Well I finally bit the bullet, so to speak, and will be picking up a brand new GLOCK 44 on Wednesday at my club. Got to shoot one the club had ( I wasn't aware they had one..) and loved the little thing.
I am aware of it's shortcomings being a tad finicky regarding choice of ammo but as our main supply, both at the club and locally, is CCI MiniMags it should be fine. I also know about the care needed when loading mags. That said you'd be hard pressed to find any .22LR ammo lighter than 40 grains over here.

Now I know just what you guys pay for your firearms in the US so, hoping you're all sitting down, this Glock 44 is going to set me back the equivalent of...

$953.00

Based on that I'd emigrate in a heartbeat if I wasn't so damn old..!! 馃槶

Bass Pro Shops have them listed at $399.99.

Perhaps they have to charter an entire shipping container ship to being it over??
Simple fact is they convert Dollars to Pounds Sterling then add 20% VAT (Value Added Tax) and a 'little on the side' for the distributor.

That 'little on the side' can get a guy in a bit of trouble. ;)

Congrats! Let us know how it does at the range.

You're never too old to emigrate. I'll be leaving ILLinois for Georgia in the Fall. Congratulations of the new Glock!

'Added Value' my _ _ _.

Nothing was added to the pistol except the price. VAT = just another tax. Pretty soon they'll figure out how many breaths the average person takes during the course of their lifetime and hit us each with an 'Atmospheric Use' tax.

Illinois ruled the FOID unconstitutional. Georgia never had them, as far as I know.
Yes. I was referring to his current state. Illinois. I frequent Georgia almost weekly by air and a couple times a year by ground. I keep up with their laws as much as possible.....
