    I really like the looks of this gun. I have a M&P 40c that has been perfect, but there seemed to be a lot of issues (i.e. mag drop, etc.) with the compacts when first released. This one is definitely on my "to buy" list, but I plan on holding off a while to observe.

    Can not wait to get my hands on one! I have the 9c and 45FS and love them both.

    8+1, 26 oz., 4 inch barrel-I need one of those pretty bad. Not bad enough to swap in my M&P 9, but bad. I don't think Smith will be able to make those fast enough.

    My fifty year old .45 Colt LW Commander will hold 8+1, 28 ounces, four inch barrel, flat and familar, reliable and accurate, no plastic. I can make do with the two extra ounces of weight.

    Smith is really making it tough for this Glock guy to stay loyal. Must resist!

    Really, I've been looking at the M&P9c quite a bit lately. A guy I know got a full size .45 and I really like it too.

    Get both, you won't regret it.

    I bought the M&P .45 first and love it. Then bought a used M&P 9c that had a gunsmith smooth out the trigger . . . 4.5-5# measured and it just rips one big hole in the center of the target, sits nice and comfy in a pancake holster and is a great CCW gun.

    Do the compacts have the interchangeable back straps?

    Thumbs up

    Everyone that fires my M&P 40 want's to trade their Glocks in on one!
    It probably is the most accurate production semi that I have ever used........
    I just have to get the compact now!

    mmargotta, I actually dumped my MP for a Glock and now I just got another Glock. While the new MP45c looks appealing, it will take time to earn a Glock like reliabilty. Not to say it's not a great new firearm...but lets see. + I like my 10 rounders in the G30.
