Very nice, Grant! I'm curious, why 9mm vs .45 cal? I sure like to hear your logic given your experience level.



For me, I like the 9mm because it holds a ton of rounds and it's cheap to shoot. I don't mind the fact that recoil is near nothing either. I'm also confident in the stopping power of 124gr +P 9mm ammo so I don't feel I need to carry fewer, larger rounds.

IMHO, everyone should own a gun in 45 and one in 9mm. I own 1911's and M&P's so I have both calibers covered. I personally like 9mm because of the cost, less recoil (wife friendly) and the high round count that the weapons can hold.



At least once a week I get a customer in the shop that tells me that they want a handgun. When I show them a 9mm chambered weapon, they tell me that they want something with "knock down power." :roll:



A handgun caliber is still a handgun caliber. It is not a rifle. So IMHO, it really does not matter with caliber you choose as shot placement is key.

The weapon that is going to work the best for you in a violent situation is the one that you practice/train the most with. Caliber matters not.

Tell them it the preffered caliber of rappers and gang bangers(Bloods & Crypts)

But its only a 9mm...




I need to pick up one of those X300's. Fits OK?


Handgun caliber is a handgun caliber. What it boils down to with pistol caliber is shot pacement.



The X300 fits just fine.

Have you don any night shooting with the light yet?



I used a flashlight and different grip during night qualifying, and found I did better just shooting with the night sights in the dark, but a weapon mounted light should be the perfect compromise.

Yes I have. I put the light through this class: http://www.m4carbine.net/showthread.php?t=8907



I take as much night fighting courses as possible and teach basic low light at my local range. Am a bit if a flashlight geek. :wink:



Most people will shoot better without a handheld light than with. The simple reason is that they have a better grip on the weapon. The issue though is that you must ID your target to engage it.



Weapon mounted lights are really the only way to go.

Having just picked up a M&P45, you've motivated me to start adding the toys! Great post, nice pictures. Thanks!

Looks like it's resting on a military issue duffel bag
I recognize that fabric and color!



Nice shooter.
