Default Smith & Wesson M&P 45

New addition and first 45.

Iíve been meaning to get this on-line, but never seem to find the time to do it.

I got a call last week from a friend of mine that was in a bind and needed some money. So whatís a friend to do but try and help out.

Meet the latest addition.

I havenít had any time to shoot it. But I did manage to get 5 outside night before last and cycle a few rounds through it just to say that I did.

Iíve shot 45s before, but this is the first one Iíve ever owned and my first impression is really good. The trigger pull was lighter than I expected after reading some of the reviews on here. And the first 5 rounds down the pipe seemed accurate enough at 20 feet.

Congrats there Troy, I think you will really enjoy that M&P .45 and it's performance. It's one of the few poly guns I really like. Enjoy!

Congrats on joining the M&P clan! Nice shooting, too.

The magazine disconnect adds to the gritty feeling of the trigger, so none of that for you.

Congrats Troy,
I expect you are truly going to enjoy this pistol. I've owwned two of them and they have been my pirmary CC for six + years now. The first one is now my son's, the second I still CC most of the time. I had the trigger worked on the second to remove some of the slack and reduce the pull a bit, my son likes his as is. He thinks mine is a bit light on the trigger for a striker fired pistol. Either way it's the best polly frame 45 on the market IMHO.

Good deal, Troy. I will be adding an M&P45 to the pile 'o guns at Chez Rock. The ones I've used have been awesome.

Congrats on the purchase, and if I may say so, you're a darn good friend. =P

I love my M&P, and I'm sure you'll love yours.

Great handguns. I'm sure you will enjoy it for a long time to come.
