I figured I would wait until I actually had my gun in hand before formally introducing myself. This was my first gun purchase, M&P .40, and I love it. This forum as well as S&W's customer service reputation pushed me towards the M&P, and renting one at the range sealed the deal. I grew up shooting .22 long rifles, but pistols are a fairly new world to me, so lots of noob questions to follow. Thanks for having this place!
