    I was set on getting myself a Glock 19 today, but it seems like not a single shop in my area of WI has any Glocks at all. Is this just my area or is this nation-wide?

    Remember shipping? I went to a sportmens ware house yesterday, the place was almost sold out of everything. I did ask why and the older guy said the shipping can't get through due to the protest. I was able to buy 200 rounds of 10mm though, but all .45 and most of 9mm, 556 were all gone.

    It’s like, nobodies been awake the last 3 months.

    Covid panic then anarchist rioting has wiped out the supply of all guns, especially pistols.

    Well hopefully after Trump wins a second term, all this will quiet down and everything will be back in stock.

    I went into a new (for me) range / gun store yesterday to shoot some reloads. When I pulled into the parking lot, it looked like a used car lot. It was just about full. Inside, the place was packed. I thought I'd have to wait to get on a lane, but just about everyone else was there buying guns! The cases were just about empty of anything self-defense oriented. I saw an employee coming out of the back carrying just about all the boxed Glocks he could carry. It was crazy.

    I just got a G34. I went after a G17, but the guy convinced me that what I really wanted was a 34. He was right. He did it because he HAD a 34, but he was still right.

    I said, “Yeah, I guess with all the sales, guns are hard to get these days?” He told me, “I don’t know what’s happening with Glock. I’m getting regular shipments from Ruger and everybody else- even hard-to-get stuff. But Glock just isn’t keeping up.” I also know that Glock is filling a big government order, so...

    As noted in the March record sales thread, this explains a lot regarding why you are having a tough time finding the handgun you want!

    https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/march-nics-numbers.1820290/page-2#post-28967758

    March was the top gun sales month of any month in history (3.7M NICS checks). April broke all prior April sales total records. And now...

    ...the May numbers are in. No surprise. Once again they obliterated the prior May gun sales records. By almost 700,000 checks!

    Given the current violence, anxiety, and fear, I have little reason to believe June will be much different.

    3,091,455 NICS checks were conducted in May 2020 (previous record of 2,349,309 checks set in May 2019). Source: https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/nics_firearm_checks_-_month_year.pdf/view

    Bottom line I am just tired of tinkering with 1911s and want to try something else. Police and military all seem to use Glock must be a good reason.

    Glock I'm sure is having the same problems as all manufacturing at the moment. Over demand for the product. You think there is unrest now, watch when he gets re-elected. Guns and ammo will be flying off the shelves from now on, I see no end in sight for the foreseeable future.

    I can tell you that i live in a fairly large city, and you cant hardly find a decent pistol anywhere. Went to 4 shops today, and finally found my G27 at Academy Sports. but the other 3 shops were all sold out of anything bigger than a 380.

    I see another scenario. What if he is not re-elected.

    There are 77 days between Election Day and Inauguration Day. You think post Sandy Hook was bad, well ...
