Dont agree with the quality problems with the M&P. Yes during the first year or so of their existance that was the case. But not now. Bought my M&P 40 a year ago, have over a thousand rounds through it, and my compact M&P has 300 or so through it. Neither one has had so much as a hiccup! I owned an XD previous to my M&P. Gotta say that I like my M&P better. Not knocking the XD, just saying I like my M&P better.

Fellow M&P 40 owner here. I have had about 2500 rounds through it, all Winchester FMJ or JHP. Not ONE problem. Love this gun and would trust it anytime anywhere.

I would get another M&P so your already used to the mechanics and firing. Although it is good to broaden your horizons. Dont get a Walther P99. They would be perfect firearms if they didnt have so many malfunctions. I wouldnt trust my life with one.

CZ75B in 40 cal.

This is a great pistol, but a little heavy for CCW.

Clint Smith owns several XD's, uses them in his training courses at Thunder Ranch, and strongly endorses them.
This is fresh news to me and I own two M&P's and one of them I've owned for almost two years and never had a single misfeed or misfire. Between the two I'm close to 5,000 rounds. No factory recalls, replacement parts or even a word of a quality issue. Please reference the number of "quality control problems".

Back to point, an ankle holster is great for a back up but not where you want to carry your primary protection. The bad guy wanting your wallet isn't going to give you time to tie your shoe so going to you ankle is about as far as possible you can go to get a firearm for protection and it is a poor idea.

I carry a M&P 45 most of the time and cover with a coat or an unbuttoned shirt over a tee shirt. When the weather is warm I carry a M&P 9mm compact in a iwb holster under a tee shirt, it's right were I need it/can get to quickly with out much effort and it doesn't leave a print/noticable to the average person

Walther PPS .40S&W - This is one of the smallest and thinnest .40's you will find. You may be intersted to know that you can adjust the length of the grip by choosing different magazine options. The standard magazine holds 6 rounds, but you can choose a 5 or 7 round magazine to adjust the grip's length.
