Default Best place to buy a Glock (tupperware)

Noob to LA here.. Officially a CA resident and looking to buy my first 9mm... Looking to spend under 500.. Would prefer a G17/G19. Looking to shoot competivley and possibly look into armed guard carry. Any LGS that stock a good used selection on glocks? You California guys really get F*^#ed with these ridiculous prices!

If you want true tupperware - which refers to the box you'll need a Gen 1 or 2. Glocks aren't real good competion guns. Don't forget it'll take 2 trips to complete your purchase so factor in travel time to the deal. Paying a little more is ok if it saves a long trip.

Everything else you said was a fact. Glock 34's are a great budget choice for production USPSA/IPSC - cheaper and easier to get and kit out than a CZ SP-01 or Shadow. CZ is taking over USPSA, but Glock is still the most popular choice for IDPA competition.

Glock Store in SD sell new Glocks for $550 and they are not known for the lowest pricing. Best bet is wait for Turners to put them on sale. Shorter drive but be prepared for a long wait time. CA is the land of everything costs more. People just get used to it or move. If CA deducted illegal immigration, there would be net legal out-migration.

I don't know where you are but, if you get your guard card, go to Proforce in Brea. They have G19/17 gen 3's for $399.99.

Not disagreeing here. But it seems like the majority of our members have had less than happy experiences at Turners. The OP might want to keep the quality of the retail experience in mind. I, and others here, have had good experiences at Riflegear and, the last time I checked, their prices were competitive on Glocks.

Rifle gear is excellent. When SSE was available drove there every one in 30 Days. They are also good with special orders. Iíve had my share of Iíve been Turnered experiences. (Selling gun they donít have and canít get after running ads for them).

Join GSSF and use a discount coupon to pick up your next few glocks. A two year membership gets you the discount coupon.

He was wanting 17 or 19. I also should have said out of the box. Anythng can be made competitive if you throw enough money at it.

Had never seen Gen3 in tupperware. Aĺl mine 17, 26, 30 have been in the clamshells. Are yours early ones? I prefer them I cut off a bolt and cross drill it for a padlock. You can use a long bolt and lock several at once.

Ugh

Buy a Glock and start to establish a relationship with a local range that sells guns.

If you are serious about
Looking to shoot competivley

Then you will need a place to shoot.


Some ranges, once they know you and know you are trained, will let you shoot from the holster and concealed.

Spend the extra $50 or $75 and buy from a place to start the relationship.

What are range fees?
How many targets to you get for free?
How much is Ammo?


If you are going to be active in shooting, start a relationship with a range. It will pay off in the long run.


If you are going to be a security guard... that is something else.
