Close, but no cigar

  1. After reminding the Finance Committee (wife) that my birthday is in 3 weeks, I almost had her authorization to buy a new G17.

    Academy Sports had a Gen3 for $525.

    I thought about the GSSF option, which was $425 + $60 membership dues + $30-$50 FFL fee = $515-$535. So $525 isn't so bad.

    I got her to handle it and understand why I want it, she almost caved!

    I'm sad, but I don't really need one right now, but I'll get one by this summer: a few gun shows coming up and I'm looking to attend the Dec 1st GSSF shoot in San Antonio. So I suppose I'm in no hurry.

    However, my trigger finger isn't happy with me right now.

    With luck, perhaps I can find a G17 RTF2 at one of the shows.

    ???Why!!! No Cigars ???
  4. I would still go the GSSF route. You'll get a second certificate for your second year. Also, check around at your Blue Label dealers. I've purchased 4 guns, 2 19's, a 23, and a 30 - all Gen4's, with the GSSF certificate and all were at the GSSF price out the door. However, that was in Delaware.

    Happy birthday any way. You can always convince her later.

  7. Do you qualify to purchase a Blue Label Glock?
