Default M&P M2.0 5" fde

So after a month and around 1000rd I have to say this firearm is my new favorite. I've shot several different ammo's through it without a hiccup. Its just a blast to shot and I"m a big fan of fde. The free mags and defense ammo were a big plus when purchasing this firearm. I think its defiantly a keeper and may do the Apex flat trigger when it comes out.

I got the holster from Swift Draw holsters. I was looking for something small and came across it on eBay. I contacted them before purchasing and they are awesome to deal with. I received it three day and it's easily a $60-70 holster for $40. Can't recommend them enough.

I've only gotten 250 round through my 5" FDE, but like you it has become my favorite. I'm a 3rd Gen guy but this pistol is amazing. Waiting for the 2.0 Compact to come out. I bought a Cleveland Kydex IWB holster for it and carry it more than I thought I would.

Very nice-while I think fde is so ugly I got a really good deal on a nib VTAC ahahahahaha. Can't wait to get my grubby mitts on it next week. I was going to get a 2.0 but this one was too cheap to pass up.

Great looking holster too!

I'm a sucker for the FDE as well. If it weren't for the thumb safety I likely would have gotten one instead of my standard, black 2.0.

I easily removed the safety on mine. I would have prefered black melonite but once I held it, it was all over

here's a blog post from Apex about an update on the new triggers: Page not found – Apex Tactical Specialties

Just added this to my collections of S&W's.

Also, added the MP15-22 a few weeks back as well. Damn things are so cheap right now its hard to pass up.

Normally I avoid Tupperware but this model called to me. Quickly becoming my favorite at the range. Runs great, very accurate, easy to clean, good feel, fit, and finish.
