How to Buy
There’s a lot to consider when purchasing a pistol: why you want to buy a pistol, how often you want to use it, the fit and feel of the pistol in your hand, price, and local laws. In this section, we’ll help guide you through the buying process here and in the store.
Remember: Try it before you buy it! When you are ready to try it, you can find an authorized GLOCK dealer by using our DEALER LOCATOR.

Do You Need a Concealed Carry License?
Each state has its own rules for how residents can obtain a concealed carry permit. Some states don’t require a permit, and some states require training that includes classroom instruction and/or live-fire qualification. Most states also require a criminal background check to ensure the purchaser is not prohibited, for any reason, from being issued a concealed carry license.
Check your state’s government website to find out what rules your state has for concealed carry. You may need to check your county website as well.
