I've got an M&P40, had it couple months and I love it. Is there anybody that got one when they first came out (around '05) that still has and uses it? Thousands of rounds later have you had to have it serviced or does it keep on going like it's supposed to? I guess I'd like to know if after years of service is it still giving the Glocks a run for their money?
Note to the Glock cult: I also own a Glock and It's great, this isn't another M&P vs Glock thing

Had a M&P 9c and 45c for several years with no problems

I have an '07 M&P 40 that has never failed to make boom when asked. But my son is a Texas Lawman whose agency adopted the M&P 40 in '06 and carried until '10. He shoots the required range qualifications plus with the family and teaches firearms at their academy . No hick-ups and no major problems with the 250+ LEOs in the system. They have recently moved to Glock 22's and he says it is fine, but would chose the S&W first. You shoots what the bosses issue you.
45fs since 2006. EDC. Fixed a horrible 13# trigger and good to go.
The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
My issued duty weapon is an M&P40 and was on the range for the first time with it yesterday. Shoots nice, good ergonomics, all around nice gun, don't see how you could go wrong with one.

I have three of them and they are boring reliable. Not a hiccup.
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
I have a M&P .40 but to be honest haven't shot it enough to even have it broke in yet.
.357 sig compact with over 2500 and a new full size .45 with 800 rounds through it. both are flawless, except for having to dap the front sight with white paint on occasion.
A friend has been shooting one in IDPA since they came out. No major issues, no failures--I'm impressed, and that's saying something. I am NOT a fan of S&W autos.

I've got a 9fs,9c,45fs and had a 45c (will get another). They have all been great with no issues -other than they like to use up a a lot of ammo at the range.
I have had my M&P357Sig/40S&W for approximately two years now and have had not one hiccup shooting either caliber. The gun was originally purchased as a 357Sig but I also purchased a 40S&W barrel so I could shoot both calibers with one handgun. No complaints at all.
