    I have just started reading "Glock:The Rise of America's Gun" by Paul Barrett. Very informative. Gaston Glock is a genius. A must read for all who love their Glocks.

    Ust finished reading the book "GLOCK the rise of America's gun"Mr. Gaston Glock is a genius from curtain rod manufaturer to willing to fufill a need. For the Austrian Army. The book is a great read for Glock enthusiast. How it all started and why to the way that the "plastic gun" overpowered American firearms like Smith & Wesson, Winchester, Remington. Worth the $17 on Amazon.

    I am not a big reader, but read Glock - the Rise of America's Gun - on my iPad and thought it was great...especially for someone like myself, new to Glock (own a G19) and shooting. Reading another interesting book now - Warrior Soul by Chuck Pfarrer
