Almost picked up a 3rd Gen S&W semi auto today

I forget all the model #s, but my local shop has had a 15 round, 4" barrelled S&W stainless semi-auto sitting there for a long time. As these guns have been discontinued not too long ago, I kinda want one now.

I was up there comparing the FNP45 to the XD45, and I remembered the gun - It is $100 off, so it's like $430.

Anyway, it has a bit of surface rust on it - Just barely. The salesguy got some flitz and polished the slide up beautifully.

However, there were some spots on teh frame he couldn't get off. If he could have gotten the frame to look as nice as the slide, I was going to buy it. Oh well...

I knew my wife was gonna be upset anyway :x

At the next gunshow I go to, I may look at those, if I can find a NEW one in 9mm. If so, I'll put off the XD45 purchase for a while.

No offense Ship or Vulcan... not a fan. Bad triggers, wrong grip angle, FTE problems. Granted, I have fired only 3... but that's enough for me. If you bring one to the range Ship... I'll pass. :p
Was that a fat joke?!!! :-D

I admit the P99 has a great grip shape. But I just can't get used to the mag release. I tried the P99 DAO, P99QA, and the P99AS, I shoot them fine but no way in heck do I want to have to quick change a mag under stress with one. I have Karma'd or sold them all except...

I still have a P99cAS NIB with a Milt Sparks Watch Six Holster left if you want it. :D
