    Does anyone know if Glock ships fired casings with GSSF purchases? I'm in NY so if not, that would mean extra time for my dealer to get the gun to the test facility before I get my grubby little hands on it. Thanks.

    I got one with my purchase - which I don't need in Illinois. So you'll probably have one in yours - especially since you do need it.

    ALL Glock's are shipped with TWO fired cases located in a small envelope inside the case. Glock does this so that the firearms can be shipped to all states.

    They sent fired cases with mine to Maryland, which we do need. What surprised me was that I got 2 17 round mags, which I am not supposed to get.

    If you would like to trade those Hi-caps for 10 rounders, PM me.

    Why do some states require that pistols be shipped with 2 fired cases?

    google "ballistic fingerprinting"

    Maryland and New York are the only two states doing it. California had a trial, not sure if they put it into production yet.

    I thought that had to do with the grooves on the actual bullet? Are they using the striker mark on the fired primer to determine a match? That seems much less likely to hold up in court. Seems a striker would be very similer to all other similer model pistols?

    They are not! The slide face, firing pin hole and firing pin are slightly different and Glock barrels can be changed out really easy!

    Strikers can be changed out just as easy, and alot cheaper than a barrel.

    Now you are trying to insert common sense into the law?

    That's True! But you can't buy a slide that cheap. The patten that is left on a fired a case is in part the opening in the face of the slide.

    The cases get provided to the state not the gun; there's no requirement for your dealer to get the gun to a 'test facility' - that's what the case envelope is for.

    10/4 on that WIG19, but if they did not come with a fired case then my dealer would have to take the gun and have it fired at one of (I think) 6 locations throughout the state so they could have the casing on file.

    As a police officer who has been involved in this sort of thing, the shell casing is a far more reliable piece of evidence then a bullet. Please believe me when I say that matching a shell casing to a specific gun is as easy (maybe easier) as matching fingerprints.

    How does a dealer handle taking a used handgun onto his/her 'bound book' if the presenting owner doesn't possess the case envelope? Do I understand you to say that for every used gun the dealer must haul them to yon 'test facility' to produce a fired case before they can be sold?

    Or no one does trades? Or are there only used owners... :upeyes:

    WIG19, Here's the most ridiculous part. It's only for new guns. If I were to buy a used gun, even from out of state, then no casing would be necessary.
