Glock Pistols

9.1tech score


Glock Pistols are manufactured by the Austrian weapons manufacturer Glock which was founded by Gaston Glock.

Glock pistols use high-strength polymer materials on their frames. The polymer (Polymer2, a type of synthetic plastic) used in Glock pistols is corrosion resistant that exceeds the specifications of stainless steel.

When metals are exposed to extreme temperatures, they become brittle and prone to break easily. Polymers are immune to this and are tougher than steel, almost approaching the hardness of diamonds.

If you are one of those individuals who are caught in a middle of reflection whether a handgun keeps you safe or puts your life in jeopardy, know that you are not alone in this dilemma.

Also, if you have children around the house, they may find your gun and play with it.

Comfort Gun: A Hot Water Bottle That Packs Heat


Spotted this gem of a design on Co.Design this morning, adding support to my theory that UK designers/critics are just more comfortable than USers using guns and gun-forms to provoke critical thought.

The Comfort Gun is a hot water bottle that effectively puns on the ritual of sleeping with a pistol beneath ones pillow. I know people who actually do this. And I have observed that gun possession generally has a strong talismanic aspect some gun owners are afforded great psychological safety from just knowing that their Colt/Glock/Beretta is close at hand.

But what I love about this design is the way that it flipped this ritual into the space of the cozy and banal practice of sleeping with a hot water bottle. Instead of the sense of preparedness, intrigue, and danger that I associate with the gun-beneath-the-pillow, Comfort Gun makes me think of Grannies in flanel nightgowns and warm glasses of milk. And then my brain jumbles all these impressions together until I have burly gangsters in flannel nightgowns and cozy Grannies holding smoking guns.

It does this, in part, through the color palette certainly (though there are no shortage of fully operational pink firearms) but also the small quarter-inch edge around the pistol-shape. This was probably a result of the vacum-forming process but serves as the main cue indicating a non-operational gun. In my mind, that quarter-inch rim acts like the frame of a painting, removing the form of the thing from the use of the thing. Very interesting.

Kudos to designer Francis North. More information on this design and designer here.

Nike Shoes Transformed Into Pistols


Yesterdays post examined a piece of childrens furniture that appropriated the gun aesthetic. Today were flipping this idea to look at a collection of stunning concept guns that stole their look from Nike sneakers. Created by Australian graphic designer Phil Robson (aka Fil Fury), each of the Nike Air Max Assault Weapons takes the form of an existing firearm (Beretta, Uzi, etc) and remixes it with a running shoe. The result is a series of surreal, Nike-branded weapons that leaves me wondering what kind of world these objects might exist in.

Making Guns: pistol forms as tools for creation


Ah, those critical UKers! First Tony Dunne on the need for a designers Hippocratic oath, then Francis Norths Comfort Gun. And now Ive found recent RCA grad James Shaw and his Making Guns, three gun-shaped tools for additive creation. Rather than spewing out speeding bullets, Shaws three homemade gadgets respectively shoot out papier mache, pewter, and blobs of recycled plastic.

But whats really fascinating about these funky object-makers is what the use of the pistol form can reveal about human impulses and the desire for control. T
