New to the M&P world

Hi from MA (and the 10# trigger)
Just getting back into firearms and got my LTC. I did quite a bit of research while waiting for the processing of my paperwork and decided on the M&P 40C. Picked it up just before Christmas so haven't had a chance to get to the range. I am looking forward to running lots of rounds through it. It fits in my hand like a glove which was why I decided to go with the compact rather than the Shield. I also like the idea of being able to change it to 9mm.

Welcome from Wisconsin!

You'll love that 40C. I know I do. In case you're not aware of it you can get some mags for a full size 40 for a capacity of 15+1 rounds. Then get some inexpensive X Grips to fill the space on the bottom of the mag. Feels almost identical to a full size M&P40 which I also own. I carry either the full size or the 40C with the FS mag in the cooler months under a sweat shirt or jacket. In warm weather I carry a FS mag on my belt as a spare.

Unfortunately I live in the restricted state of MA and they are banned. I woudl need to find pre-ban mags otherwise it is 10 only. But I will be on the lookout for pre-ban mags
