I have joined the handgun club. Needed something for home defense and for backcountry camping with my wife and dog.
Picked up a new Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm yesterday....


Congrats! Nice choice and 9mm will be fine.

Picked up a couple boxes of Federal American Eagle for practice and a box of the Federal Hydrashock hollow points for actually carrying.


You may already know this but run some of those defense rounds through your gun as well to make sure there aren't any feed issues with the hollowpoints.


Anyway, nice piece.  Enjoy.

I will. Thanks for the advice. I'm gonna head out in a day or two to an outdoor unrestricted shooting "area" by the great salt lake to lay waste to some cans and paper targets.

Thanks man! yeah. I spent several hours over the course of a couple days down at the Cabela's out here asking lots of questions of multiple people and ended up handling a couple dozen pistols. The M&P's ergonomics were the clear victor and the reviews were good and I was told by all of the guys that it was a solid choice. I'm excited, but really apprehensive and kind of anxious about it. I grew up with rifles and shotguns, but not handguns. The fact that I knew deep down that I NEEDED to own a handgun now... it was a feeling of unease. But the wife agreed. I couldn't imagine being in a situation where I couldn't protect her, if something would happen to her because I couldn't. So... yup. I own a gun now. :/
Next thing is to get a rifle of some sort, perhaps. And get my dad to mail me my little Browning .22 lever action that he got me for my 12th birthday.

This is the dubstep of video editing and I dislike it immensely.

M&P is 1911 angles with Glock reliability.

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

I have a question for all of you 12 gauge guys /turkey guys. i got my mossberg 535 on a trade, and all i know about it is that I have 4 chokes and 2 barrels. I know about the chokes and everything, but i'm unclear as to which barrel to use? i'm only gonna shoot clays with it this week and to be honest I have only put 5 shells through it since I got it because I went back to school the next week.

it looks identical to top gun in this picture, i have the smaller 24" barrel not currently on the gun, and the 28" on the gun.



my question is, which barrel is better suited for shooting clays? if one is better for that, then what do I use the other barrel for?
also, can i take the strap mount thingy out of the cap that tightens the barrel down? it appears to be screwed into the cap of the barrel that isn't on the gun, but seems really tight. the other one has threads i just dont want to start trying to take it out and fuck it up.

it says that this gun will take 2.75-3.5" shells, are there any clay specific/cheap/certain size (or shot, etc) loads that i should get? i had used some that my old man had laying around before but i'm going to pick up a couple boxes for when i go on my own.
which choke would be better suited for shooting clays?

thanks

For clays use the 28" barrel as it has a bead sight (better for birds and clays) and will give you a better swing.

Run the cheapest birdshot/skeet shells you can find. I never pay more than $5 or $6 per box of generic birdshot for messing around.

For the choke, just bring them all and ask the guys at the range. I run open chokes on my defense guns so I'm not the best one to ask. Lol

I shot a Mosin Nagant last weekend. Great guns, it was my friends and they had just bought it for $89. They put a pica-tinny rail ob it with a scope. Super loud but almost no kick, I like that. Shot his whole arsenal of guns that he had on his ranch.

Probably not. To put rails on, people take the front iron sights off and replace it with an insert for a rail system.
