I am surprised you have the impression that the S&W M&P 9 mm is (potentially) unreliable. Granted, it is a semiauto, but all my experiences with them have been quite satisfying and with no reliability issues at all. The M&P 2.0 series is even better than the original. You may want to (re-)consider them.

I’m a fan of the M&P. Would I go to war with it? Eh… probably not. For carry and defense- yes. It sounds like you want one but have reservations. What about it in particular have you heard?

Thank you @JohnB. I haven’t ruled it out. I am still learning about all different kinds of pistols & have little experience. I do like the M&P & want a reliable pistol.

I’ve heard that the major concern is FTE. Some report up to 4 or 5 per 300 rounds fired. Those who have problems with FTE are written off for a limp wrist grip. Does your grip affect jams?

I have easily put into the thousands of rounds thru M&P’s and do not recall a single malfunction.

If you are worried about grip, the M&P 2.0 series will help some with that.

@byzpilgrim +1 for Robert’s MAC link. Grip truly is everything when it comes to how a pistol was designed to operate. Death grip = problems, especially accuracy. Loose grip= problems to include accuracy and function. Trigger time will find you a happy medium and you’ll learn to clear malfunctions quickly if the latter is an issue. (Always good training).
