EXCELLENT...!!! CONGRATS...!!!
Now dont keep us in suspense for to long, let us know how you like it and how the trigger is, and the accuracy.
PS...... pics or it didnt happen

Welcome aboard!

I'm going to pick up an M2.0 in 40 as well, just haven't decided if I want to wait until the 5" NTS model comes out or grab a NTS 4.25"model right now.

No thumb safety!!! Duh!!! I haven't owned pistols for many years that had external safety's, this one however I don't mind. Feels like a 1911 to me. Nice place for my thumb. It not in the way at all. I probably will always leave the safety off. The pistol is very comfortable. Will give a report after I shoot it. Thanks for the welcomes everyone, glad to be here.

Train yourself when you pull the gun from your holster, your safety should be off before your gun fully clears your holster. That way there will be no worrys if you ever need it in a hurry.

So I got to shoot the new 2.0 today. I am by no means an excellent pistol shot but am pleased with the 57 rounds I put down range. The target was 12-15 yards away. I wanted to shoot fairly quick as this was purchased for home defense/protection. I think I need to work on my form/grip/trigger pull. My pattern as you can see is to the left, I will work this out. This was my first time shooting an m&p. I liked the trigger pull, crisp with an audible reset. I like two stage triggers so I like this one. I like the sights and the white shows up well outside while shooting, still want to get some night sights someday but for now they will work just fine. On the shot the 40 didn't seem snappy at all and quick follow up shots were the norm. Recoil was very acceptable. As some reviews have stated the grips are rough, well I agree with that but in the short 5 days I have had it, I have practiced unholstering, dry firing and now live firing, and I like the texture on the grip of this pistol. I like everything so far about this pistol. As soon as night sights are put on this, it will become my night stand firearm. I think in winter this will be my ccw. I will wear an owb holster and cover with my coat, carry an extra mag and will have plenty of firepower with a weapon that I have confidence in. S&W did a great job on this I feel.
