Hello. I live in western Massachusetts, and just purchased an M&P40C. I was a LEO in the 70's, have been in a public safety related business for 30 years, and am currently licensed in MA, ME, NH, CT, PA and FL. I have a few other S&W handguns including a CS9, 3913TSW, 642CTC and a 41, but regularly carry either a Glock 27 or HK USP40C. As a member of the S&W Shooting Sports Center, I ocassionally get to evaluate new models. I've taken several courses at the S&W Academy using my HK. The new M&P40C will go out for some work after the first of the year. I really like the feel of the gun, but the trigger is a bit too short for me. It will get a trigger job, night sights, plus a CTC laser when it comes out this Spring. I also plan to purchase an M&P45.
