    Evening, i understand that due to recent events, people all of the sudden want to go and buy guns. One thing ive noticed is the shop that I frequent hasn't had any Glocks in over 3 months?! Does that sound right? All the other surrounding area shops have had 3-5 different shipments in bulk (one store got 60) and the following 2 weeks another 40 came in but this store has been very quiet. When I asked them about it, all the salesman said was "I think theyre done for the yr, i don't think we will be getting any for the next few month's." Id rather invest in my local shop because I know and have dealt with them for more than a decade but I just think its weird especially when the local range has had more Glocks come in than them.

    They are in short supply but available none the less, in my neck of the woods that is. I just got a 48, black slide with NS. They did not have 34s or 17Ls, everything else they had one flavor or the other, gen 4 or 5.

    My shop in north East Ohio usually has about 50 glocks in the case.
    All sold out now.

    What gun isn't in short supply right now? My local dealer has empty shelves and can't get anything in. He said he was thinking about closing his shop for a while, for lack of merchandise.

    This morning, my LGS had a used 34 with a hand job stippling, looked like it was carved with a pocket knife, and covered with Talon grips for $600.

    Ugly only a mother could love. But I bet it's gone next week.

    I wouldnt be surprised. Heck I wouldn't be surprised if they brought back some muskets and they'd probably sell out.
