Default Info from Gander Mountain on Glock

I really do not believe this story, but this is what I was told today by a clerk in the firearms dept of Gander Mountain West Palm Beach. I called asking if they received any Glock 17' Gen 4s today. The sales clerk replied, "it will be a very long time before anyone gets a shipment". He told me that Glock is moving out of NY State because of the ban on high capacity magazines. He said this has stopped production of all Glocks. He also said he does not know how long it will be until Glock moves into their new facility and begins production.
First of all, I thought Glock was in Georgia not NY. I have scoured the internet and cannot find any evidence to support Gander Mountains firearms sales clerks info.
I figure, if anyone would know for sure, it would be on this forum. I truly cannot understand why there still aren't any Glocks in the LGS. I would think Glock would be producing 24/7 while the demand is good. Instead Glock is enabling gougers to make big money on their fine product. I have been calling lots of Gun Stores and they all tell me in disgust that they cannot get a Glock 17 Gen 4 and most other Glocks at this point in time. They just trickle in every so often.

Sounds like he fed you a load of crap. Not sure where he heard that though or if he made it up? By me I can find most glocks within an hour of where I live in the Chicago suburbs.

Gander mtn sucks. They tried to charge me 650 for a g19 before all the shootings happened. I only go to gander mtn as a very last resort. Glock is in Smyrna , GA. Never heard of them being in New York.

I am looking for a G17 Gen 4. I am not willing to pay gouging prices. I have been able to find plenty on gunbroker.com for $600+

Thanks for looking.
