    Don't assume that.

    They are selling the on sale S&W 442 that said LEO only to civilians.

    My 442 will be here Friday.

    Did anybody look at the new S&W .380 at the bottom of that page? I didn't think it was possible to make something uglier than a Taurus .380 but I think they've done it. :faint:

    I'm not an M&P fan but that IS a great deal!! Plus it looks like it comes with a Serpa CQC rig.

    Now the chart says the 9mm full-size is around $387 but when I clicked on it, it shows the price at $440-ish and no mention of a holster included.

    And do OMB's prices include shipping like Buds?

    Awesome deal if it does!!:)

    I have been lusting after an M&P 40 compact but if I buy another gun now my wife will kill me with it. That is a screaming good deal with a nice holster to boot.

    I don't know if it was for officers only or everyone. Hopefully it is for everyone.

    I just wanted to share that with everyone on here. I am sure there might be a few that wants an M&P but don't want to spend between $500-$600 for one. I purchased mine for $359 a couple years ago and I love it! It's been a good pistol to me.

    Holy hell!! That's the highest shipping price I've ever seen!! :shocked:

    That pretty much just killed the deal.

    Well it beats paying taxes anyday! They get as high as 10% here.

    Wow!! I bet you have a really hard time finding local deals on ANYTHING with that high of sales tax! It's only 6% here. I forget which state it was on the east coast...but they had ZERO sales tax!! I think it was a pretty anti-gun state though IIRC. I also heard their property taxes were insane!

    As far as the deal goes, in your case, you'll save a few bucks but when I see shipping like that, it's got to be hands down the cheapest anywhere for me to bite and in this case it's still not clear if it is for citizens as well or just sworn LE.

    The price listed is after the mail in rebate, but you have the option of getting two free mags or the $50 rebate. Everyone usually ops for the free mags.

    As far as it being LEO only just because it says police supply in the company name doesn't always mean they only sell to LEOs. I'm sure a quick call would get the answers you seek. I'm looking for a new 9mm so I may give them a call today.

    Oh nice! They might get some business from me in the future but it has to be cheaper than anywhere else and a gun I actually want.

    Not knockin the M&P. It's a good gun. I just don't really want one.

    Thanks for the info!:)
