  1. M&P M2.0 Compact 9mm First Impressions

    You have not come across as annoyed at all. Rather, with patience in trying to understand my point of view and have offered good advice. Thank you! [emoji5] Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  2. S&W Announce New 380 Shield EZ

    Actually I purchased it over a year ago. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  3. S&W Announce New 380 Shield EZ

    You were the one that got me to look at Keltec again. I too, hated the PF9. Very painful at the range and mine kept dropping the mag every two or three rounds. But then you talked about how great the little P32 was, so I found me a used Gen 1. It's now my favorite pocket gun with ball loaded! Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    That's why I may go rent or borrow one to try out. Thanks for the advice though. I really appreciate yours and Garufu' input. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    They don't sound like the original M&P either, so I might be interested in a 2.0. And I have a Glock. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  6. M&P M2.0 Compact 9mm First Impressions

    A smooth take up, with a slight stack and a clean break. I can handle a long take up like on a Taurus PT111 Millennium G2, as long as it does what I like. The best trigger I found on a striker fire so far is on a FNH FNS and my Glock 17. They are about even. The worst was the M&P Compact. I'd compare It to a FEG copy of the Browning Hi-Power, I owned back in the early 90's. It was gritty and in no way smooth. The stack before it broke felt like it was hanging up, till you put a little extra effort into it. All the pistols I own or have owned, have been factory. I don't modify them in any way. I've had my Glock 17 since 1990. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    Thanks! I guess I was guilty of reading the instructions. Boy, just went to the Smith & Wesson Forum to read about alternative disassembly of M&Ps. Don't go over there and tell them that you got passed flicking that little safety lever down, by dry firing the pistol! Apparently S&W installed that as a extra safety step to cut back on NDs. Glocks were disparaged because they don't have this step and people got shot when failing to check the chamber, before dry firing the pistol for disassembly.

    So you don't have to flip the lever down or up whatever direction it called for in the disassembly instructions with some sort of pointy tool? That's a plus!!! Having cut my teeth with pistols on the 1911a1 in the military, having to have a tool to take down any weapon for basic maintenance just sorta irked me. Seriously, how is the trigger? I do not want to spend another $150 for another part to make a pistol perform the way it should, straight out of the box. I really want to like these pistols, since S&W is an American company, but once burned...
  9. M&P M2.0 Compact 9mm First Impressions

    So S&W still hasn't fixed the trigger? :/ I purchased a Gen 1 Compact two years ago in .45ACP and was very disappointed. Not only with the trigger (the most horrid trigger I had ever experienced on a $400+ pistol), but with the pistol as a whole. It felt extremely clunky and unbalanced. Not to mention that it required a tool for take down; another negative for me. I tried my best to like it, but ultimately ended up trading it away two months later for an Springfield XDs .45 ACP (which I still have, shoot and carry). Accuracy was on par for a polymer striker fired pistol and it was reliable. Never had any issues with that at all (but just 200 rounds of mostly ball). Honestly, my experience with this pistol has kept me away from the Shield in any caliber.

    I too, have always wanted one of the older .44 spl Bulldogs. But you don't see them much anymore. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    Sigh... thanks guys for reminding that I still want one if these. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  13. New Glock 19X model

    Wish other manufacturers would start following this trend of selling the pistol with three mags. And great point about holsters.

    I have one of their Lock Back Trappers, great pocket knife. I'm not much into tactical these days, mostly because everyone else is. I also have a Copperhead that was given to be and which introduced me to the brand. It's also a great little knife. Later on, I added a locking Canoe. That's my fancy occasions knife. I always have a pocket knife on me. SMKW works has a great gun counter and they sale ammunition at really good prices. And Bud's Gun Shop and Range is just a block away (an easy walk) as is a very good Coleman Store, if you are into camping.
  15. New Glock 19X model

    Seems to be a rich man's FNH FNS. Doubt it comes with a 3rd mag like the FNH does though and probably sells for a $100+ more. Doesn't excite me that much. I will just hang on to my FNH.
