I attended an Armorer's Course last week. The instructor said at that time the factory was behind approx 600,000 guns. This was BEFORE they received orders in from the distributors at the SHOT Show. Including those, he estimated the total to shoot up to at least 800,000 guns. He stated this was close to their entire production in 2012, which was the most guns they have ever produced in one year!

So, yeah, unless you find what you want on the shelf, I would say a year is not at all out of the question.

So...basically I should be thanking God that I was able to buy my Gen 4 G19 off the shelf at my local gun shop with the greatest of ease two weeks ago? General Glocking

Not to mention three of the PW Korea made 33 round mags that they had a full box of @ $29 per mag, lol. My only regret there was not being able to get more.

Well you did good getting the G19 but can't say the same for the PW Korea mags.

A glock isn't a 1911, they are designed to be mass produced. I wouldn't worry about it.

Horror! My LGS has ONE Glock left in the show case, a 25yr anniversary G17 at $799 , oh, and a used custom abomination of a G27 for $519.

I wouldn't have to have 1 ordered. They have plenty on the shelves around here.

There are still plenty of used Glocks out there. The local gunshops around here are out of Glocks, but the VA guntrader site and other on-line auctions have them available.

It's not the end of the world, but I can see it from here!

To put it into perspective I have about 4 law enforcement suppliers I deal with and all of those who sell any type of firearm are also the distributor point for LGS in a multi state territory. I called our distributor for the state we are in for Glocks to get some extra magazines and few more Glock 27s ordered and the sales manager told me they sold 16,516 pistols, 4200 rifles and almost half a million rounds of ammunition in about 13 days and were currently out awaiting back orders with a status of 30-60 days…

I'm wondering about that, also. I ordered a G32 Gen4 from my lgs in the end of Dec and had it within 2 weeks. The day I picked it up they had a NIB G26 Gen3 in the case that they had just received. I bought that one, also.

I've been at several gunshops around Charlotte and a 19 is impossible to find.I had a guy behind the counter tell me he can't get any Glocks period.Things seemed a little better when I went to shops farther from the city.I went to a shop in Florence Sc and he had a G21 Gen4,G21 SF and a G21 Gen 3.He priced the G4 at $599 and $549 on the others.I went ahead and bought all three since I was looking for a G21 anyways.I was shocked to see that Gen 4 on the shelf.Thats another one that seems about impossible to find on a shelf.

Two days ago, the LGS nearest me had one NIB Glock 19 on the shelf at $659.

It was gone in two hours.

I had my "dealer" set aside a g30 for me over the weekend and went in on Monday to pay and fill out the paperwork. He told me that they just got in a custom glock order for another customer with a note attached saying glock was backed up 600k guns and 1mil+ on mags. I'm thinking what you see is what you get for the next 12 months or so. I wasn't NEEDING a glock, but figured I'd get one while I still could.

I'm not a huge fan of 9mm but I came across a G19 gen 4 and grabbed it because they are scarce right now.The dealer even knocked off $10 so I paid $530 plus tax.The gun I really want is the G21 FDE.It usually gets a good laugh when I ask somebody if they could find one.I just don't want to pay $900 for it.

My friend at work today left a deposit for G19 G3 coming in this Friday. The LGS had 8 or 9 G19s on their way, Gen 3 and 4s. They all were sold except the one he got. I just bought a Gen 4 19 there last week for 579. So they are shipping. Ron

Methinks in a few months things will be fine. Inventory for most items will be in the pipeline by spring. People will be more at ease when they realize gun owner control legislation will probably get bogged down in the legislatures, even if any happen to make it out of their respective committees.
