I own a 6" S&W PPC 9. I do not have access to a ransom rest but off sand bags the gun will shoot all X's at the 25 and all 10's at the 50. I am not as proficient with the semi as the revolver but it is the most impressive firearm I own. I have small hands but the S&W grip is not an issue. Many times I have bought guns and wished I had gotten something else. I would happily buy another S&W PPC 9. When you order the S&W you don't have to ask for any extras. The guns comes match ready with tri-set aristocrat sights, beveled mag well, checkered front strap, extended magazine release and a good smooth light trigger. The PPC 9 is also about half the price as the STI gun. It may be hard to tell, but I kinda like the S&W.
