This year I was authorized by the wife to buy one new gun. After weeks of deliberation I chose an M&P 9c. I have plenty of CCW .40s and a few other calibers but no 9mm. I plan on loading it up with 124gr Speer GD. This is supposed to be her gun, but until CCW passes in WI, it will be one of my off-duty pieces. Funny thing is I looked at Kahrs, G26s, etc, etc. However every time I went to the toy store and picked this little gem up, it just seemed so right. There are plenty of threads about the M&P already, just wanted to share my experiences. Just gotta find a decent IWB and OWB holster for it, and I'll be all set.

I have one on order myself and hope to have it by the weekend. I think it will be a nice companion to my SR9c. I'll probably go to Side Guard for my holsters, I really like The Slide I bought for the Ruger. Congrats and enjoy!

Excellent choice! You will grow to love your M&P9c. I liked mine so much that I bought it's big brother.
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
Congrats on your M&P! I have 2 M&P 9c pistols, and I absolutely love them. Do yourself a favor and check out the Apex Tactical DCAEK trigger kit, that makes the M&P my favorite pistol that I have ever carried.

Love those M&P's! Can't speak to the compact version specifically, but my wife and I have three M&P9 FS's between us. Never a hiccup, they just run!
+1 on claybreaker0's recommendation about Apex Tactical's DCAEK, it is a huge improvement over the factory trigger.

A man carrying a M&P 9c is well armed:
The main drawback to buying this pistol is that it often leads to eventually buying one of the larger M&P pistols as well:
What! You mean you're going to have more than one caliber ammo on hand?

Oh my! that stippling job is awesome, who did it?

The amazing thing about mine is that it's beat to heck, the finish is at least five different colors between the initial off-black and nearly bare steel, but it shoots like a dream, has never malfunctioned, and every time I think about getting another gun, I seem to end up coming back to my M&P9c.
Congrats. Love my M&P, hope you will too.
