Congrats, great purchase. You will be very happy. Can we expect a range report from you soon?

I wish I were technically knowledgeable enough to be able to provide a detailed range report to the extent my fellow FTF compadres with more experience than I have, would view it as credible.

As one who is never at a loss for words though, here's my take on it:

I took my M&P 40c out to the range yesterday with a friend who has a lot more experience with firearms than I do. We went through my G36, R1, CZ-75B, and the M&P 40c. In his opinion the M&P was his favorite with the CZ coming in a close 2nd. What was fun about the M&P was we had a chance to try out some standard American Eagle target loads as well as some Liberty self-defense loads. The Liberty loads were high velocity (2000 FPS 60 grain) HP's and we were in awe of them. Kind of snappy for such a hot load but accuracy was very manageable. Even so, the report from this load was so pronounced we had the range manager come over and ask what we were shooting. He thought it was a hot 44 magnum or very hot 357 magnum. He was surprised to learn it was a .40 S&W. I know they're expensive. But, I'm going to get more of the Liberty ammunition.

Regardless, after it was all said and done, the M&P operated flawlessly regardless of the rounds used. It is also one of the easiest pistols to clean I've ever owned.

My issue now is to find a great quality IWB holster for it. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I like Old Faithful. You can det a kit that you assemble yourself for about half the cost of the pre-assembled rig.

They offer a great warranty. And they're just quality products.
