I find it hard to feel the reset when firing live ammo, dry presses, no problem. I am a bit spoiled, I shoot a 1911 with a 3# trigger, not a fair comparison to the M&P, but they could improve it some. The M&P is a good gun, if it fits your needs.
I almost wish I were a big ole gal or dressed like a guy (not really) so I could carry my fs and be happy.

Good luck with the search. I ordered a IWB holster for my M&P9c, might make it a good carry option. Of course, the wait time is around December, merry Christmas to me?

Nice! Im thinking I'll gift myself a fancy carry purse or maybe a flashbang holster.

carrying IWB isn't a good choice for me because I constantly have a baby or a toddler on my hip and Id hate for one of them to kick it and hurt themselves or me or the gun.

The carry purses are nice. Make sure you get one with a reinforced strap. Some even have piano wire in them, you are not going to snag that easily.

OK, I don't own a purse, but was an extra set of safety eyes when a friend of mine taught an all female class a while back. Could be a great way to carry, but, is not attached to your body, so could be a problem. I am sure you have thought about these things. In the end, get the gun you can carry and be proficient at.

I am really hoping this holster will work for at least cold weather.

My husband carries his 9c IWB and it conceals fairly nicely. When he has a jacket on its near invisible.

(She means around the house. I don't have a CC permit here in Kalifornia, so I am unarmed outside the house.)

I am waiting on jacket weather... Comes a little later in the south.

Look into the Beretta Nano as well. It's quite well built, a single stack 9mm, less than a inch thick, points quite naturally. And as I am a lefty as well it adapts itself well to us? No external slide lock though it does lock back on an empty mag. And the mag release is swappable. I have fired many sub compacts but this one seems to aim far more naturally than the others. Nowadays it comes with a 6 and an 8 round magazine. And mine eats anything I feed it. I've got about 8-900 rounds through it with ONE FTE. And that was way back when I first got it.

Something else to consider for about 400 bones.

Thanks! I hadn't even considered that yet. I'll look into it.

How is the trigger on the gun? I've read its right around a 5 pound pull, but is it mushy? Crisp? Does it break clean?

How does the trigger compare to other guns in the same class?
