My brother is a security guard and had one. They are junk. The trigger safety is downright scary. He traded it for a nice 1911 Colt .45. One of the newer, lighter versions. I loved to shoot the service .45 when I was an Army MP but it was a bugger to keep my pants pulled up after they banned the Sam Brownee belts with shoulder strap.

While I can't comment on your particular experience, I too have noticed the upward trend in handgun prices. I think this is the natural forces of supply and demand at work, with extra demand being spurred by fears of more gun control from Washington.

$459 Glocks

Welcome to GlockWorld.com

You have just entered one of the world's favorite
Glock Featured Video
Glock retailers. Whether you're looking for Glock handguns, Fobus holsters, Storm Lake Barrels, Ameriglo sights, Streamlight laser sights, LaserMax, or Glock factory parts, GlockWorld.com has you covered. GlockWorld strives to offer you the best of both worlds, extensive and insightful product information, as well as a large inventory of all things Glock related. So if you want to learn about the Glock advantage, sit back, relax and get ready to take off into the wide galaxy known as Glock.

Why Glock?

Gaston Glock's company, headquartered in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria, was founded in 1963. The company originally produced curtain rods, but in the early 1970's they diversified into manufacturing
plastic containers, field knives, plastic magazines,

ammunition belts, and practice hand grenades for the Austrian military. The first ever Glock pistol was introduced in 1980, way ahead of its time. The original Glock 17, was chambered in 9mm parabellum, with a capacity of 17 rounds. The Glock soon gained the reputation for never jamming, which caused the Austrian Army to be very impressed with the pistol. The army soon selected the Glock 17 to be their official side-arm. This remains true to this day.

Shop for Glock Pistols
Learn About Glock Pistols The success of the Glock 17 led to the introduction of more pistols in varying calibers. Today, Glock has become one of the leading firearms manufacturing companies in the world. As recently as 2006, data shows that the .40 caliber Glock 22 was the most preferred choice of police departments in the United States.

Reliability

The reputation of Glock pistols borders on legendary. In fact, in many cases, the reliability of the feeding mechanism, firing pin, slide and extractor approaches the reliability of a revolver. Glock pistols are famous for their functionality. Glock pistols have been put through torture tests that will boggle the mind. If you could watch a torture test you’d see guys bury the Glock pistol in mud, they pack the Glock pistol with sand, they let it soak in salty water for a week, and freeze it in ice. They’d shoot the Glock slide with a .22 caliber bullet, drop the Glock pistol from an airplane and dig it back out of the ground that it sunk into. Then, amazingly, they’ll pick it up, shake it off, load it, and it will fire. It is one of the most reliably operational guns on planet Earth, bar none.
Glock Safe Action System

One of the things that make Glock pistols some of the safest in existence is their unique Safe Action System. This is comprised of a trigger safety, a firing pin safety, and a drop safety.

The trigger safety prevents accidental discharge caused by lateral force on the trigger. The main portion of the trigger cannot be pulled without the trigger safety first being pulled. Some people refer to the trigger safety as a second trigger, or the “trigger’s trigger”. Glock Trigger Safety
The Glock Trigger Safety
Firing Pin Safety
The Glock Firing Pin Safety The firing pin safety is a little metal button on the bottom of the slide itself that blocks the firing pin channel, rendering the ability of the firing pin to strike the primer of a round impossible. The firing pin safety is pushed upward and out of the way only when the trigger is pulled. Releasing the trigger automatically re-engages the firing pin safety.

Last, but in no way least, the drop safety prevents accidental discharge of a Glock pistol by hard impact, such as dropping it on the floor.

The Glock Drop Safety
All three Glock pistol safeties must be disengaged in order for the gun to fire. All three safeties are disengaged when the shooter places their finger on the trigger. The safeties are re-engaged when the shooter takes their finger off the trigger. There is a reason why these three safeties operate from the trigger. The use of a defensive firearm exposes users to tremendous psychological strain. With Glock pistols, there is only one rule to remember about the safeties: finger off the trigger - safety on. Finger on the trigger – safety off. Glock Drop Safety

Toughness of Tenifer Finish
As you may already know, the frames of Glock pistols are made out of a high tech, nearly indestructible polymer, but the slides and barrels are metal. Metal is vulnerable to corrosion, so the Glock company treats its pistols with a unique, high tech surface refinement process of liquid carbon-itriding for the barrel and slide.Glock calls the resulting hardened coating “Tenifer”. Apart from optimum corrosion protection and anti-reflective finish, a degree of hardness of 64 RC (Rockwell Cone Scale) is achieved, which is close to that of a diamond. Due to this Tenifer coating, Glock pistols are almost invincible to

corrosion, rust, and scratches. Tenifer is applied in a 500 degree C (932 degree F) nitrate bath to give the coated parts a skin hardness of 69 RC. This is extremely hard. By comparison, the hardness of a metal file is only 62 to 65 RC, and the hardness of an industrial diamond is 70 RC.

Accessories:

Broad arrays of accessories exist for Glock pistols. With everything from custom barrels, custom grips, extended magazines, high-capacity magazines, custom sights, tactical lights and lasers, there are factory and aftermarket accessories to suit almost any need. All current generation Glock pistols come standard with an accessory rail ahead of the trigger housing, which is perfect for flashlights and lasers. The Glock factory makes its own line of lights and lasers for its pistols, and those accessories are made out of the same polymer material as the pistol frames.

The Glock is an excellent semi-automatic pistol. They are tough, reliable, accurate, safe, and will last a lifetime. Glock makes a pistol for almost every purpose. Make the right choice, choose Glock.

I HAVEN'T PRICED A GLOCK FOR A FEW YEARS BUT SOUND A BIT STEEP FOR USED UNLESS IT HAS NIGHT SIGHTS. LAST I SHOPPED FOR 1 IT WAS $500 FOR NEW AND ABOUT $100 MORE FORE NIGHT SIGHTS. USED WAS ABOUT $460 BUT GUN DEALERS CHARGE MORE FOR USED GUNS BECAUSE THAT'S HOW THEY MAKE MOST OF THEIR PROFIT. THEY CAN ONLY MARK NEW GUNS UP A SMALL AMOUNT IN ORDER TO KEEP THEIR PRICES COMPETITIVE BUT THEY MAKE A LARGER % OF PROFIT ON RESELLING USED GUNS.
