    Good for S&W, they really need to step up their game with marketing to the leo market.

    British hippie deals aside, S&W has gotten back to their old awesome customer service self...but gun manufacturers do this all the time, why is it news for RPD? :dunno: They're not "free", they're turning in their old guns, which S&W will sell in Chophandistan for $400 each.

    This is the single pro police article the Nuisance and Disturber runs every other year or so.

    My department doesn't issue weapons, you have to buy your own. The only weapon they issue is a S&W AR for rifle qualified officers.

    I have no idea why, especially considering companies like CZ and Kahr aren't.
