How about the 5" M&P Pro?

I have several M&Ps, all apexed.  The 2.0 triggers in the 3 I have shot may be a little better than the 1.0 but not much. I just finished apex on a 2, big improvement.  I would get a deal on a standard 1.0 and apex it, including the barrel.  I have tried 320s and xdm.  Firmly a MP fan.

That's what I was hoping to hear. Thanks. would you get the standard 4.25" over the 5" for the $$$ savings?

I have both and enjoy shooting both.  Honestly, I can't tell you I see a big difference, especially shooting IDPA.  It may be more in my mind, but I shoot the 5" mostly, and that is the one I put the apex barrel in.  Naturally have more $ in it.  I use a Dawson FO front, but just put a yellow Ameriglo TCAP on a 4" and will shoot it more now.  For 3/4" I don't think it really matters especially if the money is right.  IF $ are the deciding factor go 4" and put the extra money in the Apex products for an overall better gun.

Alright, Cabelas has a 4.25" M&P9 new for $299, free ship to store plus rebate! I just need to figure out how to buy since they dont have a TN store. They say it has to ship to store. :wall:

Sounds like a road trip to Bristol or chattanooga.  Great price though

I'm not sure the Chattanooga Cabelas will sell it to me since they are technically in GA. I tried to order it, and it wouldnt let me. I'm going to call them. I also found a used police trade in somewhere else for the same price with more mags. Are the older M&P's just as good as a new one if I'm going to Apex it anyway?

They'll have to send it to an FFL in GA and you do a background check and pick it up there. If they'll do that.

      I went to the range yesterday morning for the first time since my surgery.  It has been over seven weeks since I fired a shot.  I took this old Super Blackhawk:
       

       
      I've been shooting close up, duelist style; that is standing, one handed, as ranges not over ten yards, and using a six inch stick-on Shoot -N-See target.  I had figured a pretty bad outing, for lack of practice for so long.  Much to my surprise, I didn't do too badly.  Shooting at eight yards, twenty-five rounds went through the black, and left a large jagged hole.
       
      Why did I do so well?  Well, I did spend considerable time dry firing.  This helped keep my muscle tone and my concentration up to par, and I'm sure that dry firing practice did keep me in shape.

      Hey guys, I just picked up a new PMR-30 and took it out for testing yesterday.  Out of the first magazine I had at least 6 rounds that would not fire.  I'm using one of their recommended ammo's (in the manual).  The Winchester Super X 40 grain.  I realize testing a different ammo type is next up, but I'm just wondering if any of you have experience with this gun and have comment.  Is there something I can look at or check for issues here?  Feeling disappointed that this new gun is acting up like this.

      I have a M&P Shield 9mm with the thumb safety. I prefer a thumb safety, but the thumb lever is too small to hit reliably 100% of the time, so I don't carry it. Is there an aftermarket part for this or does anyone have a fix? 
      Something like the manual safety on the M&P 45 or the Taurus Millennium G2 would be ideal. It doesn't need to be a 1911-type lever.
