two questions about M&P9 and ammo.
Are you guys planning on getting a M&P 9mm Range kit in stock?
I want to try and buy few different ammo's for my 9mm handgun, is there any specific rules on ammo? or any kind of ammo is allowed?
For example, is 'PCM 124gr fmj' and 'Blazer 115gr fmj' no problem to shoot in range?
Thanks for your help.

Depends on the range. Some have certain requirements some do not.
Usually if they do for pistol, they don't want you using something like steel core.
Usually restrictions will apply more to what you can shoot at what targets. Small indoor pistol ranges need you to use THEIR frangible ammo only if shooting high power rifle. Larger outdoor ranges might only let you shoot certain calibers at certain distance targets and have a MAX calilber size restriction.
For example, my range, rifle cannot be shot at the 50y gongs, I cannot shoot pistol at the 100y gongs, and the max caliber is 338 lapua.
So, for a typical range, if that ammo is the typical lead jacketed variety, unless you're M&P9 magically shoots a 50BMG cartridge, you're probably good to go with either of those options.

The only ammo we do not allow on our range is steel core surplus, AP ammo or incendiary ammo.
Ammo such as MFS which has a mild steel jacket is safe to use in our range. The brands you listed, PMC and Blazer both make range safe ammo. If you have doubts, talk to one of our helpful range officers when you are in the facility!
