Range Report (my new M&P)

Finally got to take the M&P 9C to the range yesterday.

Put 50 rounds through it, of Magtech FMJ's. I would've shot more, but I was a little pressed for time.

Anywho...the gun performed awesome!! Didn't even feel like it needed breaking in, everything moved without a hitch, went bang everytime I pulled the trigger. Accuracy: I couldn't ask for more. I did 12 rounds at 9ft....put them in a fist sized group. Then 21ft....same story, 12 rounds, no strays. Then I moved it out to 30ft, 12 rounds, and the groups opened up a little bit, but not too much. The other 14 rounds I let loose at 45ft. They were a little more widespread, but only 2 shots outside the 8 ring. I blame it on me needing a new eyeglass prescription (or Lasik?).

I'm going to go back this weekend and run about 200 rounds through it, I'm sure it needs it.

All in all....couldn't be happier with it. Recoil was very manageable, followup shots were a breeze, although I didn't try it single handed or offhanded.


The S&W M&P 9C gets a big thumbs up from me.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

I love shooting 9mm, I can make some pretty tight groups with it.

Congrats on the new piece, sounds like you have a good one...

All you gotta do now is find a holster and wait for that little piece of plastic...

I hear there's a gun show in Greenville, and one in Bonham this weekend. I may swing by and check them both out, see what can be had in the way of holsters.

As far as the little piece of plastic, I was doing damn good not thinking about it...then you had to go remind me. Not Cool Man. Lol.

I wonder if it was the ammo you were putting through it?

I was shooting MagTech 9MM FMJ, what were you firing?

It'd be worth the trip just for the entertainment value provided by the locals.
