My, my, this thread is heating up
I do hope the mighty Mod-Gods are merciful to MercyfulFate.. And he is not smitten with my lord and master, Tuttle' s, ban-Hammer.
Anyhoo, I really don't see why S&W would lie about this. There is a reason why they want destroyed guns back. It allows them to assess weak points or problems in production.
Why would they risk a potential suit, when they can just send a free gun? Obviously they have their facts lined up..
As for contacting Federal for you
, I'll have to check my paperwork, I had no idea S&W agreed to be my lawyer when I bought their gun!
