It's an M&P. That should tell you all you need to know. Accurate and reliable. Very comfortable. Nice 12 round capacity for a compact. Recessed controls don't get in the way of the holster. Recoil is great for such a small gun. Trigger pull is smooth; even if the reset is hard to judge. It is basically the same as the full size M&P9 that I love. The only reason I don't own this gun right now is I was looking for something smaller as a carry in warm weather. I liked shooting this gun enough that I am now looking for the new M&P Shield, same great gun in a smaller package than my S&W made Walther ppk/s.
