Anyone have anything bad to say about the M&P 9?

Thinking about picking one of these up here soon, and was looking for some feedback. Good, bad, or indifferent. Reading reviews online, most people seem to be pretty happy, but most reviews are several years old. Anyone have an opinion of these? I like the way they feel, and like the fact that they're American made. Any reliability, etc. issues with these?

Nope it is an excellent gun. All of my LEO friends have been issued the M&P in 357sig. They all like it alot they were issued Glocks before. I like the 45acp version the best.

I was leaning towards the 9mm only because I was thinking it might be a better "multi purpose" caliber that isn't too expensive to shoot a bunch at the range, but would still be half way acceptable as ccw or hd. Any opinions on caliber?

My only issue is with the caliber. I have the S&W issued to me at work in .40. The 9mm is a fast round, but not a lot of knock down power. .40 is slightly better, but .45 is best as for a manageble fight ender. Main reason why most LE agencies are no longer using 9mm. I've seen more than one image of bad guy that got hit in the dome by a 9mm round that did not penetrate the skull and dude kept fighting.

M&P 9 was the first pistol I purchased and I also read alot of reviews (basically random forums to get unbiased opinions) beforehand. I kind of wanted it for the range more than anything as ammo is reasonably priced and to occasionally conceil. So far I have been quite pleased over all with no jams or misfires (knocks on wood). Not the easiest or most comfortable to conceil at first being a double stack mag. but it's doable.

I'll also agree with the above post.

Thanks you guys. Sounds like all in all it's a pretty decent firearm. I'm going to hold off for a month or so until I figure out what works best for me with regards to caliber. Again, thanks for all of the input!

I guess we need to bump this up to find out what you bought. I went with the S&W M&P 40 and really love it. I also purchased a Blackhawk holster to carry it. I am left handed so finding an inexpensive holster that I liked was a little difficult.

I ended up going with the full sized .40, picked it up on black Friday and have been shooting the snot out of it since. Got a pretty smoking deal on the "range" kit w/ 3 mags, speed loader, useless holster, & some other stuff. I really, really like this gun! Thanks you guys for the advice. I also picked up a 22a for my wife which has turned out to be quite a kick in the pants to plink around with (and a heck of a lot cheaper to feed than my .40). I'm now seriously eyeballin' the GSG 1911-22's so I don't get accused of bogarting my wife's Smith. You guys have any positive or negative experiences with them?
