It's one of the hottest firearms on the market right now, and Eric Wallace said he can barely keep the Glock in stock at Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna.
"Normally we would have 40 or 50 different models that we would offer in our counter and now it's probably around 15 or 20 different models that we have in stock," Wallace said.
Wallace said demand is at an all time high lately with so much talk about gun control. He said at times they've sold as many as 50 Glocks in one day. So what makes them so attractive?
"Their reliability and accuracy is one of the best for the price. Most of them land between $500 and $550," Wallace said.
CBS Atlanta News spoke with a Glock employee Monday who said there's a 10-month backlog on orders for their guns.
We found out just how popular the Glock is when we spotted Georgia Congressman Phil Gingrey firing one inside the range. He said he toured the Glock facility in Smyrna last week and they are in the process of increasing production.
"It's very much out of control in my opinion, and I think it has to get stopped very quickly because so many weapons in uncontrolled peoples' hands, untrained peoples' hands is very dangerous," gun owner Harry Porter said.
Not only are Glocks hard to come by, so is ammunition these days. Shelves are bare and one gun owner told us people are simply panicking.
"They're afraid they won't have the access one day. That's it, bottom line because people aren't going to register half of them," gun owner Doc Cochran said.
