Glock Collectors Club. Sign up NOW

I would like to start a Glock collectors club and call it Collectors Corner. Maybe it shouldnt be a club, but rather a Forum?
I need 50 people to start it. Thanks!---allglock;a

Not much of a collector myself.

What type of thing would we talk about?

Well, allglock, you know me, and you know how I am about collecting Glocks. At first I wondered if there's REALLY a need for a specific forum for it, but then I thought of the stuff bolded below, and I agree, we need a collectors forum.


I guess we could discuss the following topics:
1. Commemorative Glocks,
2. Other specially marked Glocks (such as the numerous police/govt. agency ones),
3. Rare variations (like the so-called "transition models"),
4. Early Glocks
5. Glock Memorabilia
6. Serial number cut-offs when transitions happened.


Any other ideas?

It sounds to me like another painfully slow forum.

We could also include, all types of collectible firearms and firearm related parephenalia. I just cant believe there is not more interest in Glock history and collectability!;1

So PP do we take that as a NO? You must be a Youngster, as I have been shooting and collecting glocks since the late 80s. Which has just been a passion of mine!

Youngster?

The first Glocks were made only about 20 years ago.

Don't take this as a flame; I just don't see the collectable value of Glocks.

Yes, some people go after the 17L and such, but Glocks have not changed that much.

I sell collectables, and most of the time they are something that is unusual, like a crank bait lure with hooks coming out the sides, instead of underneath. If Glock stopped making guns, or made a major change in them, there would be a more wide spread collecting interest.

You would probably get further starting a forum for pre-ban magazines.


That said, I'm in if the forum is for collectable weapons in general, not JUST Glocks.

I like things like War relics, military firearms, and old west stuff.

Well you got my vote.
As someone who regularly sells discontinued Glock items like patches, manuals, and all sorts of armorers only items, if you saw the prices some ppl pay on eBay, I guess you would have to agree that there is a THRIVING market for Glock collectibles and info.
Wonder how many people said "another bloody mold for my Colt 1860...what the h*ll am I gonna do with this one!"?


Maybe my kids will benefit in years to come, but I'll remain a dedicated collector thanks.

My thumbs up.

I'm in, too!

As a collector of ANYTHING with the Glock logo on it, I'm in! (Working at a Glock Stocking Dealer and LE Distributor gunshop sure helps in feeding the addiction!!). I'm lucky - Donna is VERY understanding about all the stuff I collect. Tony.
