    Picked up a never been fired Smith & Wesson M&P22 Compact.
    Older gentleman purchased for his 73 year old wife 2 months ago.
    Her arthritis prevented her from racking the slide.
    Basically, new in box with all original paperwork and 2 mags.
    The original pic he sent me. I'll get more later.

    I don't own a gun, never thought about owning a gun. I don't know anybody that does own a gun..but I can tell this..if I lived in Nevada I'd own a gun too. Because there are people like you around.

    Like I said JM2cW

    Nice looking little pea shooter. I really like the M&P line. I carry a M&P shield 9mm.

    phat80... I got my first real gun when I was 12. I been around guns all of my life and out of the people I know, the ones with guns out weighs the ones w/o. Not only is it protection, it's also a fun hobby/sport

    That's actually a very good platform for someone who's challenged in the hand grip department - when used properly. She should never have to rack the slide to get the first shot off. With all the internal safeties and even with a round in the chamber, that gun will not discharge until the trigger is pulled. Even then, it has to be an intentional pull with the break over trigger.

    You made a good buy, I'm envious.

    the fact that YOU choose to not be armed is your choice. We can only control our OWN actions.... but one would be sadly mistaken to think I am not prepared to control any and all actions directed AT ME!. ;)

    We have strict Gun Laws here in Canada and the crime rate is low.
