Hello all. I have been lurking around the forum for a while, so I thought I should sign up. I am currently in the Air Force doing my short tour (How a year away from your family is short I'll never know). I was researching a handgun to purchase when I get back to the states for concealed carry and I think I have decided on the M&P in .40. Although I have never seen or held one in person, all of the reviews I have found have been very positive. I have enjoyed the post on this forum and it has just reinforced my decision to get the M&P.
