I'm new to the forum and I'm in awe over the amount of info here.

I'm interested in the Glock 22, probably the RTF version with the curved serrations. I also like that I can change barrels and go 9mm.

My real interest now is in buying one in the near future :) Wondering where I'd likely get the lowest
overall price in the Southbay area. I'd like to stay brick and mortar this time around

Comments greatly appreciated

I know I know I know you said brick and mortar this time around, but seriously if buying new, most of the time you can get a new glock from a place like glockmeister with shipping, dros, and transfer costs for cheaper than buying one out the door from a california location. (this is not factoring in gssf or leo/mil discounts).

I just went through the same dilemma. But hats off to you if you wanna support local business. Nothing wrong with that either.

Join GSSF, take the coupon they send and go to LC Action and get the LEO price.

If you're in the south SF bay area, first get yourself a GSSF membership from here (http://gssfonline.com/), then drive down to LC Action Police Supply for the bar-none best deal. My Glock 17 was $425.

A GSSF membership takes maybe 3 weeks to process.

gssf is a great deal but it works out to $500 before DROS for a G17, you should look at the classifieds for good deals hint hint.

Sorry– South bay as in SF Bay area. If I can save $50-75 OTD by purchasing online, I could see going that route. Is that too much to expect?

I just went to Targetmasters in Milpitas and they quoted me about $625 OTD (G22) if I understood correctly.

This right here since you're in the San Francisco/South Bay area.

GSSF cost is $35 for one year. GSSF price for a new Glock is $425. Total cost with tax and DROS should be $495 (including GSSF membership is $530).

You won't save doing an online deal because most transfer fees will put you right back at dealer pricing. I say your best bet is to join gssf and wait or buy private party.

Target Masters is one of the highest prices. You could check Sportsman's supply and if you can handle Mike, Almaden Gun exchange. They usually run $525 plus fees.

Thanks–very tempting for sure, but I really want that 22. Targetmaster's wants $547 + all fees and tax ($625 OTD) but it seems you guys are saying this is pretty high? I ain't stuck on them–just trying to get to some kind of realistic bottom line OTD pricing.

I thought that they ONLY deal with LEO? :confused:

Hurry up and join GSSF. LC Action has Glock Days every year in August (look on their website for the dates). Last year the Glock 17 was $399 with two mags (I think the 40 was the same price also).

Thanks all. I apologize for any ignorance. I'll email that GSSF form ASAP :D I've mostly been out of the loop with firearms for more than 15 years. Even then I only had rifles. I purchased a Ruger Mini 14 and 10-22 from Gemco. Anyone remember them? So my handgun experience is next to nil, although my buddy has a G17 that I've shot a few times.

Thanks again for the info,

Regards
