    Been looking at snagging an M&P, but noticing most mags are either backordered or out of stock at some of my typical haunts (CDNN, topgunsupply, midway, etc.) - shortage these days??

    I just got the 3 pack at Cabelas online. At a much better price than ordering direct from S&W

    I seem to remember that the first time S&W offered their incentive program involving a free magazine with the purchase of a new M&P pistol, the company ended up back-ordered more than 75,000 magazines. Mec-Gar makes a lot of magazines, granted, but that's a fairly healthy back order to try and fill quickly.

    Then the M&P pistol line seemed to really take off when it came to sales, both LE/Gov and commercial.

    The last time I called back to order some spare magazine springs for the 40c I was told that Mec-Gar hadn't been able to ship any separate springs for that model magazine, yet, just the complete magazines.

    The popularity and increasing sales of the M&P model line is making for some heavy demand on S&W and its vendors. ;)

    Man, you ain't kidding! Just picked up a full-size 9 that included the threaded barrel, shop had a few in stock, but at shop prices ($42) - told me the same thing.

    Thanks TSA and Mike - unfortunately no dice there, both were out when I looked :(

    Wow, I just looked at 44mag and they are out.
    I have 16 each of the 10 round (I'm an IDPA shooter) and 8 of the 17's.
    M&P 9 FS and M&P 9 Pro both bought with a '2 free mags' offer.
    Maybe I should think about selling a few at a large profit. lol
