    First time out - M&P45c

    Today I had a chance to FINALLY get the M&P 45c for some time at the range. Of course, the wasn't a single issue using both HP and FMJ in a variety of standard and +P loads.

    The trigger did take some getting use to. But I did eventually get it dialed in. With that however, it seemed to shoot a bit low. That's not to say I couldn't use more time with the platform, but, there may be some room for a slight adjustment in elevation. It should be said, that after even this short trip to the range, there is some improvement with the trigger...although, I didn't think it was terribly bad to begin with.

    ~7-10 yards, in total, about 100 rounds:

    Looks good. Nothing like a 45 acp and I don't care what platform one is using.

    Looks good! I notice I shoot a little low when I dont take my time, I end up anticipating the recoild and then jerking it a bit down. Or not enought trigger control. Keep shooting!

    I had one of those that I traded against an XDm 45 Compact. I only traded because I liked the XDm a little better, but the M&P was completely flawless.

    Nice! I'd agree that you should take your time between shots. Looks like you may be anticipating recoil rather than misaligned sights.

    One way you can improve the trigger is to install parts from Apex Tactical. I only replaced the ejector and added their RAM.

    Looks good. It took me a while to get used to shooting my 40 FS . Now it just come natural shooting the FS or the compact.

    I love my 45c. Once I got it home my Glock 19 has spent a lot of time in my safe.---Sturgis

    I love my FS M&P40. I can tear the bullseye up pretty good at 7 yrds, but once I get out to 10 or 15 yrds, I'm all over the eight inch circle.

    Love the weapon, just wish it was lighter and smaller...the "C" is kind of misleading to me.
