My M&P 45C finially came in yesterday. I got a chance to run a few rounds through it after work. It shoots great and has a great fit. I am still in the air between the small and medium back strap. My next two purchases are holster and night sights.

Great choice. I picked up an M&P 9C a couple of months ago. Absolutely love it. Ordered the Crossbreed holster for it. Took 7+ weeks to come in but got it yesterday and love it. Definitely worth the wait. Congrats on the new addition to the family! :smile:

Great looking pistol! Friend just bought a M&P 40c today. Feels very god in the hands. I bet the 45 ACP will be a great shooter.

I got a 45 C about six months ago. It's a great gun and a very smooth shooter. The small backstrap fits me the best. What kind of holster are you thinking about?

Welcome to the club... I picked mine up a couple of months ago. Recently installed the Apex Hard Sear and Apex Ultimate Striker Block, which gave a modest improvement in trigger pull. Also picked up some 10-round mags and mag extension sleeves. Most recent, and probably the most effective improvement came in the form of Talon grips to give the gun some decent adhesion to the hand. My only complaint about all of my M&P pistols is that the grips are too slippery in the hand. The Talon grips correct this deficiency effectively, quickly, and economically.

Talon Grips For Smith and Wesson

Excellent choice in a compact .45!

Congrats on your new aquisition. The 45c is a very smooth shooter and after a few hundred rounds the trigger will smooth out nicely.

I ordered my M&P9c earlier this week. I'm not a patient person so the wait will be hard. I already ordered two holsters for it so I won't have to wait for the holsters once I get my gun. I ordered one from Old Faithful and one from High Noon. Two very different styles so I can see which I like better. Or if one is better for different situations.

But way looking forward to getting my gun. Now I am on a search for ammo. It would be a shame to get the gun and not be able to "play" with it.

These triggers are not good out of the box but they get decent after shooting. I think too many folks give up on the gun or rush to the Apex. They really do improve with use and from what I've seen the newer ones have a better reset.

Enjoy. I keep thinking of getting a 45 compact for no good reason.

I keep going back and forth between the M&P 45c and Glock 30 SF(or Gen4 Glock 30).

It would make sense to go with the M&P being that I carry my M&P 9c 90% of the time, however I'm having trouble finding an M&P 45c anywhere...that and living in California where I would have to purchase via the Single Shot Exemption and finding an out of state FFL who will ship here :(.


Enjoy your new pistol!

I have a M&P45C and a Glock 30. Both great guns, but I definitely much prefer the G30. The G30 is, in my view, the finest carry 45 on the planet. (Yes, I'm a major 1911 lover as I say that.)

congratulations! I carry my M&P 9C most of the time and It's been flawless with everything I've run through it.

I'd be interested to know in how you carry the G30? IWB or OWB? Do you find the G30 to carry as well as the M&P?

The G30 carries great, as does the M&P45C. I have a few M&Ps and while the grip is nicely sculpted, I find that they slip around in my hand during recoil. This was quickly remedied with the Talon traction grip. Now the M&P sticks like glue in my hand. The Glock's squarish grip feels great in my hand and due to the shape (not as sculpted) it stays put in the hand better while firing. But I've decided to go with Talon traction grip on my Glocks as well. (Except the G17RTF, of course! ;) )

Looks good! I plan on carrying at the 4 o' clock position in a Crossbreed Supertuck. My only concern was that I have medium-small sized hands and in shooting the G30 SF the webbing of my hand was sore :confused:. I don't have this problem with my 1911....so if the Gen 4 G30 grip is slightly smaller than the G30 SF that may be the route to go.


Thanks again for the pics!

I have both an M&P 45c and a 9c. I've found no appreciable difference between the feel of the small and medium backstraps, so I went with the mediums stippled by A2 Stippling ( Products - A2 Stippling ) in the #8 (large dot) style, along with extended magazine floorplates and takedown tools in the same style. Great gripability and they look great, too.
