I got to try three compact 9mms yesterday during a range trip with Jay G. In addition to my S&W 908S*, I tried a Ruger SR9c and a S&W M&P 9c. I really, really, really wanted to like the M&P 9c…but the MAss compliant trigger really bugged me. Yeah, I know, for a few bucks APEX will be glad to help you solve that issue, but the SR9c was so good out of the box, why bother with the M&P? One can get the SR9c for about $70 cheaper than the 9c.
Bottom line: my 908s is a bit slimmer, and goes bang when I pull the trigger. I’ll keep it.
