I bought a M&P .40 yesterday. I have fired a number of Glocks, Springfield XDs, and Sigs, but the M&P feels better in my smaller than average hands than any of them. The small backstrap feels great. I can't wait to get it out on the range to see what it can do.

Nice! I have the m&p9. The only thing I don't like about it is the mushy trigger and reset but that can be fixed

I went in for the 9mm, but walked out with the .40. I have a Sig P229 so I bough a bunch of Ranger-T, and Ranger Bonded in .40 over the years so I figured it would be nice to be able to use it. I can also get a 9mm barrel, and 9mm mags and shoot 9mm in the .40 if I want cheaper practice. I have been having reservations on the 9mm due to all the internet rumors of poor accuracy (yeah I know), but confidence in my weapon is important to me. The .40s seem to be more consistant as far as accuracy goes.

Oooh shiny.

Nice..Im not really sure if the mp.40 and the 9mm has the same stock gritty trigger feel as a stock mp.45. But after all the research I did before I bought the .45, I thought it couldn't be that bad or it'll go away after a 1k rounds. Nope, mine didnt, it was actually frustrating, I couldn't get my grouping together at 10-15 yards or can hardly shoot steel at 50 yards. But...after reading all the good reviews about the Apex tactical trigger upgrades, I decided to give it a try, and man... what a huge difference it made and feel. So if you run into the same stock gritty feel and long reset, dont hesitate on the Apex stuff, install was a breeze with all the videos. I didnt do the full $160 upgrade, I opted out for the dcaek kit for $80....good luck, you'll love it.

I have the DCAEK kit, but im thinking about taking it out and getting the forward set trigger kit. I put about 1000 rounds through mine stock, then added the DCAEK and I dont really like the feel. I might take it back apart and try one piece at a time. I have heard that just adding the Hard Sear makes a world of difference for trigger reset.

love my 9 and 45. I plan to get a .40 when the improved factory trigger guns become available. The 9mm and .40 are earning multiple big agency contracts., especially L.A. Sheriff.

Do yourself a favor and go ahead and order a stock S&W M&P 9mm barrel from midway and a few 9mm mags from 44mag.com. I have an M&P 40 full size and compact and the stock 9mm barrel drops right in and runs perfectly with 9mm mags. You will not be disappointed.

Nice! I'm looking into an MP 9 (either full or cpact) as well.

+1 on this I did the same with my fullsize, haven't gotten around to get the one for my compact yet but its on the short list. you can also get the .357 sig barrel from midway which is drop in without needing mags.
