Quick question - I have the M&P Shield in .40 and really like it. I was also thinking of picking up the 9MM since my LGS is running a special. What do you think? Too redundant? Anyone here have both and whatdaya' think?
I want reliability.
I don't care about a few bucks diff in ammo price.
my hand will recover from the recoil abuse of 40.

I don't see why you shouldn't get the nine. I liked my SR9c so much that I got the SR40c. I love both and even though they are different calibers, they are quite similar. Go for what is going to make you happy. That's what it's all about.
You can't go wrong with either caliber. The reason I bought a .40 vs a 9mm was that I already had a stockpile of .40S&W for some of my other guns and didn't want to start over. If 9mms are trending up, that could mean the price of .40S&W may come down and 9mm could get more expensive.
