Cover Gun on 11/2010 Issue?

What is that handgun on the cover being held by Pat Rogers?
I just can't identify it.

My guess is a S&W M&P in .45 ACP

Thanks! Now that I can compare it to a web photo of an M&P 45, I can see the various traits.

There does seem to be a puzzling rectangular indentation on the right side of the receiver, behind the weapon light, which I don't see in the internet photos.

Maybe a serial number stamp?
