That's why I'll never own a S&W handgun or any other piece of junk they make.
Go with a GLOCK!
Oh, and before you all jump all over me, I spent 18 years as a police officer / manager and firearms instructor and I speak from experience.
Smith & Wesson make poor quality weapons and you can buy a better weapon for less. You're paying for a name.
There is a reason that more LEO's carry a GLOCK than any other weapon out there. There is also a reason why every manufacturer out there has produced their own poor version of the "glock" in the last several years.
I am MAN/BEAR/PIG! Half Man, Half Bear, Half Pig!
