    I live in TN...all of the local shops including Gander Mountain...are having a hard time getting Glocks in 9mm...is this a nation wide problem...one shop has not had a new 19 since December of last year...every now and then a 17 or 26 will pop up...does the shops in your area have this problem also...

    Supply and demand.

    GLOCK 9mm models are known as ultra-reliable and not too expensive, and 9mm is the cheapest centerfire pistol round, so lots of new shooters are getting into the game with a GLOCK. Since GLOCK probably hasn't been able to increase commercial production too much, due to LEO and other contracts, you will see shortages of the more popular models.

    especially the 19

    I live near Little Rock,AR. I frequently go out looking just to window shop and the 19 is theh ardest to come by.I can find 17 and the same guy had a 19,but it sold quickly(even though it came with glock's crappy adjustable sights.but, last time I checked his 17 was still there.

    80,000 Glocks behind?! Lordy sakes...didn't think I'd bought quite that many! Maybe we should have a one-per-month rule? Nope, that'd take me 6,666 years to have bought them all. Maybe Tupper Ware is cranking out too many bowls this year...using all the plastic. :neener:

    Yeah...Doc got cho Glock! :D

    Our local Gander mountain always has 3 or 4 in .40, but I've never seen one in 9mm since they opened last year.

    Same thing in my observations; you can find Glocks in .357 SIG, .40 S&W, 10mm., and .45 ACP but precious few in 9mm.

    They're all being fitted with after-market safties. ;)

    I see some pop up on local classifieds... www.ksl.com
    Beyond that, I would take your search to the internet. Also, if you can't find the Glock you want, there are some good alternatives like S&W's M&P line, or the Springfield XD line, Ruger's SR9 line, or even SIG's P250 line.

    I love my Glocks, but I wouldn't hesitate to carry any of those other options either.

    Probably because Vets like me are getting a discount from Glock. I love the G-19 and I love the fact that Glock gives military retirees discounts. Go Gaston.

    Dealer here in N Texas has plenty, all sizes, all colors. Haven't heard anything about a shortage around here.

    Several distributors are out, or were a few weeks ago. They are still in stock at some places.

    Much like the panic on ARs and AKs, 9mm Glocks and their 15-17+ rounds magazines saw a pretty sharp increase in sales after the election. They are well known, reliable, and relatively inexpensive compared to other "hi-capacity" 9mms, so I think a lot of people turned to them when the fear of 10+ magazine restrictions came back into the picture.

    I have had several emails and phone calls from people in the past few months who want to buy their first gun, and most of them want a Glock 19 or an AR-15.

    Sales are up

    Sales on firearms in general are up 600% since last November. Yes, Glock is behind and so is everyone else. We have a shop in Macon that has had NO firearms for sale 2 times since last November. And they generally have a stock of 300 to 400 firearms at any given time.
