    Shield

    I am lookinf for a new Smith and Wesson shield in either 9mm or 40 cal. I have been trying to nail down a delaer that gives LEO discounts. On gun shop near me wants 515.00 for either one. LEO prices are down to 319.00. Anyone have a secret dealer who does this?
    One more step and it's on!

    Good Luck!!!! I started looking for an M&P Shield .40 last fall/winter. After searching and searching and calling about every dealer I could think of I found a Kahr CM40 on Buds Police Supply. I paid $368.00 and had it shipped to my agency with a letterhead. I've had it six months now and it's been an outstanding off duty carry gun. I went to Kahr Talk.com and read the boards about the break in procedure and I never had an issue. I put talon grips on it and a Pearce grip extension and I load it with 6 rounds of Ranger T Series 180gr JHP. I carry it in a JP IWB kydex holster. The shield is 1/2" longer and 1/2" taller and isn't worth paying $100 + over MSRP that some dealers are charging for it when there are other options. I carry the M&P40 full size on duty and S&W makes great guns, not knocking them at all.

    Kittery Trading Post has a Shield in .40 for $429. Not LEO discount price but still not a bad price considering the current environment. Even with shipping & transfer fees, you'll do better than the local gun shop.

    A shield is worth $500 IMO. I have owned 2. Still own the .40 cal version.

    The Heritage Guild in Easton, PA has the Shield and their price is the MSRP of $450. They may give LEO discounts: ask the manager, Steve.

    There have been a steady stream of both Shield models coming through my favorite LGS the past month. They sell them really quick, at $449 a pop.

    Seems you may never get a discount on this gun. It is sought after by many and is easily sold for MSRP in hours after receiving shipment. Many stores are after their bottom line. Make money. Good luck, it took my 3 months of looking in a 500 mile radius when I just found one hours after shipment arrived.....I bought it. The clerk said he has never seen a Shield in 6 months and may never see another one in another 6 months.
