Good choice but maybe they should go for someone a little younger!
Maybe next time.

Most celebs would endorse anything if the price is right. I won't endorse them - but I'm not a celeb either.

Good for them. They know how to build their brand and Norris is certainly a well known and trusted product spokesman. Glock obviously puts a ton of firearms into the hands of the American public and that is a good thing for us. No reason for anyone to be jealous of their success.

Chuck Norris is a great spokesman. But I think he has killed more bad guys with an M60 Machine Gun then a Glock... just saying.

I dont remember ever seeing Chuck Norris use a Glock in film or TV. 1911s, S&W revolvers, Berettas and Sig, sure. Plus, as you say, lots of machine guns.

Well, according to IMFDB he did use one in Top Dog. Never seen that one.

Next Glock vs 1911 should feature Chuck Norris vs Steven Seagal.

Chuck Norris you say? Well, I'm certainly going to buy a heap of Glox right away!

Or................. Nah.


Celebrity endorsements mean little to me. Glock's guns have to stand on their own.
---------------------- Which they do very well.

Not that I would want one, unless I had to carry a service-size pistol all day.

When Glock started out in the US market they were using bikini babes instead of celebrities...

Bob Vogel would be a far better choice. He's not famous among non-shooters, though.

Glad to hear he’s employed again.

Good to hear of a Glock carrying Chuck Norris for protection.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Well, Wilson Combat came to me for a endorsement and
asked me to a spokesman. But I said no.

Along came Nighthawk and again I said no.

Ditto for Colt.

But now Hi Point is currying my favor and I think
I just might be its spokesman.

You guys are too funny. I remember back in the 80's they were shooting a segment of "Walker, Texas Ranger" here at a local range that I was an RSO at. I got to meet him and talk to him during one of the breaks, and he seemed like a really down-to-earth guy. I don't buy anything due to endorsements, but a lot of folks do, and I'm glad to see Chuck have a gig that produces income for him.

I reckon it was either be a spokesman for Glock or Depends? Glad he chose the shootin' iron.

This ... young woman was at -my- lane ...

This tiny, somewhat familiar-looking young woman was at -my- lane one night: shift manager apologized for letting her have my lane only a few minutes before my normal time* ... gave me my 1st alternate lane. He was obviously smitten ... and he gave me a copy of a photo he took of her. The top of my head can just be seen over her shoulder: Michelle Rodriguez, with a truly wonderful smile. From the timing I guess she was training for “Avatar”. We got celebrities in fairly often then ... few now.

*- Whereas I was amazed at how nice he was to not assign that lane until I arrived ... most nights. :- }

Well, I'm disappointed. I'd rather see him as a spokesperson for a 1911 manufacturer. (Us Norris' should stick together I should think!)

R. Lee Ermey was a huge 1911 fan and sang its praises almost as much as Jeff Cooper... up until he signed on as Glock's spokesperson. Then it was Glock, Glock, Glock... hardly ever any mention of the 1911 in his shows. I guess if Glock waved a $2 million check under my nose I might become a huge fanboy as well, but for now their products have to earn their place in my safe.

Apparently, you don't watch much TV (especially late at night, or very, very early in the morning). Chuck (not to mention Christie Brinkley) has been selling TotalGym's for decades.

Maybe they could include a free Glock with every TotalGym sold, a cross promotion.

Don't think those Depends stay on very well when you're doing those flying roundhouse kicks. It's better that he chose Glock.
