    Talking New Carry Gun!!!

    After doing some research and getting a chance to rent and shoot an M&P 45c, I bought one yesterday to use as my new carry gun. I've been carrying an XD40sc for a few years, which has been a good gun, but I've been drooling over the M&P's since they came out. I haven't had a chance to shoot mine yet, but that's in the plans later this week. Here's a little gun porn for you all to enjoy.

    Congrats on the M&P45c! Nice pics of it.

    I have a M&P40c and really like it (great carry piece). I have been toying with the idea of getting a M&P45c, to give my G30 a run for its money.

    Sweet. I picked up an M&P40C two weeks ago and my bro just got a M&P9C. I'm carrying a P239 right now, but as soon as my new holster shows up in a couple days I'll put the M&P through the paces.

    I shot them both at the range a week ago. The M&P put a blister on my right thumb after 50 rounds and didn't feel as good as my 239, but it was accurate and still fun to shoot. Looking forward to carrying it.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Good for you!
    I'm sitting on the fence between the G22 and the M&P 40 myself. They both pretty equally fill my requirements so it's probably coming down to a coin toss.

    I'll see what I can do. I won't have time to get to it tonight as I'm off to work in a little bit, but maybe tomorrow.
