Started to ask this yesterday, but the store changed the deal and I didn't have to deal with it. Anyways, I was looking at the M&P compact in 9mm and found one for an outstanding price, however it had a dark earth colored frame. Not something I'd buy on purpose, but the gun was priced NIB at $409 with free shipping. They also had the black framed model for $453. Would you consider buying an off color for a $42 savings? Before I could make the decision, the store raised the price to $439 making my decision much easier. However, I must say I was torn until that happened. On one hand, I planned on keeping the gun for a long time, but on the other hand, I've noticed that the beige or earth colored handguns don't seem to resell very well. I'm not sure $42 is enough savings to warrant buying a gun you might have trouble getting rid of when the time comes. I think you could easily lose more than that on a resale. Sure glad they raised the price, because I was giving it some serious consideration. I like bargains, just not quite sure this would have been one.
