    I do have a con for the M&P9 (don’t know about the M&P.40 personally, but I assume it is the same). I’ve owned 2 different generations of this gun and both have had this issue. The polymer tactical rail is reenforced and better now, but will still warp from heat if you put a lot (more than 30 less than 100) of rounds through it a one time. The closer I got to 100 rounds the more it started to jam. The warp causes an impedance with the slide action and excessive friction. I owned a sigma 9 before the two M&P 9s and it had the same problem. I thought it was because the sigma line was so cheap and upgraded to the M&P. Also, I’ve had problems with aftermarket clips for the M&P. Jams frequently. I tried multiple brands, capacities and types of rounds. It turns out the inexpensive ProMag brand I got from Cheaper than Dirt jams the least frequently. It was the highest cap at 32 rounds, and was flawless as long as I did not load all 32. When I put the original clip back in, it is right as rain ’till the rail heats up and starts to warp.

    On a personal note:
    My Sig P226 is the most comfortable and accurate 9mm I own.
    My Glock 19 gen4 is my favorite due to ease of use/maintenance ( ghost lightened trigger & tritium sights)
    I no longer own any S&W semi-autos, but my model 60 .357 with wood handles and 3″ barrel is the most solid and dependable gun I own.
