The pistol market is theirs to keep, they dont need to introduce anything new. However the .22 is for kids to shoot. To get Into guns. A airsoft youtuber got invited to glock to shoot the thing and compare it to airsoft guns. It’s obvious there trying to capture a new generation. Also it could be good for a dad to take his kids in the woods and pop tin cans. Less scary than a glock21 just an easy shooting .22 to familiarize new shooters with black scary pistols.
