(Mother Jones) — Once a year the Austrian gun manufacturer Glock puts out a glossy, full-color magazine called Glock Autopistol, packed with buyer’s guides for new items, like the G22 Gen4 with tactical laser light, and interviews with celebrity endorsers.

It also publishes movie reviews.

“Angelina Jolie sure does love GLOCKs,” writer John Fasano gushed in a 2011 wrap-up of movies featuring the company’s products. “She lit up the screen with her G18 in the family hit man actioner Mr. & Mrs. Smith and hit last summer’s multiplexes as a CIA agent who has to go on the run when she is accused of being a Russian spy in [Evelyn Salt]. Any GLOCK aficionado worth their salt knows that when Angelina shares the scene with the Austrian super gun it’s hard to know where to look!”
