    M&P 9mm

    123
    Hello to all! I'm new to this forum and somewhat new to pistol shooting. I've shot and owned pistols for awhile but I'm seeking to shoot a lot more. I have a M&P .40 which I do like a lot, I have my local dealer now looking for a M&P 9mm performance center with the ported barrel. Now after reading some stuff on a few forums there's been a lot of bad reviews on the 9mm M&P. Does anybody know or have any experience with the performance center 9mm? Only reason I want the 9mm over another .40 is cost of ammo. My plan is to use the 9 as my main target gun.

    Welcome to the forum.

    As far as I know M&P's are rock solid pistol's. I have heard some complaints about the trigger but a PC pistol should have a great trigger.

    Welcome aboard.

    I own four centerfire M&P's, two of which are the M&P 40 4.25" and the M&P 9 Pro Series 4.25". I shoot the M&P 9 Pro the most, having put over 5,000 rounds through it. A fine gun and worry free as long as you clean it on a reasonably regular basis (clean the magazine(s) you use, too, as when dirty, they can cause failures to feed).

    I was at the range two days ago and the man in the lane next to me had an M&P Performance Center. He was shooting nice tight groups. When I asked him about the gun, he said that it took a little getting used to it but once he did, all was well with it.

    Thanks, sounds good, hope I'm making a good decision, couldn't find much that I liked out there with so many options and price of the M&P PC. Now I just wait for the phone call saying they found one and its on its way!

    No issues with my M&P Pro in 9mm. Run mine hard and has functioned flawless.

    Hi, welcome! I have no experience with the performance center, but I do believe the M&P 9 is one heck of a pistol.

    I bought one about a month ago, PC with ported barrel and slide. Stock up on your cleaning supplies! The ported barrel makes a mess inside the slide and outside the barrel. It works fine and it shoots fine.

    Can't speak for the others, but my Mrs. has a M&P9c, and absolutely loves it. Brags about it and offers anybody & everybody the opportunity to shoot it when we're at the range...

    You have to wait before taking possession? Is that for the entire state in which you live or just a particular municipality? Which state is this?

    Years ago, there was a waiting period in the Northern Virginia area that ranged from three to five days. It was brought about by a murder/suicide that took place on Valentine's Day, 1964*. We no longer have this here. Waiting periods are a double edged sword. On the one hand, people are led to believe that if someone is made to "cool off" for a predefined period, any crime that they were considering will be washed clean. On the other, if you need a firearm quickly because you are in imminent danger, a waiting period can get you killed.


    * I can offer details if anyone wishes to see them.

    I've got three M&P's. FS, Compact and Shield. All 9mm. My full size is standard issue, not Performance Center, but I can tell you this. All three are like the Energizer Bunny, they run as long as I feed them. Couldn't ask for any more IMHO.

    Shot 100 rounds of Winchester white box through the new gun yesterday. This thing shoots so smooth cant believe the difference from my .40 M&P (slandered from 2011). Now all I need is more skill!

    Good to hear. I have three S&W pistols. The SW40VE Sigma, which has ran like a champ for three years now. I have the M&P Shield 9mm, and the M&P Bodyguard .380 ACP. All of these guns are some of the best I have ever owned, and would not hesitate to buy any of the S&W pistols I could get my hands on. They make wonderful guns.

    Wow. Now that's something you don't normally see. I bet S&W will send you a new barrel.

    Sent my PC9MM to S&W 2 weeks ago, got her back yesterday with a new barrel. Kinda wish they just sent me a new barrel but that's fine, didn't cost me a dime to ship the whole thing. Now just to find some time to run her again!
