S&W M&P40 Shield 6+1/7+1 40S&W 3.1"
by Michael W Date Added: Monday 07 April, 2014
Fast shipping from Buds, as always. Got to the range this weekend and immediately this little gem became my new, favorite carry weapon. For a 40, it had a lot less recoil than I had imagined...dead accurate out of the box. The trigger pull is crisp, definitive and not at all a long travel as I was expecting. As this was my first M&P product, I read the manual cover to cover...glad I did as the breakdown was something I wasn't familiar with versus my Bersa Thunder and Beretta 96. The thumb safety, though a low profile, actually is not that hard to flip up for me, but I can see where someone with larger fingers might encounter a bit of difficulty. Now, I have heard many schools of thought of reloading and releasing the slide...some say use the catch, others say pull the slide back and release. This gun, you cannot, at least I can't, just flip the release lever seems designed to only pull the slide back and release once reloading a new magazine. When loading a full magazine with a closed slide, it requires much more effort to push the magazine in to lock in place versus slide open. For my hand, the extended magazine works best versus the 6 round, but I can shoot it accurately either way. Overall, a great gun and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a compact, reliable, well made weapon with some punch!
