    Has anybody seen the new S&W M&P?

    I just checked out the new smith&wesson M&P at www.smith-wesson.com. It must be the ugliest piece of hardware I have ever seen. Who runs their design team? It looks like a walther P99 on acid. Any test data out there yet?

    Have you ever seen a Glock?

    Not really all that new at all but the gun fits a need in the LEO market and to be honest they are pretty dang good guns with alot of very good reviews and the price is right. Kimber has a new version out of the MP I think it is the KDP to also play ball in the market as well.

    Yep - bit like my SW99 and - not pretty. No feedback on that yet that I recall.

    I will say tho - surprisingly perhaps - I have a SW99 compact and tho it is fugly - heck - it shoots and carries just great! Ergonomics are odd and hardly ideal but - do not dismiss it!

    I fondled one at this year's SHOT Show....it felt very comfortable in my hand; the trigger pulls on the displayed guns were also very nice.

    I own one. I think it is a fine looking gun. The slide has good looking lines, the adjustable grip has "texture" giving superior grip, a masculine looking external extractor that could pick a giant's nose, aggressive but attractive rear slide treatment for cycling that looks like waves. I think the tac rail looks a tad toothy. what is the nicest thing about the pistol is the way it makes a target look. In the right hand, that thing could pound nails.

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I saw one and did not think it looked worse than most other semiauto black plastic pistols. I think Glocks are uglier, but they shoot beautifully.

    Am I Totally Weird ?

    Don't Answer That...you'll get banned.

    I honestly like the way it looks.
    I am not trying to be contrary either.
    I remember (way back when) when multiple Gun Writers said that the original SIG P220 was an extremely UGLY pistol. I thought it looked beautiful.
    On the S&W Military/Police ~ Form seems to follow function.
    I like it.
    With a slightly more "Artsy" Photograph ~ To me it looks sort of SIGesque mated with Minor Glock. OK & maybe a tiny touch of Walther in there.
    I would buy one.

    Ergonomically, I think they feel much better than the Glocks and XDs.

    I have handled one in the store. The trigger pull is nice, the features are all there, but the price is a little high. It doesn't pull me either way. Kimber has one that looks exactly like it. The PD I think it is called.
