Things I liked:I work as a Firearms Instructor at a nuclear power plant. I got this as a training alternative for a live fire weapon. I agree there is no better training than live fire but this may be the next best thing,it is an inexpensive safe alternative. There are some people that for many reasons either can't or won't buy a real gun. This replica gives them a great way to get a realistic grip, stance and site picture and because it is a replica of a duty weapon it fits in the duty holster. Which gives them the ability to practice their draw. I have had a few student that were average shooters, bring their scores way up by practicing the right way, slowly, until they were shooting nice small groups with the bb gun. Then they transfer those same fundamentals to the live fire weapon and they are spot on. Things I would have changed:I would make the other size grips available to alow for different size hands. One of the great things about the M&P pistol is the versatility of the grip panel. I would pay a couple extra bucks for another grip as an extra feature that way it does not affect the price of the gun. Not everyone would need it. What others should know:It has really good accuracy for what it is made for. Mkae sure you always have a proper backstop and know your surroundings before pulling the trigger
Things I liked:Work great with my M&P. Flawless function. A must have for endless backyard fun. Things I would have changed:put a small rubber pad on the bottom to aid in seating the magazine during rapid mag changes.
