Not too many months ago I purchased a M&P Compact 9mm for my wife. After shooting it and thoroughly wringing it out I put a M&P on my wish list.
As wish lists go, mine is long. Who doesn’t want two of everything? So time moved on and I continued to shoot a Ruger P89 in local steel matches. (scores and videos are posted on the forum)
I believe the P89 is a fine pistol. It’s accuracy and shoot-ability have always kept me in any shooting game.
Unfortunately, after a couple thousand rounds, the extractor quit on me during a steel match. Another competitor loaned me a S&W M&P Pro 9mm for the rest of the stages. (video posted on the forum ;-)…)
After shooting the Pro at “Friday Night Steel” I picked one up the following Monday. The LGS said that S&W won’t be manufacturing Pros again until Sept. That’s not a fact that I’ve verified.
Apex Tactical produces quality parts to cure all these ills. I ordered the competition kit and the RAM kit. The M&P is amazing easy to disassemble and reassemble. I had it down to the frame, upgraded, and back together in less than a hour.
The ergos of the M&P are superb. It’s also light and “thin”. Magazines are also interchangeable between like calibers. This means you could have a compact for a back up and use your full size magazine in it.
The S&W M&P series is American made, high quality, versatile, easily “worked on”, and affordable.
Franky, I’m not going to stop until I have the complete 9mm line up!
Hope to see you posting on the board!
