I started a thread over at AR15.com about the US Military Handgun Trials and here is one of the responses I got:



I'm betting on the new Smith and Wesson M&P 45



Everything so far on it has been very positive and they are an american owned and operated company. Dont fool yourselves, that will play a big part in the decision making. As long as its a well made gun and if its at least as good as the HK or the new Glock or Sig it has that advantage




Taken from that Defense Review article :



Provided that the S&W M&P .45 ACP pistol meets all the Combat Pistol (CP) System/Joint Combat Pistol (JCP) System specifications (specs) and requirements (i.e. is reliable and durable under adverse conditions and high round count, accurate enough, adequately corrosion/rust-resistant, can function reliably (and with proper timing) with a silencer/sound suppressor, and has a powerful-enough striker mechanism (for activating rounds with tough primers) with a corresponding trigger pull that's smooth enough and not-too-heavy for accurate and prolific fire in combat conditions, it's going to be tough to beat.

I think this is something we all here go along with.



Now I just hope those that make the decision see it as advantageous to go with an American company.

So I'm guessing this is related to the DOD wanting a new pistol?



I doubt that the M&P will fly, mainly cause there are no manual safetys. If anyone goes with it, might be the special forces.
