Here is a price on the 45 acp

I can usually find better prices than buds. buds is just easy to quote.
Todays trip to a couple gun shops revealed very little 9mm ammo, but was able to get American Eagle for $22 per box. .45 ACP was running at $48/50. I could get .40 in many more brands and loadings but the AE .40 was running $19 per 50. First time I've seen it priced less than 9mm. AE was the only brand I could find range ammo for all three calibers in boxes of 50. All the other 9mm were defensive loads at over $25 per box of 20 or 25.

So, at almost $1 per trigger squeeze for .45 ammo I could see .45 cal pistol sales declining a bit. 9mm pistols are sitting in shops for a while around here too, not so much because of ammo prices, but availability.

Mail order ammo, the-armory, cheaper than dirt, Ables in Huntsville TX, ammunition depot, bulk ammo.
Look around, those prices you quoted and availability are terrible.
Ammo isn't hard to find. Buy from out of state and put the sales tax savings toward the shipping.

I have broken my polymer habit, however, when I owned plastic, I would take an m&p over brand g any day of the week, and twice on sunday.

My pop has an M&P45 that I have shot plenty. They are great guns and 15 round extended mags!

Imo they are the most comfortable double stack .45 to hold.

The M&Ps made this year have a new trigger with a better reset.

I had an M&P 9mm, the year they came out, and was not impressed with the trigger on it. After a while, Apex came out with their trigger kits, but to me, it wasn't worth spending the $100+ on one, so I sold it and put the $$ towards my AR.

What made it feel weird to you?

Default 45's other then 1911's

I only shoot one of my 1911's now, the rest are retired. Mine is a Combat Commander with a Compensator on the Barrel, adding .25"
The Last time we were all out shooting in the Desert(2 Sundays ago) our current MAG'ers, and our new members from My Temple(synagogue) one Gentleman Had a Ruger SR-45,and another had an HK 45,...They Both shot extremely Well, Accurate, and very little recoil, about the same as the Full Sized SR40 another friend had out that day...
