    Mix here as well.

    Shield, of course, has one
    9 Compact doesn't
    9 FS did, but I removed it
    .45c currently has one, but only got it because it was a deal at the time and knew I could eventually remove it...and Smith only sent one set instead of the two I asked for when I called in.

    So I have a mix, but my preference is without.

    No safety for me...not on a carry weapon. If I have to use it, I don't want ANYTHING to think about, except front sight focus and press.
    No mag disconnect either, the only safety I want on an EDC is the one between my ears.

    Hunting and target weapons is a completely different subject. Just my $.02

    Put me down for no safety. I was originally very interested in the XDM's because of all their "safety" features when buying my first hand gun. Then the more I researched and learned I came to the opinion that those are only distractions and your only true safety is your brain and finger. If I ever have to pull my gun I want to know all i have to worry about is getting on target and pulling the trigger.

    The safety on the regular M&P line is too big and obtrusive. I don't mind the safety on the Shield at all, barely even notice it.

    ya when i asked if you noticed it, i meant when carring it when its holstered, shoulda been more specific. just looks like it would dig through the holster maybe.

    .40 full size with a safety. Since I also own a HK USP and 1911 variant the safety seemed like a good idea.

    Well, since the term "M&P stood for a Smith & Wesson model that came without a safety throughout the 20th century put me down for no safety.

    I have three center fire M&P semi-auto's- .45 full size, 9mm full size, and 9mm compact. All without manual safeties or magazine disconnects.

    I also have an M&P .22 semi-auto. It is not available without the manual safety. I purchased the .22 to have the same shooting feel and manual of arms as my center fire M&P's so I followed the instructions from someone on the S&W forum and disassembled the .22, removed the safety lever (in the off-safe position of course) and reassembled. Now they are all as close as I can get them to feeling the same!
