    Got a new (to me) pistol today!!!

    I get an email this morning from my gun club stating that there is a member that is wanting to sell his M&P40c for $400. The guy said he had owned it for only a year and has put approximately 200 rounds through it. I called him up and went to his house and checked it out.

    Turns out it was a great looking and feeling gun, it also came with 4 magazines. I asked why he was selling it and he told me that he originally purchased the gun for CC, but then found out that he was going to have to pay almost $300 to get his permit. He said it wasn't worth it and just wanted to get rid of the gun. Oh well, his loss.

    Here are some crappy pics I took real quick.

    Should not have to pay that much money to exercise a God given right. That really bothers me.

    I agree. My buddy that lives in the neighboring county had to pay $50 and we though that was more than it needs to be. I only had to pay $15 for the clerk fees and background check and no other costs. My county treated me right for a change.

    Nice purchase, I'm assuming that you already have your CCW permit, if not...get busy.
    $300 for a permit is a crime in and of itself.

    You got a great deal. A co-worker of mine just bought one of those two weeks ago for 525. Congrats

    I am an LEO, so no permit required for me. $300 seems outrageous to me as well.

    It is my understanding is that $150 goes to the CCW instructors and $150 goes to the county for the actual permit.

    Those are a very sleek looking gun. Just like my Glocks too much. Nice grab on your part.
