Default How much did you pay for your M&P Shield?

As I try and keep up with all the posts about the new Shield it seems that pricing is all over the place. I picked mine up Saturday morning at a LGS for $375. He said the $375 price tag was based on his standard mark up, but he may ask $390 for the next batch (since he sold out of the first batch in an hour). And for the record this shop is not really known for having really great pricing.

I am not trying to make anyone feel bad about how much they paid. I never even asked the price when I said I would take it. He could have charged me $475 and I still would have walked out the door with a Shield in a box. So high or low, how much did you pay for your M&P Shield?

Any gun shop selling these below MSRP is missing the boat IMO. They can sell these all day long at $449 with the amount of buzz out there. If you can get one for less, by all means grab one!

I wouldn't support anyone that gouges. Sadly, someone will probably pay that amount.

I was considering one @$449 online = $485 shipped+FFL but then my bike fell over and now won't start so there goes that plan. Probably would have happily paid thar though as there aren't a lot of gun stores around here. Though I like to patronize the closest, it's about 1h away and I don't get to it as often as I'd like. Plus they don't have any. Next closest is 2h away

I'm waiting for the LE edition to be released. If the pricing structure holds true to the rest of the M&P line, the Shield LE should sell for $315 and include an extra magazine.

I know, the urge is strong!

After the comparison pics though, it isn't much smaller than a compact M&P, and a hair bigger than a BG380, so I'm waiting.
I hate paying more than I have to for anything.

What all these pictures have really done is make me want a 3913!!

I mentioned this in another thread, but what is really bizarre is that this same gun shop had it priced at $399 on Gun Genie!

That made me mad, so when I ordered it I used a different gun shop.

Still trying to find any available. I was going to wait for the LEO models, but I want to get one right away, once I find them.

I paid MSRP 449.00 and was happy to get it. They are flying off the dealers shelves as fast as they get them in. I am not gonna quibble over the price of a mikky D's meal.

Of those that have gotten their "shield" Is there any noticeable difference in the trigger compared to the MPc? Thank You.

My LGS got in two today both the 9mm's the 40's will be coming out later this month, both guns are already sold but one had not been picked up yet so I got to examine one of the nines. I am definitely gonna get a 40 as soon as they come in an also order a 9MM barrel from Smith & Wesson or Midway soon!

Also these guns sold for 419.00 plus sales tax and also the $10 background check! They were gonna try to pass a law that carry permit holders would not have to even have the background check but it was shot down in the legislature last year!

Academy Sports & Outdoors has them for $399.

But I compared the Shield to M&P 9c and bought the M&P 9c Compact

I put it on my Cabelas card $449 and have one year to pay off interest free, plus points/$$ towards next purchase.



EDIT : I complained to Cabelas CS and received a refund of $53.00

Pretty much the same, except the reset is more pronounced. Mine was reworked (like my 9c was done 2yrs ago) new sear and other good stuff done to it. Trigger pull is @ 4lbs, over travel shortened.

$390 is a great price. Buds is selling them at $449 plus you have to be a VIP member which is another $25 bucks. They sold out quickly but they have more in stock today.

The economic disadvantage of my LGS is that we have to pay the hefty local tax to feed local socialism. Sometimes it is more advantageous to buy online, but I usually buy locally.

A local gun store has one priced at $429 plus tax. I didn't purchase it but it was nice to see it was in stock so I could hold it in my hand. There's a very nice feel to that gun.

A little pawn shop / gun shop in N. Ft. Myers. I heard another customer ask the owner if / when they'd be getting any. The owner said he was expecting them at any time. He checked the delivery that had just been made and discovered two. I got one of them. A case of 9MM ammo is scheduled for delivery to my door today by UPS. A comparison between my Shield, M&P9C and PM9 is upcoming.
