hi Ozzman,If I remember correctly Academy on Joe Battle had them back in December. I had a chance to hold one but I didn't buy it. I also haven't been there in a while but I am pretty sure you can have one shipped there if they don't have them in stock. Give them a call first.
I just looked at their website and confirmed that they do sell them.
I usually do the "buy online/local FFL guy" thing also. However, I do get other things at Academy, mainly ammo (their "Monarch" house brand is often a good deal if you want "generic" ammo, but I've also gotten specialty stuff (high-performance self-defense HP ammo) like American Gunner there, too.The local stores have to add on profit margin. I usually try to see if I can get my hands on a gun to get the feel of it then shop online and have it shipped to my FFL. I usually save money that way. Just another option.
