I see what they go for on GB & what people pay for on forums & it makes me cringe.

I agree with this but he was in no tough situation, just was not a "glock" guy as he stated. Gun shop offered him $300 so he was tickled to death with the $350 price. I did throw in a PMAG for his new AR too...

Even with the LEO deal from Glock, I still paid $450 for my G22 Gen4 NIB. I bought a G23 Gen3 off a buddy for $400 and have no regrets.

That's what I was thinking... $450 for a Gen4 is a great price because most of us don't get the LE/Mil discount - so getting a Gen4 for $350 is almost unheard of.

I don't understand why the guy was going to sell it to a gun shop for $300 either! I'd learn to like Glock first!

Anyway, nice buy, OP ... and you might want to check out Glock's free Gen4 RSA upgrade. A couple months ago I posted a thread in this forum with a link to the Glock page.

I really got to get on the ball. I really haven't had to deal with shipping. Im getting closer though because I'm thinking about thing the herd. It's just a matter of Capitalism. Sell were you can get the most money & that's defiantly GB & forums. I even have a C&R.
