Well they worked they had a Glock 31gen 4 in there a reasonable price $439. I’ve been thinking about a .357 Sig since I joined GT. So many guys swear by it I thought it was time to give it a shot. What sealed it was the free hat.

    That seems to be a pretty good price. My LGS is asking $515 for a 31 here. I was able to pick up a Gen 3 from AIM Surplus for $320 not too long ago.

    This should be a sticky thread.

    I hope I can afford to shoot her now. I bought a 2 boxes at my LGS. $25 a box. I thought .40 was expensive. Time to go online.

    Congratulations and good price on the 31.
    Did the same impulse buy last Saturday. Took home Gen 4 31 $430 out the door. Went looking for a 17C and found the 31. Liking the pistol not liking the cost of ammo. Thankfully reloading dies will be here Monday.

    Nice find, the cost of ammo is the only thing that has kept me from jumping in to the .357 sig world. I already have a G29 and the wife's .380 so those are relatively expensive dates.
    I keep toying with the idea of getting a g32 barrel for my g23 but I really don't want to add another caliber to have to chase down. Shoot it in good health.

    Sounds like a good deal - without the hat! I take it it's used? If so did it come with the factory box and 3 mags?

    Nice pickup. That will allow you to really take full advantage of the round, and annoy the guy (or gal) in the bay next to you at the range... :)

    Nice pick up! Try Georgia Arms for practice ammo. I picked up a case of 500 for $165. Still not cheap, but competitive.

    Thanks guys. I bought it new. The guy said it was sitting a while. He tried to see if he could bring it down more but couldn't. I'm waiting for the range to open. 5 minutes.
