Seeing Gunny's post about his new full-size M&P reminded me that I also own and enjoy a full-size M&P. But, mine is in .40 S&W and is a 1.0 purchased in 2007. It has light on it that I check the batteries in it every couple of months, but haven't fired it in years. It's my nightstand gun and is literally in a drawer in a nightstand next to my bed. Seems I have so many new toys every couple of months, and limited free time to go shooting, that most of my guns go unfired or fondled for years. I tried to recall the last time I shot it. I found a picture of it I took while using it for a monthly challenge on another website. That was on December 24th of 2014. I haven't shot it for 5 1/2 years! That revelation was pretty dang embarrassing. This is the firearm I would rely on in a SHTF/home invasion/burglar scenario and I haven't shot it in nearly 6 years?? Stupid, stupid, stupid. Now, an M&P40c was my carry gun for years, so I've been current with the platform, at least. And to add insult to injury, I popped the mag out and inspected the rounds. I had it filled with a mix of hard-cast bear loads and XTP 180 grain reloads. WTH? Going to the range next week to try out my new 1911 and will bring the M&P to verify all is good and to freshen the magazine with suitable self-defense ammo. In my defense, my door gun, which is an Extar braced AR 9mm, was just fired about a month ago, since it is so dang fun and all my friends want to shoot it. It is good to go. My revelation made me wonder how often other enthusiasts actually take their nightstand guns to the range and check them for proper function and familiarization within a reasonable amount of time. I realize a lot of people use their carry gun as their night stand gun, but I'm sure there are a lot of folks like me that stash a gun and forget about it. Although maybe not nearly 6 years.
