Not an actual Glock anywhere in sight, just an old guy with a fantastic moustache talking Glock trivia. It looks like they didn't even get into the actual booth itself. I guess once you have seen one ugly, blocky Glock pistol you really have seen them all. Some bigger, some smaller, different calibers but all the same thing. The Glock people at the NRA annual meeting a few years back were the same way, they mostly stood around talking to each other and ignoring the little people who actually buy their handguns. When you sell millions of handguns to police departments, you apparently don't have to care much about retail consumers.
It sure seems like the industry is kind of stale right now and also likely in something of a holding pattern, modifying stuff instead of brand new products, and that makes sense given we don't know what the near future holds for gun rights. Kudos as always to Palmetto State for bringing some new products out, even if their launch is not always the best, but at least they are trying.
On the other hand, I would be happy to see these outfits just concentrate on production right now, getting what consumers need out to them. We don't need yet another goofy new caliber but we do need to see ammo prices come down. You still can't get 5.56 for much less than $.50 per round so a brand new caliber isn't really all that interesting to me.
Depending on the midterm elections, next year might be more exciting but if they midterms go as I suspect, SHOT Show 2023 might be an even bigger dud.
