My New Smith & Wesson

Today was a great day for gun ownership in this country. I purchased the brand new Smith and Wesson M&P .40. A gripping firearm that, if pointed at you, would be put the shit in your pants in half a second.

The M&P 40


And very soon I will qualify with this bad boy. I qualified with 100s for the 357 and just yesterday with a 45 semi-auto. But now I have, in my possession, the Military and Police .40 and will likely not want to shoot anything else; at least for a while.
