Default buying glock

You can buy a Glock at a savings at gun shows SOMETIMES! But, be sure to price out the gun you want on line at several discount on line gun sellers.
Whatever price you see on line, add in the cost of shipping and FFL transfer fees to see how much your are really paying. Then decide.

I picked up my Glock 35 Gen 3 for $570 NIB. Which was lower than the gun stores.

Just keep in mind average prices gen3 is $500 while gen4 is $550. If u can get lower than that.. grab it. Remember to add tax.. if applicable.

Its hard to find a "great deal" at a gun show. Do some research online, check as many places as you can find and compare prices. Go to gun shops/pawn shops and look around. A NIB glock should be NO MORE than $550 "period".

Or there's another way getting a cheap Glock. Apply for 2 years GSSF ($80) membership which will allow you to purchase Glocks at LEO pricing. Which is $420 for gen4, in nevada. That 2 years membership will get you 2 coupons which only be sent to you once a year.
First purchase will save you $550-(420+80)=$50. Second purchase will save you another even more, $550-420=$130.
I'm sure majority of Glock owners have more than one.
Hope it helps..

Depends on the dealer! My friend bought a Glock 22 for $510 Gen 4. The business is ZXgun.com if you want to look at there site. Thats who I bought my G35 from too.

G34-35 are the Tgt or competitive line of Glocks right ? Do they still come w plastic adj sights that really suck ? Would you do it again vs the ever popular G19 etc? Just curious.

Yea the sights aren't the best!! I would buy it again, but I do want a standard full size or maybe a compacy Glock! My G35 is my EDC! they call the G35 practical/tactical. I did buy a Lone wolf conversion barrel to shoot 9mm. Real nice just swap barrels and you are ready to shoot 9mm.

You can even upgrade to 10mm but you will probably have to replace the spring as well. Glock has known about the sight "issue" for quite some time but either doesn't give a damn or is too stubborn to change. In my area, they are $120 extra, so people are paying for the extras and I am always irritated when manufactures take customers for granted.

Glock is not the only company w this issue. I've been hearing some real horror stories about Kimber and their lack of response w solos and I can but hope its Internet vitriolic hype.
