    went to a few of the local shops today and a n.i.b smith and wesson m & p in 357 sig followed me home. 538.00 out the door with 2 boxes of ammo. the only problem that i see is that it is hard to squeeze all 15 rounds into the clips. maybe they will loosen up

    Congrats on the new M & P. Sounds like you got a good deal on it.

    The magazines being hard to load fully is common with new magazines. Load them both fully and leave them that way for awhile and they will become easier to load.

    Leave the 14 rounds in and leave it for a few days and see if you can get that 15th one in. My current pistol was like that but I left the max load and, in about a week, loading became easier.

    Congrates, though. I think I'll wait till that $600 tax rebate 'ill come in, in May, and pick up another pistol.

    Just got a new Sig229 a couple weeks ago. Same problem with the mags. They are very tight, so I left them loaded for a few days. Loosened up enough to load easily now.

    See if there is a speed-loader for your pistol. I know they make 'em for the Glock. ALL brand new mag's will do this, you just need patients and a good thumb.

    Sorry for the late reply. I've bought my leather holsters on Ebay. You'd be surprised what you might find on there.

    When you are posting there is a button to add attachments. Click that and a pop-up appears, there you upload your pictures from where-ever you saved 'em at, on your PC.
