    Like everyone else has said don't be scared because there is no manual safety. People carried revolvers for years with out any safeties on them. Just make sure nothing is in your holster when you are holstering. If you've got a good quality holster like a Crossbreed then nothing is going to make that trigger pull except for you!

    Good luck!

    I carry a M&P compact and it is in a IWB holster. Put your fears to rest by doing a simple test. If you have access to reloading, take a resized case with a live primer, no bullet or powder and chamber it in your gun. Then with safety glasses and the gun pointed in a safe direction and your finger off the trigger, tap the muzzle on a wooden table, tap it on its side, slam it down on the table on the mag baseplate, even drop it on the table. It never goes off until YOU pull the trigger.

    I carry a Full Size M&P357Sig/40S&W with Crimson Trace Laser Grip everyday. Right now I have my 40S&W barrel in and I will probably be changing back to my 357Sig barrel in about a month from now when I break down my handgun for cleaning. This handgun conceals great for me and both calibers hit hard at self defense ranges and very controllable for me.

    Excellent answers. I carry my M&Pc appendix in a holster custom-fit to the gun. Its retention of the weapon and covering of the guard ease concern a lot. Reholster, "reluctantly", as Gabe Suarez says. Nobody ever lost a gunfight reholstering too slowly.

    I have the 9c with the ambidextrous safety. I draw from IWB at 4:00 in about 1 second with shirt untucked and muscle memory from constant practice takes care of the safety. Rarely I'll slip it into a front pocket or in my wasteband at 2:00. I'm always locked and loaded so thinking of a loaded gun pointed at my giblets or ass without the addtion of the second safety is my preference especially since the safety doesn't slow me down not one bit.

    I've carried an M&P 45 for about a year now and I've never had any concerns about it going off when I carry a round in the chamber. I feel 110% confident in carrying it that way! I carry it in a Blackhawk Serpa holster and there has never been a problem!

To all you owners out there that have had it for a little bit how do you carry it and are you worried about the no safety thing at all? Thanks. I'm a relative newbie at the CC thing.
    what would you be "worried" about...if you have a proper holster(that covers the trigger) and you keep your finger OFF the trigger unless you have to shoot it...what can go "wrong"???? just be carefull when holstering/reholstering(if you for some reason have to take it out of the holster) and you will be fine.

    The trick is just making sure that you have a holster that points the muzzle in a direction you're comfortable with and covers the trigger guard completely.
    And make darn sure you're careful when inserting it into the holster.

    I had the same concerns the OP does when I first got my M&P40c and still do not use it as a carry piece. I much prefer the 1911 style and it's many safeties as my carry piece.

    I have the compact 9 as a CC and I will admit that even with a good holster the lack of a safety and carrying chambered makes me nervous.

    ok simple reason for those nervous people..WHY does it make you nervous..if the trigger does not get puller it cant go off ..if its in a proper CC holster that covers trigger..how is it going to go off...what makes you nervous about this? IF these things make you so nervous why not order the M&P with the additional nervous person safety? you can get it on the M&P.

    thats just like the guy with the 1911 that thinks cocked and locked is "scary"...how in a holster for that to fire even with one in the chamber and the hammer back you would simultaneously have to pull trigger, unlock the backstrap safety and on top of that undo the thumb safety while still inside a holster....

    same deal with the M&P but with less parts..its in a holster whats going to pull the trigger and make it go off?

    and if your worried about the gun please QUIT driving because you COULD have a blowout at speed and crash and die, and quit using electricity..because if you turn something on it COULD have a short in it and electrocute you to death, and no more swimming you could drown...

    Spec....your comment is an interesting one. I'm still trying to determine which M&P frame I'll buy into, I'll be getting one for sure. While looking at them at a couple of local shops, I noticed that the safety action is short and soft (easy). Have you figured out yet just what is kicking that lever down?
