A month ago a site had it for $411. That site now has it at $511, so it may have been a pricing error. They honored it though.

Generally speaking, new guns are more reasonable than used on the BST sites. For some reason some folks still think they're used Glock is worth $700 when the LGS has new for $549-$599.

Police trade-in pistols are still great deals though (y)

Prices have been gradually coming down. They're better than they were this time last year, but we're still not back to pre-COVID prices yet.

Purchased my first Glock few months back, a G19/5 at my LGS for $529. I was okay with that.
Was not really looking for a new pistol as the previous month bought a Shadow Systems MR920 Combat for just over $700, same store.

Just ordered that gun (Hellcat OSP) for $464+$15 for shipping. So $479 delivered. Also ordered a Holosun 507k for it for $250. It would be great if prices would drop on ammo and components.

I still see pre scamdemic $300 SD9s going for nearly $400.

Firearm sales slowed way down once the stimulus checks stopped being issued.
Lots of non-shooters and non-gun-owners wrecked the gun market in 2020 and 2021 when the stupid over-response to CoVid-19, ridiculous huge stimulus checks, and BLM/PANTIFA wrecked the country and scared everybody.

For some reason it's different here just recently.

Prices had come down a good bit, but from what I saw locally yesterday prices have risen again where I live. Yesterday I bought another Shield Plus while I could get the rebate. (For when a few of the grandkids turn 21; they like mine.) I got it at Academy Sports and the price had increased $30 from a month or so ago, from $499 to $529. I'd have thought they'd just increased the price because of the current $50 rebate, but I noticed their prices on some other handguns had also increased $20-30 from the last time I looked, so it wasn't just their Shield Pluses.

I've been in there so much the people at the gun counter recognize me now. 😂

Of course groceries and gas have gone up a lot, too, so it's not just guns.

Before I went in I called my favorite, and maybe now the only remaining, local gun store and their price on the Shield Plus is now $579. :( I don't know if they've raised their prices on other guns as well, but that's definitely a recent increase. There aren't many local firearm sellers where I live.

I had a $15 store coupon which I used at Academy and also got my usual 5% discount for putting it on their card (worth getting for the discount if you buy guns there), so those brought the Academy price down to $489. That was about as low as I could have bought one from online sellers after adding in a $30-40 FFL fee for the transfer, plus I got to inspect the pistol before deciding to buy it and got it on the spot. I have to pay GA sales tax either way. So counting the $50 rebate I got it for $439.

That isn't a bad price for the pistol, but that was after two discounts and the rebate.

They also had the 13-rd magazines for $37.50 before any discounts. As soon as the coupon they gave me kicks in in a couple of days, I'm going to buy an extra or two. They didn't have any of the 10-rd magazines in stock.

I based my post on gun show pricing, not the retail outlets. Gun show pricing is usually less expensive than a store.

I was just commenting in general. But retail prices had come down locally for awhile, but they sure seem to be up again now, at least where I live. I was surprised yesterday.

Revolvers are harder to find than pistols, too. I've been looking for a specific .38 spl to give to my daughter later and it's out of stock everywhere.
