Back in 1986 I was detailed to the U.S. Border Patrol Academy as a Firearms Instructor.
Herr Glock and his US representative came to Glynco, Ga. to try to interest the BP into buy Glock pistols for the Patrol. The PTB nixed the idea but Glock sold several of his Model 17s to those of us there at the time. Nice pistol. The sights were not great (and still aren’t), but the thing that I noticed that was strange was this pistol was designed in Austria where it gets pretty cold in the winter. One cannot get a gloved finger in the trigger guard. Go figger.
