The New Military & Police
This may be an excellent pistol. This post is not about the pistol though. Call me old fashioned. This post is about a company using their legacy of fine firearms which they can no longer produce to label new products.
The Smith & Wesson M&P is a wheelgun. Six rotating chambers. Blued steel and walnut. Not plastic. Not reciprocating action. This plastic fantastic is not the Smith & Wesson M&P's descendent, but rather an imposter that would take on a mantle it does not deserve. In many ways it reminds me of a certain Massachusetts senator prancing around with his hero buttons in a 2004 Presidential bid. For me, that is enough to turn off any enthusiasm for this pistol.
