    I just picked up a new-to-me M&P9c from 19-3ben earlier this week with 4 12rd mags, a box of HP and holster for five bills. Great transaction and a sweet little shooter! :D Shoot a couple rounds of skeet this morning then headed over to the pistol range to put some rounds through this little guy. First off I'm not new to M&P's, I have a 45c and 40 FS plus various Glocks so I'm accustom to both trigger systems. I put 100rds through it this morning with obviously no issues. Shoots as good as my G19 and the G26 I tried out very comparable pistols. I love the 3 dot sights and I change out my Glock sights to 3 dot as soon as I get them home. Recoil is very controllable and you would never know you are shooting a compact 9mm pistol. This is a keeper! Don't know exactly why 19-3ben sold it, but I'm glad he did! :evil: It's a joy to shoot! I also picked up a couple FS 17rd mags which fit and feed perfectly. I'm very happy with the pistol and would advise any one looking for compact 9mm to try out the M&P9c. IMHO it is of equal quality and accuracy as the G26 and a bit thinner. The 9c is very easy to CC in my Crossbreed SuperTuck.

    Target 30ft, 10rds of my 124gr Precision Polymer coated bullets with 4.7gr Bullseye. :D Couple flyers, but I was not even trying to shoot groups! This a real keeper! :D The COM shoots were double taps from the draw. I'll take it out to 25yds this weekend to see how it performs.

    Exactly how I felt about it too!!!
    By the way, i remember it was DEAD ON with those Speer Gold Dots that I gave you with it. Super accurate. And still tamed recoil far beyond what you'd expect from a compact gun.

    Why did I sell it? I just wanted a thinner gun.
    If I couldn't have kept the M&P9c and gotten the Kahr I would have.

    I'm really glad that you are enjoying it. I hope you shoot it more than I got to!

    Smith and Wesson hit a home run with the M&P series, IMO.

    Good looking piece. Congrats.

    Congrats!

    Like you, I used to own a couple of Glocks, but those have long been replaced by my five M&P's... I just can't get enough of them. My oldest son sold his two Glocks and replaced them with M&P's, after he shot mine a few times. My youngest son never went the way of Glock and headed straight for an M&P9 Pro Series... He always has been a smart kid.

    My current M&P stable:

    M&P40 FS
    M&P357 FS
    M&P9c
    M&P9 Pro Series (x2)
