RIP indeed, to the handguns to which I've trusted my life for many years now. Still keep a Glock 34 fitted with a Surefire X300 and a Glock 26 in my bedroom safe to protect my life and that of my wife. Love Glocks or hate them, there's no doubt that he revolutionized the pistol market, and that his company's firearms are still the gold standard today.

Sadly, the media coverage of Mr. Glock has been extremely predictable. I saw one headline titled, "Man who made billions out of death and killing dies at the age of 94," and then of course it lists all of the mass shootings involving Glocks.

Yeah, I saw and read a few of those articles. Pretty typical.
