    I bought it thinking it would be my first collector piece/ safe queen, but now that I have it, I so want to shoot it.

    what do you guys think, put a couple hundred down the pipe???

    I don't own any guns that I don't / won't shoot. The choice is yours alone.

    i never have either, but i saw this nib g22 dpd for relatively cheap(i live in taxachusetts) and bought it thinking it would be my first collector piece. now that i own it, i am thinking of shooting a few rounds though it.]

    how much would this decrease the value of it if any?

    Samboard.....Very nice, I purchased one also in Taxachusetts and shot it already...Lots of the new pistols were for sale here,I wonder if they were available in other parts of the county...A local dealer has a least one in his case now at $595.00 with 2 hi-caps, but didn't see any at the last Springfield show....

    had a great time shooting it. put about 50 rounds through it. i have never had a new glock before. always bought them used. gun shoots nice, way less recoil than my g27. but it is a huge piece. not gonna carry that thing, ever. i am puttin it in the safe and will take it out every once in a while to bring to the range.

    mauper, where do you live?

    I purchased one just like it a few months ago here in Missouri except it has the rail on it. $425 If I remember correctly out the door. Mine had the NY 1 trigger in it but I changed it to a 3.5 connecter with a regular spring. Really like the way it shoots. I have put 100-200 a week down the pipe since I got it.

    kfox,

    the big price diff here in massacomunist is that we cannot buy new glocks from dealers because the gov't oppressors feel the glock is too dangerous a gun... so, the glock is harder to get legally, hence the larger $ amount.

    amazingly, you can get any gun you want illegally real cheap. sucks for law abiding citizens like myself.

    I bought two, one NIB G-27 thats already in the SAFE:whistling:
    No way I'm going to shoot that one, the other a well worn G-22 is my TRUNK GUN.

    I was born and raised in Detroit, so they have nostalgic value to me, wish I could find some DPD marked G-22 mags.:wavey:

    I guess I would ask whats your serial number it looks to be under 1000 if it is I would not shoot it the serial #'s were the stock numbers so if its under 1000 I wouldn't shoot it just because in a few years it will be rare unfired under 1000 serial number. But then again I don't shoot my DPD glocks just because I am always afraid they will Kaboom and i loose a piece of DPD history.

    I own guns to shoot and enjoy. No safe queens here.

    My financial investments are in other areas.


    Your choice. Revisit your intentions for buying the gun. Did it fill a niche in your arsenal? Was your intention to shelve it? Your choice.


    Glocks are out and out performers. It'd be a shame not to get some good use from it.
