    Is it 100% that Glocks will no longer be sold in California come 2008 due to the safety issue and Glock not revamping the safety on the gun (which they shouldnt by the way)?

    Just want to know if this is 100% or not.

    It all lies on Glock to pay the ridiculous CA fees.

    Just buy them now before 2008!

    There is no "safety issue" with Glocks. There is however in some cases an "idiot issue" with people. (Don't take this the wrong way, I'm not directing this toward you, but rather toward people who "accidently discharge" their weapon, or intentionally discharge it with intent to commit a crime). I think everyone needs to get their panties out of a bunch over this incident in VA. Glocks will not get banned anywhere. Liberals would like to make you nervous about it though.

    Maybe I wasnt clear. I shoot Glocks in IDPA and have one in almost every model. However, my quesiton was NOT if they are safe or good guns. My question was is the California issue CONFIRMED that Glock will not be selling in California come 2008?

    Well it is really up to Glock if they are planning on conforming to California wants. And then I guess on the other side it is up to California if they are really going to put a ban on Glocks due to the safety system they have installed. I really dont know. I am half tempted to stock up but dont want to be an idiot if they arent going anywhere.

    for starters....where are you getting your information? i would like to know.

    i was under the impression that glock could continue to sell their older models in california.....but after januaray 2007 couldnt sell any NEW models if they didnt have a mag release safety. hence the non-sale of the G21SF in cali. of course...i could be totally wrong. that's why im wondering where you got your info from. :)

    You are correct. As long as GLOCK continues to pay the CA fees, they may continue to sell any/all of their models currently on the CA approved list.

    Just goes to prove that the lame politicians in CA aren't really concerned about "safety" in firearms. It's all about "$$$$$" and self-interests. :upeyes:

    Some people need to get some facts and stop being so ignorant. This may help-

    What I know. Every gun manf. must apply to have their products sold in the state, thus "pay a fee". Then it gets tested. (drop test, etc...) Then the gun has a certified date its allowed to be sold in the state. Its a continuous cycle.

    To back up what I am saying, click on the link below and select "Glock". Some of the dates of all the Glocks listed come up well into 2008. So it looks like Glock has submitted some products, paid some fees and got extentions. I count 15 models availible in 2008. (marked with a *)

    Find it here- http://certguns.doj.ca.gov

    If I were Mr Glock, if CA thought MY guns weren't safe for the citizens of the state, I wouldn't allow them to be sold to the government/LEO's of the state either. Ronnie Barrett has the right idea, IMHO.

    DUDE? Did you read anything I wrote above? CALIFORNIA APPROVAL PENDS ON GLOCK APPLYING, NOT THE STATE. HELLO?!?! Look above, fifteen (that 15 for you simple types) Glocks have already been approved for the year 2008. That means California DOES think they are safe enough.

    Please- When it comes to California issues, pull you head out of the sand.

    In reality, the United States Constituion should have the final say on all firearms. And it of course, does not single out any firearm for exclusion from individuals.

    I agree completely.


    Barrett was the first thing I thought of when reading this.

    I would like to see all the big gun manufacturers get together and boycott California.
