This may not look like much, but it's the nucleus of a S&W M&P Pro in .45ACP. The store had three in stock last Monday, but after looking at them, I said "nice, but I have no interest". Now I have an interest, but no handguns.

Last Friday, I spotted this threaded barrel among other assorted parts in the accessories display case. It turns out to be for the S&W M&P .45. They also got their first spare magazines for that handgun. I immediately snapped the stuff up under the principle that "if I've never seen or heard of it before, I've got to grab it". So now I'm waiting for another M&P .45 to come in.

It shouldn't be too long a wait. They get a couple dozen assorted Smiths every week, with 90% gone within days, and the unsold ones refilling their inventory. But like a box of chocolates, one never knows what's in a shipment until it's opened. But it shouldn't be too long a wait, and I think spare mags and a threaded barrel will be harder to come by than the handgun itself. It's that way even with the magazines for the plain vanilla S&W .40 mags, too.

handguns are tricklin’ in to my local gunshop... they got two S&W snubbies in last week... one Ultralite, the other was the standard... They were still there on Tuesday... had a friend score two cans of Varget, sold one to me...
