lol I was just teasin'. Sorry I can't provide any input; I've never fired one. People say good things about them, though...
I have a M&P9 and I really like it. The interchangable grips work well and allow you to fit the gun to your hand and I've put 500+ rounds through mine without a hiccup. Not the greatest trigger, but that can be fixed.
what problems do you see with the trigger and what can be done about and have you done anything to yours

I have an M&P9 as well. I've never had any problems with the trigger. What's up with yours?

The M&P is a great pistol. I've shot them in .45 and 9mm and both are fantastic weapons. They fit both my and my wife's hands the best -- much better by far, than everything else we've held. It's solid, reliable, and shoots very, very accurately.
the M&P pistols work if you can't go with a Glock. There have been few issues that S&W has more or less worked around.
Is there a specific reason you need a .40 cal?

I won't buy one, but it's obvious some people like it. I don't care for the trigger too much. But hey, S&W ain't new to the game of making good firearms.
i just like the caliber it does all i need and more 9 is ok but after shooting a 40 or 45 9just feels like a 22 to me but again that is just what i like and may not be for everyone

I don't really know the specific terms to describe it but I find that it's fairly smooth for the first part of the trigger pull until it hits a noticable (to me) "stop", then it's another distinct pull to the break. In my admittedly limited experience it seems that most guns with a "safe action" type trigger (M&P, Glock, XD) behave in a similar way but when I slowly dry fire the gun I can see that the pressure involved to get from the "stop" to the break causes the gun to "move" more (based on the movement of the front sight) when compared to my Glock and XD. I really wouldn't have noticed it all that much, if at all, had I not done the comparison with those 2 guns but after doing so I did see a difference. I've considered taking it in for a trigger job in the hopes of getting a smoother, ideally more continuous trigger pull but honestly it's not objectionable enough to really justify that.
It's a minor quibble and preference more than anything so take what I say for what it's worth. Of my M&P, XD, and Glock the M&P feels the best in my hand and that is more important to me than a minor, subjective difference in trigger pull. If you like the feel of the M&P then I say go for it.
