I live about 35 miles from Winston-Salem, NC. Looking to add another Glock to my armament and wondering if anyone knows any dealers in the area that participate in the GSSF purchase program. I am willing to drive an hour or two if necessary. Thanks.

Young Guns (http://www.younggunsinc.com/) in Apex, NC is participating. They have a sign in the Glock case with the appropriate pricing information. I haven't bought a gun from them.

Your best bet is to call GSSF and ask the amazing Ms. Donna & Co. to look up NC dealers. I hear the list is very active, which is why it is not published.

Hyatts Gun shop. I verified today.

SERIOUSLY? Are you planning on buying one through them? I'd really like to hear the outcome of that.

Hyatts has the most outrageous prices on Glocks I've seen anywhere. They don't have a new Glock on their shelf for under $600 I think. Friggin' ridiculous. In fact, it's not just Glocks, but everything they sell is over-priced.

Everybody says "you have to haggle with them".... not me. I don't haggle. I expect you to put the price on there you think it's worth. If it's more than I think it's worth, I go someplace else. You wanna "screw" the people who don't know what the gun is really worth, I don't care if you are willing to come down in price for me, you're not getting my business.

I walk through there to window shop sometimes if I need a hit of "new gun smell"... but that's about it.

I'm really anxious to hear if you're planning on buying a gun w/ the GSSF deal through them, and how it works out. Post back (or PM me with) your experience?

I'd like to know more about this as well. Honoring GSSF pricing is the last thing I'd expect from these guys.

As understand it:

Honoring GSSF pricing and "free guns” from Glock is the voluntary "obligation" of any Glock stocking dealer. The Dealer gets reimbursed by the distributor.

The issue is the Transfer Fee – Some Glock Stocking Dealers choose not to participate in the program because they make NOTHING on the transaction, including the transfer fee.

I bought a Glock 20SF from Hyatts in 2010 via the GSSF purchase program. They were completely compliant with GSSF pricing. I paid NC sales tax, of course, and an annoying paperwork fee ( $12 , if I recall correctly ) for completing the obligatory forms.

I was in Hyatt's yesterday and a testament to their pricing practice was their price of a Glock sport combat holster. These are typically available for 12-15 usd in most of the known universe. Price at Hyatt's was $29.99. At least they were consistent since the price of the matching magazine holder was also $29.99.

In late 2010 I did in fact purchase a Glock 17 DIRECTLY from Hyatts, not through GSSF, but I did this through their website. They apparently have 2 pricing levels, online vs walk-in. The online price I paid was reasonable. The walk-in prices are generally excessive. Buyer beware.

I had forgotten about this thread.

I posted above that I would be shocked to find out that HYatts honored GSSF prices... well, I went in a month later, and... guess what? I was shocked.

Yep, they honored the price. However, they still managed to "do their thing". On the walls is posted a sign that says they add $15 to the sale of every gun to pay for the paperwork required of them due to the Brady Bill. Yep, had to pay an extra $15 even on my GSSF purchase. Still figured it was worth it, I didn't spend gas driving anywhere else (I worked 5 miles from there at the time) and it WAS quick and easy.

They didn't have gun in stock.... I ordered it and it was in less than a week later. Smooth and easy. My sales guy was very easy to work with, so that was a nice thing.

not sure if its true or not, but i'v been told that Lawmans in charlotte also honores gssf pricing. i know they do for LE, but not sure if they do to cilvilian gssf members. their not far from Hyats, but i would drive 100 miles, and pay full retail just to not deal with those people

I don't think Lawman's does anymore... unless they've started up again. I checked with them early in the year and they had stopped for some reason.

The last two GSSF purchases I made, I just went through Ed's Public Safety. They've been great to deal with.

This thread is 2 YEARS OLD so virtually nothing may apply.

I don't think NC is one of Ed's states anymore - though I've got to admit I keep forgetting.

Yes, it is but the last post was much more recent ;-) My intention was to clarify the information provided there.

Yes, NC is one of Ed's states - they were actually recommended to me by Donna @ GSSF when Lawman's stopped participating...

I think L.R.T. was replying to a 14 month old (already non-relevant) post and had to get in the Way-Back machine to even find the thread.

But true, if Ed's is on the NC list, they are certainly the best and easiest deal going - if the FFL on the receiving end is halfway fair in price. Ed's also generally has the best stock.

(I can never quite remember all of Ed's states - only that FL isn't one any more for new Glocks.) :crying:
