    Calling all M&P owners...

    I have a bonus coming from work and have decided to put part of it to an M&P. The rest is going into savings. I am considering an M&P 9 or an M&P 40. I know it's a newer design, but want to give it a chance. Feel free to offer advice.

    My M&P9c has been my first, and so far, only pistol. I love it and carry it everywhere I legally can. It's a pleasure to shoot and I only had one very minor FTE within the first 10 rounds. Since then I've put around 700 rounds down range without any issues.

    If you love accuracy and reliability, invest in an M&P. I don't shoot anything smaller than .357 sig, to which, for the price of a gun barrel, an M&P .40 is capable of converting without regard to higher pressures of the .357. I recommend the compact model.

    I have the M&P9c and its my EDC. I love the fit in my hand and hasn't failed me yet, no failures in 600 rounds so far. It fit my hand better than anything else on the market, i have small but thick hands and the small back strap on it fits so nice in my hand. That adjustability is a very nice feature, easy to fit. Take down on it is easy as well no additional tools required to field strip it. Now its offered with a safety, so there should be a version to appeal to everyone. Oh yea, and its fun to shoot :) Good luck.

    I have had the M&P9 for about six months and have put around 2000 rounds thru it. I also recently purchased the M&P45. They both feel great ergonomically and are a pleasure to shoot. It is easy to clean and my groups keep getting tighter the more I shoot it. I have never had any FTF or FTE problems with it using a variety of different loads. It conceals well with a IWB holster and a shirt hanging out. I prefer the feel of it to a Glock 17 I recently had a chance to shoot. The tritium night sights cost a bit more but now I am glad I have them especially on a dark indoor range. Good luck with your choice.

    Don't do it! They are not in the same league as the pistols they compete against in the same price points. Get a reliable Glock or even a Walther, Sig or Steyr.

    Just picked up my M&P 40 from my FFL this morning, and I am looking at it as we 'speak'. It has a wonderful feel in my hand; I bought it with Crimson Trace grips installed. I absolutely CAN'T wait until Friday afternoon to hit the range and fire off a bunch of rounds! I have stripped it down and reassembled in a matter of seconds. The ambidextrous slide release is very well placed, and the interchangable grips work like a charm. This will be fun to shoot!

    M&P 40c and 9mm Pro --- both are awesome firearms ... no problems whatsoever. The 40c is my carry gun, and the 9mm is for match shooting. I have a 9mm drop-in barrel for the 40c, and it works flawlessly -- two weapons for a lot less than the cost of two weapons. I highly recommend the M&P line.

    Where in the world are you coming from with this?

    In what world do you live in that you have heard that the M&P line is not a quality line???

    My high dollar 1911 is sitting at the factory for the second time to "fix" the FTE issues...yet my M&P .45c sits on my belt as it has for a long time with! With 0 issues whatsoever with any one of the 5 M&Ps that I have owned, I would say that they are a high quality weapon and first rate for the price.

    Don't get me wrong here, the M&P is not the end all of hand guns and I am not saying that they are the absolute best (WAY to objective of a subject there). I am however saying that some people need to get off their high horse and deal in reality....there are a lot of good guns out there and they are not all made by your "favorite" manufacturer!

    Sorry, I just get sick of the negative comments with NO constructive ingrediants whatsoever!

    To the OP...well I will start over...

    ...Sorry about that folks...I do feel better though. I can only take so much.

    I think that either the 9 or .40 are fine choices. I PERSONALLY prefer the 9 as I feel the recoil is better and the ballistics are not as deep as a .40.

    9mm would be my choice out of the two. Cheapest to shoot at the range and get some good +P for carry and you have a great combo...then again it is not me is it! (that being said, it is not me and I carry a .45 but there are time that I rely on my 38 special for duty when the utmost of discression is needed).

    I have the M&P40, M&P9c and the M&P45 and each one has been flawless. I have put about 800-900 rounds each and not a problem. I carry the 9c most of the time, and the 45 is my night stand safety net. You can't go wrong with either one.

    I have two, both a FS and compact 9. I had a Kahr PM9, but traded it off on the compact M&P since I liked the FS so much.
