    I'm not a fan of the looks of the M&P. I handled one a few weeks ago and it felt good in the hand....but a big piece similar to the size of a Beretta 92. May not be the best carry option but I'm sur quality is there being a S&W.

    ive never factored that in on my carry weapon. i want a tool that is going to function every time, thats comfortable in my hand that i can use with confidence. any weapon that will do this is absolutely beautiful.

    My LEO buddy is doing a test on the M&P. We've been burning ammo through it at local USPSA and steel matches. I believe it's over 9,000 rounds without cleaning.
    The last time I shot it, we had seven mags and were in line. Shooter would burn a mag and hand it off to the next. The best I could do was six spent shells in the air at once. Some of the faster guys could get nine in the air. The mirage at the end of 2,000 rounds (that afternoon) was so thick I could barely see the target.
    It's a good basic pistol.

    M&p

    I'm probably going to pick one up when they are MA legal (espically with the low price) - however I heard only a .40 will be coming to MA - no .357 :( and of course, an MA compliant model means an awful 10lb trigger.

    Anyways, I was wondering if these things had single or double stack mags?

    Thanks!

    With a 15+1 capacity I would assume it's double stack.

    They are double stack.

    I was training at S&W today and in speaking with one of the range officers, same guy who observed my formal test from last weeekend, he said that the 9mm and 357 are in production right now for very soon nationwide debut including MA. Additionally he said that later in the year a .45ACP will also come online with a line of compact variants in all calibers being available this time in 2007.

    i am interested in the M&P compact. Did the range officer say what the thing might look like? A little clone perhaps?

    I've been looking at these myself lately. Now if I can convince the "local" (26 miles away)shop to get one in so I can try it, I may look harder.

    I looked at the M&P while I was in a gun shop on Friday. The gunsmith there said they were a very good gun. I was, however, more interested in the new S&W M&P AR-15. Fit and finish on it looks darned good compared to some of the other models.

    I own the M&P service in 40 but have never seen the M&P AR-15. I hope to see one at the next gun show.

    No he did not say nor did I ask but I assume it'll look like the regular M&P (which already is commander length) with the typical compact style styling of the grip/frame and the slide being reduced in length by a 1/4".

    Too bad, for those us in MA where only 10round mags are OK, we'll be stuck with a big fat grip and an FS pistol with only 10rds. Of course, we get the 10lbs trigger pull as well, while everyone else gets the more reasonable 6-7.

    My mother-in-law got a M&P40 a couple of weeks ago. (I wanted her to wait for the 9mm...) I've about 5 mags thru it.

    I like it.
    IMHO trigger is a little better than a glocks.
    Take down is kind of weird, because the engineered it so you can take it down with out pulling the tigger. You lock the slide back, then use the integral tool to push down little lever inside the grip, which diconects the sear.

    I don't like the mag safe. I wonder how easy it is to disable it?
