S&W M&Ps have proven to be an extremely reliable sidearm.

Might as well get one of these now, before the end of the next four years, we'll all have them.

ah, yes. M&P's....if they ever outlaw all those evil Glocks, M&P's will do nicely.
Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
I Have an M&P45c let a friend shoot it at the range as I was teaching him to shoot and the different types of guns/trigger systems etc.He shot a mag of my reloads thru it and scored well,looked at me and said wow that's got a really nice trigger

I'm ready for a change myself mostly just for the heckovit in combination with the fact that there is one "out there" that I really have my eye on.
BUT, that firearm that I am really interested in has yet to end up on a doggone dealer shelf so that I can actually handle it before I plunk down a wad for it.
The handgun that I really want is the DETONICS MTX .45acp.
Common sense is telling me I should probably wait a bit longer though ~ before I put my John Hancock on their waiting list.
And then I would need (at least) 5 magazines right off the bat & it only ships w/ one. I don't know what magazine availability is like. I can build my own holster.
Truthfully I have not been more excited about any handgun in years.
If I could design/build a handgun in my dreams and have it pop out from under my pillow in the morning it would be really super close to the MTX.
I need to call DETONICS and ask some serious questions very soon.

M&P? I guess Sixto is mortal after all.

M&P? I had a M&P 9c and quickly ditched it, I can not get warmed up to a polymer/striker fired pistol, wish I could, the weight savings would be nice. For ME, Sigs are it. Although I'm gonna revisit the M&P 9 Pro C.O.R.E when it comes out.
I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".
I've got no problem with the pistol itself, just S&W lack of coming up with their own stuff.
Went shooting with a friend a few weeks ago and shot his M&P, and I liked the gun, it shot well. I can see why some would prefer it over the Glock. Just not me.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
So... wait... we went through all that, for an M&P?
I feel cheated.
