    Good news and kinda bad news

    I was out bumming around and decided to go to Cal-Ranch. I wanted to see how often they get the M&P shield in stock. I started looking over all the handguns and didn't see one, and was about to walk out. then something caught my eye, a shiny(not really) brand new M&P Shield .40. I had been calling all the LGS for the last month looking for one. Now I am the proud new owner of a M&P Shield(kinda). Here is the bad news, I didn't have enough money to buy it so I had to put it on layaway

    Consider yourself lucky as a lot of gun stores in my area are no longer offering layaway and you did find a Shield! Love mine in 9mm.

    Your gonna like it. I love my 9mm. You might want to think of some Talon rubber grips for that little beast.

    Plus 10000 on that post! M&P's are very difficult to come by in my area. The Shields are even harder to find. Be happy, happy, happy!!!

    My LGS has been getting a reasonably steady supply of 9mm Shields in. However, I believe they go out much faster than they come in!

    They ought to change the name from Shield to Bigfoot. I've heard about them, but never seen one myself.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    My LGS told me they won't layaway any guns with "high capacity magazines". I told him that I didn't even see any "high capacity magazines" in his store. Norton.gif

    Congrats! I *finally* got one myself yesterday -- a 9 mm. Probably paid a little too much, but I've been looking for one for quite a while. They don't stay on the shelf longer than an hour or two around here. You were wise to get one while you could!
