I was finally able to put my hands on a Shield yesterday at Scheel's in Iowa City. It was not what I had expected.
The only M&P I've had an opportunity to fire is my brother-in-law's M&P22. That pistol has a fantastic trigger. I had expected something similar on the Shield. I was disappointed.
The first half of the trigger pull was very easy, then I hit a wall. It felt as if the trigger went from 3 lbs to 13 in an instant, and it was crunchy. Has anyone else found this in the pistol?
