What's the source for the story about how Glock acquired the .40 S&W rounds it used to develop the first .40 cal Glocks? Paul Barrett, in his book on Glock mentions that the rounds were acquired from the S&W booth at SHOT Show, but indicates that they were samples and doesn't suggest that there was any wrongdoing involved nor even characterize the acquisition negatively.
Do you know about the TEXAS State Rifle Association?
