Gun control is not the answer. Gun control is the question. The answer is NO.
It's a 4" barrel. It's not a gun I'm wanting to sell but neither is it summer concealment for me. It might work IWB under a Hawaiian shirt.

I currently carry a Sig Tac Ops 1911 concealed (i'm 6'1, 205 fit guy) actually pretty well, but I'm looking for something a bit smaller that still gives me 8 rnds of .45, can anyone post pics of them carrying concealed the .45 compact? Inside the waistband and paddle holster. I work EP so this will be my EP choice of weapon. Thanks fellas.
Idk why someone said the M&P is ugly.. it's not.
Friend of mine just bought a 45C. Great gun. Myself, I EDC a 9c :)
I just got a 45c about a month ago. I also ordered a Crossbreed Supertuck and Instructor belt. I did alot of research before I chose the 45c. To me it seems to be the best CCW for many reasons. S&W reliability. Great ergonomics. Affordability. Concealment. Simple design/ easy to work on. Versitility. I like that I can carry 8+1 with a short magazine or get a full size mag w/ x grip and have 10+1.
True, it isn't as sexy as a 1911, but it is a tough looking little gun. I would still like to add a Colt Defender to the arsenal when and if prices ever come back down.
Wow, 2 1/2 year thread necro...
But for the M&P 45c, it's worth it!
I love mine..... It doesn't get carried as much since I got the Shield in 40, but a great gun

What non-shooter are YOU planning on taking to the range?
Question: on the 45c, if the safety is engaged can the slide go back? Some pistols without thumb safeties have the slide move back about 1/8", say, when holstering, taking it out of battery and freezing up the trigger so that it won't fire when drawn. So you gotta push the slide back into battery with your thumb. That's the reason why I'd want a thumb safety. UTube's Hickok45 is seen doing it on the "Glocks not welcome!" video,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37EFEPBw9wQ specifically the Walther PPS.
And guess what this shooter does the second he pulls the 45c out of the holster?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVB5-jZMqz0 Yep, he pushes the slide from the back. It looks like habit, though, not an actual hang up. Do you striker fans also do it out of habit? I know that XDs and Steyrs have the same type of "problem".
And yes, I should have started a separate thread. I apologize.
I've had a 45c for about 2 months now and love it. Full size feel but compact size and 45 acp. When I'm wearing shorts and a t-shirt its usually the Shield but for most all other situations the 45c is very comfortable and concealable.

I have a 45C, and I'm wondering if I can be the only person who hates the trigger out of the box? I went for awhile without shooting it during which time I shot my Glock's, Springfield's, and Ruger. When I took the 45C out, I actually wondered at first if the trigger was broken. I installed an Apex trigger kit, and I'd say that moved it into the "almost satisfactory" category. On the plus side, the ergonomics of the gun are great, and it is a very soft shooter.
I have two M&P's., a 45C and the new M&P Core 40 with an Trijicon RMR. Both are great shooters but the Core may be the most accurate weapon I have ever shot.
