I certainly wouldn't carry it with the 14 rounder. But you could do the 10 rounder in the gun and then 2 14s in the belt. If you're reloading, you're probably in some shit anyway.

Carry the mags in what? They're about a foot long.

And I agree with the last part of your comment. Reloading would be bad.

The raleigh PD in NC use the M&P45, not sure if MS or FS, but the guys who carry the 14 round mags use open top mag pouches, they seem large but not overly cumberson. My Department still uses the Sig p229, not a bad gun but from what I have seen and shot I like the M&P a whole lot more.

10-8 performance has some base plates for the 14 rounders that are less cumbersome.

The same could be said for the magazine disconnect.

+1 for NJ, Atlantic Tactical in Somerset, NJ has great prices on M&P's.

I have carried a full size MP45 on duty for 3 or 4 years. Deputies in my agency carry personally owned sidearms. I found the MP 45 superior to my previous Glock 21 in every way except for the magazine capacity. The only problem I have ever had with the MP45 is that I had a bad magazine. I was having feeding malfunctions with only one of my magazines. As soon as I realized that it was only happening with one magazine, I visually compared it to the others I had and I could see that the feed lips were out of spec. SW replaced the magazine and now all is good. The only thing I would like to note is that if shooters are transitioning from a Glock to MP there is a chance of short stroking the trigger because of the change of reset. Curing that is a matter of training ie. letting the trigger return all the way before pressing it again.

I have carried the M&P 45 for 1.5 years now and the only negative issue I had with the gun was the trigger from the factory, it was about 9 lbs.. I sent it in for the custom shop trigger job and reliability package as I wanted the gun to remain a "factory" gun as it is a duty weapon. Our trigger pull requirement is no trigger less than 3.5 Lbs. and after the custom shop was done it dropped it from 9 lbs. to 4.5 Lbs. and the gun has run a1 in over 3000 rounds since. Every one of our officers want to switch to M&P's, we currently issue G22 and 23 but allow for personal weapons for duty with armorer and chief approval. I shoot my M&P 45 as well as I shot my Ed Brown or my Springfield Professional ...all in all a great gun for the money...but the 45 trigger pull out of the box is a no go at 9 lbs.
