Another full size, or get a compact...

I have been debating on which I would use the most, another 40 full sized or a new compact. I would like to have another full sized so I could trick it out, but the compact is tempting just for a back-up. I handled one today in Texas, and to be honest I caught myself reaching for my wallet. What do you think would be more practical?

I too was debating the issue, but got the compact. If you don't own a compact, I would definitely recommend the M&Pc!

I've been trying to decide the same thing myself. I would like to have a compact, and I want to customize a full size. Oh yeah, thinking about an AR.........



Now where is my lottery check......

If you already have a fullsize, then I would get a compact.

Got one of each in 9mm, saving for the 45 now! Since my compact is for CCW, I can't think of any reason to have more than one of that form factor but multiple full-size models in different calibers are appealing.

The reason I would stick with a 40 is simply I dont like buying all the different ammo, besides I can use my Full Sized mags in a Compact, if I choose to go that route. My Army buds are beating me up about the decision to go with a compact vs. an AR15, so I am still undecided. :wink:

I've had the full size in 9mm since early October and just finally came home with the Compact in 9mm this morning after several weeks of agonizing over the decision. I had wanted to pick up a 1911 in .45 ACP but the rising costs of ammo and what appears to be recent price increases in the Springfield line (I had my heart set on a "Loaded") changed my mind for me. It also helped to have a birthday gift card from Gander Mountain to put toward the Compact. I think Yukon's recent reports on his M&Pc 9mm helped sway me in that direction too.



I'm hoping to get to the range tomorrow and will report after that. Did I need the Compact? Of course not. Did I want it? You betcha!

Well, I went with both the M&P15T and the M&P40c, so there is no more debate in my life. I am one with Smith and Wesson.... :wink:

Got the fullsize .40, now I want the fullsize 9. Maybe then, I'll go for another compact?
