    So I'm in the market for a Glock and am doing some research online. I came across glockworld.com and discovered they sell Glocks MUCH cheaper than Bass Pro or Gander Mountain or any other respectable store...like $100 or so cheaper! So it got me wondering, are they on the up and up? Are these new pistols they sell? I don't know a ton about hand guns, only how to fire and safely handle them (I've been a hunter all my life).

    I have never bought a gun from them, but have got accessories form them. My complaints are that they take three or four days to ship because most items are kept at an off-site warehouse, and their ammo is waaaaay over priced.

    And regarding their gun prices, I looked at buying a G27 from them, but once you pay shipping and the FFL fee to your local shop where it is shipped to, you don't save enough to make it worth it. The shop I frequent was selling the G27 for $65 more than glockworld.

    Edit: My post might have come off negative. I still order stuff from them like trigger connectors, magazines, recoil springs, etc. I was just trying to point out some of the negatives (IMO) of doing business with them.

    By the time you get it shipped to your FFL of choice and pay tax and shipping price will be real close to just buying local..

    You may want to speak with your local FFL as it is possible they are also a gun dealer. My FFL was a dealer for many gun stores so he could get just about any gun for a cheap price. And he runs his shop out of his garage.

    My G19 ended up being ~$500 with taxes/shipping/FFL (FFL waived since I bought through him).

    Yea and when buying guns from gander, cabelas , or bass pro you should just opt for a local dealer or a known small dealer because typically all gun manufacturers not specifically make lower quality guns from those manufacturers but they produce so many for those big name companies sometimes the craftsmanship and quality can differ so for the price they want you are a lot better dealing with your local shop or another dealer in your area that specifies in guns that doesn't get MASS amounts of them at one time. Not saying to not buy guns from those types of stores just that you're better off. My uncle is a gunsmith and i've been around guns my whole life so just sharing my knowledge.
