I have been lurking on the site for some time now. I have been in the market for a handgun for a while, I have previously owned a XD 9 but sold it quite a while ago. That was my first handgun and only put maybe 30 rounds thru it. I was going to get another XD and then on one of the XD forums I read good things about the M&P, so I started looking and never looked back. I found one and took a half day at work yesterday so I could drive 2 hrs and go get it so I could shoot it today. I got the 9C, I put about 180 rounds thru it today and love it.



Now I need some help. I have only shot maybe 50 rounds total thru any handgun before today. I started at shooting horrible not even hitting the paper every time (11 x 18 target maybe). By the end I was at least hitting the paper with all 12, they are somewhat centered up but they are all low. What am I doing? I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks for any input.

The best thing you can do to help your technique is to dry fire a LOT. Put the middle of the last pad of your finger on the trigger (i.e. don't pull it with your knuckle). Check that the gun is clear, set up a target on your wall, check again that the gun is unloaded, and dry fire at the target. Do it till the sights don't move off the bulls eye as you pull the trigger.

Thanks guys. I love the gun so far, it went bang all except one time, it was dimpled just no bang.



I have dry fired it a fair amount and I will continue to. I think I am developing something as I shoot because at one point I was horrible, I stopped and just went back to dry firing and I was anticipating I think and pulling pushing low and left, after I got that smoothed out I started to progress again but still consistently low but centered up. Thanks for the input. I will be going again today. Can't wait...
