As previously mentioned, better deals can be had. I would think 260-280 prior to rebate to be a good deal. They are not as well fit as a Glock or XD, but are now a reliable and well made sidearm. Trigger pull is akin to a DA revolver when new and tend to get better with usage. Good gun for the money, backed by a good warranty if something should go wrong. I picked up another SW9GVE this week for 229 after rebate, plus they threw in 50 rnds of +P.
