Default Cheapest place to buy

Looking into buying my first handgun and I'm thinking i can't go wrong with a glock, but where can you find the lowest price for a gen4 G19 on the web (new or used)? It seems everyone sells a gen4 G19 for $550 after tax and shipping, is that the lowest price for a new one on the net? The used gen4 G19's I find on the net aren't that much cheaper.

Would a gun show or a local gun shop have better prices then buying online?

Thanks

If you ever need service you may wish you bought it from your local gun shop. Besides, by the time you pay transfer fee and taxes it won't be any cheaper. Compare...

Welcome to the Forum matthew1201.

I always go to my local gun store & just tell them what I'm up to. Most of the time he'll come down some on guns he has in stock, and by the time I pay the Shipping & Handling, Insurance, credit card fee, etc... His price is usually cheaper. Then, if I ever find a smokin' deal on something he doesn't stock, and I have it shipped to him, he kinda forgets to charge the tax thing. He also does minor gunsmithing for free, like sights, mag releases, etc. Of course it's up to me to cultivate that kind of relationship.

Welcome to the Forum! I also vote for the local gun stores. You usually get much better prices and service from them. I hope you enjoy yourself here.

If you go on this site you can find out from the comfort of your home or office just how much it will cost and it is Buying from your LGS!

I have bought 2 or 3 guns this way. I mostly buy used at distressed prices! But lately it has been harder to find deals!

I've looked there and maybe it's just in my area but they don't have any gen4 G19's in stock. Do you happen to know how often they update there stock?

Thanks

If you're in Phoenix, Az.
Check out Arizona firearms collectibles and Pawn.
They have used LE trade in Glocks for $380.
And they are in REAL good condition.

Welcome from NC! Gen4 G19 is a great choice.
