Looking forward to a range report on that. I'll have to check it out. Seems like it has similar specs to the Glock G45. I like my G45, but I'm not adverse to considering the M&P.Coming soon to an IWB holster by my side... I'm planning to have this at the center of my carry rotation. (And keep that rotation very limited.) M&P9 Compact with 4" barrel and 15+1=16 rounds. The true next Gen 19.
I've been carrying and shooting the M&P40 Compact v.1 since the pistol was first released (a long time ago!) and both it and a 9mm version have proved themselves over and over. They have 3.5" barrels, and I've decided I would like the upgraded 4" version 2.0 even more... so that leads me to this, M&P9 2.0 Compact with 4" barrel. Longer sighting radius, higher velocities, and 4" is easy for me to CCW. Looking forward to many happy range outings with this pistol.
