Hello everyone. I am glad to find a place with other people who enjoy the MP .40. I have had mine for a couple weeks now and I am very satisfied with it. I bought it to replace the Beretta M9 that I will get when I go into the Army in about a year. Shot both the Glock 22 and the XD 40 and I believe that the MP is superior to the others.

Welcome to the forum!



So the army will let you use your own sidearm?



The army also recently purchased 10,000 Ruger P95 pistols. I've owned the P95, but sold it to get an XD40 a year ago. Now I own an XD40, and M&P40. Good choice on selecting the M&P40.

I doubt they will. Also if you get deployed you will have a hard time finding anything nato but 45 and 9mm. When is was in the Marines, about 4 years ago, you had one option, if you got that, besides the A2

The Army has 2 pistols. The M9 berreta, and the Ruger. Seen both in Iraq. Dont like either one too much. Have used the M9 berreta all my military career, about 11 years. Never seen any personell weapons other than a 3 star who had a 1911, dont know the make couldnt see it too well. Special ops groups I saw in Iraq also had glocks. So I know for a fact that you cant use your own weapon. Besides in Iraq dont be the person to bring a pistol to a assault rifle fight.
