Well if it works for you that's good, but with your arm extended it gives you more responsive positive control of your barrel. Granted i do switch down to how you hold it for room clearing... but that is a bad habit of mine

Love it actually, prefect spot.

For longer pokes I can still extend my arm out on the hand guards if I want.
agree, I normally hold the mag well also its my natural spot.

Well good thing it's not your gun then and it's mine set up the way I like it.

Plus it a carbine not a mid-length. I have maybe 5 more slots forward isn't gonna make much difference.

Plus the gun is set up to just shot from the table with the bipod. I don't do competition with it. And for home defense. I'll have my 1911 or my mossberg alot faster then my AR

I've had mine since last October and its an awesome gun. both the 7 and 8 round mags feel great when shooting (2.5 finger grip on the 7, full grip on the 8 rounder), and it shoots like a champ. trigger is improved from the older m&p guns, and the slim 1.5 stack makes it much more comfortable for concealing. shoots well, Carey's well, and has a lifetime warranty. if you can find one, you've got a great gun. not a safe queen, but a great EDC and shooter

Thanks for the review! When you say it isn't the safest why do you say that? It will be my first handgun so I want to know it inside and out. Thanks!
