    I was in Tony's Guns and Police supplies today and saw the owner, Tony Ashy,
    try to steer a customer away from a new Glock in favor of an older, used 2nd
    generation Glock pistol. The reason? Mr. Ashy told the customer that if he
    purchased the newer Glock that he could not use pre-ban magazines in it.

    This is a common ploy used by some dealers into selling a potential buyer an
    older (often overpriced) firearm in which they have little money invested
    hence a higher profit margin.

    A dealer might only make $50 on the sale of a new Glock, but a used Glock
    might net the dealer several hundred dollars in profit esp. if sold for only
    a little less than the price of a new one.

    Of course, Tony's Guns will be happy to sell you some first generation
    pre-ban magazines for the bargain price of $150 and up to go with that
    "pre-ban" pistol.

    yeah i know what you mean. when i bought my first glock it was a first gen 22 and i asked where the hicaps were for it. he told me that i couldnt legally own the gun cause i wasnt the one that bought it before 94 and the law only applied to those who had purchased the mags before the ban. heee yeah, well i still bought the gun, couldnt pass up a g22 with two klinton mags for $325.
