Took my new M&P9c to the range today along with my SR9c and overall am really happy with it. I put 150 rounds of cheap 115gr plinking ammo through it with no mechanical issues as expected. I'd say the M&P had slightly more muzzle flip for me than the Ruger but I was able to get it back on target quickly. I think it's a little better ergonomically than the SR9c but both fit me really well. I do like that the M&P slide release is a little easier to manipulate than the Ruger, plus the thumb safety is larger and more like my 1911.
My only "issue" is that the M&P shot consistently low at pretty close distances. At 15ft my SR9c hit at point of aim, but the M&P was 2" low. I obviously expect some drop as distances increase but thought this was a little much for being so close. I adapted and adjusted my aim, but wonder if anyone else has experienced this?
I should also note all shots were offhand and indoors using essentially a modified weaver stance.
