Just joined up here, bought a 9C today. Gotta wait 5 days, don't have my permit to carry yet, probably file for that tomorrow. Pretty excited, first pistol, turned 21 a couple months ago and finally found the money to go out and buy one. Been around guns my whole life, I have a solid understanding of safe firearm use and such. After a couple months of reserach, I finally decided on the M&P. The sthop I bought it from didn't have a 9C last Thursday when I was there, only a 40C, I went in today and they sold me the display model. I wanted one that hadn't been touched, but the guy said he just put it in the case this morning. Doubtful, but I'm sure it'll be fine, I know for a fact that the longest it could have possibly been on display is about 4 days. Oh well. Next pistol will be a M&P45 for sure, these seem to be excellent guns.
