Smith and Wesson M&P Pistol in .22lr
Smith and Wesson are finally bringing in their M&P handgun models over to the .22 LR, letting shooters enjoy the M&P at the range without the pain on their wallet. Ammo prices have at least steadied after the big 08′ scare, but a few hours at the range can still cost over $100 dollars even when shooting 9mm. I’m sure there are plenty of shooters wanting the M&P pistol in .22 LR, hence why Smith and Wesson will be releasing it.
I’ve seen the listing for the M&P .22 on a few online gun shops with a price around the $400 dollar mark, which is only about $100 bucks less than what an M&P 9 would cost, but the savings in ammo will quickly make up for it. I personally love the M&Ps that I own, and if the ergonomics are identical (which they seem to be) on the .22LR, I’ll probably be picking one of these up as well. Look for a review as soon as they come out here on Gunblog.com
