Called around, somehow...miraculously, there was a BNIB Glock 43X at a local shop, just came in today, they only wanted $499 for it...put a deposit down over the phone right then, a few hours later I stopped in, paid the balance and brought it home.

Don't know why I did it...I just did it...I don't even need it, I just wanted it.

Hello...my name is Doc Holliday....and I'm an addict. I need serious therapy.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

Congratulations on the new Glock pistola! It's a looker!
I think all my firearms purchases have been made because I wanted them, not because I needed them. ;)

That is the good part about being an adult , sometimes you get to buy stuff just because you want it ! Did they give you a good deal on some ammo to try it out with ?

They were completely out of 9mm ammo, but that's okay, I have some at home and I know this 43X will work just fine.

I'd be sorely tempted also and I'm not even a Glock fan, just an addict. I am getting the itch something fierce also. I may liquidate a couple to make myself feel better about it. Congratulations on the new pistol!

Well, for one thing, you overexpose your pictures. But other than needing to stop down about 2EV, you seem perfectly normal.
I never claimed to be another Ansel Adams. :p

I put it closer to a window for better lighting, but that's about as artistic as I get.
'Step down to 2EV'?? May as well be speaking Klingon to me.
Panasonic DMC-ZS7. Just like a gun, point and shoot, that's how I roll.

The best thing about today was the price...only $499...really just about $10-20 above pre-pandemic pricing...and the availability...are we starting to see things return to 'normal'?

What is this CZ75 of which you speak? I've not seen any baby pics. I'd pick that over a Glock.

If you are a veteran, you can get "Blue Label" pricing. IIRC, that's about 425 for a new 17. You can also join GSSF for those prices. Send me a PM and I will give you info.
if you can catch them in stock at a Glock Blue Label Dealer it sounds like a good deal.
