    Anyone had any experience with this, and what did you think? My wife and I were at a local gun store and looked at one and she really liked it, sad thing is I did too. I want one but I am afraid she would make me trade in my 92FS.

    They're good. Plenty of threads on 'em here if you do a search. I had some initial problems with ejected catridges coming down on my head. My trigger was gritty too, but broke in after 1,200 rounds. I did get great customer service from S&W and had a quickly returned pistol that works very well now.

    For the smaller handed, like me, the grip is about as pleasant as I have felt this side of a single stack on any handgun, bar none.

    I did a search but for some reason I always seem to screw that up, I will try it again.

    My wife liked the compact one more than the full size.

    I have both the compact and full size in 9mm. Strangely, I shoot the compact size a little better than the full size. I like them both. The advantage of the full size is a bit more velocity out of the barrel and a higher round count. The compact should allow for easier concealment. I say "should" because I usually carry a single stack pistol for concealed carry.

    I had a full size in .40 and it was a great gun. The back strap feature was really great. I wouldn't have sold it except i was moving and needed the money.

    Also, if there is ever a problem, S & W customer service is very helpful.

    the got it right IMO

    I think Smith has a real winner with the M & P. Mine is a tack driver and has never givenone issue. I only have about 1500 rund sthrough it but it has been perfect. Trigger was very rough but after an action job by David bowie, it is one of the best triggers on any of my semi's.

    A great gun love it, to big for carry IMO but what a super ragne and home gun..

    I've only fired one once, in 9mm. Seemed to work just as well as my G19, but the ergonomics were considerably better. YMMV

    My son and I just got back from the gun range. We shot my new .40 M&P. As good of a gun as it is to shoot, the ease of take-down and cleaning makes it even better. My old nickel S&W model 39-2 isn't too hard to take-down, but that M&P is a breeze!

    Awesome firearm!!!!

    I have the M&P in 9mm and used it in IPSC (Production)without a hitch. It's accurate, reliable and the small backstrap fits my small hands much better than any glock.

    I liked it so much I just bought the M&P 40. I want to move to major and limited.

    Just as an aside When I purchased my M&P 9 I bought it two days after the expiration of the magazine coupon for that month. I sent the coupon with an explanation that I missed the deadline and wondered if they would honor it. Three weeks late I received two new mags from S&W. Great CS.

    One more thing. If you do a google search you can find VERY good instructions on doing your own trigger job on the M&P. If you have the right tools and some mechanical experience you can smooth out the trigger, lighten it up and reduce the overtravel. It is very easy. (Do it at your own risk)

    Can't say enough about the M&P

    KRS, please tell me where to find this deal. "At $388. minus $50. rebate to $338." I'll be on it like white on rice.
    Thanks, Gas.
