    Nice day! Looking at the M&P series myself. Hoping that the shield eventually makes its way onto the DOJ list of approved guns as the only thing keeping me from jumping in head first is the width with the double stack mags. Let us know how she likes em!

    Love the M&P series. I also own an FNX 9 and 40, Smith 22A and 642 Talo. The Talo is not seen in the photo but the rest shown below are M&Ps.

    I wasn't a fan of the M&P ONLY bc of the trigger. I LOVED the ergonomics. It melted into my hand. I had only dry fired them. So, I wanted to give them a fair chance and borrowed a buddy's to shoot (Flat earth as you posted). Honestly, the trigger was a non-issue during live fire. I shot it very well. I did notice that EVERYTIME I slammed a new mag in, the slide went forward on it's own, I never had to rack it. SWEET gun!! To quote James Yeager,"Either you can shoot, or you can't." I thought that the trigger was going to be an issue and it wasn't.

    I've been wanting to get one for a while. As to your wife training with the full size...that's great, but as you know, she should spend an equal amount of time shooting what she carries.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    NY27 absolutely correct she will practice with the Shield often but in some classes a mini gun can be at a disadvantage hence the full size.

    Nice M&P's. One of the best features often overlooked is the melonite finish, handles holster wear exceptionally well.

    My main CC is a M&P40C. It has been flawless through over 1,000 rounds.

    Great choice! I love my M&P40. Would like to get a M&P22 to go with my M&P15-22. By far the best mod has to be the Apex DCAEK, it took 20 minutes to install and dropped my trigger to 5lbs and made it really smooth.
    Here's a picture of mine with the slide polished out.

    If this is true, then I will probably transition to M&P pistols myself. I like the idea of having just one trigger pull to learn, whether I shoot a single-stack (Shield), a compact (M&P9c), a full-size (M&P9), or trainer (M&P22). I just wish the Shield and M&P22 were available without external safeties for consistency.

    Xtalman. I believe the safety on the M&P's can be removed or installed rather easily.
