    The guy behind the counter told me "there those that have a. 45 and those that wish they have a. 45". He wasn't a fan of 9's to say the least.

    I had him show me a P7M8 at the time.

    I LOL'd

    I do feel I pick pistols with too expensive proprietary mags in the $40+ range which makes me angry. I envision myself sliding through gun fights discarding copious magazines as I go..and feeling the wallet burn..

    Too funny!

    People are like that though, they tend to focus on the 'sexy' risks without realizing what they are doing.

    I used to tell the recruits I taught 'Survival is about surviving all the risks, not just the most dramatic ones.'

    Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President... - Theodore Roosevelt, Lincoln and Free Speech, Metropolitan Magazine, Volume 47, Number 6, May 1918.

    Every Communist must grasp the truth. Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun. Our principle is that the Party commands the gun, and the gun must never be allowed to command the Party Mao Zedong, 6 November, 1938 - speech to the Communist Patry of China's sixth Central Committee

    I am on the shorter side. I carry a P30 in a shorts and t-shirt, no problem. I don't have a gut though. I am still a 31 waist and my shoulders are athletic build. If you have a decent shoulder to waist ratio, you can carry whatever you want, no problem. If I can, I'll take the round capacity and better overall accuracy if there is no penalty any day.

    Re: M&P 2.0 and Glock. I am one of the rapidly vanishing breed that competes in action pistol. For years as an adjunct to my day job, I shot production with a Glock. Once I retired I became more serious about chasing the illusive 1920 score. I talked with a buddy who I was shooting with and he told me, you need to get a more accurate pistol for production or move to metallic sights or open class. Since the last time I had asked him about what it cost to have him build an open pistol the price quote was around $4,300 with the buddy discount, I asked him what he would get for a production pistol. He suggested an M&P 2.0, so I bought one.

    That's for background. Up to that time I'd been shooting 5 to 6 hundred rounds a week out of a Gen 2 Glock 22 with a Lone Wolf conversion barrel. The M&P felt way different. When I first started with it, I would invariably shoot high at speed. I thought it was sights so I chased that for a while, finally started fooling around with the grip adapters, and got it solved with some dremel/sanding work.

    Since then, I've switched back to the Glock, shooting a 19X, although if it wasn't for GSSF, I would have stayed with the M&P2.0.

    Sample of one, but yeah, some folks can tell the difference.
    I get what you are saying. With the 3 different P30 backstraps (VP9 users have the same option), you can easily change your natural point of aim to the one that suits you best. I tried the small backstrap first, because it felt good, but practicing drawing and pointing at home, I noticed I brought it up naturally low. I changed to the large backstrap...bingo...on the money.
