    New Handgun

    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.

    Sweet price .. If you reload take a good look at the brass. I had read a ton of stuff on glock bulge and can confirm that there was some of it with my G20 which prompted me to change out the barrel. I know they improved it with newer iterations so just take a look after your first outing and your gun might not be affected.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.
    Cheers! Marc

    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.
