    After 7 yrs. without a Gunshow here in town finally one this weekend so had to go before work today looking for Ammo Cans, powder and primers. I found all of those then a Shark Gills Glock G22 caught my eye, Night sights, NIB and Blue Label for $599 + tax....mmmn....after some haggling we settled on $575 OTD with both being happy, not a steal but I may not see one locally again. It feels very good in the hand. Test fire date of 14 July 2009.

    Ammo cans? Check. Powder? Check. Primers? Check. Gun that puts a smile on your face regardless of price? Check. Congrats. :wavey:

    If you did not buy it you would regret it. The night sights & 3rd mag make up a good portion of the slight extra cost. Besides, the SHARK GILLS, not fish gills, are cool, mean and insidiously evil!!!

    Enjoy your new Glock. I agree that not every gun show is good but I disagree that there is never anything good or bargain priced at any show.

    I couldn't comprehend paying that much for a RTF Glock, but opinions vary. There is a NIB red label RTF sitting in the case at my local range for the past couple of years for $499, nobody seems to want it.

    If it would not have had the Night Sights and had not been a Blue Label plus had the gills I would have passed it up but I think I came out OK since thats just what I had been looking for online.

    DFin...I changed my post on the Gills:embarassed: Thanks....

    I was amazed at the quality and quantity at the GunShow for us here in SmallVille Flyover land, very good prices maybe cause of the competition, especially on handguns. Very crowded all day as I went back again after work on the same dime.

    It was NIB Blue Label so it came with everything, lock, fired shell casing, 3 mags, loader, manual etc.
    He had a like new Gen. 2 G23, he had $469 on it but I do think it had NS as well. Cash talked so probably could have made a deal on it also.
