Default My first range trip with first handgun m&p 45

Just got this M&P 45FS and love it. Trigger is a little heavy but I'm not that good of a shot anyway. I'll give it a couple more range trips before doing a DIY trigger job or APEX kit. Blacked out the rear white dots and was surprised how much that helped.

Don't remember how many rounds but it was at 7-10 yards.

Not bad shooting. Don't be in a big rush to work on the trigger. Mine gets smoother each time I take it out.

First time I've heard of someone blacking out the rear sights, and I've been shooting a long time and carried a gun on duty for 32+ years. At close ranges, you only really head the front sight, but open it up some and you're going to need the rear sight too.

I qualified for years at 25 yards and when I go to the range I can hit a 10"x15" steel plate at 60+ yards consistently. You need rear sights for that. I can hit it with my revolvers double action, my Ruger MKIII, my 92f, Glock 19, and all three of my M&Ps

Thanks for the advice. I'll keep that in mind. I blacked them out because for some reason my eyes kept focusing on them. I never had that happen before and it was making it difficult to keep the front sight focused. I might need to get my eyes checked haha.

Looks like you're good to go and are naturally comfortable with the M&P.

Great gun, congrats. I put 10-8 rear sites on my M&P - they have no dots, and with a front fiber optic your eye can pick it up fast. But as others said - dont rush to change things right away. Get use to it, consider your options, research, then change it if you still want to. Have fun !

The trigger is getting better everytime I shoot it. I think dry firing has sped that along. From what I've read I'll probably be happy with it once it breaks in completely.
