Default looking to buy a glock 26

I am from michigan, i introduced myself a few months back. I currently own a PX4 storm in 9mm, and would like to purchase a smaller, compact, to carry. i was deciding between the glock 26, SW MP 9c, and the XDsc. ive shot the subcompact glock, in .40, and shot well with it, but would like to keep it in 9mm only because i can afford to shoot 9mm regularly and with the right defense ammo it will be just fine for defense in my opinion. now my question is where have you glock fanatics found the best price for glocks NIB? better yet, in michigan? i have seen them for 450-500... but im sure some guys have seen them cheaper? i have a larger hand and look to add the pearce grip extension as well. my next question is are theyre any suggestions or modifications you guys have done to make this little gun GREAT. thanks for all the help in advance. also, im not sure sure about "generations" but i know some have had problems, and im assuming later generations have fixed those problems. so im looking for id think a later made glock for a different price. thanks

In my area, far from Michigan, the lowest price for new Glocks is the same range you mentioned — I believe the exact price is $479.

The only way I know to get one cheaper is to join the Glock Shooting Sports Foundation. Members get a certifcate (once per year) to buy a Glock at a law enforcement discount. I don't know the exact price, but I believe it comes in at a bit under $400. GSSF membership costs $35. Not every store is a law enforcement dealer, however. The three listed in Michigan are in Lansing, Charlotte and Westland.

For more info, check out Glock Sport Shooting Foundation.

Glock will also sell to LEO & Military (and certain other "service" occupations like fireman, etc.) at basically $100 off list price. You have to get the gun from a Glock LE dealer and you can find one in your area by calling Glock...

I think the prices you quoted are good average prices. To upgrade your glock, buy the XDsc.

shooter, you don't have to have someone else get the Glock for you. The
"LEO discount" refers to Glock's program for selling at a discount to law enforcement officers. They also do the same for active military, and retired military and law enforcement. I also read somewhere that they offer the discount to emergency services workers, airline pilots and others. Something to do with Homeland Security. GSSF members qualify for one purchase per year at the "LEO discount."

That might be a straw purchase and although your intentions are not to violate the law, in my internet lawyer expert opinion you might be violating it.

On the 4473 it asks
Quote:
Are you the actual buyer of the firearm(s) listed on this form? Warning: You are not the actual buyer if you are acquiring
the firearm(s) on behalf of another person. If you are not the actual buyer, the dealer cannot transfer the firearm(s) to
you.
I've seen the LEO/Military discount at gun shows before. The sellers I have seen were pretty strict about requiring some form of ID to prove your military or LEO but your mileage may vary.
