Hi, I've been reading this forum for some time, and finally got around to registering. I am a police officer / firearms instructor for a small department in Ohio. I've owned an M&P .40 for over a year and I think it's a fantastic pistol. Last week, I transitioned my PD to M&P .40's, and most of the officers are equally impressed with it. I'm looking forward to exchanging information here, and thanks to all for having me aboard.
