This was my first purchase from Bud's. I was a bit skeptical about buying a firearm online but the worries quickly went away once I realized how great the customer service, shipping times, and condition of the firearm was. The firearm itself works like a dream. It does not kick like you would expect a 45 in a compact size to do. It's more of a push into your body than a snap. Very controllable shot. The only con about the firearm imo would be the trigger. It's a bit spongy. An Apex trigger would definitely take that away. Other than that I have no complaints. I use this as my carry gun in a Trex-Arms Sidecar appendix rig and there's times I forget it's there. I have already put close to 400 rounds downrange and not on single mishap. Overall great experience with Bud's as well as the firearm. Will definitely be doing business with Bud's from here on out!

I am very satisfied with my S&W MP45c from Bud's. It is my third M&P having previously acquired a full sized MP40 and an MP40c. The workmanship on the 45c is standard S&W quality, I am a longtime S&W fan. The sights are dead on for me and I have had no failures of any kind, it shoots whatever I put in it. The trigger takes some getting used to compared to a single action like a 1911 but it is easy to master. I am glad I listened to all the recommendations from other users who said 'try it, you'll like it.' I did and I do. You will too.

I have been wanting an M&P45c for some time. I've had a couple of the full size 4.5 inch models, and they have been my all time favorite 45 caliber handgun. While they sacrifice some capacity compared to comparable full size 45 handguns, they more than make up for it with the slimmer frame dimensions, which are very similar if not identical to the 9mm/40 caliber guns. I have handled 45 Glocks and XDm's and found them too portly for comfortable firing. The M&P45 fits the hand exceptionally well though, and they are the softest shooting 45's I've ever fired. In any case, I finally picked up a compact model for somewhat easier carry. I don't think these models are big sellers, as I've never seen one for sale in any of my local gunshops, even the big box places like Cabelas, Academy, and Gander Mt, so I went with Bud's. Size wise they are just about identical to a Glock 19. Though the capacity is only 8 rounds compared to a similarly sized 9mm that holds twice as many rounds, if you consider it compared to a full size 1911 with the same capacity its not bad at all. Carries well IWB. Trigger is so-so at best, but for a carry gun I have no particular interest in doing anything to it. As with my full size models it has been totally reliable with whatever ammo I've put through it. Recoil is a bit more stout compared to the full size models, but still pretty manageable for a 45 in this size. Would highly recommend this if you're looking for a mid sized 45, particularly if you like to carry IWB!

The M&P 45c came exactly as described and arrived at my FFL within 4 days. I shoot alot of Glocks and bought this to try because it is very friendly for left handed people. The gun has an ambi slide catch which I really appreciate, however it is to hard to use as a slide release so I still have to slingshot the slide. (and I am a large/tall person). I tried reversing the mag release and found the release was too far away from my thumb to use reliably. I use the large backstrap so you may have better luck with the medium or small one. The M&P shoots well. I put 200 rounds consisting of 230gr fmj, 230gr hp, and 230 grain fmj reloads. I had zero failures regardless of whether I slow fired ot did a mag dump. The gun was zeroed perfectly out of the box and hit where it was aimed. It is roughly the size of my G19 and has excellent ergonomics. For a 45acp it is a very soft shooter. The trigger is not very good, mine has a heavy gritty pull. This gun was test fired 07-2015 so it is very new stock, but according to the S&W forums the 45 compact still uses the old nasty triggers, the 9mm's get the new good ones. I will be putting an Apex trigger in it soon. If the trigger wasn't marginal I would have given it 5 stars.

Finally shot this M&P 45c,I was impressed in it's performance. No trouble at all. I personally don't know why people complain about the trigger, since it went "bang" every time. Very controllable, fits my hand great, and has a great caliber...45ACP!

Just received my new M&P45c from Bud's last night. It was shipped to my FFL guy in a timely fashion and I received constant updates via e-mail as to my order status. More than satisfied with the experience and will most likely use Bud's again.Now we're off to the range!
