Coming home from work Friday I had $25 in my pocket. Stopped at a casino and walked out with $800. Time to go to the Tulsa Gun Show Saturday morning. That resulted in the above purchase.

NIB M&P 9mm Talo. It does have a finish defect on the other side of the slide near the muzzle. That defect brought with it a very good deal.

I put 400 rounds through it yesterday after a good cleaning and inspection. The hard drive was the first target. 17 rounds of 4.3gn of TightGroup under 124gn XTP at 10 yards. Shot that 100 lot up and switched to 100 rounds of Remington Express 115 gn JHP #R9MM1. It then digested a 100 rounds of 124gn XTP over 4.5gn of TightGroup. I then finished the day with 100 rounds of 147gn XTP over 3.6gn of TightGroup.

It shot 300 rounds of my reloads and 100 rounds of over priced retail ammo. Not one hiccup. No issues at all. All the brass came out fantastic. No dents, No bulges, No head shots. All landed in a nice tight pattern.

The egros are great! And the trigger is far better than my M&P .45 was out of the box. With a quick touch up and tune it will be wonderful! It shot out very well.

Really glad the Creek Indians bought it for me.

I'm very grateful.

Psyshack,

Congrats on the new purchase.

I never seem to have any luck at the Oklahoma casinos!! Thought for a while about adding a new M&P to the collection. Still a little rich for me though, as I not too long ago bought a XD, and am wanting a 1911 platform.

Good looking pistol

Holy crap! The platters on that drive are TRASHED! Take that Western Digital!!

That's the nicest $25.00 gun I've seen in some time. :D

I may have to reconsider my stance on gambling.....

Lol! That's exactly how I bought mine a couple months ago. My wife and I went to an Indiana casino with a couple hundred bucks. Walked out with$ 1200.00. She said go ahead and buy the gun. Very nice gun you have! Hate to have been that hard drive. :)

I've had a good time with the M&P. With 1k rounds through it now, it's not missed a beat. I will be shooting it tomorrow. :)
