For your first handgun those are excellent results! Congratulations and keep practicing. Also, try different brands and weights of ammo - All guns have their preference for ammo, you just need to experiment a little! If you shoot a lot you will probably want to get into reloading - this will save you tons of money and allow you to customize your ammo for your shooting pleasure.

Thanks RL! BTW it was range ammo...Winchester White Box.

Reloading has already peaked my interest for sure in this ammo market.

I've bought approx. 1500 rds. of the WWB .40 155 and 165gr. ammo over the last year. I wasn't impressed with the accuracy of either, so I reloaded all the brass with Hornady 180gr. XTP and FMJ ammo and have made much better groups with my Beretta Mini Cougar. I posted a range report a few days ago and the accuracy at 10 yds was better than with any factory ammo I have shot out of it in the last 10 years. My gun prefers the heavier 180gr. loads. For practice however, you can't beat WWB!!

Good info, thanks RL. I was surprised when the range said I couldn't use my own ammo (some West Palm Beach ordinance...or so they say) so I forgot to check what they sold me (or should I say gouged me for ). Anyway I don't know if it was 155gr or 165gr but I have some Remington UMC 180gr I'm gonna try next time.

Nice first outing!
The more you shoot the better you will get and for a first time out with a new pistol that is pretty good. I expect your going to truly enjoy the M&P as most of us who own them do.
