I also have one in 40 S&W and love it, I find it both comfortable in the hand and accurate, I haven't done any trigger work on it yet and don't think I will as the trigger on mine is quite good as it came from the box.

Those interchangeable backstraps are what my parents love the most about theirs. My step dad has big ham hands, and uses the biggest one, my mom has very small petite hands and uses the smallest one, yet they still have the exact same gun, with interchangeable parts and magazines, and interchangeable shooters.

No M&P in centerfire but I love my M&P .22 plinker pistol. What a blast! Plan in getting an M&P 9, one of the few poly's that I think has great balance.

You can dry fire with the mag out. I do it all the time while doing my functions check. MP .40

On some of the newer ones, yes. And I think there are some other considerations as to exact model. The ones my parents have are about 4 years old and have the mag drop safety, they will not fire with the mag removed. It even says on the side of the gun "...will not fire with magazine removed..."

Theirs has no thumb safety, don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.

I dont believe it does, the M&P autos have several different variations in each model... Thumb safety or not, magazine safety... Good guns though. I own 2 so far and out of all the polymer guns out there they are the ones I like as much as my Glocks , in fact I actually have traded all my 9mm Glocks away since I like my M&P9 Pro better than my Glock 17 or 19. The jury is still out on which I like best between the M&P45 and my beloved Glock 21. Going to shoot some IDPA this Saturday and out the Smith through its paces and see how she compares to the Glock.

M&P 40S&W was my first pistol. I had ZERO issues with it other than the fact that I couldn't afford 40S&W rounds for it. I since traded it for an XDm 9mm. I would buy another M&P though, no doubt about it. Great Pistol!
