When and why did Julie Golowski jump ship from the Glock shooting team to Smith&Wesson? Now she shoots the M&P 9mm. What happened :?: They treat her bad at Glock??

Money talks! Educated guess that S&W offered her more money.





By the way....

The RUMOR I heard, so don't beat me up for this, is that she was shooting a Smith and Wesson .45 in some sort of IPSC single stack or limited 10 competition and Glock didn't like that. Again this could be BS so take it for what it is worth. Funny thing is, Glock doesn't even make a product that she could have used in those events.....G36 yea right!

When? 2006 around April/May.



Why? why does anybody change jobs/employers? Better benefit, salary, atmosphere, personal reason.

I heard it in May, at the Bianchi cup, but I bet she moved sometime before that.



She's a great addition to the S&W Shooting Team!!







She's the Best:D

S&W has been very proactive in getting talent from places like Glock. Julie is one example as well as a few reps. If they want to make an impact in the market they need to hire talent and it appears they are doing just that!

Thanks! Its good to be a member. I'm a big fan of polymer based pistols, own three (XD-45, Steyr M357-A1 and Glock 23). I'm hoping to add an M&P pistol to my collection soon.



Take Care and God Bless,
