I bought an M&P 40 a couple weeks back and thought I'd post about it.

I chose the M&P because I liked the feel of it better than a Glock or XD/XDm. I think they are all fine guns, but this one felt best to me. After experimenting, I have discovered that even though I have medium sized hands, I like the large backstrap the best. I like the easy takedown on this gun and cleaning has been a breeze.

The trigger on mine is pretty smooth but very heavy. I estimate it around 8-10lbs. I will see about getting a little trigger work done to it, but I am happy to report none of the 'gritty' feeling that others have had. The sights are low profile and were right on out of the box. I got the one with the external safety. I just like knowing I have that extra precaution. (when I drill, I practice thumbing the safety down every time I draw) The recoil isn't bad and muzzle flip is very manageable. The only brawback I have is readjusting my grip from my STI.

I've put 250rds through it so far with no FTF/FTE. I am very happy.

Here are some pics.

All these were shot at 7yds

The range I went to (Marksman off Galveston Rd in South Houston) had lines painted on the range. I didn't know how far they were, but after I shot I went and found out. I'd prefer lines at 5, 10, 15 and 25yrds. This range only had them at 3 & 7 with 18yds being the max distance.

Cool! Looks like your groupings are pretty decent. M&P's are great guns too. Fist sized groupings as fast as you can shoot them is usually ideal.

As far as the trigger goes, you might check this guy out as I hear he does excellent work for the M&P's:

Smith and Wesson M & P

3, 7 and 18 are the distances for the CHL, I have been contemplating an M&P, but my XD has too strong of a hold right now.....

Reacher The M&P full size 9mm I own will consistently group 2" from a horizontal rest for your forearms at 50 ' .I haven't owned a 9mm of any other make that will do this from my hands . One of the pistols was a Sig. 226 in 9mm. I think the 40 S&W should do as well since the M&P was first developed for 40S&W.
