I got to thinking this morning regarding my recent purchases. They've all been S&W. A few years ago, I wouldn't have purchased a S&W for anything when they capitulated to the Clinton administration.



Now, with new management and ownership, this company is on the move. My last batch of purchases over 4 months have included their SW1911PD (which is awesome!), M&P 9mm, and the 642, and I don't plan to stop. With their reintroduction of the Model 29, I just might to have to get that. Then they have their new rifles and shotguns. Their O/U shotguns sure look sweet and the M&P15's get high marks wherever you look. Of course, I'm looking *hard* at their .45 M&P.



Recently, with their purchase of Thompson/Center, they've jumped into another arena of guns which I own and look to buy more. All in all, Smith & Wesson look to be on a roll and I couldn't be happier for them or with their products.



(Now if only they'd get out of that socialist state of MA. :roll: )

Just think I called them about a mistake in shipping mags. I received 2 10 round Sigma mags instead of 10 round M&P40c mags. While talking to the m=nice gentleman I accidently said "even if I ordered the Sigma mags they would have been the hi caps since I don't live in a communist state.

In the past year, I have bought 4 S&W pistols.. If I buy one more, I will get a free set of steak knives.. LOL



I have been a fan of S&W for years.. The first pistol I have ever bought was a S&W.. They are American made.. Need I say more..

S&W is likely stuck in MA. some of the equipment would be very hard to move. The machines that do the rifling on the Model 41 barrels for example are set into the bedrock. Some of the forges are also built to stay.



Besides, you can imagine the crap that exists on the property. They would have to do some serious cleanup to sell. There are still sections of the factory floor with wood blocks soaked in oils from the early days of trying to create a non-slip surface that would absorb spills. Some of that floor is replaced, but much remains.
