I will agree. I have been contemplating one for myself. I can't decide on caliber. My duty weapon is a glock and it's beginning to grow on me, but during training with the M&P I was impressed right away. It has options of three grips to fit your hand. I would suggest trying all three grips to be sure of decision. The medium fit my hand but I just did not have the control I thought I should have. I went to the large grip and put an entire clip in the center of the 4 at twenty yards. Accuracy is great. We didn’t do any shooting at the fifty with the M&P. The slide action is smooth and not over powering to where you lose your sight picture. Maintenance is minimal like the glock. Disassembly is easy. I can't think of anything negative about the gun other than if your have a limp wrist it cant stove pipe the casing. Buy it, if you don't like it, it wont be gard to resale.
If you can remember how many weapons you have? You Don't have enough. Breathe, Squease, and Move on.
