    M&p 40

    Well I bought an M&P 40. At first I was going to get it in 9MM but after talking to people I ended up with the 40. I got it with the night sights and the 15 round clips from Bud's gun shop. It is the first handgun I've bought. Did I do the right thing? Now I think maybe I should have got the 9. The pistol should be here within the week. I don't know that XD felt pretty good in my hand too. Crap spending money always makes me rethink stuff.

    Congratulations!

    That is a great gun. Do not rethink it. It should be just fine for you. They are very ergonomic, i think. I would buy one but can't afford it. As far as caliber goes whats the real difference. So long as its just a range gun or if you ever need it for self defense. And the way you went will be a little better for the latter if need be.

    You bought a good pistol and don't look back after all this will not be your last one. Everybody is a little nervous about that first one. Then you go out and shoot it and everything is fine. I'll bet you will buy another one with in three months. Clam down and enjoy it. Good luck.

    i agree, it won't be long before you start looking for your next gun purchase. i suggest you give it a little time first and get to know your m&p. after that you may become interested in another type/caliber handgun than you think you might want right now. once you become comfortable with what you have, you will have a better understanding of what features you want in your next purchase.

    I first bought my XD9 then when the M&P came-out I got one for the wife...it has 3 different size back-straps. So I have one of each and the wife can shoot either one, both feel good in my hands and shoot very well. You made a good choice.
