Recently purchased a new m&p and have put about 400 rounds through with no problems. I also shoot a glock 17 and have found that I love the feel of the m&p is so much better.like Luke the only thing I wish I could change is getting it with night sights. Other than that this is the gun I would recommend to beginners or experienced shooters. Its and all around great gun. Its easy to disassemble clean and reassemale with no problems.
