went back to the public range today, no crowd at all. one guy who was eating his lunch on a bench when i rolled up. beautiful weather and 60s. it was a gorgeous day to be outdoors. Took along my M&P 22 compact and a Ruger 10/22, also dusted off my S&W SW9VE a brick of Thunderbolts and 100 rounds of WWB 9mm. fired at 100 , 50 and 10 yds . the 10/22 with my cheap ass Barska 3-9 scope was as accurate as ever putting everything i threw downrange within the two center rings of a Dirty Bird target. the M&P compact continues to impress me with its reliability and accuracy . i fired almost two hundred rounds through it and the only malfunction i had was with 1 of 8 nasty ass remington golden bullets i found on the ground that all had strikes on the rim. all 8 went pow but the last one had a failure to extract . the pistol also flew apart in my hand and very quickly i realized that i had inadvertantly swept the takedown lever with my grip. first time thT had ever happened and i will be more conscious of the possibilty . i cannot grip this thing thumbs forward like i normally do , its very puzzling tho , ive always gripped it same as any other . the SW9 seemed to enjoy its time out as well , very accurate and i have always liked the ergos of this one , the trigger is fairly heavy but not horrible like the original Sigma. this is the second or third time ive shot it since i replaced the RSA with one from a glock 19 and it really made a difference in how it feels it has more of a push back now rather than a snap. it was a good upgrade. and it continues to have zero issues . ive had this one for about 15 years and shot countless rounds thru it , i believe the original price was around 299 plus tax and despite the internet bitching about its trigger i find it to be a really nice shooting pistol , all in all a good day. picked up a ton of 556 and 9mm brass too , to add to my piles when i one day start reloading.
