I got my full size M&P .40 on Friday and finally got around to shooting today. Boy this is the nicest auto pistol that I've ever shot. I had a Taurus PT 24/7 .40 that had rubber grips that were supposed to reduce felt recoil, but this Smith "felt" 20%-30% lighter with the same ammo. And it actually hit wher I pointed it. The Taurus had these Heine Straight Eight sights that always shot about 12-18 inches low. GREAT GUN that M&P .40 S&W!
