Wanted to give a little report on the M&P compared to a Glock. for kicks and grins I borrowed an M&P 40 to runit throught my qualification course for my PD. I carried a .357 till about three days ago then went back to my .40 long story. Anyway course is as follows: 30 yards 6 rounds, mag change 6 more rounds in 30 seconds. 20 yards 6 rounds, mag change 6 more rounds, 20 seconds. 10 yards 6 rounds, mag change 6 rounds, 15 seconds. Load remaining rounds in second mag, 5 yards 6 rounds, mag change fire all remaining rounds 8 seconds. we use a modified b.27 style target, has no numbers listed but looks just like a b-27. Our agency and several others don't score by numbers, court liablility issue, longer story. Anyway 48 out of 60 must be fairly center mass of the body. I ran the course with my Glock 23, all 60 were in what would normally be the X, and 9 ring areas. No FTF/FTE. what a suprise for a Glock right. OK now for the M&P. Same course of fire, no FTF/FTE. Score was about the same, grouping was better with the M&P. No issues of any kind. Couple of our swat guys were there and tried it out. Nothing but positive comments. everyone who picked it up liked it. One guy there carries a S&W 19, we give him hell about it all the time. He even like the pistol and shot it well. He said see it took "smith" to make a plastic pistol right. All in all nothing spectacular about the outing, but that is what you want in a good reliable duty weapon, everything just needs to work all the time.
