M&P 9mm because:

1. I already own several 9mm handguns.

2. It is cheaper to shoot.

3. I will be shooting competition with this gun.

4. My wife will be shooting this gun.



I don't feel undergunned at all carrying 9mm, but if I get a chance I will get a .40/357Sig for carry/hunting purposes.

Back on topic: 9mm is cheaper for me to shoot, easier for me to teach a new shooter with (and my BT dummy barrel is ordered) and the M&P really is a great gun to teach a new shooter on. Now, the "old" shooter (me) wants a compact for me to carry.

Ok, I edited this post.. I found nothing offensive, but someone did.



I think that Captin Ray was refering to the commies, and just picked the first think that came to mind.



To those offended, chill.

I shoot 9mm with my full size M&P because:



1. $$$ Lower cost in bullets. Most definately if you like to shoot a lot.

2. Higher velocity/distance round

3. Can fit more rounds in the magazine. Nice if you are into high-cap category in action pistol shooting.



Good luck in your selection Pat !

It is a magazine. My M&P is chambered in 9x19MM Parabellum.

.40 for me. My pistol is for all around use, if it were just for target I most likely would have purchaced the 9mm. For a personal protection round I like a bigger thump.

I would have to agrre fully with Jeff 9mm M&P.



Ontop of his explination, I havent had a 9mm in a few years and the M&P9 sold me from hello!!! Perfect addition to the collection. Its all about prefference here, what suits you is important, all the M&P's are awesome. I am buying either the .357Sig or .45 ACP next. I plan on having all calibers of the M&P model!!



Good luck with your purchase, you will love it like no other!!!!!!



God Bless

Simply put, the .40 has proven itself to be every bit the manstopper that the .45 is. Somehow, 16 rounds of .40 in the svelt M&P, is about as appealing as a fighting handgun gets. It's just an excellent combination of stopping power and firepower, all rolled into one.

M&P Compact, 9mm is what I just bought for my wife. I love shooting it myself, however. Next it'll be a 40 Compact. These are just great guns. My son, who's a huge Glock fan, was extremely impressed by my 9 Compact when he visted this past week. I wouldn't be surprised to see him with one very soon.

I have a Glock 19, M&P .40 Full Size and M&Pc .40. I voted for the compact .40 because that is my EDC. I can't think of anything bad to say about any of these 3 guns. I have been shooting the G19 in my shooting league because I feel the lighter recoil lets me get back on target a little quicker, but I may go to the compact .40 after I get a bit better.

9mm compact because I want to carry it and I'm poor. I can shoot well with it too.

Full sized 40 & a 9mm compact...

Since this poll only allows for one choice I chose 40 caliber but I also have a 9mm compact and I'll have a brown 45 caliber with external safety whenever I can lay my hands on one. :wink:
