I have never owned a Smith and Wesson product but that will probably change this year. The new M&P9 2.0 sure looks good. I also might have to buy a new Robins Egg (Tiffany Blue) M&P15-22 for my girl friend, after all Tiffany Blue is her favorite color and I can use all the help I can get to get her to the range.
