Thanks Jeff. I'm not sure when I picked that up. 'Course it's been years since I fired on a regular basis. When I was in the military, consistently put 49 of 50 in the black. Never failed to shoot expert!
Although it's not the best pattern, I am pretty satisfied and confident that I would hit whatever I pointed the barrel at!
Where's your Point of Hold (vs POI)? My new M&P grouped about 1.5-2" LOW my first mag, since the POI is directly BEHIND the front sight, as opposed to on TOP of the front sight, where both my XDs hit.
I know, you're 3-5" low, but it you're use to alligning at the bottom of the bullseye on those big black bulls, you're hitting right "under/behind" the front post. My "bullseye" on the targets I shoot is about 2" across. With my XDs, I'd "split it" so could see the top half of the bull (my preference). With the M&P, I have to "block it out".
