    So I did add a plastic to the collection. Picked up an M&P .40 from Bud's for $399 delivered - hard to go wrong at that price. I had owned 2 in the past and both had mag safeties and really "crunchy" triggers (for lack of a better word). This one has no mag safety and the stock trigger is leaps & bounds better that the others I had before. For the price, I think this will turn out to be a decent buy. Yes, I did get the thumb safety model as it operates just like my 1911s.

    The holster & mag carrier came in today so I'll most probably check this one out at the action shoot on Saturday...

    I love the M&P. But why in 40. You are one of the FTF folks that talked me out of a 40. "Too snappy" you said.:confused:

    Jo, I have 8 guns in .45 and a freaking boatload of .40 ammo. I acquired all the .40 back during the days when it was all I could find on the shelves. While .40 isn't my favorite round, I don't mind it with "duty" sized guns...

    Congrats on the buy I expect you will enjoy the pistol, the next M&P I buy will have the thumb safety as I think it's a nice add for a striker fired pistol. I've never shot one in 40 but expect it will preform well. I will say that my FNP-40 has more snap than my M&P 45.

    Finally shot this one yesterday (Shihan did as well) and I'm pleased with it so far. The trigger on this one is leaps & bounds better that the 2 I previously owned which both had the mag safety. Not sure if there's a connection between the mag safety and "crunchy" triggers but this gun is far superior to the others I had. I've owned a number of XDs and I think I like the way this one feels in the hand a bit better. The XD has always felt a tad top heavy to me so maybe the bore axis on the M&P is a bit lower or some such. The trigger is still a tad stiffer and more "vague" than I'd like but I've also seen how easy it is to do a home trigger job on these - so that may be my next experiment...

    Good to hear you like the pistol. The trigger does smooth out with use but I do suggest a trigger job (my son would tell you I'm wrong). I paid to have mine done and was truly impressed with how it turned out.
