    There was a thread on this a couple weeks ago i know. Availability local is nonexistent which is funny as 2 weeks ago i saw them. I did notice these could be ordered from the glockstore.com, but it doesn't comment on availability. Does anyone know of any online shops that have them that would ship to FFL? Gen 3 or 4 doesn't matter.

    Thanks

    Found one. If anyone is interested, Buckeye Armory has them in stock and does online ordering. Actually did it by phone. Price is $540 which is more than they were, but i got what i wanted. This is gen 3.

    You will continue to see them, then not see them, for months to come. Glock is ridiculously back ordered, and manufacturers often batch items. When a batch ships, they'll be all over for a couple weeks. Then, they'll dry up. It will continue to be that way until Glock gets ahead of the orders, and has a backstock on hand so that they can continually ship them out.

    I see a lot more new & used .40 S&W Glock 22 & 23 models for sale at decent prices, and I'm finding .40 S&W range ammo easier than anything else right now

    Not for nothing but I did run across gen 3 & 4 19's and 26's locally two weeks ago. Of course they are gone now. Prices were pre-scare.

    I agree with Rbid. They will come and go for a while but supply will catch up to demand. That said, not crazy about inter web shopping for firearms. Rather support a local LGS.

    Same here but local shop suggested online as they werent sure when they'd see a Glock. Im giving them a ffl fee. Finding ammo will be an entirely different search.

    I was at the Smyrna location week before last; Glock rep I talked to stated they are doing all they can to meet demand. Their problem is the same as others who manufacture with the "just in time" stocking philosophy (or partially so): they just aren't geared to the current level of demand.

    fwiw, I see a lot more .40 ammo online than 9mm. So I'm trying to decide which gun to buy. I'm leaning toward the .40 because of ammo but would like to get the 9mm S&W SDVE. Maybe the surge in buying will slow down and it won't be an issue? Can I reload the ammo myself?

    I'm seeing used Glock 19's locally but every one is asking $600 or more. I'd pay $600 if it came with some ammo / holster but just for a gun a (2) magazines, no thanks.

    I saw a Glock 19 w/ OD frame on gunbroker sell for more than $800 just the other day. :what:

    Yes, you can reload yourself. All you need is a hammer. Kidding, DO NOT USE A HAMMER. I'm relatively new to reloading and it can seem over whelming at first but it ain't that hard. There is some cost for the initial investment in a press, dyes, scale, etc but it will eventually pay itself off, depending on how much you shoot.

    I would highly suggest not choosing the caliber based on current availability as this is temporary. There is no way ammo is getting banned or restricted any time soon, by the feds anyways. 9mm is cheaper, has less recoil and generally higher capacity. .40 has better wound characteristics. That's about all u need to know.

    Of course you can. I've been loading and casting since about 1970, and since 1993 I've loaded and shot thousands of 40 S&W rounds. Just be sure you buy quality equipment, at least one manual (I like Lyman's), follow all safety rules and understand fully how your equipment works.

    The current problem with component availability (and equipment to a somewhat lesser degree) is that it's all vary scare too. Those of use who maintain our component stocks on a regular basis are not in a bind; casual loaders are all crying.

    But don't expect to "save" any money reloading unless you are really into volume shooting or really skimp and buy the cheapest stuff you can just get by with. Take your projected total cost (press, dies, shell holder, scales, powder measure, powder, primers (good luck with those two) and etc. and divide that number by how many rounds you expect to load initially. That will give you your cost per round at that point. My son-in-law did that and got $6.00 per round for .270 WSM. He did manage to cut that to about $3.00 per round (with me offering some of my old stuff) but eventually decided not to do it. He was consider a Lee loading kit. As is the usual case ... YMMV.
