took my M&P to the range
#1
So this morning I finally took my M&P to the range. Right away I liked it. Good grip, good grouping. Even firing as fast as I could I still got groups of three or four together. I am surprised how well this gun shoots. I think I shoot better with it than I do with my glocks haha. No problems at all. I should have taken more ammo though :-(. However it started to rain so I don't think I would have stayed longer.

Which model did you get? Also what do you think about the trigger?

I got the Full size 9. The trigger, honestly I had no issues with it. I like it right out of the box. It didn't feel "Gritty". But granted the only other triggers I know are Glocks.

The only issue I had was being used to a 15 round mag, and I count when I shoot sometimes, and I would stop at 15 and go "oh right" and shoot two more.

I used to be a die-hard Glock guy..... Until my first M&P purchase. Now I own the M&P 9c and 45c. I have a Shield on order and will eventually get the .22 pistol. In my opinion the M&P is everything Glock is but with interchangeable grips and looks much nicer.

I've been shooting and carrying a Glock 27 for years. However, my first day shooting my 9c and I was shooting it much better than the Glock.

I shot the full sized .40 cal m&p and I didn't really like the contours of the trigger (I thought it hugged my finger too much). I came very close to buying the m&p 9c, but I picked up a Ruger SR40c instead. Don't get me wrong, I love the size and trigger of the sr40c, but I might try shooting the m&p 9c. I really liked the grip on the firearm. Even if I get rid of the sr40c for the m&p 9c, I believe all my holsters for the sr40c are compatible with the m&p 9c, but don't quote me on that.

I like my full size 45 quite a bit. I dropped the Apex duty/carry kit into it immediately after purchase, my only experience with the stock trigger was drying firing prior to the swap. My first few outings with it were wonderful, very accurate and I enjoyed the trigger. Granted it wasn't like a 1911 or the SRT in my Sig 220, but it was nice for a plastic gun, especially compared to Glocks. Well, then I went out and bought a g23 and put a Fulcrum trigger in it. That was the only pistol I shot for two months. Recently I tried taking my M&P out again and had a very difficult time with the trigger. I still like it very much, but apparently I need to pull it out of the safe more and give it some love because I have forgotten how to shoot it.

Glad you like it, M&P's are very popular for a reason.

I love my M&P9 and 9c. I heard a rumor the newer production M&Ps have a better, not so gritty, trigger.

I have an M&P9c and its pretty nice and shoots well. It has jammed on me though and my Glock has never jammed so I am more partial.

According to that packet that has a used casing, it was stamped July 2012 so I assume it's very new. I put it on lay-a-way like the second week of august.

What were you shooting? I used American Eagle.


I got my holster yesterday. Safariland 6378. $39 plus shipping. I was going to get a serpa like I have for my glocks, but I wanted something different. I like it a bit better. Some wiggle room but I haven't gotten a chance to play with the retention screw yet. I'll do a review on that soon.
