevy Impalas. Again, sorry for the thread, I take all responsibilty for it, and apologize for the lie about working for Boeing, I don't, I'm a captain for a major airline.

    Hm. I wonder how these would match up against one of the custom Glocks from Salient Arms?

    I've seen Salient guns at some of the bigger matches but never even heard of this outfit.

    Most people won't do business with someone who is willing to lie so boldly. I wonder how long this thread will haunt your business? Wow.... you got some balls.

    And then you insult us for outing your flat out lie... I think you better stick to airplanes, business does not suit you.

    Oh, I'm sure you'll spend all your time doing so, I'm sorry you have so much anger inside, hatered really for people that don't align with your mindset. I bet you're the kind of guy that gets uptight when you're behind a slow car or yell at your wife, or beat your kids. If you plan to get personal, I'll pursure your ass and sue you for using my name and threatening to thwart a business. I'd watch your posts pal.

    Wow, pmajet, given this is likely to spread by wildfire and sink your business i almost feel bad for you. In addition to ruining your own credibility getting caught doesnt bode well for your decision making skills. Such a person isnt who most want to do business with. Of course continuing to insult members isn't helping your case either.

    So, I'm finished with you and your hot pursuit for someone you can trash while sitting in your underwear at your mom's house. FO!
