It’s summer and that means 3 things: vacations, sunburns, and awesome gun deals? It is not unheard of to see a major firearms company “give back” with a rebate or incentive program, but with more companies doing it, we're all more excited about these slick gun deals!
All of a sudden, top gun manufacturers are offering online and mail-in rebates that make these gun deals look too good to be true. Can you really own a 9mm Smith & Wesson Shield for under $250? Yes, you can! It seems to me that Smith and Wesson have decided to go “all in” with their rebate strategy that started back in April of this year. They lowered their prices significantly for concealed carry handguns. So now, let's check out what the available gun deals are this summer and how can you benefit from them:

2. SMITH and WESSON
Mike of Sunrise Tactical in Coral Spring, Florida, shared with us: “The Smith and Wesson rebate alone increased store traffic and in-store sales. We sold many of them to first-time gun owners who had researched them online. They said the Smith and Wesson price rebate was the main reason that they were buying now.”
The rebate states, “Purchase any NEW qualifying* M&P® Full Size, M&P® Compact, or M&P SHIELD® Pistol and get 2 magazines, 2 boxes of ammo and a mag charger.
