I don't think Gaston Glock is thinking about guns.
When the Ruger LC380 came out, I read a few posts here and there on forums where people thought it was a good idea - a 380 out of a larger gun than the LCP would mean less felt recoil. Some people thought their wives would like it better than the pocket 380s
We've gone through a post-Newtown gun-buying craze kept strong by periodic gun control statements and threats from people like Reid and Obama that has probably made for better sales for the LC380 than would otherwise have been the case. But still, I don't think the LC380 have been selling all that great.
I think Glock's new guns will be profitable for them because they have a built-in market of people who are going to buy Glock guns. Just looking on the GlockTalk forum and seeing the number of people who post "Where can I buy the G25 and the G28?" There are enough people right there to make this a successful product rollout.
I had a Colt Mustang that was easy to shoot at the range.
I've always wanted to get a pair of IMBELs to shoot:
Maybe this Glock will be something like that, a gun to get just because you want it...
