I just finished cleaning and lubricating my new FS 9mm and had a question. Do I need to run some lube down the bore? The instructions I followed in the manual did not say to, but I seem to recall hearing that I should. This is my first handgun and I really don't want to screw it up! Thanks in advance!

I normally run a patch with a light coating of Rem Oil through my FS M&P 357Sig/40S&W and also my FS M&P9 on my last step of cleaning the barrel. Notice I said "light coating". This has worked well for me in the last Year and a half.

+1 on "light coating" of Rem Oil (or other light lubricant/protectant, not WD-40), intended as rust prevention not some type of bullet lubrication.

the bore doesn't need lubed
lube in the chamber area can cause failures to extract.
The only time I lube the bores on my weapons is when I an putting them away and not planning to shoot them for a long time (like years)
Then I clean them with solvent before shooting

I lube my barrel every time I clean it with Hoppes #9. I do it because it prevents the inside of the barrel from rusting and because it makes the bullets faster.

The women, TOF, or the bullets?
I live in humid Florida. I run a protectant (CLP) through it if I plan on storing the gun for a while. My weekly shooters, I don't worry about. Funny, my first round is smokey after a heavy cleaning as the oils burn up. Its noticeable.
PS... Most fast women don't need any lube, but preservative???

A stainless barrel like the M&P series has is not likely rust if stored properly. Nevertheless, since I have dozens of guns in my collection and I don't know when I will shoot one again, I always run a lightly oiled patch through the bore before putting them away. I always run a dry patch through the bore when I get ready to take one out to shoot. Every week I pull one gun out in turn to recheck and reoil the the bore so I don't get any surprises. Every one of my three safes has a dehumidifier and the basement they are in is humidity controlled year round.
I may pay less attention to my guns with stainless or plated bores but I am particularly careful with some of my guns that may fire corrosive ammo. After a thorough hot water flush I Shooters Choice Aquaclean water based bore solvent and follow up with hoppes Nol 9 and then an oiled patch. I recheck and reoil those bores again in a few days.

I always brush and clean with Hoppes #9, run patches until they come out clean. Then a light swab of rem oil and run a few patches to remove any excess oil on all my barrels
