Latest model 9c questions

Hi everyone. I'm going to get a new 9c after having to sell my other one a couple years ago. I don't plan on doing any upgrades to the pistol other than night sights. I'm curious----is the trigger improved in the newest models? I'm also wondering if these guns can shoot after being submerged. I read somewhere that they can't, but if not, then why?
Thanks for any input you have!

Can't shoot after being submerged? The 'net is full of all kinds of horse manure. I agree, why not?

Trying to make sense of the incomprehensible... Maybe water in the firing pin hole and hydraulic compression? But dry firing it will rid it of that and lots of guns have a firing pin hole. Sounds like BS to me though I admit I never submerged my M&P and tried to fire it after removing it from the water. Or do they mean while it's submerged? I'd never try that with any gun other than a spear gun.

Can't help with the other and I doubt I helped with what I wrote.

FWIW, I have yet to find a trigger that can't be made better and I did that with my 9c so I'm a very poor judge. I'm very trigger sensitive.

Unless your scuba diving with your M&P why would it matter.
Id venture to guess it would work just fine.
Assuming it was not long enough under water to soak the ammo.
Pretty sure the mechanics of the weapon would function under water its the ammo that would likely malfunction.

Water and gun powder are not really compatible

Your right Brian....lol. I just posted a youtube video proving that the 9c WILL fire under water...lol
So i will assume, that once out of the water, it would likely still fire too.

Maybe this is the video showing hydrolock?


Don't know but I would not worry to much about it unless you plan to swim with your gun on.

Interesting. Thanks for that. I didn't know that there was a name for that. Yeah, that's what I meant. I also didn't know that it was a real problem only that it might be.

But I don't think it's a problem for most people. Note to self... don't go swimming with the M&P and then expect to use it without malfunctions. OK, that means I just continue to use it as I've been using it.

I've seen this and another very similar (second one even says it's a response to this one). Has no value to me, as my gun will never go through anything like this. Seems to me a more appropriate test like what if I fell in water and then shook my gun out a little? Or I fell in the mud and shook it out quickly. I'm thinking almost any gun would be just fine, so no story, no video? Anyway, I'll take a gun that looks good (to me), feels good in my hand, and I shoot very well, over a gun that fails my three tests, but shoots in conditions my guns will never see.

If this test has any value to you at all...shouldn't you own only revolvers?
