After suffering through the waiting period in Washington, I finally picked up the M&P Pro .40 that’s been sitting around with my name on it. I haven’t done a lot of shooting with it, but I did get the chance to run some basic accuracy drills. The following group was shot at 25 yards freestyle using the “slow fire bullseye rules. Slow fire events call for 5 shots in 2 minutes and 30 seconds, which is a lot of time and more than enough time to properly control the shot.
So far, I’m really impressed with the M&P Pro in .40. When shooting 165 grain loads, I honestly forgot I was shooting a .40 for a while there. The factory trigger breaks at 7.5 lbs, so there’s room for some improvement there. I’m going to compare it alongside the Ruger SR40 I have sitting here, so far the Ruger is ahead by 1 point – the factory trigger on my Ruger weighs in at 6.5 lbs.
