looking to buy an everday carry pistol for open carry
I was looking at the Baby Eagle but the MR dealers here rarely carry them and as soon as they get them they are gone so I am having to look for something else. I was looking at the SD40 today on the Smith & Wesson site but saw no mention of whether or not it had an external safety. Does it have one? My other choice as of right now my other choice would be the Ruger SR45 which does have a safety. A safety is a requirement of mine on any gun I own. Suggestions on other pistols are welcome.
P.S. Please do not bring the argument that no safety is needed as my mind is made up and I don't want to hear it.
Yea I asked and none of the dealers said they would accept it including Cabela's. I was told they would have to order it. Always same response "No we can't get anything right now". It does not really bother me looking at other options esp when it means saving a little money since the dealers here mark the Baby Eagle up to almost $1000 when MR says $630.
Billings,Mt asked a few pawnshops as well and most said no because there is no profit in it. Only one said they would but I won't give them my business after they were selling a stock Savage Axis for $600.
The sd40 does not have a safety, but you can get the M&Ps with a manual safety. And IMO they are much better pistols.
Ok thanks. The primary reason I am looking at other pistols is since noone ever has them in stock I cannot handle one before I purchase it which is not something I am comfortable with on such a large purchase. Next time I am at the GS I will have to check out the M&P's.
