    A couple of months ago I got a new M&P Shield. MY wife loved it when we took it to the range. So I've been trying to hunt one down for a reasonable(ehm....doesn't really exist) price. Today it arrived!

    I picked up one at a gun show in Orlando last Saturday. Ran 100 rounds through it. Shoots well. Will run another 150, including some self defense rounds through Sunday.

    Looking for holsters now. Got a kydex IWB at the show, looking for a belt holster and a good pocket holster.

    Lawmen's in Raleigh NC was taking orders for them at 325 each. Don't know how long that pricing is good.

    That is a great price. I paid $450 and that was the lowest price at the Orlando Gun Show.

    No disrespect intended but I am not believing $ 350 or $ 325 unless dad owns your LGS.

    I knew someone would say something.
    Bought 2, for me and a suprise for wife. She got mad.. didn't like my suprise. Paid $900 net for both (including transfer fee).
    Then a friend of ours came over willing to pay $550. Sold it right away. So it means.. mine was $350 right? :).

    Oh and.. i still owe my wife a suprise. And she got to keep a free $550. Lol

    It is still not buying it for $350. Although, you did make a good profit. If you can find it for a good price you can make some money off of the sale. Not sure if I would take advantage of a friend though.

    Now that I do believe. Was it a .40 for you and a 9mm for her. That'd be a slick way to get two great guns. Sorry it didn't work out. Excellent recovery though.

    Call Lawmen's in Raleigh, NC. They printed me a quote sheet and honored it when they called me to pick it up about 3 months later. It was 324.99 + tax. With 3 holsters it was $403 out the door.

    Seems everyone wants the 9mm version and not the 40. I got a XDS in today and it's pretty nice, unfortunately I will never own a shield in their current configuration being a south paw and all.

    I heard the XDS is pretty awesome. Maybe a Shield killer.

    I hear ya Bro. S&W is discriminating against us. But, I have the MP40c all leftied out with an Apex trigger kit installed and night sights on the way. It's not that much bigger than the Shield and is leftie friendly.
