Default M&p .40

Saw a M&P .40 for sale at a local gun store. It was used and they were asking $409 for it. Guy said the previous owner bought it new from them, didnt like the recoil of a .40 after putting one box of ammo through it and brought it back to trade in. Is that a good deal?? I may get it...

Yes, it's a great deal on a great gun. You really can't go wrong here if the gun is in fact "like new".

Oh it looks great. Barely any wear on the barrel or slide.

Sounds like a good deal but (you knew that was coming right) have you shot a .40 S&W? Reason I ask is that you may not like the recoil either. .40 is not a heavy recoil, just different...some would say snappy, especially with the lighter PD type rounds.

I've owned several .40. I can honestly say the .40 in the m&p does not have the same recoil...it's much lighter. You will like the m&p...one of the best on the market.

Good, that's sorta where I was going, try out a similar gun in that caliber before you commit to a purchase. Good luck...

I would go to the range and see about renting an M&P40 to see. The Glock is going to give you a different feel then the M&P. Apples to Oranges.

That's fine but a G23 is not an m&p 40. My buddy (LEO) tried the G23 and was completely turned off to .40....that is until he tried my m&p. Night and day. The m&p .40 shoots like a 9. Smooth and easy to handle...unlike the Glock. I just hate for you to experience the same as my buddy did.
