    I was just wondering for the past 3 years, what has been the best selling NEW (not Used) handgun at gun shops?

    Please no which is better talk, just market share...and statistics if possible.

    As Tommy Lee Jones said in that early 90's film The Fugitive, "Get yourself a Glock".

    My guess would be the Glock 22 or 17, maybe the model 19?

    The Springfield XD line from what I have read is outselling the Glock.

    In terms of specific models, I believe I've read that the Glock 19 is the most prolifically distributed and sold handgun in the United States.

    In terms of "general models" I would guess that if you lumped all 1911 sales together they would probably be a close second.

    WOW, from your sig line, you own a lot of XDs!

    but i'm 'thinking' the OP meant just joe blows walking in off the street - i doubt he meant total sold since the late '80s to now or LEO dept purchases...THATS ASSSSSuming on my part though what he was asking?

    Buds has to be one of the largest retailers around. In October 2011 they reported the RugerLCP was the top selling handgun for 2011. Interesting that S&W Sigma 9 came in at 2nd place and Sigma 40 third place in handgun sales.

    Not surprised that Glock is not well represented on Bud's list. Bud's prices on Glocks are not much better than your LGS.

    With the recent problems cropping up with newly made Glocks and the 9mm M&Ps....the XDm or Walther PPQ might indeed be stepping it to out-sell the Glocks as far as handguns go.

    However, yes, the Ruger 10-22 is probably the highest selling firearm....doesn't everyone here have at least one? LOL
