I bought one online this morning, i was just at GLOCKTALK and someone posed the same question.

-CENSORED--CENSORED--CENSORED-?

I think it has something to do with Glock enforcing minimum advertised pricing rules.

Glock wants gunshops to stop carrying their guns.

Glock wants gunshops to stop carrying their guns.It's not uncommon for manufacturers to enforce minimum pricing rules. Generally they will allow a dealer to sell for any price they wish but restrict the prices they can ADVERTISE. It's done to protect their smaller dealers and is especially important in this day and age where a small, local gun shop must compete against online giants.

If anything, this move indicates that Glock wants gunshops to KEEP carrying their guns.

IIRC, last month their Sig pages consisted of only used guns, like 4 or 5 items. But now it looks like the new stock is listed...2 pages worth. Maybe a shift in what they want/need to sell?

Not a very productive answer AJ, but if that's the case, why are they selling Hi-Points and Kel-Tecs? :barf:

As of today, Bud's Gun Shop has 152 listings for Glock on their website. Maybe a glitch on their page when updating it or something?
