    That's what happens when you subcontract to a product photographer who knows nothing about the product. Or maybe he's just a Glock fan having a little fun?

    What's just as bad is years later is still a topic of discussion.

    really bad

    sometimes you just have to scratch your head at how some things like that can make it through so many people. presumably many, many people looked at that ad before it went to print and no one caught it. i've had my first handgun for less than a month and i saw what you were referencing in less than five seconds. even if this ad has been out for years its not one they'll be able to live down for a long, long, time. isn't it leno that does the newspaper headlines and ads that have unbelievable goof-ups or enuendos and such?? so it happens quite often in various media outlets.
    my local newspaper had an article entitled "missionary's death shocks community" well the kid was electrocuted turns out as i read the article. how dense can the editor of that paper be?????

    Mistakes happen. HK was the laughingstock of SHOT Show the year that catalog came out.

    Stuff like this is why Galco always has a company rep present during photo sessions, even if it's just holster parts without a model. Usually it's the VP of Operations and me (since I am stuck as Zoolander). I am very sure HK does the same now.

    And you might be surprised at the number on non-gun people working in the firearms industry...especially in marketing!

    that's even worse

    oh man i didn't notice that was the cover of an entire catalog. that's even worse. i thought it was a full page magazine ad or something. i can't believe that. i'm sure as mentioned above that many who aren't gun people work for firearms manufacturers and in the industry. being a good ceo etc. has surprisingly little to do with the actual product. management and marketing ideas translate across product lines. still, the cover of a glossy print multi-page catalog. some "gun" people saw that before it went to print and that's just bad. but judging from the posts above i'm kicking a dead and well-beaten horse.

    I saw that years ago, but was always suspicious that it was a good Photochop. Apparently not?!

    I've always read you should load wadcutters backwards for maximum effectiveness. Isn't that what they meant?
