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.
* (That review by Markos is one of the reasons I grabbed a new one from the last production run.)
VERY VERY good post on self-defense from Brigid. Go Read NOW.
The thought of physical threats is never a pleasant one. Some people would just as soon close the blinds and pretend the danger does not exist. But you only have to look at a few law enforcement blotters and missing persons reports to get you thinking about the dangers that women carry with them, the dangers that men bear just by walking on a predator’s turf.
