    After a short session of shooting the new M&P Compact 9mm and a few other guns.

    My buddy that was visiting from OR, and I spotted a glossy Glock at the
    local hardware store.

    I knew exactly what is was, becuase my wife had spied one for a whoppping
    $800 at the last Gunshow.

    Needless to say. My new Model 637 snubby and some cash..

    She now owns #297 of 300 Glock 19 TALOs.

    Looks much better in person, I'm just not a Glock fan.

    They point and work well for me but have no soul:)

    Still an interesting addition to any Glock lover's battery.

    She is thrilled with it!

    Can you post some details about this special edition? I've never heard of it; would love to know what makes it different.

    According to my research on GT and other places.

    Limited Edition of 300 G19 and 300 G23s were made.

    Black nickel slide with GLOCK lettering in Gold plate, probably not real gold.

    Jeweled barrel hood.

    Shoots as good as it looks!!

    They had one down at the Barron's den. They are actually pretty flashy. Look more like somehting you would really like to display. My wife is an HK fan so she wouldn't go for it. She wants the HK compact USP 45.

    Yes, they look nice.

    BTW, I lived/worked in Eugene for 5 years after I left LaGrande PD.

    I actually liked the finish on it. Seems to be durable for as shiny and nice as it is. My only problem is since living here in OR no one would ever get to see it. When I lived in AZ I loved being able to open carry my "nice" guns. You know the pretty ones..

    My favorite was hearing an older women say wow that sure is a pretty gun..LOL
