    I am in the market for a full sized 9mm handgun and want to buy American made. I narrowed it down to a fn-p or m&p 9. I have shot both and liked the m&p slightly more. Everything I read (other than the trigger, which I liked) has been two over exaggerated thumbs up across the board. Do any owners have some of the bad points if there are any. Thanks and best regards

    I have had the 9c for about two months and I have had front sight issues.

    At first the paint used in the front sight came out during the first trip to the range. Then I noticed the whole front sight drifted left when I cleaned it after the first 70 rounds. Tapped it the back with a wooden dowel and it drifted again with the next 85 at the range.

    Do Google search, you'll find hits for M&P sight issues. I have since upgraded to Ameriglo night sights... haven't been back to the range yet

    I have an mp compact. I love mine. It's easy to conceal, 12 rd magazine that I carry with. 3.5 in barrel. Felt recoil is good and is a pleasure to shoot. IMO a full size mp9 would be a little big to carry (at least for me). But the compact or even the shield is a great carry gun. I just like the compact for the extra mag cap.

    I cannot think of a single bad thing to say about my m&p.

    Hate the trigger, travel and reset aren't the best in my opinion

    My wife loves her M&P .40 and has never had an issue. I have the M&P .40 VTAC and had an issue with the fiber optic piece popping out of the front site. No biggie though, a little Loc-tite blue solved the problem. Between the two of us we have probably shot close to 1,000 shot through each and there have been no feed, fire or ejection problems.

    Love my 9C, but like some of the others, the dots fell out of the front and rear sites. Smith offered to repair the gun for free, but I did not want to be without it for a few weeks. I just painted the dots myself.

    I have an M&P shield 9 and 40c and didn't care for either trigger but replaced them with apex trigger kits and I wouldn't trade them for anything in the word.

    Had two FTF's when firing Gold Dots at the range yesterday. All practice ammo fed just fine. Rethinking CC ammo now.

    I use hydrashoks in my m&p 45. They cycle flawlessly

    If you get the 40c you'll get two mags one with the pinky extension and one without.

    Thanks ccrape. Going Wedsday to get it. Seems that our large chain department store has it for 499, and all the gun dealers are asking 525-560 for it.

    I have a Shield 9 and a VTAC 9. Both are superb after you put about 1k rounds through them.

    I love my m&p9 full size. Only gripe is that it doesn't feed federal HSTs to great. They get stuck in the chamber and hard to eject. Gold dots run perfect though. Been thinking about polishing the feed ramp.

    I have 8 M&P pistols in different configurations. I love them all and would not trade them.

    I have all three, the Shield's my EDC. The only issues I've ever had with any of them has been with bad ammo. Otherwise, they're like the Energizer Bunny.
