I have a family friend and his father is selling a Glock 21. He said it comes with a lasersight and he is asking $450. Is this a good deal for this gun, and is this a decent model of glock? I don't have much info on it right now so I will try to find out more if it is needed.

The G21 is a good gun...with a rather large grip. Unless you have large hands, you may want to handle and shoot the G21 before putting money on the barrelhead. However, even some folks with average-sized hands find the G21 comfortable.

The G21SF accomodates average-sized hands a little better.

Hes right, Sell it to me I have big hands :thumbsup:, But 450 is a good price depending what gen is, and the condition of it, BTW is this your first gun, Have you shoot or do you have a 45acp?

I bought my Glock 21 SF with trijicon night sights from Pro-Force a few months ago, for about $520. They're selling the standard Glock 21 right now for $464.99. If his is in near-new condition I'd say $450 is a fair price considering he's throwing in the laser. What kind of laser is it by the way?

Im not sure what type of laser it is, Ill try to find out. No, I don't have any handguns yet:( (plenty of rifles though), I turn 21 in under three months. Im trying to figure out if it is such a steal that I should jump on it or if I can afford to pass. I would really rather have a 9mm for my first handgun, so if its not a great deal I'll survive.

Pro-force sells to lawmen ,security and firefighters only. There goes the good price. Not a good benchmark.

Its your choice 22cal, 38spl, 9mm . The 45 acp takes time and money to master

Is what sold me on wanting a Glock.
I'd personally jump on it if I saw one at that price, nobody seems to be selling them at all though.

I say hold off on the G21 and buy that 9mm you want when turn 21. Ive been planning my first handgun purchase forever now and when I hit 21 in about a month, I know exactly what I'll be buying.

As mentioned, see if you like the pistol first, don't get caught up in the "i gotta get a pistol asap" trap. I bought a G21 and discovered after a few range trips that I really hated the grip size, and later learned I did not like the grip angle.

Buy it and you can use it as trade bait for a new 9mm.

I'd take that.

450 is a great price for a G21. Glocks tend to hold their value and like Greg Dawg said........I'd take that bait.

I paid 502 OTD for my G21 with 3 mags and trijicons new in box. :43: I got hooked up.

When I turned 21 almost ten years ago, my first purchase was a G21. I remember when I was stuck between a G22, G21 and a stainless fullsize HK.45. At the time I really wanted the HK because it was bling and shiny but it was a little out of my price range. So then the decission was between two calibers of Glocks. My reasoning for the 21 was, if I am going to be limited to 10 rounds, I wanted 10 rounds that made a bigger hole. At the time I didn't consider grip size but it all worked out since I have long fingers. The tag price of a G21 back then was $469!

My Glock 21 is my primary handgun. I love it.

Paid $450 for a used one back in 1995. I'd say $450 for a used one today is a pretty good price.

Try it out at the range. If it feels right in your hand and you hit the target, I'd go for it at that price. My hands are medium to large and it feels right to me. I have many options when my dog barks at night, but I always reach for my 21 and my Pentagon. It has never malfunctioned >3K. Is it my favorite gun? No, but it's a workhorse. Furthermore, if it was used to defend my life and Police were to confiscate as evidence pending an investigation, I wouldn't cry. On the other hand, if my Customized Colt 1911 70 MkIV was taken away for even a couple of months, I just might breakdown and cry.

it depends on the condition of the glock. personally i'd rather spend another $100. you can find new ones for $550 in most places.... then you can pick a different caliber if you're so inclined...

I recently got a Glock 30SF, It's 45ACP just like the 21, and with the SF option fits my smaller hands better. Last time I was out shooting a guy nearby had a Glock 21 and we each shot a few rounds through each others guns. Even though I have small hands I found it was comfortable to shoot, and a lot easier to hang on to than my 30, it's kinda snappy. Any Glock in 45 is an effective reliable piece of personal protection. Ammo wil be your biggest concern.

I just picked up a G21 SF from Pro-Force as well, it was $538+tax/dros, so the $450 is definitely a deal if its in good shape. The laser is an incentive, as long is it holds the rail.

The $464 price squishy is referring to, is just for a plain jane G21, non SF, no night sights. and of course civilans cannot purchase from there.

The G21 is said to be the most accurate of all the Glocks and my own G21 seems to confirm this claim. I own 6 other Glocks in 9mm and 40 in various sizes besides my G21 which gives me the opportunity for close comparison; my G21 wins hands down in the accuracy department.:thumbsup: I can recommend it without hesitation

The 21SF is my primary HD and carry gun. My backup is a Ruger P85.
