Gallery of Guns almost useless. Just spent a 1/2 hour looking through Gallery of guns. I think every semi auto pistol they list is allocated. I could not find one Ruger available or any other pistol I want to purchase.
I was buying a gun occasionally but they do not seem to be able to keep anything I stock for the general public. Allocated I assume means all stock is held for large volume purchasers.

Gallery of Guns is a lister of available guns in gun stores, if the gun shops don't update their inventories to GoG, they are not listed as available. The gun shops around here are all part of that network and most supplies of mid to high level pistols are now on the shelves here. Less expensive guns are being sold as fast as they come in at the moment.

I'm probably wrong, Gallery of Guns (Davidsons) is a distribution center for firearms/wholesaler. They receive firearms from the manufactor and then sell to dealers in their network, or sell direct to you sent to your FFL that is in the network. Your dealer has the final price.

Allocated (verb), distribute according to a plan or set apart for a special purpose.

Kanook has it right. I've purchased several guns from Gun Genie/Davidson's/Gallery of Guns, and they don't have any control over or listing of local shop inventory. They do have a list of local FFLs who will sell the gun you are interested in, based on your geographic parameters, and at what price/fees, but the gun is shipped to the local dealer from Gun Genie.

What what has been happening for the last year or so, I'm sure they sell whatever they can get in as soon as they can get it. I've never seen their stock so low...in fact, when I log on there, I just set my search parameters as "handguns" and "in stock" and see what turns up...which usually isn't much.

They are good to do business with, if you do find something to buy...plus they provide their own warranty for life, so if you are buying a gun that doesn't have a lifetime warranty (like a Kahr) or one that has less than stellar customer service (like Taurus) they are a good place to buy that gun.
