    Just bought my first ccw.

    Hello everyone! Just wanted to share my first ccw purchase with the crowd. After obsessing over this for an entire week (ask the wife) I finally made a decision that I feel really happy about.

    Quick story about myself. In the Army I was issued an M9 which I shot a perfect 50/50 from my first qualification to my last. So the fact that I've always shot a 9mm extremely well played a huge part in my final decision. Not saying I'm a professional, just saying I've always felt extremely comfortable shooting the 9mm platform.

    With that being said, I set my eyes on the S&W M&P9c which due to recent events has been an extremely hard weapon to find. After a lot of searching I did happen to find the Talo edition, which is fantastic since I wanted the extended mag for the range anyway :-D

    Attached is a pic, just a standard 9c :-P

    Quite an introductory post, and a great choice. Welcome to the forum.

    M&P 9C is an outstanding weapon.
    Made my own "Talo" Edition by picking up the X-grips from Top Gun Supply.
