Compact 9mms

2011/12/28 1 comment

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.

However, I am still looking for a full-size 9mm USPSA production gun for Steel Challenge……

* (That review by Markos is one of the reasons I grabbed a new one from the last production run.)

What Lies in Wait – Lessons in Self Defense

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.
