M&P 22 Range Report

Went to the desert this weekend to shoot...well, everything I own. That just so happened to include my new M&P 22.

It was windy out, so sand was blowing everywhere, and I honestly didn't expect all of my guns to function flawlessly. I fired about 500 rounds through the M&P 22. It seemed to like Winchester's M22 ammo the best.

The M&P 22 is pretty accurate. We were popping holes in water bottles pretty easily from 10, 15, and 25 yards. I don't like that it does not have a three dot sight, but its not a big deal.

The grip felt pretty good in both my wife's hands, and my hands. The overall size of it is very akin to most full size handguns, which makes it ideal for cheap practice for your full size center fire handguns, especially if you have another handgun in the M&P line.

I don't personally like the safety, but it works. If you don't like it, I suppose you can keep it off.

The gun performed far more reliably than I thought it would. I fired 499 consecutive rounds through it without a hitch, but the very last round I fired out of it for the day had a failure to feed. I'd like to think it was the ammo's fault, but I was in a desert, so who knows?

Overall, I'd recommend this gun to anyone that asked me about it. I paid 350 for it, but I don't think I would pay too much more than that. Try it before you buy it though!

My MP .22 was given me by my best buddy on my latest trip to Texas. What a neat pistol, functions flawlessly but would like a shorter front sight as it prints about an inch low. Not a bad enough problem to keep it from taking 24 raccoons (with help from my M&P 15-22). Yes, they could have left the safety in Germany..I read somewhere a fellow sells a kit to remove it, about $20 bucks so I will live with mine.
