Just joined tonite. When I bought my M&P 9mm last week, I was really looking at the Beretta Storm and the FNP (and maybe the CZ 75). The guy at the gunshop "made" me handle the M&P, and it just felt right. I had been looking for a reaonably priced 9mm to join my SIG 229 SAS, Taurus PT 1911, and the Three Amigos (Ruger/Buckmark/Colt 22 lr's). Traded in three less than satisfactory previous purchases, added $70, and here I am. First range trip coming up thursday, and I'm really looking forward to it. I already have an Insight X2L light/laser, so once I know I can count on the M&P, that's the new "housegun" combo.
