    Its a single stack sub compact m&p specifically aimed at the concealed carry market

    S&W needs to get over itself.

    We already have a PF-9, Ruger LC9, Walther PPS, Bersa's BP9, Kimber Solo, R9, Kahr PM9/CM9, Diamondback DP9, Beretta Nano...

    Essentially they are the last manufactures making a single stack. Why build excitement over being last?

    I can understand single stack with large/long cartridge like .45 or 10mm but see no point in making one in 9mm especially since most are too large/heavy for all around pocket carry. The only exception seems to be Rohrbaugh R9 which is very pocketable.

    Hey, I've been wanting Glock to make their 26 with a single stack for years.

    If S&W will do that, well great! They, like Glock, are top companies and it's about time they made their excellent sub-compacts slimmer.

    I bet it will look like a PPS, just like S&W did with the S&W99 (Walther P99). Aren't they also coming out with an "improved trigger" in the M&P line? Probably be just like a PPQ trigger.

    S&W loves to take what Walther does and stick their name on it, sell it for 10% less, sell accessories (mags, sights, etc.) for 25% less - all to retain market share and screw Walther.

    They probably went to Germany 8 years ago and begged Walther to build the M&P for them.......and not tell anyone ;)

    Even though S&W may be last to capitalize on the CCW 9mm boom, I think this is absolutely awesome! Competition is great for us as the consumers. And even though my primary CC is a PPS, I am still very excited to see this pistol.

    Too bad it's not something original. As noted, this is the same concept that many other companies already have out. At least Springfield's small single stack is in 45acp. In fact, I bet that's why S&W delayed release...didn't want to be embarrased by the XDS. Now, can we get on with the M&P in 10mm? Or how about a M&P AR style rifle in 308/7.62!

    It's hard to get excited about "1cm" grip thickness reduction at cost extra rounds lost in pistol that can not be carried in your average pocket.

    Personally, I'd disagree. That bit of grip thickness reduction for me is the difference between carryable and not.

    Try as I might, I cannot comfortably carry a double-stack gun IWB. I know I'm picky (I don't even like having a wallet or cell phone in my pockets - every time I sit down I empty them), but little single stacks bring it down to a tolerable level of discomfort. Apparently, I'm not alone, as these single-stack 9's are selling pretty well.

    Its not only grip width reduction, it is the loss in weight of the extra rounds that also helps carry.

    If compact 9x19 needs a holster I would want 10 round out the barrel before re-laoding.

    ...also for states that never got over the "Assault Weapon Ban" 10-round magazine limit. :barf:

    If its as good as the PPS they'll have a winner.

    But how many double stack 'compacts' are already out there? And they keep coming out with more every year.

    Every time a single stack glock 9mm gets mentioned there are tons of people that want it.

    All of those you listed are either looong triggers, or DA/SA and/or have too many reliability issues for a lot of people.

    The only one you listed that compares would be the Kimber Solo with a consistant trigger pull and a thumb safety.

    Um, excuse me... but is that a (stupid, pointless) thumb safety I see there??

    Count me out. :rolleyes:

    The fact that they are S&W will get me to buy one of their guns before I buy a Kel-Tec or DB, regardless of who was building them first. Do you think that Glock should just give up on making a single stack because others have "beat them to it"?.....Brand name sells products just as well (if not better) than performance....

    I would assume that it is no different from the rest of the M&P line where they also have offerings without the thumb safety.
