This is the M&P®9 M2.0™ (Military and Police) from Smith & Wesson, it's a recent updated 2017 pistol from the same company that made the famous .44 revolver from "Dirty Harry". Now they make lighter 9mm polyer striker fire handguns (as in no hammer to cock back) that a lot of people use including some US police departments, LAPD (phasing out), DEA; even champion world class shooter Jerry Miculek uses a slightly modified variant. It's also a popular choice for personal protection among other boring regular people.

These sounds are recorded differently from other offerings: echo room style. I think there's enough gun handling sounds recorded in a crystal clear sound booth. Not all gun fights are clean and outdoors. Sometimes you're doing a short film action sequence inside a tight house that usually has some reverb and your slide releases and reloads with no echo as you hear people yelling down hallways, it can sound out of place. It also happens to be POV style in case you're doing some short film and there's some people wearing police style bodycams.

Recored with TASCAM DR-40 and audio-technica AT835b

Sound unedited as I don't know your vision.

    Wow! This is a bounty of different sounds all in one package, thank you so much!
    The recording is nice and clean which is very much appreciated, but I wish you had done it in a place with less echo, you can hear the reflection from the walls.
    If you record it in a carpeted room or in a place with allot of fabric furniture (preferably behind one of those pieces of furniture :-) even in a closet with clothes, than you'll get rid of that reverb as long as you avoid things like air conditioners, fans, clocks and fridges.
    With that echo in their, it makes it so that the sound is less versatile, because now you can only use it in scenes that are in a room like that one for it to make sense, or quiet enough so that you can't tell if possible, but if you get rid of that echo, than the user can add their own as needed.
    Still very useful though, we can always use more stuff like this on freesound and you really gave us allot, so thank you again for uploading!
