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.
