Should be reliable

if not accurate.
Just my experience with S&W autos.
Don't judge it until you put 3 maybe 400 rounds thru it.
They are different.

It's chambered in 9mm, I thought .45 was a bit much for my first gun considering my inexperience.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.

I like the 9 mm round, some do some don't! Arguments abound, good choice and I hope it performs well for you through the ammo trials that are sure to come.

Good job Ooze!

Run as much ammo as you can through it, see what it likes and doesn't like, ball ammo, FMJ, Holllow point, you name it, then you will have a better idea as to a carry ammo.

I was with him when he picked it up in Prescott.. No pics but the story is on here somewhere.. We stopped on the way home and he put have a box of 115 gr FMJ thru it.. Not one miss feed or stove pipe.. Shot to POA and super light weight..

He bought it for his CCW carry piece, and last time i heard still had it and loved it.. I put one magazine thru it, and it was great.. So light weight you dont want much more power than that 9.. Had a bit of a recoil but not bad.. Guessing your going to love it..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I'll echo what LBC said - I've heard nothing but good things about the M&P.
The Sigma's a different story. I've heard very little good about them.

Maybe this is a total noob question but I am a noob so it fits. Included with my gun was a small manilla envelope with a spent 9mm casing in it what is the reason for this?

It's just a

test round to sho you that they had test fired the weapon. Don't know why they feel they have to include one.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!
