What’s wrong with this ad.

#1

Post by Tex1961 » Tue Jun 25, 2019 6:32 pm

Found this on a local gun trader site. I’m like REALLY.

I have a Glock 48 that I owned for a few months. It’s been my weekend carry. I have a holster for it and the original box, 1 magazine and a speed loader. I never had the chance to fire it. Not one round has been down the chamber. Asking $425 I can provide pictures for those interested, no trades

Well it's a Glock for starters :biggrinjester:

Is there a Glock 48? I didn't think there was but I can't keep up with all their numbers.

A magazine and a speed loader? That's interesting. Or is it the easy magazine loader? I forgot what they are called but make loading magazines easier.

Weekend carry but never shot? That's not a good plan.

Do rounds go in the chamber and down the barrel or am I confused?

Maybe you should ask for pictures and share cause we might want to see this.

The Glock 48 is the single stack Glock 19 basically.

I am surprised at the number of people who will carry a firearm though they have never shot it and carry ammo they have never tried in the firearm.

There’s an article in the current issue of Gun-Tests magazine, comparing the new Mossberg pistol, to the G43X and the G48. They paid $488 for their G48, NIB. As soon as the seller walked out that door with his new gun, the value dropped. So $425 doesn’t seem unreasonable for the "used" gun in the OP. ALL Glocks come with at least one magazine, and a magazine loader. All of MY Glock’s came with a minimum of two, and some with three mags. But maybe Glock is shipping the 48 with only one mag. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The G43X in the above mentioned article was purchased for $542, but it came with a set of Ameriglo night sights.

What’s REALLY wrong with that ad is that the seller had been carrying the gun without ever once firing it - at least to see if it shoots to point of aim - if not to make sure that it functioned as advertised. THAT's just dumb

I had to read it at least 3 times to make sure I wasn’t reading it wrong. Now, I don’t know if he has his chl, I’d like to think so, but I’m not to surprised at most things nowadays.

After working selling guns, very few things surprise me any more, regarding the way people use, and carry their guns.
I was surprised by the number of people who carried guns they had never fired, cleaned, or even knew how to operate. Some simply bought a gun, loaded it, and I guess, believed that in a SD situation, they would somehow, instantly become proficient.
We explained to every customer, how to clean their gun, before shooting it, how to break it in, what type of ammo to use for target practice, and SD. Extolled the virtue, of training, and practice, etc..
But we would still have them come in after their first shooting session, complaining about their new gun jamming, the first question we asked, was if they had cleaned it first, and invariably, the answer was no.
They would show up for their LTC class, with their new gun, never having been removed from the case, and not having even glanced at the owner's manual.
Some would insist, that we were wrong about JHP ammo being better for SD because their (insert misinformed resident expert) told them, that FMJ was the best.
Others pooh poohed, the idea of training, because they had shot their dad's SA 22 revolver as a kid, and could hit tin cans with it. (40 years ago) So their new, 9 mm semi auto, with decocker, would be no problem. :roll:

Be careful out there, they walk among us.

Absolutely. *nod*
You saw it from a seller perspective. You definitely saw a LOT of these yahoos. I am sure you have stories for life.
I haven't been to a public range in over a decade for safety reasons.
And when I got my LTC, the qualification round scared the bejesus out of me. The instructor had to disqualify two wives. My guess is that the gentlemen who were taking the class just somehow talked their incompetent wives into getting an LTC with them at the same time. Those ladies had never fired a weapon, never held one, couldn't hit the target but the ceiling sure had a few new holes.
I was the only one in the class to place every shot on target. I was also the only one with a 100% score. Most other scores were barely passing. I do not say this for bragging rights, I say this for comparison. And we had 1 marine and 2 army guys in the class. (it turned out later they were not combatants, they were IT kids)
So if an amateur like me can be at the top of an LTC class, it scares me greatly to know that the other applicants passed too and have a loaded handgun on them or in their purse (probably without a trigger-guard holster).

So to reiterate Jusme's position: be careful out there, they walk among us! :eek6

FWIW, whoever asks me about my LTC, the point I ALWAYS stress out to them is "training, training, training".

Usually, yes. But maybe the 48 doesn’t? Or, maybe he seller meant one spare mag and just worded it poorly. He also called the magazine loader a "speed loader", so maybe he just didn’t know how to word the ad.

I'm going to vote for 'poor wording', as
https://www.gunsamerica.com/910860214/G ... s-adde.htm
implies that it comes with 2 mags just like every other NIB Glock offering (well, except for the ones that come with 3)

Glock 48s and 43Xs come with TWO mags in the case.
