I was reading today on another forum where someone was saying that the "M&P in .40 cal wasn't accurate past 7 yards"

Cough cough




From 10 yards.

My customer Rob posted this in another thread. I am not posting this to brag on my shooting, but I find this very typical of the M&Ps I test fire and fire a few :wink:





target was 10 yds the first shot was placed high by the nimrod on the trigger (target is upside down in the picture)

Try a paper plate plate at 100 yards.With a little hold over it is not that hard with right ammo.

I use cheap paper plates. They are very cheap targets and easy to find. Just make an "X" in the center of the plate, and only aim for the "X". For the record, the M&P is a very accurate gun.

I wondered if anyone else used paper plates!

My M&P 9mm was grouping <3 inches off hand at 10 yards which is totally within the realm of accuracy to be expected from an off the shelf combat pistol.



I was also hitting an 8 inch steel swinger off hand at 25 yards so consistently it was getting boring.

The M&P is plenty accurate for its intended role.

I set up a large stand with a bunch of Shoot-n-See targets at 25 yards. I use the smaller 7" high versions of these:







Most of the problem came from how sore my hands were getting after stuffing that last 10th round in the magazine. Other than that, the pistol does just fine at 25 yards. For a 3.5" barrel and lousy 3-dot sights, I find the accuracy damn good.

Yeah, I agree with what everyone else here is saying. The M&P is easily one of the most accurate auto pistols out right now. It shure beats the hell out of my two previous pistols, a Beretta and a Tauarus 24/7 pro. All in 40 cal.

Nice target postings. Helps to increase my confidence in the M&P. For me, the M&P hasn't been the most accurate semiauto I've fired. I've shot almost everything else better. I'm pretty sure it is a shooter problem and I may have finally fixed the problem. Time will tell. Thanks for the photos of what it can do.
