Default m&p 9

anyone here own one? i've been seriously considering one, but nobody in my area has one i can test drive. i'd rather ask someone who owns one, than trust a magazine review.

I don't own one but my B.I.L has the M&P 9's full size and compact and 40's full size and compact.

IMO they are very comfortable to shoot and are quite accurate. Try to get to a range that rents guns and try them out. I personally like the 40 better and so does B.I.L.

I've owned two of the 9C and both I was guilted out of, one my daughter caries daily and the second now belongs to my daughter inlaw. I carry the 45 full size version of this pistol and I'm on my second one, my son now owns the first one I purchased. IMHO this is a truly dependable pistol that fits the hand well. A pistol I trust my life with.

As alway best to get your hands on one and shoot it to see if it fits you. Look for a range that rents pistols, even if it is a few hours drive it is worth the time. Nothing worse than buying a pistol that doest fit you, your expereince or your situation.

I own an M&P 9 and a 40 both full size. They are great shooters I've never had an issue with either one. The 40 I bought used for $375. You can't go wrong with a Smith they have a lifetime warranty.

I own an M&P9 Pro Series. It's the same as the M&P9L, the model with the 5" barrel, except that the factory trigger gets a little tune-up before they sell it. I've really enjoyed it so far; it's accurate, fits my hand nicely, and eats anything I feed it.

You will find the "out of the box" trigger to be a little heavier than the typical Glock. I have found that after a decent break in period the M&P triggers are much better than Glock. There are aftermarket parts that will improve the feel of the trigger reset (about $30).

As far as fitting your hand? With the interchangeable back straps, there is little chance you cannot find a configuration that does not work for you.

Most ranges that rent have M&P 9's...

Just purchased an M&P45 and love it!!!!!! I carry a sig 229 and for years carried Glocks. I was contemplating the m&p or a glock. Got this M&P dirt cheap and its worth every penny. Shoots great and for what they cost you are getting a great deal. Mt next purchase will be the m&p9 threaded barrel.

I own a 9c and think it is great. The only prob I had with it was the mags with a flat base plate tended to ride up in my hand when firing it. The pinky extension stopped that.
