    Welcome to Glock Talk.
    There has been...for 35 years.

    Military and LEO agencies use stock Glock pistols...no tinkering with internals allowed. :)

    Where is that? It is one of the few places folks wouldn't want to put some used guns up for sale, because places around here have guns flying off the shelves! The NICS data matches what I am seeing (HUGE increase in sales volumes, resulting in ammo and guns being spread thin).

    They are shipping them. Just find out when the next shipment is due and run on down.

    Or shop online.

    Best time to buy firearms, ammo, and magazines is when the good times roll. When the SHTF and TEOTWAWKI comes it's too late. Good luck and be safe.

    traveled 2 hours to get a blue label 43, lgs had BL 43 with night sights but that wasn't what I was looking for.

    and ya, the gun counters were hopping, but a short wait getting on the range.

    There are no 9mm handguns anywhere in my area. My wife wanted a CCW and I was able to find a G26 at Sportsman's Warehouse online just before Mothers Day. They had G17's earlier this week online but they disappeared in less than 24 hours. If you have one in your area keep an eye on the website.

    I couldn't find a G42 anywhere online... so looked on gun forums and found one right here on GT!
    In my opinion, better to have high demand for guns and ammo than slow sales.. keeps the industry relevant and busy! (which equates to new designs and competition between manufacturers... which is better for the consumer!)

    Our local Cabelas in Hamburg, PA opened today. THey had a fraction of their usual Glock offerings. G40 MOS, G45, G43X, G20SF and G26.

    Same boat here. Like everyone here I own several GLOCKs but I wanted to add a 19 as an extra home protection gun that would fit my wife.

    I had to make a lot of phone calls before I found a store that had just one Gen 5 left in stock. It was a four hour round trip drive to get it but I have it now and it was worth it. Hopefully they'll start filling in the shelves again shortly.

    My last trip to the LGS's had all of the cabinets pretty empty; Plenty of Kimbers, revolvers and long guns though. Prices were stupid across the board.

    Yesterday, I asked the gun dealer I deal with to try and locate a G30. He was able to get me a G42 and G26 recently but today his email stated no good with his distributors on a G30.

    gunstores near me have tons of glocks, most new gun buyers seem to be going for the used stuff.

    Maybe other Glocks but I can't find an online dealer that has a G30. I must have a dozen notify me when one comes in email address notifications..

    Gunbroker just had a new G30 sell for $790 with shipping. Add another 3% if a credit caard was used. Wow!

    If you can find a used 23 Gen 3 it is a LOT of gun. I have bought 2 in the last 6 months or so for < 350. It is a 3 caliber platform 9mm/357Sig/40. So are several other of the larger bore Glocks. Just a though.

    I have a G22 and G35 serving as 2/3 gun pistols with 9mm barrels and they have been flawless through 1000s of rounds.

    One of my G23s is dedicated to 9mm and has ran flawless.

    For SD or EDC, it would be best to have the native config. However, none of the above I would hesitate to use for they are proven. YMMV.

    I’m taking a 4th gen G22 and a pair of 870s to the local shop tomorrow. Less than 900 in them all told and the owner says I’ll probably double my money.
    Looks like the time to get the return on my investment and upgrade some stuff.

    Another reason to go for the G43X or G48. Plenty of 48's in my area FS, not so much on the 17s or 19s.
