Got to shoot it for the first time on Saturday. Probably one of the first ones in California.











Next to my Glock 36 and Beretta 92FS







This is funny. Notice the round indicators on the mag!!! LOLOLOL

Those mags do look sorta crappy...I had heard some other posters describe them, but had yet to see them. Why aren't they nice blued ones with good welds like the 9/40's?

I also tried the 45 in some of the holster I have for my M&P40....

It fits perfectly in my Tucker "The Answer" IWB rig, and feels no bigger than the 40 when carried in it.



It WILL NOT fit the Safariland model 6280 w/light attached that I have for my duty holster. The Safariland model 6351 (ALS) that I have, may work with a little modification to the holster, but not "as is".

Great Pictures.



Does anyone else here get the idea that the 45 was planned from the very beginning and they have just now got around to it.



Look at the mag well the side toward the rear of the grip. Looks like they just made the area for the mag bigger. Real good forward thinking.

I can't tell if it's for that particular reason... or just because they could make it thinner..because of where that lanyard loop is??...

Speaking of which, I notice the .40 pictured does not have one..or at least I can't see it from those photos..

Question: Does this lend any credence to the theory that the M&P in .45 was originally designed for the JCP project?

I've heard it discussed here, but have not heard or seen any hard evidence that it was... :?
