    New to my collection

    Since I couldn't find a Miata that was well priced locally, I decided I would buying something else to enjoy. Stopped by the Dixie show here in Charlotte, NC. Walked out with:

    S&W M&P .45
    S&W M&P 9mm

    And a new AR-15 (Ecotec with 3x mag, S&W lower), bought it from Randy's Guns. Partly because they use a local NC company to manufacture the uppers. American made AND good quality, can't beat that.

    I am thinking about making the .45 my new carry. I absolutely LOVE the way the M&P feels in my hand.

    Good stuff! Looks like the .45 is on the right...

    Those guns are amazing and now you have a great range gun with the 9 that is cheap to shoot and a .45 you can OC everywhere and never worry about the misnomer called "stopping power."

    Took them to the range today. Had an absolute BLAST (No pun intended). .45 really is an awesome round. Got the AR sighted in. Really impressed with the M&P - dead on accurate. I really like the sights. Now to find good holsters.
