    Has anyone had an M&P since they came out? How'd it hold up?

    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

    I sold my M&P 40c after the striker assembly broke. That's my only experience. I am not saying that is the norm, just that it's my personal experience.

    Edit - Almost forgot - I also had a 45c which was a great gun.

    2nd most used pistol (after Glock) at the 2010 IDPA National Championships Match. 56 total were used. A pretty solid endorsement I think.

    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.

    I think that was the main problem with the 1st runs with the M&Ps

    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 a M&P .40 but to be honest haven't shot it enough to even have it broke in yet.

    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.
