    New addition and first 45.

    I’ve 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 what’s a friend to do but try and help out.

    Meet the latest addition.

    I haven’t 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.

    I’ve shot 45s before, but this is the first one I’ve 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! :D

    Congrats on joining the M&P clan! :D 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.

    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.
