You guys are making me want to buy my first Glock!
Sorry, just being sarcastic. I just find it comical that people care about the aesthetics of their firearms. Unless it's going into a display case, I don't care one bit about color. When buying my PMAGs for my LMT the salesman thought I was crazy for buying black, OD and FDE. Told him I didn't name my rifle Barbie, so I could give a S#%< less if her clothes color coordinated.
If my weapons are all named Frankenstein but are Old Faithful reliable, my give a darn meter is pegged on empty as far as looks.
I don't doubt for a minute a FDE would cost your dealer a little more if they are in fact an exclusively through Lipsey's.
GLOCK 19 Gen 4 Flat Dark Earth

I think the FDE looks pretty sweet. They seem to carry a pretty high premium though. Not sure how much extra I'd pay for it but all things close to equal (within $50 or so), I'd pick FDE.
I got great news yesterday my dealer buddy has one Flat Dark Earth Glock and yes it is exactly what I was looking for. Glock 19 Gen4 Flat Dark Earth; I could not have been more lucky. I am going to get it today he saved it for me; price is $500 plus tax and and I know this is great deal. His normal price would have been $550 but I gave him a golf club awhile back and so this is return favor. I hope to post some pictures and will give range report when I get some rounds thru it!
