So I just got my first handgun after researching and renting several models.

Some of the models tried recently were the Glock 22, Sig 226, and an HK USP .45. I also wanted to try a Taurus 24/7 pro and the M&P .40, but didn't have time to run around to diff shops to rent them. After holding one at the local shop and having seen their ad for 479 I bought my M&P .40 tonight after reading all the great reviews and praise for it. I really hope this first purchase lives up to all the hype.

I passed up a Sig 229R .40 for this one due to the excellent ergonomics, price point, and the S&W promotion for 2 free mags if purchased before the end of June. Glad to see there's a dedicated forum for this pistol. Time to read on!!

WELCOME

welcome to the forum greenpea76



The M&P is my first firearm as well.



I had looked at the XD and a whole bunch of 1911's but in the end was sold on the M&P (I got mine in 9mm) because of its great reviews; ads in my father's NRA magazine (he's not a gun owner but joined the NRA for political reasons); its internal safety features; and the fact that my local gun shop had it on sale for $399.



Now its the gun that I compare all other firearms to...and it always comes out on top.

Congrats. It's a fine gun indeed. The Sig 229 is also I great gun... as well as the S&W 1911s. You can't just have one and be satisfied.
