I purchased my M&P 40 to become my primary carry gun and am SO glad Icould not find what I was looking for. I also own an EMP in 40 and love it too anad was my #1 go to gun, but sorry Springfield the M&P will see action everytime I go on duty and your gun is now bedside company. Just can't imagine how easy the transition from 1911 to DA only was and shootability is BOSS as is the accuracy. Qualified with it after only 250 rounds down the pipe also no failures which is a resonating theme here in the reviews. Mark this one down as a "must get". Next year I'll give you a duarability rating as 250 round is not the standard I am comfortable rating from. Just really great feel fit and value to me.
