Due to current events, I"ll not disclose gun ownership information at this time.
I saw this thread got bumped back up so I thought I would chime in again. We had a new Gander Mountain store open up last month in my area. They have a huge selection of all kinds of guns. If you aren't familiar with them, they are like a Walmart of outdoor sporting goods except for the everyday low prices. They were selling Gen 3 Glocks for $575 to $625. I saw some Gen4s for $650. I looked at a G20SF and it was marked $575. I went by one of my favorite LGS about a day or two later and saw the same gun brand new for $459.00. The crazy thing about it is people were standing in line to get a spot at the counter at GM to get there hands on those overpriced guns. I just kept shaking my head and thinking that there are suckers born everyday and I am in the middle of a hord of them.
Don't retreat! Reload!!!
As for Glock prices, the Gen3s were around $450-$460 BNIB on sale, but they have since returned to about $499. Gen4s hover at $539-$560 it seems, but if you hunt online, you can get them for about $499 before shipping or FFL fees.

I think we also must make a distinction between what the going price is and what someone is willing to pay. If the going price is $500. And it’s the must have hard to find gun for someone, then a $600. Price tag to them may seem a bargain

Some Glock dealers offer the "Glock Blue Label Priceing" to law enforcement, firefighters/paramedics/emts, and active and retired military. I'm retired military, therefore, I got my Glock 23 Gen4 at a very good price compared to on-line vendors.
Join GSSF and you can get Blue Lable Discount prices too. You need to join up for 2+ years so you'll get the Purchase Card but it's only $60 and that gives you a lot of cool benefits like being able to take the Armour's course, free work by a Certified Armour at the GSSF Shoots and you can Shoot in their competitions as well. Plus you get the "Auto Pistol" magazine each year. Prices for the Standard guns(9x19mm, 40S&W and 357Sig in sub-compact, compact or full size) start at $425 of course you have to add tax and fees for background check. Still, I picked up a brand spankin' new G26 in 2010 with 3 mags, Gen 4 for just under $480 out the door from my local GSSF Supporting Dealer. Why anyone would pay $500 plus for a used Glock is beyond me, I'd much rather get a new one for less and support GSSF with my $30/year membership dues.
