    I have seen some deals online, but remain skeptical as to how one trusts buying a Glock (or any gun) online. Are there any benefits vs. simply paying more at an established retailer? If so what are examples of reputable sites that I can trust? Thank you in advance.
     
  2. Budsgunshop.com is seemingly one of the better online dealers.

    Moved from Glocks for Sale to appropriate sub forum...Glock Forum

    ...as the former is a classified section for the sale of Glocks only

    I have used Davidson's GalleryOfGuns.com several times. They have good prices, ship quick, and the dealers get a bigger cut of the sale than straight FFL transfers. I bought a Glock through another store online and was surprised by a $50 transfer. Doing it through GalleryOfGuns.com sees to eliminate most of the surprises.

    Price wise you will save money and if you know what you want it can be a good deal for you.

    Of course buying online is bad for local dealers (at least theoretically).

    +1 for Bud's Gun Shop. I have purchased there and my experience was very good. They have some of the best pistol prices on the net!!

    My local gun shop generally sells below sticker price. I'm not sure if this is common practice as I've only bought a few guns. Thank you for the link.

    I bought my "Talo" Glock 26 from Davidson's . You can choose which local dealer you want, prices will vary. The dealer charged $10 for the transfer, and had it for me the next afternoon. I'm very happy with my purchase.

    I paid $12 for shipping and paid 5 bucks for insurance. My FFL charged me a $20 transfer fee.

    No sales tax either unless you're in the same state as Bud's which I think is KY.

    Hope that helps.

    I really like http://galleryofguns.com

    You can use there Gun Genie to find best prices. You need to put in your zip code to get local places that you can pickup from but prices are usually pretty good.

    also, http://www.whichgun.com helps you choose different guns, and usually shows reviews and prices so you have a good idea on the prices you get using the Gun Genie (above).

    GT Dist

    all are reputable dealers that I have bought from without problems, and all sell Glocks. For used Glocks GT Dist prices are unbeatable.
