Default Range Report / Smith & Wesson MP-45

It’s official; I’ve gone over to the dark side. My first plastic gun.

I wanted a 10 round 45 to keep in the house so I could lock all the 1911s in the safe in the garage. Losing my guns to burglars is my biggest concern here in LA.

I really like the MP and was impressed with how well it shoots. The trigger is different but I got used to it real quick. The gun had no failures at all right out of the box, even using the remanufactured range ammo. The three choices of palm swell pieces included is a great feature and I found and installed the one that fits me best. The field stripping and reassembly on this gun is simple and quick, making cleaning a breeze. One thing I will point out is that this gun is described as a double action. It’s not. The slide must be drawn back to re-cock the internal striker if the pistol is dry fired. I’m used to single action so it’s fine by me. I got the model with the manual safety to make one in the chamber storage safer.

All in all very happy with the purchase.


Indoor Range
Distance 21 feet
10 rounds at each target
Ammo Range reloads

I don't know Jo, she looks like a shooter to me. That is a dead gangbanger all day in these parts.

What did the gun run you in Kali? And 10 rounds in a pistol is okay with Pelosi/Satans halfbreed and co??

Nice report and good shooting!

JD

Glad you like it and nice shooting! I personally didn't care for the feel of it but everyone I know who has one has been very happy. I doubt you'll be any different.

Nice shooting! I'm really happy with my M&P 9mm, I've been considering getting one in .45.
