    Cool story.

    He should have just mailed it off to Smyrna, GA. Glock would have probably given him a ton of swag for that story

    I'm really not a 'hater'. I've actually touched one once. When I go fishing and catch something I don't like, back it goes. Now, I do like the idea of using it for bait. Might get an Auto-mag or something larger...

    I found a bunch of spearguns back in my diving days.
    Guys would set them down and go chasing after a lobster or whatever, only to come back and find the gun had drifted away.
    But the gun didn't drift away, they did, and they couldn't relocate where they were.
    The neatest ones were those that had been there for years. They'd get coral encrusted on them and made good displays at the dive shop.

    That’s a cool story, I wouldn’t be so lucky if something like that happened to me though

    Agree he should have sent it back to the mothership, Glock would have hooked him up and would have only been out cost of shipping to them and refinish for the slide

    Glad it wasn’t a 1911, it would have polluted the water when it rusted away.....

    Chuck Taylor was training a certain water bourn military group and decided they would leave his G17 Gen 1 on a sunken dive vessel knowing he would be back in 6 months. He came back and retrieved his blaster and immediately emptied the magazine.

    If you have the time look up Chuck Taylor's 300,000 round G17 test. Amazing.

    No pictures, we all know what a Glock looks like.

    They're like pine trees, they all look the same.
