    Bought an M&P9...

    After ten years of carrying 5" 1911-pattern pistols nearly exclusively, at last weekend's gun show here in Indy, I told Shootin' Buddy that if I found an early G19 for less than four bills, I would buy it.

    After roaming the aisles, I found a private-sale G19 for $425 (asking) with those wretched Big Dots on it, another early G19 for $399 with one mag...

    ...and a two-tone stainless slide M&P9 in the box with the docs for $399. It looked like a new gun. So I bought it.

    I took a spare Krag-Jorgensen carbine back to the show the next day, sold it, and used the cash to buy another two spare mags, a bunch of 9mm ball, and a hundred rounds of Winchester RA9TA.

    Headed to the range tomorrow AM. If all goes well, my lower back will thank me in a few months...

    It is a good flavor of Kool-Aid.
    Think for yourself. Question authority.

    Awesome Tam. Aside from the long range accuracy issues (which by no means afflicts all 9mm M&P's), I really really like the gun, and shoot it pretty well.

    I don't know about Kool-Aid, dude. It's just a gun.

    My only real issue with the M&P 9's was the POI issues past 20 or 25 yards with it, with several pistols. It pained me to do it, but I sold em all.

    I hope you enjoy your new gun.

    Are you planning on using your new M&P in Todd's class the 24th, not as many reloads.

    A *spare* Krag-Jorgensen carbine?

    Congrats on the M&P. If you have any questions or issues, there certainly are people here who can answer them.

    If 1911 users keep deserting the platform, we may need to set up a government subsidy program to keep some out there.

    Congrats on the new pistola - you might want to check out the Apex DCAEK, depending on how well you like the trigger.

    I think you are the only person I know that could say that.

    I got a smoking deal on a M&P .40. Much more refined than the .45 I got four years ago. Does yours have the rear sight that's cut to enhance one handed reloads?
