In the past couple of days I've talked a couple of folks into buying M&P's. One was the usual at work "which gun for self-defense?" question. I suggested he try a few and the one that felt best. Casually mentioned the ergonomics of the M&P. This morning he told me it felt so much better than the glock, he bought one.



The second was a fellow at the range shooting a glock. Suggested he try my M&P. All I got was a "wow" and a smile.



Probably won't get a range report from buyer one. He has a Redhawk he bought for defense, loaded it and put it in a drawer 25 years ago. The pistol hasn't been fired. Same thing will probably happen to the M&P.

There are at least eight members on m4carbine.net that "blame" me for talking them into trying and buying the M&P :twisted:

A number of people who are members at my range have bought M&P's after trying mine. I bought my second .45 at Sportsmen's Warehouse and the sales guy who sold it to me ended up buying one. :wink:



Almost all were converted from Glocks and two from Sigs.

To a great extent I think it is a matter of fit and feel. I haven't seen anything "wrong" with the glocks, Sig's, XD's and CZ's I've fired. Just happen to like the M&P better, although I would be sorely tempted to buy a CA75 if I came across one when price met mood. The answer to "which one is better" I will leave that never-ending argument to the experts.

Wouldn't "Referral Bonuses" be great? My S&W initiate has gotten rid of two great firearms in exchange for an M&P9 (per my suggestion) and most recently and M&P15 AR. I've created a MONSTER!!!! :twisted:

Yeah, something simple like upon confirmation of the purchase, the "salesperson" gets a free magazine or something like that.



I have done the same with both my PX4 and the M&P. When I let people try them out at the range, 9 times out of 10 they purchase one before leaving the store.

My son let me try his M&P40 and the rest as they say is history. Love the gun and it fits me great. Now if I could learn to hit the broad side of a barn, but that is another story.................. LOL!

I haven't had the opportunity to be around anyone shooting an M&P .45. Probably a good thing because I might be tempted and I've just had the opportunity to be around my youngest's tuition bill.
