    I took my new 9mm S&W M&P to the range for the first time yesterday, it's really different to what I'm used to shoot (double action revolvers). The only semiautos I have some experience with are 1911's, and I a couple of traditional DA/SA pistols I had for a short while.

    I'm happy with the gun, it had zero issues (I shot 150 rounds), the sights are easy to see and rapid firing is easy.

    The picture is from the first magazine I fired, far from competition record worthy but decent enough for defense. Plus the groups grew steadily tighter as I became a bit more familiar with the trigger.

    The group looks pretty good for the first time out. I only have shot a double action revolver. And btw, where'd you get the "bad kid" target?

    :D

    They are sold at my gun club. We actually had some protests by human rights organizations about our targets, they wanted us to stop using anything that looked like a person. :confused:

    Actually the National umbrella organisation here, the SSAA (Sporting Shooters Assoc of Aust, which you are bound to join by law when you sign up with your local club) does not use human-shaped targets, and they also discourage the wearing of camo clothing on ranges. My club, being a Naval Reserve one which trains cadets etc has no problem with this; our targets are most definately human-shaped [see my range report for pic] and 'kill shots' are referred to for scoring purposes even though shooting at targets is all we will ever do. And lots of people wear camo. I bet the SSAA would have kittens about that lol

    Excellent buy. I think you will be very pleased with the M&P. I've carried one for almost three years now and I have nothing bad to say about it. I've had zero malfunctions in thousands of rounds using nothing but WWB and defensive ammo. Its definitely a reliable and solid firearm.


    Tell them to move to MA - where its against the law to shoot at silhouettes, let alone zombie Osama.

    Time to start using targets that look like human rights workers. :) The odd thing about this is that a human rights organization would come to the defense of cardboard. These people obviously don't have enough to do.
