Smyrna, Ga.—GLOCK Inc. is celebrating its 25th anniversary in the United States, and to commemorate the event it is releasing a silver anniversary, limited edition, 25th anniversary GLOCK 17 Gen4 (9x19) pistol.
Other things GLOCK has been up to this year include making a $100,000 donation to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) during the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) in Tampa, Fla., in May. During the past six years, GLOCK will have donated $600,000 to SOWF, a non-profit organization providing college scholarships to the surviving children of army, navy, air force and marine corps special operations personnel killed in combat or training.
GLOCK Inc. donates more than $500,000 each year to similar causes. Also, the GLOCK Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) an organization of GLOCK Inc. that stages indoor and outdoor competitions for GLOCK owners throughout the United States, is celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2011.
With this milestone, GSSF held the Palmetto GLOCK Girl Shootout, the first ever women-only match in May at B.E.L.T. Training, in Reevesville, S.C. The goal was to offer female shooters the chance to compete against their female peers in an otherwise male dominant field. GSSF matches are family oriented with competitions ranging from beginner to expert. The GSSF competitions are also a great place to hone shooting skills, learn tricks-of-the-trade and establish relationships with other shooters and industry professionals.
GLOCK also made the recent announcement that the Swiss Army has chosen GLOCK as the new service pistol for the Swiss Army Special Forces. The GLOCK Pistol models ultimately selected were the GLOCK 17 Gen4 and GLOCK 26 Gen4 9x19 semi-automatic pistols, as well as the Blue GLOCK Training pistol, the GLOCK 17T Gen4 and GLOCK 26T Gen4, which will have the ability to fire both FX and ATK Force on Force marking ammunition.
