Saw a M&P40 on a online website and was already to purchase when a Glock 22 Gen 4 LE trade popped up and well I just couldn't resist. $299 with night sights. Decided to give it a try and save a few bucks. This will be my first 40 cal handgun. Hope I like it. Should be at LGS next week.
The only Glock I have shot is a glock 22 a friend bough a few years ago. I believe its a 3rd gen. No problem with bulged brass on his. I dont like the way his gun feels in my hand, but in spite of that I have always shot it pretty well. He recently got a Shield 40 which I got to shoot. I was surprised that the Shield didnt feel much different than shooting plus p 9 in my shield
Congrats on a good deal!
Sounds like a great deal! We have a M&P in .40 and it is a fine pistol. What is nice is you can get conversion barrels for 9mm for it and have a dual caliber pistol.

Congrats on your purchase. Please post pics and hopefully, a range report afterward.
I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

Haven't gotten mine yet but went shooting with the LGS owner this morning. He brought these 40 cals- Beretta APX, G22. XD 40, and FNS 40. I shot the springfield the best but he knows I like Glocks or M&P's. Since he will be open tomorrow will probably pick up either a glock or smith. Still waiting for G22 to get here. Life is good!
Well I did it! Had to order a blue Label G23 Gen 4 with night sights. Should be here by end of week. Will have 2 handguns to break in by the weekend.
I have a Ruger P94 and a Sig P229 in .40 S&W and like the caliber. A bit more power and snap than the 9mm without giving up too many rounds in the magazine.

I am a 40 fan. I shoot my Springfield 40 better than any other autos I own. For reloads, I prefer loading 180 grain bullets sweet shooting rounds imo.
