    I'm taking her to the range tomorrow morning.

    I'm going to clean it lightly before I go.

    Any other pre-shoot tips?

    I can't gripe about a S&W .40...

    Congratulations.

    Be safe, have fun...

    It's all about the front sight and trigger control!

    Congrats and happy shooting!

    Yeah it's two tone.

    I think it's exclusive to Cabela's.

    Its a good rule of thumb to strip down, clean and lube any new gun before you first fire it. Most manuf. recommend this.

    Very nice M&P, I thought you had to get it custom for stainless slides but now they are selling them like that?

    I doubt it, unless something like extra magazines or extra warranty are thrown in. Most any gun shop should be able to get their hands on any type of gun with any option available from the factory, thats legal in the US. It just might take a little longer. I picked up my EAA match from one of my more favorite local shops. He never heard of the model, but has 5 different suppliers. It took a few phone calls and about a month for the supplier to get one and ship it to him.
