9mm & 40 Caliber....

I answered "more than one" . I have a full sized 40 & a 9mm compact. I'll be buying the 45 when it comes out.

I have the M&P full size 9mm.

Usually shoot 1911's in .45 & 40 s&w.

Thought the 9mm might be fun to shoot and it was cheap ,just like 9mm ammo. lol

Just bought the 40 Compact... can't wait to pick it up tomorrow! Thinking I may want a 9c and the 45 as well.

M&P9 and M&P9c never had a 9mm before these two. I bought my wife a Glock 19 and just had to have a 9mm or two of my own.

I have the 40c, to complement my Glock 19. I had the larger 9mm, so I thought I would enjoy the 40S&W in the smaller version for easier concealed carry.

I was really going to get the .40 when I went to the gun shop, but then it struck me. I already have a 9mm, and do I want to start stockpiling another caliber of ammo. Besides, I, unlike a lot of other people, have complete confidence in the caliber.

I agree.

.40 Compact, already had a concealable 9 (3953) and already have a full size .40 (CZ) so it wasn't a matter of having to have another caliber. I have confidence in the 9 and a little More in the .40 :wink:

AS I mentioned in another thread...



Unfortunately, pistol calibers are only barely marginally effective manSTOPPERS to begin with. Any caliber can kill - though it usually takes some time - too much time (slow bleed out, infection, etc.), but to STOP a threat RIGHT NOW (which is the defensive objective) is not so easy to achieve... especially with smaller calibers.



S&W did such an amazing job of making the recoil mild in the M&P 40 Compact (it is remarkable how mild shooting the .40 C is). It must be the combination of springiness of the frame and the low bore axis). For these reasons, I see going directly to the 40 as something of a no brainer. Not that the increase in potency over a hot 9mm +P is huge, but it is significant. Of course, I would not volunteer to be shot at with a 9mm... And the 9C does hold 2 more rounds than the 40C, which is never a bad thing. Somewhat close call between the 9 and the 40, but the 40 definitely gets the nod for my money. I'm still amazed and scratching my head over how mild the recoil feels with the 40C.

I just picked up the M&P 40 - wanted a sidearm that packed a punch, but also had mag volume.



Fit right in between the .45 and 9 mm

9mm for me ... use it in USPSA production and IDPA. Plan to get another of the same ... then maybe a .45.
