Hi all, I'd like to request your input. I advise two college gun clubs here in beautiful Santa Barbara, People's Soviet of Kalifornia. Courtesy of the Friends of the NRA we already have 5 Ruger Competition .22s for pistol marksmanship training. A new grant year is coming up and I am interested in adding centerfire pistols to our collection for training with the college students. I have and shoot a few pistols, and have my preferences, which I am sure will not be the ones for the kids (I own 3 Series 70 Colt National Match pistols, so you know what I like). Would you recommend a M&P for new shooters? I examined a S&W M&P last weekend and it looked pretty good to me (and will fit smaller hands [we have a number of young ladies who participate]). Factory reconditioned Glocks have also been suggested, but the grip seems too big. Help?! Thanks.
