ya cant its marketing, you give stuff away to gain market share.
Plus folks dig that cops in their region use a particular gun, if no cop uses this how can it be good? that sort of stuff, they break even on the units, but now they can say they are charitable and we want cops to have the best gun at the lowest price, float a press release and get $50,000 in free advertising by having a few stories in local papers written about it and get it on the local news etc.
The ones that get jipped are the people that buy these things .
I was over on the M&P forum and ready to buy one , I was down to getting a Glock 21 or a M&P 45 . After all the rust stories I heard , read about and saw , even in real life localy , I went with the Glock .
Until S&W gets the bugs out of the M&P , I wont touch one . And thats all I have to say about that
