I picked up my new .40 M&Pc with gunshop-installed Trijicon night sights today, took it home, cleaned it, and took it to the range for an initial run through. I was really pressed for time and had to shoot pretty fast. On the first few shots (165 gr. WWB - it was all I had) as I pulled the trigger I thought, "Yikes this trigger pull is GRITTY, I've never felt anything like this - yuck!" But then I looked at target and thought, "hmm, that's not to bad and where did the recoil go: it feels like a 9mm." Then I shot more and thought, "either the trigger is smoothing out, or I'm just not caring because I'm shooting this new gun accurately and feeling no recoil." This is the first time I've ever shot an M&P and I'm very pleased with and impressed by how accurate and soft recoiling this .40 M&Pc is! I have two other guns with very similar dimensions: a .40 H&K P2000 SK (which I just got last week) and a .40 subcompact glock G27 (which I've shot a lot with and currently CCW) and, though it's too early to say, I've a feeling the M&P just might surpass the other two (I'm a glocker and that was hard to say.) I just kind of fell out of shooting for a while and have only recently started back, but I've some nice guns to shoot and things are looking good.
