Hello all,



Ive been around watching this site and gathering info on the M&P 40c. I decided to buy it and share my story and thoughts on my new toy.



First of all I narrowed my choices down to the XD 40c and the MP 40c. The MP just fit me better. I have heard others complain about XD's customer service and others boast about how good S&W has been to deal with. The MP is made in America, so thats cool too.



Well, I decided to buy the MP 40c. I had been looking around town to find one. The only place I had seen one in stock was at the Scottsdale Gun Club. This was before my decision was final however, and that one slipped away. I had been calling them to see if I could catch one. No luck for about two and half weeks. Then I decieded to pop in there just to look at some other stuff and would check if they got one in. Well I pulled up and there was a Smith and Wesson Banner out front. So I start thinking right away there must be a Rep inside. I was right. They also had 4 MP 40c's and I got to fondle the new 45 a bit. I chose a 40c with a cool serial number and signed the papers as fast as I could. Since the rep was there showing off their stuff they had the 40c marked down 25 bucks. $475 plus tax. They gave me a Smith and Wesson Extreme ops knife, (I already had a better extreme ops knife with a switchblade) and a bag that had the S&W logo on it. Couple of range passes (since im not a member there yet).



I took the gun to Shooters World yesterday with a buddy of mine. I have to say I am really impressed with the acuracy of this pistol. I cleaned and Lubed the gun before shooting it. The trigger is amazing considering what I have read about others. The reset could use a tiny bit of help but I dont think Im gonna mess with much more than that. I put 98 rounds through it, (courtesy of my buddy taking a couple rounds to put through his baby desert eagle) so my last clip was only 8 rounds. I used a fresh target so I could post a pic with no confusion here. The very bottom hole is actually two rounds if you look close enough. I shot this target at 7 yards (21 feet) since I figure thats about where most people with be concerned with their CCW's. This is my new CCW. Oh yeah, this was with the worlds worst ammo, I mean 180 gr fmj Wolf ammo. Also this was with the short mag.(no pinky extention).



I only had one problem but I think it was my fault. The slide locked back on round 5, clip 3. I think my thumb actually caused this. There was no FTF or FTE. When it locked back I quickly depressed the slide lock and it fed the next round with no problem.



Anyhow, Thank you all for having me, and im sure I will be around. I should have at least 500 more rounds through this little peice of heaven in the next month. I will update any new info, good or bad soon.

Nice report and nice target. Obviously the weapon and the operator were doing their job well!

Congratulations on your new 40c.

Pokk... congrats... yes, the 40C was much more appealing to me than the XD 40 Compact I considered... I dont regret the purchase at all. Now at 650 rounds or so and the trigger is so sweet! Very accurate as well. Enjoy your 40C.
