Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm

April 20th, 2008

 It’s no secret that we like Glocks, but occasionally we get folks in class for whom the Glock doesn’t work well, especially folks with smaller hands. To help us accomplish our mission of teaching new shooters, we needed a defensive pistol that would fit a greater cross section of students. Our research turned up one good contender, the Smith &Wesson M&P. We purchased this pistol in 9mm at the beginning of February 08 and have used it in our last four classes. In addition, my kids have shot the last couple of Practical Pistol matches at Southern Shooting Center with it. After 1,500 plus rounds with zero malfunctions we’re liking it more and more. The M&P may be purchased in 9mm, .40 and .45. Each come with three ergonomic interchangeable grips. We installed the smallest of the three grips and find it works very well for the greatest number of students.  You can read a more detailed review of the M&P here


I’ve seen the M&P locally at Southern Shooting Center.
