I have one of these in 9mm and love it. I am thinking of getting one in .40 also. It carries nicely IWB and OWB w/wo paddle or belt. Unfortunately, I would have to part with something else first to acquire a twin(?big brother).

I had a M&P40 full-sized, and it was a great gun. I should have never sold that one. :(

I always thought of picking up its little brother (the compact), but it just wouldn't fit my big old paws. Close, but I had to squeeze my hands on to the grip to get all my fingers on it, even with the mag extension. If it wasn't for that, I would have picked up one. If it fits your hands, go for it!

Yesterday I qualified for the LEOSA with my M&P 40c...and it did it's part perfectly...if I would have done my part I wouldn't have had the two fliers in the 7 ring! Not a hiccup with the pistol. :s0155::s0155:

Nice pistol however I prefer the 9. I had a G27 for awhile which is comparable. Great gun but for me, I found the G22 not that much harder to conceal so something to think about is just getting the full-size...

I bought an m&p 40c a few months back brand new and the very first time I shot it was at the Oregon Firearms Training Academy and put at least 400 rounds through it. Straight out of the box, this has been the most reliable handgun I have ever shot. No jams, no stovepipes, no malfunctions of any kind and it's a sweetheart to shoot as well. I shot the qualifier at the end of the day no problem. It is an awesome gun and I will not ever part with it.

The nice thing about the MP40c is that you can get a 9mm conversion barrel and magazine and you have a 2nd choice for ammo. The opposite is not an option (40 conversion barrel in a 9mm).

There is no comparison to the G27. I have owned & carried both. I think the M&P is far superior. You can actually grip the Smith Much better ergonomics. Rock solid dependable and a great trigger for a self defense weapon. I did not like how thick it is and grew tired of feeling it all the time when on my hip. Switched back to a 1911.

I've carried the full size M&P 45 for about five years, Last year I bought I M&P 9mm C for easy carry and truly enjoyed it. My mistake was letting my adult daughter shoot it. On the way home from the range she talked me out of the M&P. I ended up with her G27 that she had caried for more than a year, she got it after taking a defensive shooting course at the range. I sold the G27 and bought another M&P C this time in .40, I liked it a lot but a bit more snap, it's now owned by my adult son who talked me out of it "I would carry all the time if I had a pistol like this". I got his FNP40 that I enjoy and decided to keep and now saving for another M&P Compact.

A truly good carry pistol and I learned to quit letting my kids shoot my pistols!

I bought the M&P 40 to sell(good deal) and I have had this gun for 3-4yrs now, I love the ergonomics, but not the trigger feel(to be fair, this was one of the early guns and I hear they have worked that out), so I got a trigger job, but now I have light primer strikes on ammo that has tuff primers, so I will probably go with the Apex trigger kit and see where we are after that.

So all in all, I'd love to love it, but I tell ya, I like the Glock trigger feel better(I used to hate the Glock, still hate it's ergonomics, but those guns work).

The next question is, can I get a 9mm barrel/mags for a full sized M&P 40 like you can the compacts? I must say though I like the concept of the 40 cal, I truly enjoy shooting the 9mm more.

My first pistol was a Glock 22 about 14 years ago. Kept it until last year, when I got a M&P 40compact for my EDC. A few months later, got the fullsize for the bedside. The feel in my hand & when shooting just feels WAY better than the glock (and XD) IMO. HOWEVER the trigger is atrocious compared to others (XD & 1911's). Mine are getting better with some rounds thru them (about 300 rds each so far) but prolly gonna get a drop in trigger like others mention replacement anyway, esp after shooting my buddies XD (AWESOME trigger, the rest I don't like).
It is a bit wide compared to a 1911 for edc, but worth the bulk IMO.

The C40 is a good gun, had one for over a year. My nephew wanted it, so replaced it with a G23. I have shot Glocks too long, just like the Glock a little better. It is a matter of which you like best, they are both excellent guns. JMHO : Bill :)
