I have the M&P 40 fullsize and the compact, plus I have the M&P 15X rifle. I got the fullsize M&P in 2007, the M&P 15X in 2009, and the compact last November. I have NEVER had one malfunction with the pistols of any kind. I only had one failure with the rifle and that is when a case swelled after firing and did not want to eject (factory ammo). Other than that, great performer and fun to accessorize too. My fullsize 40 is my house gun complete with weapon light, and my compact is my everyday carry gun. I highly recommend anything from the M&P line!!

Picked up a FS .40 to build a USPSA Limited Division "Budget" blaster as something different than what I normally shoot. (Production or Revolver)



Got it set up with Apex sear/fpb, f/o front and blacked out rear sights, Speed Shooter Aluminum magwell, TF mag extenders.

May switch to a brass magwell and add a tungsten guide rod when I find some funds. It will still cost less than half of a full blown custom limited gun with set of super tuned mags.

.40/357 sig, a 9mm Pro 5" and the most recent a .45 in Dark earth.

I pan on having one of each!

FS .40 for home defense...has Trijicon night sites, however I plan to add a Crimson Trace Light Guard...thinking of switching its load out to a Cor*Bon Glaser safety round instead of Hollow points...what do you think? http://www.shopcorbon.com/Glaser-Saf...g/500/500/dept



Also, I have the .40 compact with Crimson trace laser grips and X-grips for my backup mag for daily conceal carry....I carry it using the Original (not fake) Smart-Carry holster along with a Dale Fricke Zack holster (kydex snap over trigger guard) with lanyard for quick removal upon weapon draw. Loaded with Hornady Critical Defense rounds. http://www.hornady.com/store/40-S-and-W-16...itical-Defense/



I plan to add a M&P piston driven AR-15 in .556...at least the M&P lower and maybe an Adams or other manufacturer's piston driven upper....seems like gas piston is the way to go....cleaner and more reliable.

I own a 9c, 45c and AR15 MOE. I love the 45 caliber because... well, its a 45 caliber. Always feel safer carrying it over my 9 mm even though a 9mm is sufficient enough for self defense. Would say my .223 is even better but I can't conceal it without walking with a stiff leg

Out of my 2 M&P's I like my 9c the most. Don't get me wrong I love my .45fs but I shoot the 9 more and its with me everyday... I'm just more attached to the 9c. I bought my .45 first because I just really wanted an M&P. I bought the 9c because I loved the .45 so much and I wanted another M&P for CC.

I picked the 9mm full-size and 9mm compact because I shoot a lot but don't reload. Wanted the full-size mags to fit in the compact.



I'm one of the HD/SD/range/competition guys and I'm thrilled to have a gun that meets all of my needs.



I am often tempted to switch to 40 Cal for commonality with my duty weapon and local PD, but I'm so deep into 9mm now with guns, mags, and ammo it just doesn't make sense.

I picked the 9mm because it is my first personally owned pistol and i want to shoot a lot with it. I figured the cheapest ammo would allow me to shoot more and more. I also based my decision on the newer +P hollow points that are out there for a 9mm that make pretty good self defense ammo.

I have a 9, 40, and 45 in compact and FS just in case ammunition becomes scarce again. That way I'm able to keep at least one stocked. All have Trijicon Night Sights on them.

My agency issues the M&P 40 as its service weapon, so I have a full size 40 that does not belong me but I get to shoot. I own a 40c for concealed carry and a 9mm Pro for IDPA.

I simply love the whole m&p line. I own a FS 9 and an m&p15 psx. Also picking up a full size 40 next week. I have never had any malfunction of any kind and absolutely love my 9. Around 8000 through it and loving every shot of it

My M&P pistols come in M&P40 and M&P357, plus a 9mm conversion. We also have an M&P in .357 Magnum/.38 Special, .223/5.56 and hopefully there will be one available in .44 Magnum fairly soon. If they were available in .380 ACP we would have one of those also (380 Bodyguard is still working through some issues so i'll stick with the LCP/CT.)



Prefer my M&P40 for 2 1/2 reasons and the M&P357 for 2 (kinda):
  1. 40S&W because the more powerful (than 9mm) round is sufficient for self-defense even against winter clothing when it gets down below 0.
  2. My M&P40s and the M&P357 share a common magazine and have fully interchangeable barrels.
  3. Both can be quickly, easily and economically converted to 9mm.
  4. 357Sig has lots of flash and bang, makes blasting soda cans even more fun (especially when they're still full).

I also carry my M&P40 when hunting. It makes a good finishing weapon and is powerful enough to take down most of the predators I'm likely to encounter. Even then, I might be switching to a lightweight 6 shot .44 Magnum wheelgun, JIC.
