I recieved this book free from Goodreads First Reads program.

I am not a gun ethusiast but I did enjoy learning about how the Glock became America's gun. From its invention in Austria in the 1980s to its dominance as the handgun most police forces and private citizens prefer is a story full of money, celebrity, sex and even attempted murder. There was plenty of money to go around for everyone but like all segments of society there was never enough for me. The successful company became successful and has remained successful despite itself. Many things just broke right for Gastin Glock and what became his empire. Fun quick read.
