Just joined the board. 54 years old. Refinery management guy from Deer Park Texas. Have owned and enjoyed a full sized M&P 9 since before Christmas 2006. Browsing the web for info on the M&P 45 and found this website. Have roughly 3000 rounds through my M&P without any failures. Hope to be able to contribute to the board. Have 45 years of mostly rifle and pistol with some shotgun experience. I feel reasonably sure to have a M&P45 in the next couple of days.
