Hey r/guns subreddit, I am just making this post to see if this is a valid deal of a firearm. Seller says he’s used less than 1000 rounds however, he can’t say for the person or people before him (I assume after it became a retired PD firearm he was the one to purchase it first, will get more info on that). Comes with the firearm (S and W m and p .40) and one standard 15 round mag and four 30 rounds mags. He’s asking for 575. I was thinking perhaps negotiating 500, however, would that be a good deal? This would be my first handgun and this is a private sale (completely legal in my state) so I am limited to what I can buy. I do want to stay in the “private deal” atmosphere just due to the fact that I am under 21 but older than 18 (again, private sale is completely legal in my state as long as one is 18 and up). Obviously, if it is a good deal I’d like to check it out for myself in person to see the condition of the gun. He says its in good condition. For those who would recommend testing fire arms at the range, I would, but I can’t due to age. Regardless, how much would you guys shell out if you were in my situation? Is this a good deal? Is smith and Wesson a reputable brand? Why do people shit on S and W? Thanks.
