Im a bit leerie of new guns, as most have bugs that need to be worked out. I like the design of the MP but im uncertain of their reliability. Convince me!

My M&P has about 2,000 round though it and his has less than a 1,000. Both functioned perfectly after these problems.
Bowie Tactical said:nikon 777- field strip is pretty easy and besides why does anyone make a big deal over field stripping. I don't know of any field stripping competitions and it does not come into play in a gun fight. If it takes an extra second or two to clean your gun big deal. I have 4 M&P's and all have been 100%. I carry one on duty and if you know me that is a huge testiment of how I feel about a gun. I am a Deputy assigned to SWAT and a full time trainer as well as owner of Bowie Tactical Concepts. I do not take my working guns lightly. Also if the name Ken Hackathorn means anything to you he highly endorses the gun and the sheriff's office in Washington County,Ohio, where he is on SWAT also just issued M&P 40's. I seen one guy mention some failures with clean fire ammo. That is not un-commom with many different guns. Not a reflection of the M&P. If you have monitored this site you will know that S&W has already addressed the first gun type problems. Also because of some of the feeling people had about S&W other guns in the past this gun has been put under a micro scope more than most. It has been tortured by many agencies and people like me who need working guns. It has done very well. That's my 2 cents. Good Luck CHECK 360 David Bowie
