Never seen this subgun before. It looks pretty cool. Via Defense Review who has a lot more info on it and tons of pics.

Update on converting 15 round M&P 9 magazines to 17 round capacity

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

I told you guys a bit back that I cut the extra spring to stuff two more rounds in each. I’ve now ran each magazine a total of four times. And this last time, I had my first failure using one of the WECSOG inspired magazines. On the second round, there was a failure to […]

Range day notes

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Went out to do some shooty stuff today. A while back, I mentioned converting 15 round M&P mags to 17 round. I’ve no run each of magazines twice. In that time, there was one failure to feed. Obviously, not enough rounds through them to draw any conclusions. But I think they’ll make fine range only […]

Brilliant: Put your rear sight in front of the red dot sight

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

I was kicking around the NRA show floor when, at the Trijicon booth, I saw this Zev custom Glock: And I thought “That sight is on wrong. How odd.” As I’ve mentioned, I snagged a M&P9 Pro CORE. The iron sights on it are behind the RMR. Acquiring the red dot sight on it took […]

Apex has a new flat faced trigger and a machined sear for M&Ps S&W releasing a suppressor ready M&P22. I just put a P22 thread on mine. Smith & Wesson M&P9 ultimate tactical edition. And a discussion of red dot sights. Mine isn’t an ultimate tactical but I have the long barreled Pro series with […]

A look at handgun stopping power

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Flamewar and trolling inbound Number crunching. A few things leap out at me, such as a 32 actually has a higher one shot incapacitation rate than a 45. So does a .380. Do I really think that’s a case for one over the other? No. Also, average number of rounds to incapacitation is interesting. My […]

My new carry rig

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Oleg has a pic. Michael at The Holster Site made me a custom piece. Instead of babying it, I decided to just strap the whole thing on and go to gun school with it. I figure that’d be as good a test as anything. A few initial impressions: That is one stiff belt. I like […]

Smith and Wesson M&P9 Review

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

A good review and pics by Richard. I’ve partaken of that Kool-Aid myself and, have to admit, I really like it. I still carry my Glock 30 mostly but, once I get a few hundred more rounds down range with the M&P, I may carry it more. I know the Glock goes bang every time […]

M&P 9 Stuff

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

All the cool kids seem to like them. I had somehow missed this torture test of one. Over 62K rounds, two stoppages, three parts breakages. 0 malfunctions. Until the slide cracked. S&W said to keep shooting it after inspecting. But their lawyers said no.

Interesting snippet from Handgun Wounding Factors and Effectiveness. I’ve pretty much found all arguments about people’s preference for an effective handgun carry round to be largely academic, for reasons illustrated here. And I say that as someone who carries a 45ACP, mostly. Still, given my recent purchase of a 9mm, I am pondering what my […]

What did you do for 1 9 11?

Monday, January 10th, 2011

I actually shot my Smith and Wesson M&P9. I put 200 rounds through it yesterday. Zero failures of any kind. Trigger pull is good, not fantastic. It’s a bit stacky and has a short reset. I was consistently low and to the right with it so a sight adjustment is in order. Not sure how […]

Good to know

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

In comments on my review of the M&P9, jumpthestack says of the frame tool: The frame tool is useless. I just use my finger to push the sear disconnect down. You can also just pull the trigger like on a Glock. Ah. So that is their fix to the supposed Glock problem of having to […]

For all the comments on the Smith and Wesson M&P9. I handled one at the gun show and really liked how it felt. I need to go shoot one. And it looks like there are quite a few options. I hope there is one that doesn’t have all the dumb stuff like manual safeties and […]
