I. Am. In. Love

So I went in to pick up my M&P9c today and a few hundred rounds of some 115gr PMC ball ammo went with me.

At first I figured I would strip it and give it a quick cleaning, but when I inspected the internals with the slide back I noticed a good coat of lubricant on the barrel already. I stuck my finger in and checked only to find that it appeared that either the LGS I picked it up at cleaned and oiled it for me or S&W did. Either way I used a pin to drop a little more CLP onto the slide and worked some around under the rail and internals with my pinky.

With everything I had read and heard about this weapon I really wasn't worried about doing more than that.

Then I got into the range and set myself up with the target out to just 10 yards. I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of recoil, but I usually fire my Kimber in .45, so I wasn't worried about it.

I was surprised, to say the least. I've fired a LOT of different 9's and even compared to some full-sized offerings this thing has pretty tame recoil at 115 gr. And the sights...oh man, the sights. So easy to make follow-up shots that I decided to 'Mozambique' the dangerous paper men a few times just because I was that comfortable almost right out of the gate.

I only had time to feed it 100 rounds, but it didn't have any issues. Not one single failure and I didn't even break it down before firing it. Though to be fair I should mention again that it looked like someone else had already cleaned and oiled it (lightly).

This is after the first 2 mags at 10 yards:

I'm seriously surprised at how great the compact handled and how accurate it was. I'm going to have to get a holster to carry it in. Probably give it some Hornady TAP.


I have to wonder what was on that HD that you DEFINITELY did not want anyone else to see.

Good to hear you are enjoying your M&P so far.

Keep shooting the M&P. The trigger will get better and you will hit anything you aim at.

The trigger really wasn't bad while shooting. It's weird, but when I dry fire it the trigger has a bit of grit right as it hits the break point. However, when I'm actually firing it I don't notice it at all. Even then it feels like it's smoothened out a bit in just the first 100 rounds.

I'll have to get a little more practice so i'm not pulling it left, but it's not too bad as it stands. Otherwise the accuracy is VERY surprising for a 3.5 inch barrel.

I didn't take any pictures, but I was still getting respectable groups at 15-20 yards. I doubt I would even try to hit anything at 25+ with a 9mm.

Shoot out to 100 yards. Screw the in your face close stuff. Practice out there for your basic's. It will make you a better close in tight shooter. We have to have fun!

Keep shooting the M&P. It will reward you with bull's. And when your muscle memory kicks in you will beable to bump fire at will. Double and Triples like you never imagined. M&P shooters don't need a hard "CLICK" feely touchy reset. Ask anybody thats been in a gun fight if "Click" saved there life.

You will never get rid of the grit you feel. It can be made better. Much better. But a basic M&P trigger breaks.

Glock is smooth mush from start, break and over travel. With a click thats as stupid as has any nut cares to explain. Once your in the zone with a M&P be it roll your own or Apex. With a Glock you have to roll your own fulcrum trigger or pay more than the pistol is worth for a near real trigger.

I would give a nut for a M&P 10mm. Well not really,,, but I would buy one. But Smith is not going to make one. :( I spent a hour with a Smith Rep when I bought my BG .380. They are now a mainstream make the bucks Yankee Co. IE MIN and no classic weapons of the modern times. Ir's a MasterCard and Visa World. Want to be shooters filled with folks that buy guns for mental health. :(

Not to shoot.
