I've never even shot one--and I bought two of them this past weekend!



Let me explain. I bought a brand new M&P40 on Friday. When I got it home, I could not get the frame tool to turn--at least not without pliers. I took it back to the store on Sat. and they gave me full credit toward a new gun. So I got the M&P45 instead.



On Friday I had a really tough time deciding between the two guns, so I guess when I had a problem with the .40, I saw it as a "sign" to get the .45. I'm hoping to get to shoot it soon.



Kinda silly, huh?



I've been shooting off and on for over 20 years, mostly handguns. I've owned a Taurus PT-99, a S&W 1066, Glock 22, Glock 23, Kel-Tec P11, HK USP45, Browning Buckmark, 2 or 3 1911's, some DA revolvers, and a bunch of SA revolvers (did the cowboy action thing for awhile). My most recent handgun was a Beretta 92FS.



I know I'm gonna like the M&P. Can't wait to shoot it!

Just for a note, the Frame tool is always hard to turn at first. The plastic nubs wear in after the second or third use.

Yeah, my frame tool was hard to turn at first. You don't really want it to be too easy. Now it's just right...

This went way beyond "difficult". It literally took a pair of pliers to turn it. The store's gunsmith agreed that something was wrong and they took it back no questions.

Welcome to the site...that is exactly how mine was the first few times. I had to take a pair of pliers and a cloth to twist it out and I thought something was definatly wrong but like they have said it does loosen up.
