Well, I've narrowed my shopping down to a Glock 19. I can get one here from a local dealer for $462. Is that a good price? What are your thoughts on this gun as a CCW?
I don't know where DON is getting his guns, but I think that is a pretty good deal. Unless guns are way cheaper in your area? Is it fixed sites or glocks adjustable, or even night sights? Either way I think its a pretty good deal.
I really enjoy my Glock 23, exact same gun in every way other than caliber (.40). Proven history of realibilty, nice size, high capictiy, put in your time praticing and its the ideal carry gun. I say pick it up!
If that's a new gun at a stocking dealer, I think it's a good price. A person would be hard-pressed to beat it by any significant amount through an online source after paying transfer fees, shipping, etc. Even with a FFL "friend" doing the transfer for free, the savings on a new one would be minimal, IMO. If it is used, you might be able to do better, but probably not by much; it would largely depend on the demand for used Glocks in your local area.
That is a good price for a Glock 19 NIB.
I say it's a great little pistol and worth every penny you are paying for it. Now go buy it and practice, prartice and watch them groups tighten up. Don't worry about $20 or $30 bucks you might have saved through Joe blow's friend. Don't look back, just enjoy your pistol. Here's Mine.
Yes, that's a good price. I can get them NIB here for $459 before tax hi cap. You may find a better deal at a gun show, but I wouldn't hold my breath. The G19 is a very good choice. It was the last Glock I purchased and it should have been the first!
Good price, great gun. Enjoy
The Glock 19 is a great choice for CCW (I carry one myself) and the price you mentioned is good as well. Around here it is hard to find a new Glock for under $500 unless you buy them at law enforcement price which is normally right around $400.
I think you made a good choice.
Hmmm maybe they saw me comming, paid $560 for my G19 with night sights. But to me it was worth it. Kept holding out for a used G19 at my local dealer, but decided to buy new instead. Love the gun. Now if only my carry permit would come in the mail.
My first Glock was a 19 and I stupidly used it for trade fodder for something else. I've had another since then but the finger grooves don't fit my fingers/hand so I got rid of it also. Now if I found a generation 1 without the finger grooves, I'd snap it up. By the way, that $462 price is pretty good for retail (especially if it's an, "out the door" price). You certainly won't be making a mistake if/when you get it.
Just my personal opinion mind you, but I really don't like Glocks. There's nothing "wrong" with them, They are well made and reliable and fairly accurate. I just won't own one.
