That is why they offer a duty/carry and competition kits.

Fixed it for you.

Trigger jobs aren't necessary. My m&p has 6,000 plus through it the only trigger mod is the apex RAM for a better reset. The trigger has worked itself out and is as smooth as a babies bottom. If your impatient or don't shoot just have a gunsmith smooth out the components and it will be fine. Those whole kits aren't necessary.

Holster? What material do you like leather? Kydex? Do you like the king tuck or something simpler? I use a Glaco sto-n-go for IWB it's leather and reasonably priced.

FWIW, Apex's new FSS trigger kit comes with two trigger return springs now, the 2nd spring being heavier to keep the pull above 5lb. Just throwing that one out there as another option for ya. If I carried a compact instead of a Shield, that's the kit I'd go for. I have the FSS in my Pro and everyone who has shot it really likes it. Add the heavier trigger pull and I think you'd have the best of both worlds, IMO.

Completely untrue. If that was the case, why would Apex make a Duty/Carry trigger kit.

I didn't know that. That's pretty cool, I wish I could install the FSS kit and still stay in the production class. Guess I will have to make do with the competition kit. (Unless I decide to build a race gun lol)

I ended up purchasing a hybrid holster from Old Faithful holsters. It is pretty much a replica of a Crossbreed. Has a 30 money back guarantee and a 50 year warranty. It is almost half the price of a Crossbreed. I will let you know about the quality when it comes. It got good reviews around the net though.

Lots of differing opinions about the trigger job. I think I might wait and see if it smooths out. I might even try having someone smooth off the edges like someone suggested. Any opinions on this? Is it a safe thing to do to your gun?

It is safe to do if you know what you u are doing. The sear is hard on the outside and soft inside so if you polish too much then you will compromise the integrity if it. Best to let a gunsmith do it. Unless you feel comfortable with it. Good news is that anything that you would need to polish is easily replaced so u can't mess up anything too bad.

Yeah it's not too hard I'm sure you can you tube it. http://burwellguns.com/. These guys do awesome work if you can't find a local smith. I only bought a rear sight from them but I've considered getting more work from them. They're awesome.
