Breaking News: Gaston Glock Has Passed Away At 94

Gaston Glock, inventor of the GLOCK Safe-Action Pistol, has passed away at the age of 94. One of a select few individuals who have dramatically changed the firearms industry, Mr. Glock pioneered the use of polymers for pistol frames, re-defined the term ‘reliability’, and methodically advanced the use of defensive handguns around the world.

It was an honor to know that Mr. Glock was a fan of TFB and TFBTV and we wish his employees, friends, and family peace in this difficult time.

We will have additional information as it becomes available.

From the official GLOCK website:

Following this guiding principle, our founder, Gaston Glock not only revolutionized the world of small arms in the 1980s, but also succeeded in establishing the GLOCK brand as the global leader in the handgun industry. His internationally renowned GLOCK Perfection stands for uncompromising quality and maximum customer satisfaction.

Gaston Glock charted the strategic direction of the GLOCK Group throughout his life and prepared it for the future. His life’s work will continue in his spirit.

    It’s really pathetic that some here take the time to bash Glock. Why? Because the bashers are just ignorant little boys that have no clue on what Gaston Glock created. He created a Gun that almost every manufacturer now clones in one way or another. If you don’t like Glocks for one reason or another that’s your opinion. However there is no denying that Glocks have proven to be one of the most reliable handguns ever made. If you deny that FACT then you are truly a dimwitted person.
