    Big Mick

    New member, and glad to be here. I've carried conceled for over thirty years. Always carried a .45. As I get older I like the .40 for the weight reduction. I now carry a S&W M&P40c. I do find it shoots a little low. Any ideas on bringing the shot up to point of aim?

    Welcome from Washington State.

    I have no experience with an M&P. I'm sure others will have suggestions for you.

    Welcome from VA!

    What size "palm swell" are you using? If your not using the larger swell, try it out and see how it shoots, the increased mass of the "swell" might give you a little better point of aim.

    Welcome from Montana.

    A low POI is sometimes caused by a too high front sight.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Welcome from Michigan.

    Aim high? Not that familiar with the M&P yet. What range is it high at?
