I thought about starting a new thread, but my question is so close to this topic, just a variation of it really.
I will be shooting open, in that I realized how much better an RDS made me shoot a pistol with my aging eyes. I love my STI Edge in 40SW and I also have a STI Tactical 5.0 in 45ACP. While I love them, I just find the mags too much of a liability (dirty, dusty ones jamming) to count on them for my carry gun. Since I want to train like I live, I was thinking about mounting an Trijicon RMR on a M&P. The question is, what caliber- with the thought that 3-gun is what I mostly shoot and USPSA would be the other place where I might use it (I have enough trouble getting to the three gun matches I want to go to.) Seems from the discussion that 9mm is the way to go.
The added wrinkle is that I might want to shoot my LMT MWS from time to time as my rifle, though I have a well set-up 556AR for three gun. Outside of He-man Iron sighted matches, is the mismatch of the 9mm pistol with a 308 rifle that much of an issue?
I'm never going to be a top tier shooter, I just want to rationalize gun selection. I'm in the process of trying to reduce platforms and calibers. The M&P is a nod to more economical guns than the STIs and 9mm to eventually bringing my wife on board.
