I just now bought a S&W M&P 9 mm semi-auto. I am getting night sights for it-those will come in about a week. I really like the changeable backstraps so that you can adjust the grip for small, medium, and large hands. How come everybody does not do this? And the gun is reasonable in price. The grips on my Glock are like holding a small board. I checked online to see if there were any problems with the gun. Some people claimed that a person needed a crowbar to load the 16th and 17th rounds in the magazines. Those people must have very weak fingers because I handloaded all three magazines with 17 rounds and these are brand new magazines. One magazine was very easy, one was kind of tough with round 17, and one was tough with both rounds 16 and 17. But I got the rounds in. Once the magazines are broken in they should be no problem. And they should be easy to take apart and clean. Glock magazines are terrible to try to disassemble. Some people claimed online that the the slide stop was hard to engage when there was no magazine in the gun. It was kind of hard until I had taken the gun apart and cleaned and lubricated it. The slide squeaked until I had the gun cleaned and lubed. There was some kind of black protective stuff in the gun. It was hard to remove from the gun barrel bore. I used Hoppes Elite gun cleaner and Breakfree to clean and lubricate the gun. I have not shot this gun yet. A woman I work with has a S&W M&P and she let me shoot her gun. The gun shoots really good. I was able to get just two boxes of 9 mm ammo for the gun. I will not be able to go shoot it until Sunday.
