    Just got home from the gun store with my new babeh. S&W M-P 9mm! They didn't have the one with the extra mag and holster so I had to just buy the regular one and got my own holster.

    I'm excited....I'm heading to the range to check it out!!

    Oh man...just got back. I love it!! I bought a membership to the range so I'll be going a lot now.

    How many rounds should I fire before I clean it?
    A box of 50 shells at the range is approx $11, is that a good price or should I buy it somewhere else? I'm just getting into shooting so I'm not about to start reloading my own yet.

    Walmart is 15 for 100..Winchester Value Pack


    My carry gun is kept pretty clean...my others, not so much :o

    When I do classes, I run 1500-2000 without a cleaning. Other than that, I just do it when I am extremely bored.

    "extra mag"? Is that some S&W promo for an extra free mag? The gun came with two mags total, right?

    Yeah I was wondering about that too, because the promo for 2 extra free mags passed in July.
    Now its just the free range bag.

    Yeah I think it's a S&W offer because my gun dealer wouldn't just throw in the extras. He said they had to wait till another set came in.

    It's basically 3 mags, the gun and a holster all for what I paid for the gun and 2 mags. Sweet deal but they couldn't tell me when the next set would come in so I just bought the gun with 2 mags.

    My salesman and I have a common friend so to make up for not having the set, he gave me a free class.

    Is there a particular ammo manufacturer I should avoid? I'm planning on shooting only factory ammo for a long time - I may reload my own but it'll be a long time before I do.

    Basically just stay away from Wolf.
    I shoot WWB, Blazer Brass, and Remington UMC through mine with nothing but bangs every single time.

    Walmart also sells 50rd boxes of CCI Blazer Brass for $6.97, if you want something a bit cheaper than the Winchester value packs. It works well, I shoot it all the time in my Glock 19.

    Sweet that's almost 1/2 the price of the range ammo. Thanks.

    Put 200 rounds through it today with a buddy. It was strange, we were shooting with the small grip on it but then switched to the medium and we both started shooting more accurately.

    My friend likes it so much he now has gun envy and wants to buy one!! I'm seriously enjoying this gun but I sure with the range had air conditioning. It gets damned hot in there.

    I like the medium backstrap most, and sometimes opt for the large backstrap when shooting hotter ammo.
    Just seems to help soak up more recoil. The small backstrap is for pussies, women... and Hoss.

    Just making sure you got at least the two mags that were supposed to come with it. I've seen and heard all sorts of stories about dealers swapping full caps for 10rd mags, only giving one mag with the gun, charging extra for the fired shells if you have to submit them to the state, etc.
