I would like to see a full size and a midsized single stack pistols from glock. I would also like to see glock make a hybred SAO pistol similar to what Sig Saur has been doing. One can only dreams.......Shipwreck said:Glock needs to come out w/ a Carbine, and also a small, tiny, single stack 9mm that can fit in a pocket. Both of those would make them big bucks.
I'd support that. It's tough to beat AR ergonomics, except the charging handle. But AR reliability should be pretty easy for Glock to beat, if this vaporware carbine ever comes to pass. To have the requisite "evil" features, they will have to manufacture it in the US. Absent a military or federal government contract, though, I am not sure that is economically feasible.scucmd said:Who says they couldn't make at .223 or a .308 carbine. With an ingenius design, this could happen.
There are several solutions to this. My father and sister are both cross-dominant, but both shoot fine with a rifle (actually, my father is a great rifle shot). Dad just squints his left eye when shooting a rifle. Another solution is putting a little piece of Scotch tape on the left lens of your shooting glasses. This will dim the left eye (without the muscular effort needed to squint) and force the brain to use the right eye. As a last-ditch effort, you can learn to shoot from the left shoulder. It's not as difficult as it sounds, but it's not a perfect solution, either.Well, I'm not a huge rifle fan - being left eye dominate and right handed. I never felt that comfortable shooting a rifle.

That would be interesting.
The AnarchAngel web site shows the 10mm starting a 200 gr bullet at 1778 fps out of a 16" barrel, for 1404 ft lbs of energy. Not bad at all! Such a gun with a folding or collapsing stock would come fairly close to the "Thumper" concept Jeff Cooper outlined in "To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak the Truth."Charlie said:Pistol caliber carbine would be OK if were a 10mm!
