I took the dogs to the dog park, and it was cold - almost Yankeeland cold. There were just a few of us watching the dogs play. Then a guy showed up. A guy wearing a Glock jacket.
I struck up a conversation, and it turns out that he's in Glock's marketing department. We had a long and very interesting conversation. Glock's Smyrna, GA plant builds 30,000 guns a month, and is running flat out. Their two Austrian plants are jointly building roughly 100,000 guns/month for the American market.* That's about 130,000 guns a month.
They have orders in hand for 1,200,000 guns - that's nearly a year's production. A year, running all their factories at 100% capacity.
He also mentioned that they have a very interesting set of new models that they will be introducing in June. I actually promised not to let the cat out of the bag here (yeah, I'm being a jerk) but it has a model that I might actually consider buying. Even though (as Kim du Toit used to say) they're ugly, plastic, and made by furreners.
* They actually import them as parts - big bags of recoil springs, etc - and assemble them here. That saves something like $150/gun in import duty.
