    I want to buy a Glock 33 soon. However, my favorite local gun dealer went belly up. The few other dealers in town sell Glocks at way too inflated prices. So---I am thinking of purchasing my Glock online. Any recommendations as to where I should shop? Who should I avoid?

    Thanks,
    psyaudie

    n-yuk n-yuk.

    Seriously give topglock.com a start.
    There are other onlines vendors as well.
    There is one I can't seem to recall but there prices seemed to be very low.
    You may want to do a search on glocktalk and it may come up.

    Also, you may want to check out the auction sites like gunbroker.com alot of glocks new and used for bidding on.

    Do you know if topglock offers the free shipping like the other?

    What sort of reputation does topglock have? I've heard some cautions regarding purchases from gunbroker.com.

    I purchased close to a $1000 with them the end of 2002 and had excellent service.

    If anybody did ever have a problem with them, you need to call them if you have a problem, They are more than happy to resolve any problems you may have.

    I personally would and will do business with them again when I'm in the market for another item.

    They do want repeat customers.

    For online/mailorder everything went smooth.;f

    as for free shipping, nothing is free.
    verify price of item + shipping, I think you wont find much of a better deal.
    What I've found on some deals with free shipping is you wind up paying $20 or $30 more on the item. (just a little smoke screen)

    All I can say do your homework, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    What is the legality of ordering a gun through the mail. Does it still have to be mailed to a FFL dealer? Plus I live in CA, so I'm sure there are additional restrictions.

    If you mailorder a firearm, yes you will still need to go through an FFL.

    With all the costs, firearm, shipping, and FFL fees, I still saved over a $100 on local store purchase.;f

    Going through an FFL is legal in all respects. Doing it mailorder, auction, or internet store gives you a chance to search the best price for the firearm as well as comparing shipping cost.

    Looking at your profile, you would get a better discount than I would, being a civilian.;f

    I actually get the Glock LEO discount at LC Action in San Jose, CA ($425 for the 9/40/357). Other than that some dealers give a 10% LEO discount on certain guns in my area. In the Bay Area, I remember I couldn't find a HK USP 40 Compact for under $799. If I recall a new Glock 17 goes for about $700 with stock sights. So you can guess that 10% off doesn't compare to out of state prices. I just noticed I paid probably at least $100-$150 more for my Kahr PM9 than what non LEO's paid out of state.

    Thanks for teh help

    $700 for a G17?
    I paid $600 for my G35 ;f
    Shipping,FFL fees the lock, stock, and barrel.

    As a civilian, I would have paid $700+ TAX locally.;f

    D&R has been around awhile. The firearms with no prices require a call for quote. I believe they tie their prices on some of their product to a percentage of cost. The cost apparently varies enough to make keeping the prices updated on the web too time consuming.

    Got my G33 at Galyans. It was $494 with tax. Had a deal going where you got 10% when you got one of their in house credit cards. Also got six months to pay.
    This was just a couple of weeks ago.

    Or email Mark Komoroski at mkomoroski@aol.com -- their Glock prices start at around $425. That's where I buy them, since they sell new ones for less than most people want for used ones.

    Try John Lewis at Glockstop. He's located in TX, and a real nice fella to deal with.
