I have 3 30 round mags.. so far.
Well, I'm single, so...
Well then, Magpul awaits
I have the Shield 9mm because I like to shoot a lot. The .40 is 50% more expensive for ammo.
Single stack FTW!
But I do enjoy my all steel CZ 75 Compact more.
That's great, KP!!!
I want a full size CZ75. They are very nice firearms!
Got one of those too.
You can never be too skinny, too rich or have too many CZ 75s.
M&P Sport II is a damn fine AR..mine has WELL over 1K rounds through it..not a single malfunction..nada..zip..NONE.
There may have been a slight color mismatch between upper and lower..but after some shooting and CLP wipedowns..it's blended VERY well..older pic..looks even better now:
I used ALUMINUM BLACK to subdue the M&P logo:
Pretty damn accurate!! I will say this particular AR LOVES 55 grain.
I have a similar handgun. It's the old Jericho 941 built by the Israelis. It's kinda rough, but it was a gift from my wife. And she only paid around $150 for it. Runs like a top.
Love the CZ75 design and feel...
I remember the Jericho...
I wish I could say the same about my M&P 15-22. That is the most finicky gun I've ever laid my hands on about ammo. I'll zero one brand of ammo at 50 yds and shoot all day long with no problem. Switch brands and it'll be a foot to the left and a foot high. Shoot a few magazines of those and switch back to brand A and its back dead on. Switch to brand C and it'll be a foot to the right and 6" low. It won't feed Federal .22s more than 2 or 3 in a row either. I buy .22s whenever I can, so I have a few different brands, but that gun, almost ruined me of S&W autos, but my 9mm Shield has had zero issues with A LOT of rounds through it. My 10/22 would move maybe an inch or two between different brands, but that S&W was crazy in its variances.
That is odd to get THAT much deviation at 50yds... Very odd.
Every barrel has its favorite ammo, but damn....
Are you shooting target and/or match ammo?
I find that stanky anchovy cheeze match ammo shoots best in most of mine.
Some know what ammo already, if you smell it once, you will know too...
You can be several feet away when someone shoots it and you'll think something rotten had just farted....
I (and the M&P) ,like the Federal XM193 55gr. FMJ.
I bought it on sale as a "fun gun," put a 3-9 scope on it and as long as you only shoot one brand of ammo out of the same lot you're golden, though here, you can only buy a "brick" or three "boxes" at a time, so you can only get so much at a time. It's frustrating to say the least at its inconsistencies. I ended up putting one of my leftover red dots on it and within 25 yds its accurate enough to still hit cans, so its fun enough, just not what i intended it for. Even at 50 yds, I'd take my 22/45 in an accuracy contest, if that puts it in perspective.
i'll save the good ammo for the Browning 52
It's the primers.
You NEVER forget that smell!
I was at the range one day some years back shooting my 541X.... A bud of mine walked over and gave me a brick of Aguila Match to try in the 541X. First round I thought somebody had just shit themselves at the bench next to me....
It stinks, but it is some of the best rimfire I've come across and those farty primers are pretty reliable. I really like federal match in the bulk boxes too, but for my money they make better ammo south of the border for sure.
They also have a lock on all kinds of bullet weights and loads. I'd say anyone wanting to really dial in a rimfire could do a lot worse than stocking up on a few bricks of every conceivable variety.
Nice!! I can't believe how accurate this gun is with factory set sights right out of the box. I got just 60 rounds thru it and loving it so far. My optics, case and sling will be here wed.
