I'm looking to purchase my first glock in the next week or so. Three questions: online or local dealer? If online, who do you recommend? with the online stores, have you had any complications sending a check in lieu of a credit/debit transaction?

Thanks in advance.

I purchased both of mine locally for 2 reasons. 1) I get to have it when I pay for it! 2) "If" you have any problems they won't give you a bunch of grief because you didn't buy it there.

Local Gun Store or Gun show.

Shop around you will find the best shop out there.

If you shop online don't forget you have to pay a transfer fee and shipping and possibly depending on the state you live in any number of fee's.

So as I said at the top. Locally...

I prefer going to my LGS because a. I'm supporting a community business, b. they have great guys willing to answer any and all questions, c. it's a great social time, meet other like minded individuals, and d. best of all, they have lay away available!

I agree, local, walk-in shops are the way to go. However, if you're proficient at solving minor issues and already have a good relationship with your local store, you can find deals via web dealers. But you will always win in the long run supporting local in this business. Just my opinion.

Local gun shop. The gun shows around me are usually more expensive than the 3-4 shops I frequent. They are fun to go to because you can find anything. I have just seen some dealers that raise their prices because most people think they are getting a deal there. Online, you still have to have it shipped to a ffl holder and pay the transfer fee.

If I were going to purchase another Glock pistol (or magazines) on-line, then I would definitely buy from Ed's Public Safety. They have a huge selection of in-stock pistols; the prices are fair, and their service and tech support are second to none. They've helped me out in the past; and, today, I can't say enough good about them.​

I would rather spend the extra dollar and support my LGS. Normally the price is very close to online plus I do not have to wait or pay a FFL transfer fee.

It won't hurt to look around and shop online, but its best to purchase from your LGS. There you can actually see the people you're dealing with and probably work some sort of deal.

My local guy is high on his prices and doesn't give LEO discounts on guns or ammo.

In the central NJ area, I've found Atlantic Tactical in, I believe, Franklin Twsp. to be cheapest on Ruger with a vast variety of holsters, but I'll hump the Parkway down to May's Landing for my Glocks to Lawman's Supply. Every model of Glock on premises and a great variety of new and used 1911's. Great prices, great gunsmithing, not so good on holster selection. Not really impressed with their ammo variety, either.
