    Congratulations on going to the dark side & seeing the light! I have a feeling that $575 might be the going price all over, if not right at this time but soon. I have a price list from December that has a G23 at $549. If that was the going price then I can imagine that it'll be higher now & maybe A $26 increase isn't too bad. At least you have it in hand. I paid $455 for an M&P 40C at a LEO/Security/Military price with 3 mags & Trijicon night sights in mid-December but it still hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully I'll have it in a couple of weeks. The price is locked in regardless what any new price may be. I suspect they'll eliminate the third mag & the night sights in the future. I couldn't find any deals on Glocks. I sure wanted to replace the G23 that I gave my son.

    Got my first one a few months ago and haven't looked back, love it! Congrats!

    Welcome to the club! That's not a bad price. You'll love every penny spent.

    Congratulations and Well Done. You bought what I consider to be the best concealed carry fighting handgun made for $20.00 less that what they sold for here before Newtown. It will happily eat any ammo from a box labeled 9mmP or 9mm Luger, or 9x19 and come back for more. It's pleasant to shoot, dirt simple to strip and clean, very easy to detail strip or modify to suit yourself, and all sorts of aftermarket parts are available.

    That said, mine are all box stock other than having night sights installed. I've tried other parts and keep coming back to box stock. The gun is really well designed and built.

    Be warned though: I know very few people that own just one Glock. They are addictive. I currently have 4 (all gen 3), purchased in this order, G19., G26, G30, G17. And I want a G34 and a G21. Sigh ...

    There was a G36 between the 26 and 30 that was traded in on the 30.

    You actually came to the LIGHT side. You were the product of years of indoctrination by the ANTIs...anti-Glock that is.

    Welcome...and have a cookie. You will enjoy the best handgun on the market.

    That seems on par with prices here for a gen 4... Except for my local pawnshop that seems to think $690 is fair for all of their glocks gen 3 and 4... They did have the largest selection of glocks I've seen in months, I don't think that is a coincidence
