My FFL has an M&P Compact in 9mm (it'll be mine tomorrow though).

I'll have had my M&P .40 for one year on July 13th. It is an accurate, reliable weapon. It fits my hand perfectly. I don't know how many rounds I've got through it, but I know I'm over 3,000. Once the mags got broken in (in total, about 30 rounds each), I have never had any problems with it. It is currently sitting on my hip full of 180Gr Golden Sabers.
I trust my life to it. What more can I say?

I've got quite a few Smith & Wesson M&P's. All made before 1951.

I got the 9mm full size.
I'll be qualifying next week with it.

Full size M&P 9mm here. I've only had it a short time but I already love it.

Got the M&P45 a week ago and like it so far. Only shot maybe 150 rounds through it yet, more to come once I come up with a decent handload.
Carries very well IWB, 10+1 of .45ACP in a package that feels like my single stack SW 3906 (8+1 of 9mm) when it's holstered. I anticipate making this my carry gun once I shoot a few hundred rounds through it and finish getting used to it. That S&W promo they're running until mid-July for 2 free magazines sweetens the pot some, too.

I have two M&Ps, one fullsize and one compact, both 9mm. I was at a dealer the one day with no intention of buying anything, handled a fullsize, and made an impulse purchase. I'm sure I'm not the only person to ever do that.
After many rounds down range, I really warmed up to the M&P and went ahead and added a compact to the collection.

9c here. Had it about 2 months.
Kept trying to decide between it and the XD.
Once I held it, the decision was made. Love the gun.

I am like eagle5. I went into the gun store just to look at guns. I had not even heard much about the M&P pistols yet. I saw one and asked to look at it. Once I held it, I was hooked. I then went home and researched the gun and found a lot of favorable press about it.

S&W has outstanding CS, so I saw absolutely no reason not to trade. I have not regretted it and would do it again.

I bought a M&P in 9mm for my wife. My brother couldn't decide if he wanted to buy one or not. So she lent it to him to take the Advance Carry Class at Valhalla. I watched him shoot 1,000+ rounds over three days without a single hiccup. In my opinion Smith has a real winner on its hands. You can't go wrong buying one!!
