Each of the thirty pistols has been uniquely engraved by one of five Master Engravers who have been certified by the Firearms Engravers Guild of America (FEGA) to commemorate the relationships cultivated during the company’s thirty-year history. The exclusive pistols will be presented throughout the year to exceptional individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the success of GLOCK.  The engraved G17 Gen4 pistols carry a limited production serial number and come with a certificate of authenticity signed by Mr. Glock. The pistols will be presented throughout 2016. “When I brought the GLOCK 17 to America in 1986, I could not have imagined or predicted the success GLOCK enjoys today,” said company founder, Gaston Glock. “Our pistols are the choice of millions for personal and home protection and target shooting.”

“To even think that we would be considered for this in just the few years we have existed is such a powerful testimony to the work and passion of women shooters across the country,” said Carrie Lightfoot, founder of The Well Armed Woman.  “GLOCK has been a valued sponsor and partner in our work to educate, empower and equip women shooters.  Their commitment to safety and education along with a deep respect for the woman shooter makes GLOCK a natural fit for The Well Armed Woman,” continued Lightfoot
