I've had my S&W 915 for about ten years now. I have NO complaints at all with this pistol (O.K., maybe it's a little heavy). But, it runs fine, shoots to point of aim, shows minimum wear, takes down easy, and it looks pretty good too!

So, when I held an M&P 9mm yesterday at Gander Mountain, I really liked what I felt. Excellent grip, light weight, good sights, decent price and many good reviews lately. As a concealed carry gun, it should fit my needs. What's not to like?

But, I still can't justify buying one when my trusty 915 continues to perform to my satisfaction. Besides just giving in to New Gun Envy, why should I get the M&P?

The M&P is a great pistol, but if your 915 works for you, I can't tell you any reason to replace it.



Now, if you just want to buy a nice new gun, get the M&P.

I'd say keep the 915 and get the M&P as well. I've got a 5906 that I have had for almost 15 years, and it still runs like a top. I love the M&P so far, but I would never get rid of my 5906 by choice.

So, get the M&P40...then you'll still have your trusty 915, plus be able to enjoy the M&P in .40 caliber. I have the M&P40, plus I just picked up a 5946, which I dearly love shooting...I've done a lot of buying & trading over the years, but I can't see myself selling either of these guns, or my 4566, even after I acquire the M&P9 and M&P45, and the compact versions, too...

Thanks for your replies and comments. I think I'm going to take a hard look at the M&P Compact in 9mm. It looks like it will suit my needs as a concealed carry gun. I just need to hold it and feel the weight & grip & check out the sights. I'm not in a rush to decide...unless someone has a really low discounted price, then my self control goes out the window!!
