    As the title says, do they? I heard about a shop that was charging extra for the lock, but I thought they all came with a lock inside the box (I live in MD, so who knows?).

    Thanks!

    Yes, they do, and I have so many laying around, I now leave them at the shop when I get a new gun.

    Thanks guys. I'm going to a shop, hopefully today, one of two in MD that accept the GSSF coupon, but I heard on another site that they charged someone else extra $ for the lock, which I find obscene! So I'm going to bring a lock from a past purchase with me so they can't try to do that to me. If they try, I'll just drive the hour to the OTHER place that accepts the GSSF coupon. Thanks!

    Are you asking about the cable lock or the locking Glock box? Some shops may charge extra for the locking box, but none should be charging more for the cable lock, as it comes with the gun from the factory.

    I've been forced to buy a lock when receiving a used pistol (that didn't come with one) at a local FFL. I think the OP is trying to avoid having to do that by bringing his own.

    I was asking about the cable lock. All guns bought in MD must have a trigger lock of some type. However, if they come IN the glock box, I certainly should not be charged for it, no? That would be like charging me for the magazines, or the brush, or the manual, or whatever else comes in the box. So I'll bring my own from a previous purchase so they don't try to do this BS to me. I never use the locks for my other guns, as they are useless.

    All new Glocks sold in the US should come with the cable lock. Dunno about elsewhere in the world.
    Glock offers an integral lock model for the commie states that require it. I think it costs more too.

    When buying a handgun in Maryland it is in the state LAW that a lock MUST be purchased (even the one already included)...the shop has no choice in the matter. Usually they are a cable lock or life jacket for about fifteen bucks...but some shops are out of control as you all know.

    As of last saturday they do. I actually like it. I was planning on buying a lock when I got my 17 but I was pleasantly surprised when it came with one. (This was my first purchase of a firearm.) I know that all locks can be defeated, but its nice to know that since I don't have a gun safe, I at least have it locked so little ones cant get into it.

    Ideally, I want to get a keypad safe, then I can leave my 17 unlocked, and ready to go at a moments notice.

    To my knowledge all Glocks are shipped with a lock.

    If you mean by "his" state, my state, you are wrong. I do not have to have a lock ON the gun. It just has to have one with it. Go back under your rock if you have nothing but misinformation to contribute.

    FWIW, I think your entire state is a joke, including the fact that Deliverance was filmed there! "He got a real purty mouth, ain't he?"

    The cable locks they come with are junk.
