I am still waiting for my second one straight from CT, seems they cannot keep any for themselves.
Maybe one of the moderators could start a list to see how manny would be interested and we could do a one-time discount group buy with Crimson Trace for our M&P's.

What is the cost of manufacturing, testing, warranty? Add in their cost of the accessories that go in the box, the box itself, shipping ... Then there is the cost of advertising, engineering, customer service people, receptionist, salesmen ... keeping the lights on, paying a lease on their factory, health care for employees ...
If you can crunch those numbers and still get a decent return on their investment at $100 a pop, I guarantee you they'll be interested to hear your report.
