    I committed a typo. I should have typed less than $600.00. It is a Gen 5 MOS. Nothing is tax free in Kentucky. :crying:

    I finally fondled a G19 gen 5 at GT Distributors in Austin a couple of days ago, and I was actually impressed with it. I've said in other threads that I'd probably never purchase another full sized or compact Glock anymore unless they address the undercut of the trigger guard. I used to shoot a lot in my earlier years, and I'd constantly had an open sore on my right middle finger. I don't know if I was just holding it differently or there really is a slight design change, but I'm taking them off of my naughty list for now.

    Also, this is neither here nor there, but my wife was at the PX yesterday, and I told her to take pics or video of the gun cases. I saw that there was a Colorado compliant G-19 gen 5 with 3 10 rd mags for $550.00 - which is of course without tax. There was a regular G-19 gen 5 with 3 15 rd mags next to it, but the price was covered.

    I thought Blue Label prices were set by Glock.
    Can the gun store lose its preferred status with Glock for doing that?

    My department switched out guns around 2010, G22/23 for G19/17. In the middle of the deal we were told by Glock that the dealer was in trouble and the trade and order was to be cancelled. It wasn't a huge order, about 100 guns, but it was a lot of red tape at our end, with admin, finance, city council, etc, so we didn't want it to fall through. We pled our case to Glock directly and they allowed the deal to proceed, one of the last allowed by the dealer.

    We later heard that it had something to do with the dealer selling Blue Label guns and red label prices. It was a fairly big thing because several of the executive officers got indicted on federal charges, racketeering or wire fraud, I think.

    8 years ago I bought my first blue label Glock. Gen 3 Model 22. Prices were great comparing to the commercial market and one officer could buy up to 3 handguns per year in this program. Right now I'm not even looking as IOP by Glock here. It's nuts. One may save maybe $50 if that and it's down to one pistol per year. I'm far more inclined to buy second hand instead where sometimes a brand new or very lightly used, pre-owned pistol would be discounted at 40% level.

    yes and no..there are true blue label dealers that sell them for what Glock lists they should...and then there are dealers that claim to be LE "dealers" but can set their prices where they want...we have 1 about 1.5 hours south thats a TRUE LE dealer their prices are what they list for on Glocks LE site....the local place about 1 mile away claims to be a LE "dealer" now they do have lower prices on their "LE" products BUT they ARE NOT the same price as Glock has their LE stuff listed at...im guessing its probably $50 more maybe $50-75 but still less than the "regular" price...

    Ends up ALMOST being a break even proposition when I have to drive a 2.5 hour round trip with gas and all...

    Correct, there are blue label dealers and dealers that stock blue label. The difference can be substantial.

    Yes. We have a true blue label dealer but they are on the coast and its the same deal. About a 2 hour round trip plus tolls. My diesel truck gets about 14MPG mixed driving. I like to support my local gun store, veteran owned, so if they can come close to blue label prices I factor fuel, tolls, and hassle and I buy it from them. It saves me the rigmarole and helps support a small local business owned and run by a bunch of guys I like to hang out with. I don't buy a gun every day (as much as I would like to) so it's worth the difference to me for the peace of mind.

    the worst is a shortage of common sense.

    Yep, and again, don't go by the site for current availability. They had a TON of several Glock models even though the show out of stock on the site. Also, their site doesn't list the SIG P365 XL, but if you are there in the store, you will see one in the SIG area prominently display.

    So, as with GT Distributors not having their site up to date and accurate, check with the stores you want to do business with directly instead of relying on their web sites for accurate information on pricing, stocking and availability.

    I called before driving 45 minutes to their store. Unfortunately I was on hold for 35 minutes. I was on my morning walk with AirPods so it wasn’t too bad. But still.

    It's a good resource for people wondering about Blue label pricing.

    Wow. Been about 2-3 years since I bought a blue label 17, but it was $398.

    Find a new gun shop. I'd never set foot in the place again.

    They even had a G-3 G-19, for $398.20,
    I didn’t see a G-19x, all Gen 4/5 standard ($398.20) add $ for N/S, G-42/43 $358.20.
    They are doing the Veterans BL deal until 11 Nov too, for Hoosier Veterans.

    P.S. It was hard to pass up the G-19 Gen 3.

    BP, you must be talking FT Apache, they do get Blue Label, however they add a "$50 "Finders Fee", to the price they want for them, had to have a G-43 when they first came out years ago, I got one there and paid their "Fee" for it, Jenkins doesn't do that.
