Yeah, I may change it at some point, but it'll do for now. The lighting doesn't really do it justice either, has some dark metal flake in it. Didn't think it was too bad for my first paint job.

For folks wanting a cheap and fairly easy method of precisely painting the contours of their M&P, you might want to look into a product called Fasmask.

Clean the parts to be painted according to the paint manufacturers instructions. Paint the Fasmask product on in 3 medium-thin coats, or spray it on if you have the proper equipment, let it dry thoroughly between coats. You can use a blow dryer to speed up the drying times, but it would probably be better if you did this when you weren't in a hurry to get somewhere.

With a #11 scalpel or a angled hobby knife (and a magnifier, for those of us over 50) cut through the liquid mask exactly where you want the new color to begin, then gently lift the liquid mask from the field to be sprayed. Spray 6 to 8 very thin coats of paint, you should still be able to see the base color even after the third pass. Let it dry thoroughly between coats. Ceracoat takes one or two coats, and you don't need to wait as long between coats. Once you're satisfied that coverage is complete, you may want to apply a couple coats of matte sealer or top coat to take any glare off your paint. Finally, remove the remaining liquid mask and you'll have a near perfect paint line. With a sharp knife this method is so precise, you could add an accent color in that little valley between grip panels (although it's probably easier to use a fine tipped brush... and a magnifier).

Ok.. got the itch again, so I scratched it, and scratched it hard... I have a little touch up to do, and a little color fill, but I like the way it turned out!

Thanks! It's actually a little darker irl. The flash really lightened it.
