So I guess the Democrats passing gun laws is finally worrying people. My search for an M&P45 began on Friday and expanded as the weekend went on. I called or visited every gun shop within twenty miles of my house. No luck. I checked online vendors: PSA, Brownell’s, BudsGunShop, RKGuns, and others. Still no luck. Then I checked other places: Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Shoot Straight. Nope.
I turned to Arms List. A place on there had one, but the store was a pawnshop more than 200 miles away from my house. They won’t ship.
So I thought that maybe a Glock 21 wouldn’t be so bad. I started over. The only Glock 21 I could find was over $700. Nope.
I broke down and called the South Florida pawnshop and bought it over the phone. As it turns out, my wife and I are taking a road trip to go get it. I just haven’t told her yet. I will have to bribe her with some other activity that we can do while down there. Or I will have to wait until a day I have off and she doesn’t, then go by myself. Cost? $550, plus a 400 mile road trip to go get it.
