Picked up my new M&P 9MM Pro last Tuesday. About 2 hours before my weekly defensive pistol shoot. Stopped home for a quick take down and lube and off to the range. Yup, shooting it in competition with zero range time. The Pro comes with a green fiber optic front sight and a blacked out rear. I have fiber front AND rear sights on a couple of my pistols and was not sure how I would like the Pro setup. Bottom line, it's real sweet. I like it better that the 3 dot. Maybe it's me and I spend too much time trying to line all the dots but with a single dot just get it in the middle of the rear and squeeze. And really, the kind of competitions I do it's all about the front sight and I think the Pro setup is less distracting. The trigger is very nice and feels a lot lighter than the spec's say it is and I like the small click and feel when it resets. My double taps are more controlled and accurate. The 3/4" longer barrel reduces muzzle flip for me but I have to pay a little more attention to getting the sights on target. Is a longer barrel a little slower to swing around? Fit and finish, flawless. Action, smooth. I didn't burn up the range but I did set one of my best ever times. And with a totally new pistol!
