Glock drought

Wanted to buy a Gen 4 G21, but the cupboards are bare.
Anyone else run into a brick wall trying to get a new Glock?

I went Saturday to 5 gun shops and called several more. No Gen 4 19's to be found anywhere around here. I did see atleast one or more 21,22,26,27,29sf,31, and 34 so there are a few out there, just not what I was wanting to pick up.

I wouldn't think the 26,27,30, or 36 would be to much of a problem. I would imagine it's mostly the high cap pistols, but in this political climate I wouldn't doubt it either.

I was able to find some 45acp, but still not luck feeding my 17, 19, and 26.

I wanted a G17L this year. Not going to happen. Maybe put that money toward spiffing up my Springfield Champion with some nice sights.

Theres a little place around here known for their antique firearms(they have a 1962 national match garand in BEAUTIFUL shape), that had a NIB gen 3 26 and NIB gen 4 19 today for $499 and $549.

However, the only place in my area to do the GSSF coupon only had a couple of beat up used glocks, including a 24. They did have a big stack of mags though.

Pistols, mags, all in short supply... I heard various reasons, between panic buying and GLOCK retooling a factory. Around here 17/19/21/22/23/26/27 are all hard to find.

Just saw a barely used 21 at Lee's Pawn and Gun in Margate Florida. Reasonably priced.

Some of the gun stores here have glocks, but are charging 649 for Gen 4s. I've been checking Academy multiple times a week for a Gen4 G19 or G23 and no one has anything. Hopefully I'll find one soon, got tons of giftcards from Christmas waiting to be spent. Haha

Here in Miami ther is a shortgage of many pistols except Glock pistols. Yesterday at the Gun Show I saw dozens of G17, 19, 26, 27,22, 21 Gen 3 and 4 but no magazines at all and almost no ammo.

Must be a shortage. I could have bought a new Gen 3 19 at a shop a week ago for $549 and tax. I bet it is gone now.

A local shop(I'm in the Intermountain west) normally has between 100 and 120 Glocks in stock at any given time-they have had ZERO in stock for the past 3 weeks and no idea when they are going to see more of them.

They were all out of the Gen 4 26 in my area and one place had not received a shipment since October. Had to drive about 100 miles to find one now his big brother Gen 2 19 has company.

When I wanted Gen4 G31 (I know it is not Gen4 G21), my LGS checked a few of his supplier websites, and said 10 rounds mags. I said no, then he called his sources to find me what I wanted.

Could your LGS do the same?

I guess I was lucky to find an used GEN4 G21 at the end of the year.

I live in a small town in northern California with one LGS. After this current panic started, the LGS said they had no idea when or if they would get any new handguns in. I stopped by the LGS on Saturday to look at shotguns when out of the blue the owner said he got a couple of Glocks in. I did not intend to, but I bought a Glock 26 as well as the shotgun.
