    I just traded a S&W Sigma 9ve for a new M&P 9mm. What a difference I put 250 rds tru it Sunday, All rounds were in a 2'' group dead center from 30 feet free hand. Weapon function flawless. What a weapon, love the look, the feel in my hand. For my money you can not do any better. Do you guys have any thoughts on the M&P 9mm..

    Thoughts? I own a couple Glocks, and have shot plenty more. After having the opportunity to test fire an M&P9C recently, if I was in the market for another plastic defensive handgun, I would give serious consideration to the S&W.

    I have an M&P9. The trigger took some getting use to. I did not care for the OEM sights changed to a Novak front night sight and a plain black 10-8 U-notch rear sight. Since this this is the 3rd rendition for S&W of a polymer frame striker fired pistol it should be right.

    The Sigma is an entry level pistol and is a good gun for it's intended use.
    The M&P is a whole different animal.
    I have the "pro series" version of the M&P9 and have shot a couple M&P duty models. It's one of my favorite pistols!

    S&W, finally got it right with a polygun.

    marineshooter: I'm partial to steel/metal guns with hammers; BUT, I've shot the M&P 9mm and was duly impressed. It pointed and shot like I had practiced with it. Equipment support seems to be strong and trigger improvements are available. A NICE GUN.

    M&P was prominent in this years USPSA Nationals in Las Vegas ,and I believe M&P won one (or more) of the classes. Glock and CZ also were winners.

    I traded a stock Glock 34, recently, for a gunsmithed M&P Pro (9mm). (I still have a Glock 35, which I expect to keep.) The prior owner of the S&WS had a lot of work done by Speed Shooters Specialties.

    This particular M&P Pro is simply outstanding...with a trigger as good as the better 1911s.

    I'm quite pleased with my M&P9.

    The trigger bar/sear is very easy to tune, and you'll want to radius and polish the striker block as well.

    The Burwell .pdf has great pics and easy instructions.

    Great pistol, excellent buy. I own two myself as well as the 40 S&W. Never a failure with any save the wife limp wristing a few her first time out (new shooter).

    Speedshooterspecialties has kept me stocked with parts and they're fast shippers too.

    I just bought a new M&P 9mm a couple months ago and I am very happy. It is IMO one of the best semi autos you can get as far as functionality and accuracy. I don't really know what more a person needs from a gun? Maybe you cannot hang it on the wall like a fancy 1911 or it doesn't have some fancy German name, but IMO it really the semi auto I like the best. YMMV

    I am going to get some CT laser grips for M&P 9 and it will be my primary CCW.

    I also own an M&P 45, so I am loyal to this gun. The M&P 45 was my previous CCW.
