You tried looking online? I spent a year or two looking for a P229 and ran across one on Gunbroker which I rarely look at. This is only my second gun from them in 7 years. One of my local gun stores (where I got my G29) has a display case full of GLOCK pistols. I almost got the G20 but wanted the compact a little more.I'm trying to find the G29 10mm now, it's a hard pistol to find here in Derby City these days.
Been looking for a .45 ACP M&P 2.0 - w/out a thumb safety and at a reasonable price - for some time. To this point had no luck...and I was even willing to overpay a bit!
I was out of town today and had visited a couple of LGSs, w/out success. My phone then showed a store about 25 minutes away. My first thought was not to bother, that it would be a waste of time. But I overcame my doubt, haha, and called. Bingo!
The only issue was that I wasn't looking for one w/ a threaded barrel and the high sights - I had thoughts of the high sights causing the gun to shoot low...but then I recalled the FNX Tactical I once owned not having shot low.
But the price was the most surprising of all. $539 - and it was brand new! I'd been at a store yesterday that had 2 of them, but they wanted $739.
The store even had the compact version which holds 8 rounds for just $10 more.
Persistence doesn't always pay off, but it does sometimes! Can't wait to try it out!
