    There is a 1911 subforum, a GLOCK(make sure I spell it right for the GLOCKsters) subforum, and an XD Subforum.

    Is there anyone that owns a M&P or (Just want to mention it)Sigma?

    I am thinking about an M&P. What is everyones take on this pistol?

    It's an excellent pistol. They sell a lot of them at the shop and no bringbacks or complaints. I personally just don't favor polymer pistols.

    M&P's are great.

    The 9mm rental gun at one of my local ranges has many, many thousands of rounds through it will no problems. The range staff said the M&P .45 has not been problem free, however.

    I've cc a M&P 45 for more than four years, Some don't like the trigger but it has not been an issue for me. My son carries the same CC and my daughter carries a 9mm compact model. Not because it's what I gave then but becase it what fits them well. No issues and a fine pistol in your time of need. It's not a target pistol, might be if you put in the effort but it isn't the pistols intended use. Bottom line if that time comes this pistol will serve you well, easy to operate, fits the hand well and easy to carry. 10 +1 in the 45 is more than enough to protect yourself. Ambi mag release and quality mags from S&W makes this a solid choice. I have over 4k rounds though my 45 and don't see a lot of wear in the barrel or moving parts. I carry mine daily and it still looks almost new.

    I'm not real big on poly handguns but if I was going to get another one I'd consider the M&P. I've owned Glocks, had a Sigma (really liked it for the money).I still own a Browning Pro 40 but it does not see daylight all that often. If someone was to ask me about poly pistols I thought were worth having I'd most often suggest the M&P or maybe the Sigma. They are pretty nice weapons and wont kill you on price.

    M&P is the only non 1911 poly pistols I would own, besides an HK and lastly, a Beretta.

    Fit, functionality, reliable, and accurate. :cool:

    Love my M&P9 Pro. Spitty, I believe it was, had some serious beef with the M&P his department issued him, particularly the trigger, but I can't complain about the Pro trigger at all.

    OK, so know I have settled on the M&P, next question. What caliber? I am leaning towards .357sig, I like this round. Also this is what my wonderful Sigma is. I have .45's so I don't want another(right now). I am now stuck between either 9mm or .357sig, I am not interested in .40, leaning heavily towards .357sig.

    Let's hear about what you like and why?

    Bask in the beauty of the M&P.

    Maybe this can push my Sigma back into the safe.:eek::D

    Not Sure Why there is not a M&P/Sigma sub forum.:confused:

    I do what I can. I call it a gift, really.

    If it were me, I would go with the .45 acp. I am not you. But for trying to decide between 2 rounds one pricey and the other very common...I would go with the cheaper more common round. Plus, that would be another round that your family can handle easily. Just sayin...:)

    Go with the 9mm or .40 so you can get the Pro Series, IMHO.

    Depends on what you want to do with it when it comes to caliber. If you had it in 357 Sig can it use a 40 bbl and shoot both? I thought it was a pretty good thing I like about my 229 sig is I can change barrels between 40 and 357 sig and use the same mags even. It's not the end all best ever dealie but it's pretty cool to0 know that I can do that and have two weapons in one with just a bbl change. I don't know a while lot about the M&P's other than firing a few friends so I don't know if the Smith can do that. BE great if you could though.

    9mm 100%. There should be a sigma and an M&P subforum. I agree.

    The sigma dosent come in .357 sig? Did you mean something else? The sigma only comes in a 9 and a .40.

    I seem to remember .357Sig Sigmas. Did they stop making them?

    Hmmm, Maybe we should inform S&W that they made a mistake. Because my Sigma is .357sig.

    Don't bust his balls too much, Shihan. He's right about them no longer being made in .357 Sig.

    I've owned 2 M&Ps (briefly) and I found them a tad large and both the ones I had came with the mag disconnect. I really dislike mag disconnects so I didn't warm to either of them. Very serviceable guns but I've always preferred the XD platform in poly guns.

    As far as caliber, I'd probably opt for a 9mm. This gives you a bit of flexibility in terms of calibers on hand and 9mm can be found very cheap on occasion...
