My new EDC - 4" M&P 45 ACP
« on: February 14, 2011, 10:05:52 AM »
I LOVE this gun! I decided that I wanted my Every Day Carry gun to be as close to my IDPA gun as possible. It made sense to me that both pistols have the same grip angle and controls, and operate exactly the same. I'm used to the ergonomics, and since I can successfully perform immediate action to clear a malfunction with my M&P 9mm during the pressure of a match, I figure that will give me a leg up if I ever find myself in a situation where I need to perform in real life. So far, I've got about 100 flawless rounds through it. It's a very SWEET shooting gun. It'll be better after the installation of Apex Tactical Duty/Carry kit, which will address the trigger. The M&P comes stock with a less-than-stellar trigger, and in my opinion is the ONLY drawback to this pistol. My tactical partner (My wife) was also impressed!



I'll hopefully be able to post a proper range report after I fully put it through it's paces.

Very nice, congratulations.

The M&P is about the only pistol I have not shot. I carry a XD 45 tac for duty and I really like that pistol. I would like to try the M&P and see how it compairs to my XD. I have thought about getting in to competion shooting but just have not had the time to try it.  But the only thing that counts is that you like the pistol and it feels comfortable in your hand.
