The prices have reverted back to normal, however I did call in and ask if the prices could be honored and they told me yes. woot So if you are still looking to take advantage of this deal, you can call in to get it, or use these coupon codes:
for Gen3 pistols the code is glockgen3 and for Gen4 pistols the code is glockgen4.
I dont know how long they are good for so call first.

Good price if not in Texas.

AIM surplus had a deal for gen4 for $499 and they included an additional 4th magazine. This was about a month ago

Everyone thinks they're going to be some hero. When SHTF not one person fought back and neither would you. There were members of the armed forces in the audience. Who you kidding?
it's either laughable or sad that someone thinks a CCW could take down a guy wearing body armor, gas mask, and shooting nato rounds from an ar-15. these "hero fantasies" some people have are almost as scary to me as what the colorado shooter did.

I believe the only people that could speculate on if a CC would have changed anything inside the theater are the people that were actually there.

Yea it is low, sounds like a LEO discount.

It wouldn't be the first time that's happened. Good for the buyer but the dealer is risking getting blasted by Glock for diverting pistols to the commercial market if that's the case.
$499 is the common price around here for gen3 or 4. $398 is the LEO/MILdiscount, and $429 is the GSSF discount. Sale prices are generally around $479ish...

I just bought a Gen4 FDE Glock 19 for $499.... And I never pay that much for a Glock, I just wanted the color.

Alot of you think that this is a super hot deal, and it may well be for the area you live in, so take that into account. Not everyone pays the same.

True, it's always easy to speculate after the fact. But, it's another thing to be in a dark theater full of 300 screaming people, with an action movie playing loudly, and a gunman with massive firepower shooting at everyone... It's quite different than being in a convenient store with a clerk, a gunman and you.

I fully support concealed carry, and I am a shooter/carrier.ex-military, but, I would have quickly realized that I would have made things worse, and possibly hurt innocent people. My goal would have been to get people out safely.

Big Glock fan here and its a great deal. Also as a CCW holder myself, Im pleased to see intelligent & well thoughtout conversation from most of those discussing this thread. A wannabe hero with a handgun & CCW wouldnt have made the situation any better. The woulda-coulda-shoulda talk from the gun community has been a bit ridiculous. You have a surprise gunman, armed with a AR15, shotgun and 2 handguns.. in body armor.. throwing smoke/gas grenades.. in a dark theater. And these wannabe's really believe their concealed carry pocket gun (which is a low round count .380 or 9mm in most cases) would have changed the outcome.

Look at the situation from the victims standpoint. Now with TWO people shooting in a dark, smoked, movie theater you've only confused people on who is bad guy and how to escape from that massacre. Imagine more than one CCW holder.. now you have 3 or more people shooting at each other in a dark, crowded, gassed theater. How would any of you know who is the bad guy??? Now consider how much higher your chances of shooting innocent people vs the bad guy in that chaos!!

Outside of Superman himself, the best chance at survival was getting OUT of that theatre as soon as possible. Being a LEO, serving in the military, obtaining a CCW and owning a handgun.. does not make you Rambo.. and does not give you movie hero aiming skills. Know the difference. And learn how to make the best decisions to increase EVERYONE's ability to survival.

Many folks feel the need to post, "that more guns in the audience only increases civilian casualties"

I think we can all agree, that we are not all in agreement!

Hopefully we can get back to the actual deal itself, and continue that arguement.

The two instructors at the gun range I go to are also LEO and they were the one's that gave me that answer and they stated anyone thinking they could have done anything different are fooling themselves. How'd dozens of LAPD with pistols do against two body armored assailants robbing a bank in broad daylight? Not very good and you think you can do better in a smoke filled, extremely dark room, and with people trying to run around you to get out.

My remark was regarding the blatant refusal to act under any circumstance. Any reading further into it is making an ass-umption.

...and wearing body armor does not make you superman where bullets just bounce harmlessly off your chest.

Which is the point the ignorant seem to keep not understanding.

NOTE: I'm not saying that any random dude with a 38 would've stopped this fella easily if he'd been carrying.

But I am saying if you hit a guy in most body armor in the chest with a couple decent rounds from calibers some folks DO carry (+p+ 9, some .40 loads, .357 mag, about any .45, etc) he will likely be laying out on the ground groaning with some broken ribs.

Body armor means you don't DIE when you get shot, it doesn't mean it doesn't hurt like hell and potentially knock you to the ground.

Further- do we have any reliable info on the TYPE of "body armor"? Because this site suggests it was a tactical vest, not actual armor-
http://minx.cc/?post=331266

and that's not gonna stop too many bullets.... haven't seen any detailed on info on what exactly he was wearing below the torso either to protect his legs, etc just a lot of speculation.

And as to aiming, quite a lot of folks use laser targeting like crimson trace and others on their carry guns... which make head shots a whole lot easier than trying to aim via iron sights



To to the chaos and crowded theater parts, I agree nobody who wasn't there can know if anyone could have had a clean shot.

Nobody knows just HOW smoky it was if you weren't there... or if the smoke covered the shooter in all directions....

I do know this though- in ever case I've ever been able to find, if a civilian CCW was present during a crime either one of two things happened:

1) He didn't draw, in which case his carrying was irrelevant.

2) He did, and stopped the bad guys/saved lives.

I can't find a single case where he made things worse or ended up shooting a bunch of innocent bystanders. Not a single one. (if you know of any, lemme know- I'm sure statistically it probably happened, but I can't find any report of it- which seems weird given how anti-gun folks would be shouting about such incidents).... I can find tons where #2 above happened though.


So while we can likely never KNOW if someone carrying would've made a difference, every bit of real life evidence I can find suggests a CCW at a crime virtually never, ever, makes things worse... and often makes them better.

We can all read what you wrote and my replies and my posts and yours were specifically about the Aurora shooting. I also included I'm in favor of CCW but that it wouldn't have made a difference in THAT circumstance. You stated that a CCW could have stopped him and in THAT circumstance you are overestimating many people's ability. It would have been a better chance of the shooter being rushed while reloading and tackled by one or more individuals than a shooter from 15 rows up.

And I'm not your pal.

i love this! i have no doubt that you would have tried to save the day but for all your monday morning quarterbacking and fantasizing about getting a headshot on a moving/shooting target across a movie theater with your laser sight and ccw, or hitting him in the legs, or knocking him to the ground with hit's to his armor ( and yes, it was armor the police chief confirmed "heavy body armor") you have better odds of winning multiple lotteries than being in a similar situation.

however, when you continue to spout off die hard like fantasies of saving the day as reality you give the rest of the thoughtful and safe ccw'ers a bad name. so please stop...just please...stop.

True, my brother knows the difference between reality and a dream.

Refusal to act? I'm pretty sure everyone acted in the appropriate and most reasonable manner given the situation. They tried to get the fark up out of there.

My remark was in regards to your misguided belief that anyone who is in a protector role as a profession is going to give two flying sh*ts about the person next to them in that situation. Soldiers and police are paid for what they do. Nobodys getting paid to becoming the primary target of a suited up nutjob whos pointing an AR-15 at them in a dark movie theater.

If it makes any difference, I'm for CCW.

Never under estimate the tactics of the gun hater crowd. I think most of the reviews on RR for Bud's and Cheaper than Dirt are examples of what is fabricated in order to hurt companies that sell firearms. On the gun forums that I have seen, both are respected!

No doubt the scene would have been complete chaos and confusion, but we'll never know since the theater was a no gun zone, so no one had a gun to fire back.. the only people who had a chance to really stop him umarmed would have been the ones in the very first row and only before he started shooting. unless they all rushed him together (can't get'em all) but since not many people are psychic no one wants to rush a gunman by them selves.

Quote from kalel33 View Post :

speculation is great but we will never know, maybe the CC'er could have stopped him, maybe he couldn't, maybe he would have hit other people on accident.. all 3 are plausible scenarios however none more provable then the last..

Affter much deliberation I've concluded I (personally) do not buy the CC'er woudl have only made it worse argument, it's mostly based on the theory that they will not be able to stop the gunman and instead increase the body count.. while possible we've never had a situation where we've been able to test it because almost all these shootings happen in gun-free zones, this one was no different.

But even if the CC'er did shoot a few innocent people but was able to stop the gunman as bad as that would be would it not be better if someone took the risk and even if they hit a few people stopped the gunman from shooting another dozen? I mean simple math says that's a better outcome?; I didn't say good these situations are never god, just better.

How many people was in the theater? 200? 300? 71 was shot that's almost a 3rd of everyone in there, could a CC'er really have made things worse? I doubt it.
But again speculation as are all opinions on what happen "if only" we'll never know.

Certainly the seating location is critical here, someone in the back of the theater in the middle of the row would have had the longest shot and the least maneuverability.

Put someone near the aisle and suddenly many more options open up.. put them near the front on a aisle seats and finally you have a very real fighting chance of doing something.

If you're 15 rows back (dont know how large the theater is) you're probably near the entrance and can escape.

The news reports he was walking up and down the isle but many witnesses say he was more or less stationary near the exit, some report it was not body armor but a tactical vest. other have said it was type IIA armor, which is not even remotely "heavy armor" most cops wear type II or IIA (im talking patrol not swat).

until the trial we wont fully know exactly what type of armor or vest he was wearing.
