Prize pistol deliveries
 
Just curious on the current lead-time on prize pistols.

I am not complaining, just asking for other members to let me know if they just got their guns and how long they waited.

Thanks:wavey:

Sent in mid august for a G30SF and a Gen 3 G34. 30 came in mid october. Still waiting on the 34. Sent one in last week for a 19. Will be interesting to see which one comes first.

GSSF will tell you the wait is 5 months, and don't call asking about it before then. That's about how long it's been for my Gen4 G20 so I'll probably call this week.

I'm waiting a batch of 34 to run as well.

Isn't there a difference between shooting and collecting:rofl:

Keep us posted, I'm still waiting for a Gen 4 21. They received my paperwork August 13th and it posted to my CC on August 20th. We're at 21 weeks now, I won't bother them though, it gets here when it gets here. Although, I am eager to shoot the 45 in heavy metal, I hate leaving 10mm brass on the ground.

I sent checks this time instead of using Credit Card, they have not cashed my check it has been about 8 weeks - any background or opinion on this situation?

It would be my opinion that you may have an additional 3 month wait. Perhaps they charge CC customers early-on because the sale/order can be processed immediately and a CC credit easily given if necessary. That wouldn't be the case with personal checks.

Calling Donna right now to check on my Gen4 G20 order of 5 months ago.

SARDG 01-10-2013 10:51

Just got off the phone with GSSF. Donna's at lunch I suppose, but Mark Ramsey answered and we had a nice chat. However, he told me to send an e-mail (gssf@glock.us) and I'd have an answer by tomorrow. (But don't e-mail for at least 12 weeks after cert submission.)

My G20 order was received by GSSF on 7/24/12. I'm not in that much of a hurry as I'll just have to buy yet another caliber conversion for my 650 when it arrives.

What do you want a G20 for? 10mm done right is loud and kicks. 10mm downloaded may as well be a G22. Are you going to shoot GSSF with it?

G2332 01-10-2013 16:58

I sent my cert for a Gen3 G34 in late September. CC was charged a few business days after they received it and my FFL received the G34 just about 2 weeks after that, so less than 3 weeks wait. I think I lucked out and they happened to have one in-stock at the time. Even my FFL commented that it was the fastest turnaround he'd ever witnessed.

I used my G20C for deer a few years ago with good success.

Last year I was able to find a non-ported barrel for it and used it in GSSF heavy metal. Downloaded, with a 150 gr. bullet it felt great (still loud). Downside is leaving 10mm brass on the ground, so if the 21 comes soon, I'll be able to come up with a load for it as well and see which does better for me. Maybe I'll be able to beat Bryan and Dennis:rofl: (I don't think Butch shoots Heavy Metal).

It will be one of two Glocks out of a dozen I own that won't be set up for competition. I've got this crazy idea that I'm going to hunt wild hogs. I've only ever hunted larger game (deer) with a bow and never a firearm, but wild hogs apparently have no closed season and no limit in FL - they're pests.

I'm also moving closer to the Everglades where Burmese pythons are invasive nonnative pests. Two days ago, Florida announced the 2013 Python Challenge - $1500 for the most pythons harvested and $1000 for the biggest harvested throughout the year.

I already have Glock's 6" hunting barrel to drop into the 20.

Possible correction: The Challenge may only be one month long. Still researching.

I've heard of hunting small to medium game with handguns such as the G20...but it seems like a bit of a canon for snake harvesting. Wouldn't your G34 race gun work just fine?...assuming you were the one shooting it, of course.

Dunno... if I shoot it... of course! :)

Actually, I was sitting bored in my gun club's board meeting earlier tonight and there was a gun magazine on the table. I thumbed through it and there was an article by Mas about carrying extra ammo for various situations - not just SD. In one instance in the article he related (as I remember) taking 6 shots (with one miss) to dispatch a large snake.

These nonnative pythons can reach 17' long and have thick bodies. They aparently move slowly so I suppose one well-placed head shot would do it - or 6 or 8 shots with misses - kinda like GSSF plates. :rofl:

SARDG 01-11-2013 08:47

Received an e-mail answer from GSSF regarding my Gen4 G20 order. The e-mail...

"The G20 Gen 4 has not shipped yet.

GLOCK, Inc is still quoting us 150-180 on all shipments, so it should be going out soon.

So... if your ordered gun hasn't been received in 5 months... give it 6 months. :yawn:

BTW, found out today that Donna retired last month. And she didn't even call and let me know! :shocked: :faint:

I'm familiar with pythons and other snakes. AFAIK, they're mostly thin skin and lots of muscle...so I suspect if you were to shoot one and hit nothing vital, it could take a whole bunch of shots and not die. If they allow it, I'd think a 10/22 with a scope would be sufficient for dispatching pythons. If not, next choice would be an AR with scope or red dot...but .223 also seems overkill. I guess it depends on the distances involved. Would you be walking right up on them, or seeing them from a bit of a distance and taking them out from yards away?
