Bummer man, move to Florida you can have it the minute you lay down the money with a CWP.

To the OP:
Go for the M&P .40 at $399.
Shoot Straight's have good deals from time to time.
When I'm in Tampa I stop in to see the current deals.
I wish one would open up closer to me- maybe one day.

Yeah I know...but then my basement would probably look like this...

You can very easily work in the price of a new gun into the total costs of flooring, impact windows, landscaping etc...It does take some careful finagling but it can be done.

And people bag on California? People here complain about a 10 day wait, but 8-10 weeks sucks.

Thank you to everyone for the input. I am going to buy one today as soon as I can get back down there.

Dude, I actually buy few - I do a lot of trading though. At the point where I just need to sell some now as I'm pretty happy with the collection...

I paid 449.00 back in jan. 2010 and I thought I got a heck of a deal. I would jump all over that deal you prob. will not get that price again. If you like the M&p fs do not waste time get it done and have some fun.

Well, I'm back from Shoot Straight and things changed quite a bit once I got there. Myself and a store employee looked over all 9 of the S&W's they had and only found two that I liked enough to buy. Most were very used looking, rough in some spots and some of the mags were very worn. There was only one mag that came with it and the hard case which were scuffed up here and there. On the same table was something that I had to think long and hard about a Springfield Armory XD40, brand new, extra mag, nice case all the paperwork etc. for $429. So, I could get the used Smith with only one mag, night sights, (a plus for sure) scuffed case and not knowing how many rounds had been fired or the brand new XD. The winner is......




Hey all you Springfield lovers rejoice!!!
