    Hello from the mountains of Southern California. :wavey:
    I consider myself a newbie to handguns I have a couple os 22's a AR-7 rifle and an American Arms mini 5 shot revolver that is holstered in a belt buckle.I decided it was time to get something more substantial that my wife could shoot as well. After much research and discussion with my cop friends I decided on a Glock Gen 3 19.
    Now the adventure begins.I looked everywhere online stores, My local FFL Dealer and went to a Gun Show and could not find one anywhere.I was surprised to find there were almost no guns of any type at the gun show at all. I saw that amo was back ordered and out of stock in a lot of places as well so I waited in a hour and a half amo line and picked up 500 9mm rounds so it wasn't a complete waste of time.
    The only two websites I found that did not show all inventory sold out or back ordered were TheGlockStore and Glockmeister. I tried for a week to contact them by phone and e mail for over a week with no luck. They are probably out of inventory as well but just don't post it.
    So I went ahead and placed an order for a Gen 3 19 with TruGlo TFO green/green night sights, Stainless Steel recoil assy w/ stock spring weight, Glock extended slide stop lever, Glockmeister extended slide stop and back strap.
    It's been two weeks since I placed the order and still have not heard anything back yet.
    Hopefully I will be a happy Glock owner some time soon.
    Since I am a complete newbie and have not finalized my order yet any input on the options I included would be appreciated.
    Thanks to all who have contributed to the wealth of information here.

    Yeah. It's like that everywhere. Stopped by my LGS today and their shelves were bare.
