This morning, rather impulsively, I decided that I really wanted the M&P .22. I hit up my savings account, and made the 120 mile [round trip] journey to the nearest gun show. I took my time, shopped around, and noted the usual huge disparity in prices for the same gun. The highest price for the M&P .22 I saw was $479.00, and the lowest was $325.00. Lots of other prices between the two. I bought the lowest-priced one in the building, picked up a spare mag for it while I was there, and headed for home while my marriage was still intact.
Looking forward to shooting it.
