Anyone carrying a Smith M&P auto
After a lot of research and searching I finaly put money down on an M&P full size 40cal. My regular carry is a J frame and I didn't buy the M&P with the intention of making it my carry. I personaly didn't feel that the M&P was the safest gun to carry unless it was in a rigid Kydex holster or similar. It doesn't have the thumb safety and, if you own one, you know how gentle the trigger is compared to a DA revolver. It's almost exactly like a SA auto with the hammer cocked. Once the slide is racked back the weapon is 98% cocked and the trigger does little more than release the striker. I seem to recall though that I have seen guys on this forum who carry an M&P and would like to get your feedback and opinions on it. I fully understand that the shooter is the most important safety but it sure seems like the M&P would be far less forgiving than most. From what I've read it is very similar to the glock which has one of if not the highest incidences of negligent discharges with police departments. Above most other things the trigger needs to be absolutely protected. If you carry what do you use and how do you feel about it's safety for concealed carry. The police have an advantage in that their holsters and carry method do not need to conceal the weapon.
