Finally got to monkey finger one today. Sweet. Thin grip, nice 3 dot sites, a flush mag and an extended mag. The trigger is much better than the full size M&Ps, with a clear reset. I understand that this nice trigger will be standard on all future M&Ps, all sizes. $399. Pretty much the saize of the G26/27/33, but it's the thin slide and grip that are what stand out.
I don't think that it would be suitable for pants pocket carry, but coat pocket should work with the flush magazine in it. I know the question will be is it a true alternative to a S&W 5 shot, 38 caliber revolver. In my opinion no, but it IS an alternative to the bigger "snubnose" revolvers such as a Det. Special or Ruger SP101.
My personal problem is the store gets them in and sells them before they even hit the display case
