I do not think the difficulty getting them is coincidental. My guess is that S&W may have been unaware how popular this one would be. I am guessing that when the first Model 60s and before that the first Chiefs Specials came out they were probably tough to get for a while too.

I have also wondered to what extent the issues over the years with the G36 have caused Glock to be cautious with another single stack pistol.
I never talked to anyone who had to fire their gun who said "I wished I had the smaller gun and fewer rounds with me" Just because you find a hundred people who agree with you on the internet does not mean you're right.
