bigcelt said:whats funny is some of my e-mails wanting to know why my e-mail has glockdoc in it when i give the glock nazis hell . i had one guy even tell me that they should( in his words) sue my butt for saying negative stuff about glocks and that a M&P will never be half the gun of a glock and i simply asked him if he had ever had any hands on with the M&P and he said and i quote, hell no ! its just a overpriced sigma ! end quote . it never seems to amaze me what idiots come out of the wood work and how shallow thinking some are . as one that owns just about every glock model they have ever made and been through the schools that i dont know what i am talking about ! well even darth vader came back from the darkside. thanks and good shooting .....celt
Well put. I guess I'm guilty of that as well.SquireSCA said:It is not a matter of fear. They like "their team".
It's like picking a baseball or football team. People latch onto brand names like they glom onto sports teams. It becomes THEIR team and they will defend them to the death in some cases.

DesertRat said:Yes indeed, you can. I just got an M&P 40 without the mag disconnect and internal safety. The SKU # is 209300. I asked my local gun store if they could order it. They did. And I have it.There are M&P's out there that are non-LEO that do not have the mag disconnect and trigger safety. I know because I have one. Sure, you may have to order it that way but they can be found. I probably would not have bought one either if that was all I could get.
I did ask if they could order the same M&P, without the mag disconnect and internal safety, but also with Night Sights. But, they said it was LEO.
