Bay Area Gun Stores

Hi guys,

Hoping someone can steer me in the right direction.

I’m looking to purchase a Glock19. Nobody, I mean nobody has this in stock in the Bay Area!

With Covid19 and the protests across the country, I’m being told that much of the Glock inventory that was present in gun stores across the Bay is sold out and it’s unlikely that more will be available for 4months+

Does anyone know where I can buy a Glock19 (legally) from a Bay Area gun store today? Anyone have stock?

Thanks

Be careful with this. A FFL will not sell you a pistol if you are an out of state resident. They will sell you a long gun.

It would be illegal, that's all. Ship it to CA FFL and do proper transfer once back home.

Further fanning the flames, you can buy a rifle and a shotgun in Idaho and send it to California.
A non-resident can’t buy a handgun in Idaho.

Maybe a guy in Idaho could buy it and later sell it to you and then you send it to an FFL in California.

Then, you get the forms online and pay California DOJ a fee ($19?) and you get a letter “You may have your gun.”

Using anyone as a “straw man” to buy a gun is a crime so maybe forget the whole thing.

S&W MP9 Shield. No glocks in the entire Phoenix valley when I bought mine in March. 9mm ammo still in short supply. I have mine in my nightstand by the bed. Loaded. Fuck locks, burglars won't have their guns in a gun safe when they enter my home.

The kids who are old enough to reach the gun have been taught how to use it.

Hi guys, thanks for the comments, few things:

a.) I started the discussion in reference to legal gun ownership. Although I appreciate the reminder that we don’t know who is lurking and reading these posts, there’s nothing Wrong with what’s being discussed.

My motivation for the post is that I can’t find stock anywhere in the Bay Area for the handgun I’m looking to purchase legally in the state of CA.

b.) although I appreciate the suggestions, my mind is made up and I’m not considering any alternatives to the Glock19 at this time.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

Depends where you are. Not available in my area in N. IL. No ship to store or in store purchase either. The order button doesn't even show up like other guns. I've been looking and there's not much available out there online at least for handguns here in IL. I'm still doing my Covid duty and staying home as much as possible besides grabbing food, groceries and beer. lol. So I prefer online ordering. And I do have an FFL in my town as well.

No harm in being discreet. It's not being fearful, it's not being worried, it's not being paranoid. It's just being cautious.


Yep I agree with this. In today’s world you can’t be too cautious about the information you let out. Some fucktard bureaucrat or politician can drop a dime on you with numerous agencies to fuck up your life. Social media especially is not safe. Don’t say anything on there ever if possible it could get attached to your real identity.

How close is the nearest red town, maybe they would have more in stock and not such a high demand. Also you could order online and have it sent to your nearest FFL.

The 45 Colt is an awesome cartridge. Rossi has a similar model that will shoot 454 Casull or 45 Colt.

I have asked for Henry to offer this as an option because they both use 0.452" bullets. The Hornady FTX is safe in a tube magazine and performs a lot better than a flat nose bullet. A 454 Casull load shot from a carbine will achieve speeds in excess of 2,000 fps with 225 grain bullet. This will stop most animals or people in 1 hit.

The 357 Magnum version is good too. I dont own a 357 but I have shot them many times. You can safely use 38 Special in a 357 magnum firearm. You might even have a bit more magazine capacity when you load 38 special.

That Henry Rifle in .357/.38 is a great choice. Also the intimidation factor "Holy shit, I'm up against a Wild West Cowboy". And the legal factor: It looks less scary to a jury than a plastic TOTALLYTACTICAL rifle.

Mr Nuttboxer,

The Doberman security system (https://www.homedepot.com/p/Doberman-Security-Wireless-Door-Motion-Detector-Alarm-2-Pack-SE-0104-2PK/301170036)
is one way to increase your response time if you don't have already a security system. It is low cost, wireless motion system devices (2 of them) with no monthly fee.

If the motion sensor goes off, it will scare the intruder as well as alert you.

Also the IPhone (and I believe Android phone) has the feature of pressing the power button 5 times to automatically call 911.

Just be aware that some .357 loads will go through a foot of sheet rock or pine. There goes the neighborhood.
Anyone have one these shotguns for home protection? Plus: no pistol grip. Minus: all black. What would a jury think of Muh 20 inch barrel....

This afternoon I waited 1.5 hours in line at Turner Outdoorsman in San Marcos and put a down payment on a G19. Total cost including California sales tax is $647.

Of course they didn't have anything in stock but said they expect a bunch of Glocks to arrive in August. So I am probably 6-8 weeks away from getting my hands on it.

Many of the people I spoke to in line were first time gun shoppers and lamenting how retarded Democrat politicians have become with the Defund the Police B.S.

Did they offer any thoughts on how the reality of buying a gun turned out different from their expectations of how easy it was supposed to be? Did they think we need to make people to jump through even more hoops or the ones we already have is (more than) enough?

Anything less than a gatling gun is going to be a letdown. At least try to get a Polish AK47 or something else cool.

I didn't get that far into discussion with them.

Virtually all of the pistols were sold out, so alot of people were just putting down payments and have to wait until next month to get them.

I asked if they could at least start the background check and 10 day waiting period now, but they said they can't do that until the gun hits their warehouse so they can assign a serial number to me.

That's OK. I promised my wife I wouldn't buy anything today. I just want to start looking and get the process going. I only had to put down $150 refundable deposit and provide ID. When I pick it up, I have to bring proof of residence and take the test for firearm safety certification.

This is an interesting thread! I still consider myself a gun noob, so I'll add some info that might be helpful.

Last week I waited about 40 minutes in line outside the Turner's Outdoorsman in Signal Hill (and I had an appointment!) before I was let in to order a new 9mm. There weren't any 9mm pistols in stock. I've been wanting to try a CZ 75, so I put a deposit down and they said they'd call me when it comes in. I figure sometime in August. The price is $669.99.

If you live in California, you're limited to 3rd generation Glocks. The newer ones aren't on the California Handgun Roster. This can be a problem if you're looking at pistols from online gun shops. Online gun shops HATE having to deal with Cal. gun laws. Many won't even ship to FFLs in our state anymore. The best-priced 9mms online are RARELY California compliant.

For 9mm, I only have a S&W SDVE 9mm (my first gun). I like it, and can shoot it fairly well. It has a tactile loaded chamber indicator, so I think it's a good first pistol, and pretty cheap (when I bought it 5 years ago).

I think the CZ 75 is the pistol I should have started with. It's all steel and heavy, so it's probably going to have less recoil than the SDVE. I'm hoping I do better at the range with it. It has a thumb safety, too. I'm not sure if Bay Area or Patrick have semi-automatic pistols yet, but if I had to start from scratch, I'd try a big heavy gun with a safety for my first 9mm .

If your gun of choice is not in stock in 9mm Luger consider buying it in .40s&w. Nothing wrong with that caliber it's just fell out of fashion lately so availability could be better during the panic. You'll have a gun you want albeit in different caliber and you can usually buy a 9mm Luger conversion kit for it later.

@brazil66, the first gun I bought was a CZ75B after shooting all of the guns that I could try.

You will enjoy shooting it. I recommend the compacts too. I have the CZ75 P01 compact, probably the perfect all around gun.

Check out Cajun Gun Works for things like sights and grips, etc.

I put a new set of sights on my CZ75, and rubber grips. The wood grips were nice, but I didn’t keep them.

Would a pump action AR-15 be legal in California? There are kits being used in New Zealand to convert the semi-autos to pump action with minimal effort.

I haven't shot that. My dad has the S&W MP. I don't like it. Mostly I just don't like the trigger action but those can be replaced/changed.

No offense, if you like that. To me: yuck
