Easy. The seller will help you with any questions you have. I've bought most of my collection from online sources. Just have a local FFL's name, address, and phone #s available to give to the seller, then have the FFL fax or email their number to the seller (or their FFL) so your purchase can be shipped to your FFL.
Ok I know there’s many that chuckle at the notion of that dreaded uncontrollable recoil from the “Snappy” 40. But my question is since smaller handguns do have inherently more felt recoil. Curious how the 2.0 40c is compared to the FS 40. I did recently shoot a FS 40. And I can say this much in my opinion it had less felt recoil than the Gen4 Glock 22 I used to own. Feedback welcome.
I have ten 40s in my "accumulation" and an equal number of 9mm, so you won't hear me chuckling. Nine of my 40s are S&W Gen3 metal guns and one plastic striker fired Walther PPS40. The PPS40 can be punishing after a few mags, but it's still my "go-to" on those rare occasions I wear a suit or sport coat. I carry two 40s - a CS40 or 4053 (DAO) as a CCW in the fall and winter months because I like shooting them and find them reliable.
I've never shot an M&P 40, but I've read many positive comments on the brand's forum. Most of mine are single stack S&W Gen3s that are made using their 45 caliber frames and under bored 45 barrels which make them less snappy than the beef-up or not 9mm frames used on most 40 offerings. You pay a price to carry less weight regardless of caliber. Enjoy your 40 and snicker at the naysayers.
Well now I’m really perplexed went to the range bought 200 rounds. And shot the crap out of the 2.0 shield 9, 2.0 9c and the Glock 43X.The 43X is definitely out and shot the shield like crap. Got more ammo and shot the 2.0 9c and my Gen 1 FS 9. And definitely shot the last two so much better.
