After watching the posts on this forum I shopped for an M&P and ordered one from Bud's. Of course I got the "We're out of those but expect a shipment any day." I guess I can understand the supply/demand issue considering that Bud's price is more than $100 cheaper than any of the local stores in town including BPS. Even after the shipping and 3% for C-cards. They told me it should ship by the end of the week. That's not too bad except now that I've made the decision and ordered the pistol I'm getting very impatient. It will be interesting to see if Bud's customer service is as advertised.
