Gator Guns: S&W M&P9
Don't worry, I don't think I'm going to create a post for every trip to the range. Only for new ranges or new guns and since I'm a beginner, it's all new to me!

I'd have to say that it's not my cup of tea. It's very GLOCK-like, but I think that GLOCK does it better. Overall the GLOCK feels better, but this is starting to confirm my new found love of all metal guns since shooting the Baretta 92FS.
The Beretta was easier to site and shoot (especially the SA shots) and had far less recoil. Only problem is that it just doesn't feel great in hand.
The trigger on the M&P 9 just suuuucks. Seemed to pull it forever and basically had to bring it all the way to the back of the trigger guard.
- Dead center 20+ rounds at 5 yards
- Bottom Left: 5 rds at 5 yards
- Bottom Right: Walther P22 - Did not like!
- Top Left (inverted target - it was bottom right when shot): 5 rds at 5 yards
- Top Right: (inverted target - it was bottom left when shot) 5 rnds at 10 yards - So all those misses were actuall high (not low)
"Ideology deludes, inspires dishonesty, and breeds fanaticism. Facts, experience, and logic are much better at leading you to the truth."
"Despite the conviction and seeming depth of knowledge with which ideologues speak, they are intellectual weaklings--joiners--who defer to systems of belief and charismatic gurus for their ideas." -- Daniel J. Flynn
