Why not buy the .40 and get a 9mm conversion barrel? Best of both worlds!

That is what I was thinking. How much does that typically cost?

$550 for gun and about $180 for conversion barrel at Stormlake. Don't hold me to the prices as they are estimates. You will easily save that in ammo cost.

Thanks! Sorry for all the questions - then everything is the same but you just change out the barrel when you want either the 9 or 40 then?

Yup barrels get swapped depending on what you want to shoot that day.

I bought a glock 29 recently and a buddy of mine rented an m&p compact 40 and I shot a few clips out of it. It was very comfortable to me and sadly I shot it better than both my own gun and his glock 23. My fiancé has offered to buy me a compact 9 for our "4 years of being together" in march.

The number 1 reason I bought it was ergonomics. The thing just plain fits my hand like a glove. I had a Glock 17, and it was a great pistol. The M&P9 just fits my hand better than the Glock did. I also prefer the looks of the M&P and the fact that it's made in the USA for whatever those are worth.

One thing I don't like about the M&Ps is the lack of a audible and tangible trigger reset. The reset is there, but it's very faint in both feel and sound, even with the APEX ram installed. It's not that huge of a deal though, just a training issue.

Overall I am very pleased with the pistol. It's been reliable for the 500 rounds I've put through it, and I've been able to shoot it very accurately. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend them.
