Default I could use some buying advice.

I need to buy another gun right now like a hole in the head but that has never stopped me before. I was at a big gun shop today and saw a deal I really wanted to jump on but didn't. They have several *show display* Smith & Wesson M&P 40 full size pistols with night sights. They are $399 with all the xtras including the hard case. I need to call them and ask some more questions but they looked very nice. What do you all think? Thanks for looking.

You would be foolish not to jump on that. I wouldn't think twice about it. As a matter of fact where is this store? I am in the market for an M&P. That price sounds good to me.

It is the brand new Shoot Straight store in Ft. Myers, Florida. I agree it is pulling me like a tractor beam.

Didn't you just buy a new M&P 40c?? I seem to remember a thread where you had just bought a new firearm.

Are you trying to give NGIB a run in the most pistols purchased in a month's time category??

Life is short - If you can afford it and you want it, you should have it.

Unless She Who Must Be Obeyed has other plans for that cash. Like new flooring.

I would have left the store 400 and some odd dollars short in the wallet.

Yes, I did just get the 40c, I traded in toward that so it wasn't bad on the wallet. No flooring or anything else right now but I have my own play money. The problem is instead of saving first then buying, I like to buy and they pay off. Not a good habit but I keep it managable.

A good price on a good pistol, I paid $100+ more for my M&P 45 (with night sights) a few years ago and still believe it was money well spent.

The ONE and ONLY benefit of NJ gun laws...no impulse buying of handguns. See a gun you like, it's yours in 8-10 weeks after the permits clear.

$399 is a smokin deal. You should buy two and give me one just because it's such a good deal.
