Two Months Ago I only had one, Now 5

Guy's/Gal's
I use to be content with my Glock 43 and my Glock 26 (great guns). That was until I was at the LGS and saw a 9mm PC Shield and had to have it. Then the Shield 45 came out and I had to have that. Sold both my Glock's, in-fact all three of my Glock's including my 30S. I then ordered a M&P9L Pro-Series to go with my M&P9C that I already had. I picked up the Pro-Series 9L today and Love it. Trigger is awesome and plenty of feedback on trigger reset. Love that Long Slide. While I was picking it up I also bought a M&P 45 with thumb safety. It will be in by Friday.
Just amazes me that the PC Shield 9mm started it all and now I have 0 Glock's and quite a few M&P's. I will post pictures of them probably this coming weekend.

What a turn off events/brand. When you go all in, you do. Congrats.

Yes, M&P's can become addicting.

We didn't switch to the M&P, although I tried all the major brands before narrowing it down to the M&P40. Glock was one of the brands we considered, but I couldn't get past the blocky grip.

250,000 rounds, and dozens of M&P pistols later (we didn't keep them all), we're happy with the M&P line of pistols. Given the chance to start over, i wouldn't do anything differently.

I got my first M&P9 back in '07, and gave that one to the wife after she shot a 1500 round count weekend class with it last October.

I currently have two M&P9's, a 9c, a Shield, and a PC Shield. Throw in hers, and that makes an even half dozen.

I still have more 1911's than that!

Most people don't realize that if you put an M&P in your safe, they propagate and you end up with more. Its almost like you can't have just one...

Guy's thanks for all the comments. I am not exclusive to American made guns but sure do attempt to buy them when at all possible. Then you look at the track record that can not be beaten by Glock or any other brand out there.

Yep it certainly does get a hold of you.

I went for years with only an old 22 Remington rifle stuffed away in my closet.

Decided to pick up an M&P 9c just as the Shield was being introduced.

I found a Shield 9... 30 days after I purchased the 9c.

10 months later an M&P15-22 was added to the fold.

A couple months later an the 9c was traded for a M&P15 Sport.

Then an M&P 22 found its way home.

I was at a training course this past weekend and I saw more M&P's in use than any other model. More and more are finding it is the best gun.

My new 45 that I am picking up is an FDE. It will look awesome with my Pro-Series back straps on to and the black tool and magazine release

Same thing for me. Started with a M&P Shield as a gift. Now I have that, plus a M&P-40, 2-M7P Pro 9mms, and a M&P 9mm 2.0. Five total, and I didn't even buy the first one. I did have to put new barrels in the MP-40 and the 2- MP Pros. Made a huge difference.

As you can tell from my signature, I too was bitten by the M&P bug.

I saw a doctor for this affliction but they said there was no known cure and the only treatment was to shoot the M&Ps on a regular basis and if the urge became overwhelming buy a new one.
