    Finally got to shoot it.

    Finally two, maybe three weeks after bringing it home I got to shoot my .40 M&P.

    I pulled a few hours Auxiliary Police duty and one of the firearms instructors was shift supervisor. That means if no calls Range time.

    At about 17 yards out I got some decent grouping considering how long its been since Ive shot at all and considering my first time with the M&P no props to lean on just free standing.
    Those 15 round mags are great. I bought an extra one so I can have two extras on the duty belt.

    Of course I let the other guys try it out too. All positive comments. One other officer liked it so much he said hes gonna see if the local gunshop I got mine from will take his present pistol in for trade\credit toward his purchasing an M&P for himself.

    Now Im tempted to let my S&W CS45 go (sell it) to get the M&P Compact 40.

    Everyone who shot it kept on about how good it was.

    Just thought Id pass this on.

    Two to three weeks?? Sheer torture. It's hard for me to wait a few days.

    I'm glad the M&P worked out for you.

    Great!

    I am certainly hearing more and more good about the M&P series.

    I was fully prepaired to dislike them ( thinking they were a repacked sigma ) untill i got a chance to handle them . I came away super impressed. There is no dobut in my mind that if i carryed a double stack for ccw that would be it . I even hit my smith rep up for a single stack ccw versoin , but i sincerely dobut anything will come of it lol .
