It's a keeper! First four shots using WWB hardball 40 cal. at 7 yards. Never had shot the gun before! Can't wait to get a compact! Never shot a M&P until today! I love the grip! So much better than my Glock (and that's even with a grip reduction job!). The grip you take with it in holster is same you bring up to the target. No "Monkey Gripping!" Also love the trigger! No little "tit" sticking out that you got to make sure you have compressed. Just point and shoot!
