It seems like a perfect weekend to honor our past Presidents by shooting guns in their memory.;> Actually, any weekend for me is a good excuse to break out my MP9 and 686+. Hit the ranges with your MP's and have a good time.
I'll be shooting this weekend! Breakin out the new 12 gauge and putting a few hundred more 9mm bullets down range with the M&P! 8)
How do you like that 686 plus? I am torn between that and the Ruger gp100 4" SS. I am selling my ruger p90 .45 acp and my walther p22 to get either one but havent decided for sure. What are your thoughts man?

I enjoy it. I have around 2000 rounds through it, about 750 .357 loads and no problems. It's smooth, well balanced, great sights, and reliable. I like the 7 shot capacity as well, but I too almost picked up the Ruger GP100. The 686+ won out due to better grip, sights, and capacity. And yes mine does have that lock, but I never use it and it's caused no problems so far.
One minor problem is that it does not like Magtec ammo. The primer dents well enough, but no bang. I blame that on the ammo since American Eagle goes off with every trigger pull.
I hope this all helps. BTW I do think the GP100 is a great gun. If I were using heavy handloads, the Ruger would win out.
I don't get to shoot very often because there are not a lot of public ranges around here. the closest is a half hour away and is expensive.
but my wife is going skiing with one of her girlfriends and I just got the AWESOME new UpLULA Loader from eguns.com ....so I'm off to the range!!! Wahoo! this will only be second time with my M&P that I got back in December
Taking the daughter to the indoor range (burrr too cold for outdoor) to shoot her brothers .22 Mossberg (He's in Fl. enjoying winter break!) And I am going to shoot MY MP 9C and new Kel-Tec 380. Should be a great day!
I went out on my son-in-law's property and shot a little today. It was very cold and very windy, so I didn't stay long. Anyway, it had been a good while since I shot firearms, so I took my semi-auto's out there. I fired .22, .32 (revolver), 9mm, .40, and .45. Now let me tell you, I didn't enjoy shooting any of them except for the .22 and .32.
Got back about an hour ago, after 400 rds I think I am getting a knack for the weapon. After reviewing Todd Jarrets video I really improved my marksmanship. Suprisingly enough I was tagging plates at 25 meters like they were at 10 feet. The more I shoot this M&P40 the more people want to shoot it too. I think I may have sold 5 or more in the last 2 weeks, God Bless Smith and Wesson. :wink:
