    M&P 45

    I would like to hear everyone's opinion that has one or has owned one , likes & dislikes , full size or compact . I was offered a full size for $400 but have only shot a 40 s&w in this gun . So any input will be appreciated . Oh the best thing about this one is it has no mag safety like so many Smith's have . I'm not a cop so no need for that mag safety .

    Good price from what I've seen around here.

    It is an M&P. Good gun. Good deal.

    I've had the full-sized M&P45 for roughly a year now and all I can say is "WOW"! The gun has been completely reliable using various types and brands of ammo and is extremely accurate. I like the fact it comes with three backstraps so you can "customize" the pistol to your hand. I can't say enough positive things about this gun and the general consensus on various gun forums mirrors my experience. Here's a good article from Hilton Yam testing three polymer guns, one which is the M&P45:

    For $400 bucks, I'd be on it like white on rice! Here's mine with the MTAC holster:

    My friend has one...his fiance bought for him for Christmas. He loves it. But he also has a G21SF for HD with two thirty round mags and a Glock factory light/laser mounted. I doubt you'll be disappointed and 400 is a great deal.

    I carry a M&Pc 45 The weapon shoots and handles well,I have had 0 problems out of the box and I shoot everything from Lead reloads to Federal HST SD ammo.It's a little lighter than my compact 1911 and delivers the same punch.I bought mine new from Buds for $499 shipped and has no xtra retarded safety other than the trigger and safe weapon handling

    I have a 9mm full sized M&P and it is a very reliable weapon that eats any ammo you can feed into it. I have heard from owners that the .45 is pretty much the same way.

    I had a M&P45 full-size and carried it a number of times. It was 100% reliable and I kept it full of Federal HST. I ended up selling it and bought another 1911.

    It was in near perfect condition and I sold it for $500. I've been thinking about buying another one just to have because I liked it so much and it shot very soft.

    I'd go for it!

    I own both an M&P 45fs and an M&P 45c. I enjoy shooting them both. I like shooting the 45c a little better. I EDC the 45fs because Crimson Trace does not yet make a LaserGrips for the 45c.
