Well I got a M&P as a back-up for my 24/7 9mm that had to go back to Taurus. Still like the 24/7's grip and sights better. The M&P is easier to conceal which is a givin being a compact. The only problem in the first 200 rounds about 3 times the slide locked back with one round still in the magazine. Over on the M&P forum they say it works itself out once everything is broke in so we'll see. All in all it's a good little gun glad I made the purchase so far. For a compact accuracy is great and recoil is not a problem(better then Glock). But I really want my Taurus back.

Funny there is other guns that have problems, just seems you can't convince others of that. Hope you get your Taurus back soon and all is well.

I don't recall details but I think there's a rebate deal for M&Ps until the end of the year. I think it equates to free magazines. If you haven't heard about it you might want to poke around and see what you can find.

I HAD a M&P 40C up until a couple months ago. I put over 1500 rounds through it and the slide would lock rearward just as yours does. Needless to say I got rid of that one. I thought I was the only one with that problem cause everyone I told said I was nuts.

Well, you may still be nuts but I can believe that any given example of a gun (or any mechanical device) can have issues.

This is true....however they thought I was nuts on the basis the M&P series pistols are flawless. Obviously no firearm is perfect---all level headed folks know that. But it did happen to me and friends of mine in LE refused to believe me. And no, I couldn't demonstrate the malfunction to them since they're in NYC and I'm in AZ.

See gents that's why I get on my :soapbox: I would bet that you didn't get on the net and say they were a "POC". Sometimes if you search enough you can find a smater group of people. All things made by man and operated by man is going to fail.
