I got to take my new Smith out today and shoot a little and it performed beautifully for me!
Not one single issue; Quite a change from my PT22 that I had!
I exhausted myself reading reviews on which gun to purchase for HD/SD/CCW, and I am very pleased with my research and final decision on this one!
The range was a little crowded, so I had to go back to 25yds (as opposed to a more realistic SD distance), but I'm still on paper and it shot well.
I have read that these M&P's have a "gritty trigger".
I'm NO expert on the subject, but the trigger felt just fine to me!
My husband also bought a S&W SD9 and I gotta tell you... my gun blows his away, in the hand/feel, trigger feel, AND in recoil.
I put somewhere between 50-75 rounds through my 9c today with 115 and 124 grain (only about 24 rounds of 124) and there was no noticeable difference to me (and I was worried that there might be).
Brands used were CCI Blazer FMJ's (115) and some other 124 grain 9mm's that my FIL had in his gun safe from when he had his 9 that he brought with us--no problems (on either gun) with either type of ammo.
WOMEN: If you're interested, this is a great gun for us (or ANYONE), so far!
