    Does anyone carry a full size M&P?

    Been looking at several pistols and my LGS has a full size M&P I can get at a good price. Do any of you carry one and how do you like it?

    The 40 FS is my EDC and I have no problems with it.
    Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?

    Used to, either a 9 or a 357 SIG. They carry fine.

    Now I carry a Glock 31 a lot, and will start with a 22. More or less the same size as an M&P. No problems.

    With the right holster and a good belt, I expect I could hide a Smith 29.

    Have been carrying one on a near daily basis for the last 3-years. It's replaced my Glock 23.
    More ergonomic in my hands and reliable as a rock.

    I have a s&w sigma I want to upgrade from. They are both very close in size so I figured they would carry the same. Heard nothing but good things about the M&P.

    I used to carry a full size M&P45. It was awesome and extremely accurate. But I was finding the handle sticking out when carrying so I went to the 40c and have been satisfied with it.

    Saw on Sparks' Facebook page (they sometimes have stuff for sale) that one of those maniacs had built an SSII for a Smith 500.

    That was one big holster.

    Full size M&P 9mm. Excellent gun. Carries well. Conceals well.

    I use a Raven Concealment and convert it back and forth from OWB and IWB. I also carry it with a Remora, a SHTF Gear IWB, and a Blade Tec OWB (which came with the gun). All are excellent holsters.

    Looking to get a Brommeland or maybe a Pure Custom for it.

    If you are waiting to hear bad things about the M&P series, you'll be here awhile.

    Not too much to complain about.

    In colder weather (doesn't happen much in FL) I carry a full size M&P .45. Warmer months M&P 9c either Iwb or owb, depends on my mood lol.

    My son's duty weapon is M&P 40 & he carries it off duty alternately with his Glock 23 & 21 with no problems at all. With a little creativity & think any gun can be concealed.

    M&P pistols are outstanding. I have carried the 9 and 45 quite often, but do prefer a 9c. Lately my G19 Gen 4 has been getting must of the carry action as it's winter.
