At my local store they have the same gun S&W M&P 2.0 9 mm Shield with laser. New gun comes with 2 mags, used gun comes with 4 mags and a soft carry case.New gun $509.90... Used gun price is $350...... so $159.00 less in price plus 2 additional mags and carry bag..... I'm thinking that even though its used , being a Smith and Wesson 2.0 should still be a reliable gun to purchase , right?

I would see if you could test fire the used one before purchasing, never know if the previous owner was getting rid of a problem pistol. Also does the original warranty transfer? just my 2 cents

Bought my mp shield 9mm used and haven't had any issues with it.

Here's a question for the group. Is there like a carfax for guns .? You plug in the sn and it tells you how many past owners it has.

I did some poking around and found this...
Before accepting a trade in or a gun on consignment, reputable dealers check the serial number of a trade in gun on the database to make sure it is not listed as stolen. That protects you and the dealer. Mostly the dealer, I think, but if you wind up with a stolen gun it will be confiscated and you will not be reimbursed.

That MIGHT work in person but don't be shocked if while buying online someone tells you to fly a kite.
Nobody in their right mind these days will give a serial number over the internet to a random nobody that says they are a buyer.
All it takes is one time fighting with cops about who owns it because the random nobody with dementia filed a stolen gun report in another state an hour after you gave them the serial number.

I rarely go through an FFL to buy/sell firearms. Have all the necessary paperwork in case it comes up, but I’m pretty sure most of the firearms I’ve handled have only passed through an FFL once.

Nothing wrong with the used gun. But if you anticipate keeping it for many years, splurge on the new one. This is fact - The cost of a gun is nothing. The true cost comes from the ammo you feed it. I prefer new guns, but have had a few used ones, and ALL the used guns were excellent !

I rarely buy a new gun. Just look it over. Lock the slide open and put a bore light in. Close the slide and pull the trigger.
Buy it!
