Very nice! I'd really like to have an M&P .40 compact, and also an M&P fullsize .40 or .45. Its too bad they're just far enough down on my "want list" that it will probably be a long while before I ever own one but I've been very impressed with the M&P guns. My ONLY complaint is that I wish the trigger reset was a little more discernable - otherwise its a darn good gun but like all things nothing a little training (or an apex trigger) can't solve. But the ergos, performance, price are all really good - and hey its an american made gun! A good contender in my book.
I have a G19 as my EDC. My dad has a M&P9, i liked it so much, i got the .40 for myself. It will be the bedside gun. Trigger reset is nonexistant. For now, I'll get some time in with it, if necessary I'll get the apex kit.
Sharp lookin' S&W, congrats!

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
Good choice. My M&P 40 full size and compact are great guns and love carrying and shooting them.

You can pick up a drop in 357Sig barrel and have two calibers in one gun. I have the same firearm and I am very satisfied with the M&P platform.

Congrats! Enjoy it!
I was juggling the M&P 40 against a Glock 22 for a while. Both good guns, both take conversion barrels, both have interchangeable backstraps for better fit, etc. I prefer the distinctive trigger reset on the G22, but that wouldn't have been a deciding factor. In the end, the economy stepped in and slapped me with a hard dose of reality. Neither gun is not in the picture for a while.
