Someone please verify the authenticity of this ad, and put the link in the comments:
The above picture was posted on TheFirearmBlog recently. No link to the source, and when I looked at some of Glock’s blogs and social media pages I don’t find any mention of it.
These are the reasons I think the picture is fake:
- The comparison of size to a Zippo lighter is weak. Why would Glock do that? I think they have a better marketing department than that.
- The Zippo lighter looks like a shitty low effort image pulled off google… I tried to look for the matching pic but couldn’t find it
- Has Glock ever used PROVEN in their ads before? I don’t remember seeing it. Plus, if the gun is new, why would you put PROVEN in the ad?
- People love starting SHOT show rumors. ”OMG Becky, I heard this year Glock is coming out with a rifle! OMG Trisha I heard a single stack 9mm. Lets go get bikini waxes and discuss the merits of 9mm over .45, and what finish of Deagle Brand Deagles we want to get our boyfriends for Christmas.” Yea it’s like that.
