    Bought M&P 40c today

    After much research, I bought a M&P 40c today. Fired the Glock 23, & 27, the full-size M&P 40, the Sig P229, a used Beretta 96D, and a few others over the last few months. I intend it to be my EDC, after I practice with it quite a bit.

    I am adding to a very small stable: it's only my 3rd handgun. The other 2 are SW 3913 (9mm) and Ruger GP100 4" (.357).

    Brand new, price was $553.76 including taxes, 2 magazines, etc.

    I probably could have gotten it cheaper online or used, I suppose, but what the heck.

    Next I want to get some flavor of 1911...probably not for carry, but just, well, because.

    If 3 guns equal a stable,I must have a Harem,I love the M&P pistols they have 3 different palm swells and fit pretty good.I bought my daughter a M&P 9c,and I got a 45c that my wife really likes a lot.

    I'm sure you will be pleased. My 40c is several years old, carried almost daily and is a sweet, accurate shooter.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Love my M&P

    I have an M&P 40c and I love it. Feeds everything, is more accurate than I am and is easy to conceal. Enjoy!!

    yeah I know, I know. I thought it even as I typed the message, but after being laid off for 2 years, I have a LOT of "catching up" to do. A digital camera is far down the list at the moment. Let's see, still need a new lawnmower, both cars are on their last legs, Catholic school tuition to pay for the kids (1 in 4th grade, 1 in 10th grade), been running a defiicit at the karate school that my wife and I run (not my "day job"), had to buy a bunch of clothes for work...you get the, heh, picture.

    My job gave me a Blackberry but I am still hesitant to use it except for business, so I can't really use that for the pics either, just yet anyway.

    I threw $50 or $100 into the "cookie jar" every paycheck until I could buy the Smith (are my priorities in order? Sure!). Probably paid more for it than I should have, but I have a loyal feeling towards the particular retailer - he helped me out a few times while I was laid off - http://www.westborngunshop.com/ (but it still toasts my cookies a little bit to see the same gun for almost $100 less online...)

    But honestly, the M&P is as stock as you can get, it's not tricked out or anything, it's the standard M&P40c, no external safety. So I could cheat and insert a pic from online somewheres, but what's the point in that? When I do get a camera, I'll post some pics of my, okay, "mini-stable."

    Don't worry about the pics. We know what a M&P looks like. Spend money on ammo--you'll enjoy it more than a silly photo.
