Default Yet another M&P

Went down to my LGS to order a Rock Island 1911 9mm after doing some research and checking one out over the past couple of weeks. I was very excited to to own a 1911 since I've never had one. I don't personally see the practicality in them, but I think they're great shooter's.
Well I walked in and saw a used M&P Pro 9mm with 4 factory mags for $430 out the door. Guess what I came home with? It didn't have any of the back straps. It had a Hogue wrap around grip, which I didn't like. I did happen to have 2 extra back straps for my M&P 2.0 and they fit quite nicely.

Shot it yesterday. It shoots way over to the left. After a quick inspection, the front sight is too far over to the right. I'll have to get that centered.

My first pistol was a 1911 I made from an 80%. Great experience in learning but way too heavy to carry. Great technology for 1911 but in 2018 there are better choices.

I carry a Light Weight Commander a lot of times and with the right holster an all steel commander sometimes without any issues. The secret is in the holster you choose.
