Similar ballistics on paper but with much better bullets that penetrate and expand in the deer. This would be a close range gun only and basically a toy.

ditto, I always liked you but why would you want to hunt deer with something like that ? May as well use a model 1911 for the same ballistics.

8.5" 300 Blackout. Came as a pistol but I put it on my SBR lower to see how it would look for deer hunting, I think it looks pretty darn cool! 208gr bullet at 1150fps.

Just picked up a CMMG AR pistol in 300 BlackOut. I'll probably end up putting the upper on a rifle lower (yes I have an SBR lower) and suppress it.

Randy,

Yes it is beautiful.

I have to say I am very impressed with your set up as well. It takes a lot of effort to get that kind of accuracy at that kind of range. I tinker with my 22-250 to get out there but my "large game" rifles I call it good out to 300 for some reason.

DLAMA2 Thats a beautiful work of art. Pain staking effort goes into that level of engraving. Not like the CNC machine engraving you see on "modern" stuff

Bought another Tikka Stainless .270 short mag for long range. Pulled the action from the plastic stock and dropped it into a Boyd Thumbhole Sporter, Timmey trig and a little tweek. Burris XTR 6-24 w/ the XTR mounts Modified the cheek plate on the stock for a 1" additional rise and slimmed out the thumbhole for a better fit to my hand. Sinclair Tactical bipod with lock swivel head. Shooting Barnes 140gr TSX over MagPro/Fed Gold Match primers, Norm brass - (annealed) 3280fps over the chrony.

Zero'd at 317yrd. Group shown is 500yrds on the bench under 1/2MOA Currently shooting out to 900yrds with intent of 1000+

Built it specifically for elk at the higher elevations

Model 648-6 S&W in .22WMR SS version. Factory walnut grips. Bought it at a Rummage/Estate sale for $350. I have always been a huge 1911 fan, but this thing is pure fun to shoot. My daughters love it and have declared it "their" pistol.

Shadling, I agree that there is nothing quite like a 1911. All the "plastic" guns excite me just about as much as a hammer - they work great but certainly aren't anything to look at.

Nice to see all you M&P guys like your guns. I am a certified Glock fanboy when it comes to Tupperware guns but I will admit I really like the feel of M&Ps in my hand. I just have not gotten used to the trigger yet. But I have primarily shot Glock or 1911s for the past 15 years so I am really used to the glock trigger. Though not much comes close to how much I like my 1911 triggers. That being said I will probably pick up an M&P one of these days just because. Though I do need to add another 1911 to the safe first. So many guns I want to buy, and never enough $$$ to buy them all. Some days I see why my wife scowls at me when she sees me on gunbroker. LOL!

Well, I had a S & W .40 Compact. Loaned it to my step son (Deputy) to try it out about 9 months ago. I guess he likes it.

Ditto,

You will really like the ergonomics of the M&P, as you have already noted there is not much in the way of striker fired pistols or other types for that matter that fits as well as an M&P.

I have a stream light TLR-2 with laser that I was using for room clearing and night fire on a Ruger SR9. I found with the 600 ilum light that I could easily pick up the three dot sight and because the laser is mounted under the light it is a very narrow window where the laser and sights can be co-witnessed.

Have a pro series M&P with the 5 in barrel, that I am using on steel, even though it has a small bump for trigger over travel, I found about three layers of a small piece of duct tap really helped the over travel when placed on top of the bump. This is primarily used for steel shooting.

Both the Ruger and Smith are nice, but the triggers will never compete with my 1911's

enjoy the Smith.

I had to go buy a S&W M&P 9mm today. I have to go to some entry training in May and needed a handgun with a light on it and I couldn't find a holster to fit a XDM with a StreamLight TLR-2 on it so I needed to pick up a gun that I could get a holster for ASAP. I went to pick up a Glock but IMHO there is no comparison in the feel and comfort between the Glock and the S&W, the S&W wins hands down. So now I have 2 9mm and I don't even like 9mm's!
