    Called Smith and Wesson about Shield availability

    I have a deposit down on a Shield. The clerk at the store said one guy had a deposit from April and still hasn't received his firearm yet.

    So I called Smith and Wesson. I asked them about Shield availability. After a deathly long silence, the guy said he gets like 5 calls per day asking the same question. They are making 300-400/day with a backlog of 40,000. Hmmmmm. I am 12th on the list. I guess I will be waiting a while.

    Odd, there's one on the shelf that's been sitting there for a week now at Gander near where I work.

    I bought one for my son more than a month ago but I had to drive 90 miles to get it. Get in touch with the biggest S&W dealers in your area, find out when they get their shippments and call early on that day. Keep calling till you get one. The more S&W's they sell the more they will get.

    Its a great little gun and well worth the 399 I paid for it.

    Guess I just got incredibly lucky with mine. Picked it up about a week ago by calling every FFL in the area until one told me he had just gotten a shield in the day before and hadn't even priced it yet. Got it for $410 too which I hear is a decent price.

    Could be worst, you could 13th?
    Kidding aside, I hope your wait is very short.
