Smith & Wesson M&P 9 Performance Center Ported

    At the halfway point of SHOT Show I’ve already visited Smith & Wesson three times: once to get some trigger time at Industry Day at the Range and two separate occasions at their enormous booth on the main floor. During the latest visit I took a look at their M&P 9 Performance Center Ported handgun, which is precisely what it sounds like, an M&P that’s ported.


    As the rep noted this model has gained instant popularity for its minimal muzzle flip.
