I got it today. I like it, a lot. My only issues are the gritty trigger, the need incredible friggen difficulty of engaging and disengaging the slidelock.

Also the front sight. Maybe (well, I do) have bad vision, but IIRC the front sight should be in focus not the rear. The opposite was happening to me. I saw the rear sights clearly but the front was vague. Probably enough to hit a close target but I'm not sure I trust that. Perhaps an ugrade is in order?

Congrats! The slide lock is easier with a loaded mag than empty. I think that's by design. I had a Kahr that way also. The trigger grit will work itself out after a few hundred rounds, or you can check that powerpoint I put up there to see which surfaces to smooth.

For sights, I'd recommend Truglo TFOs. They use both tritium and fiber optics so you get a bright green dot in daylight (where some tritium sights are washed-out), and a bright green dot at night. You can purchase them here.

Congrats! It takes training to focus on the front sight instinctively. Luckily this is free to practice at home. Some sights are definitely easier to focus on than others though.

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.

Boggles my mind that the largest backstrap feels the most comfortable, or has the best grip for me. I have girly hands.

So I got some hornady critical duty (FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

and I managed to lose the spring retaining thingy from one of my magazines while inebriated. So I have two of those on order from midway. If you want to kill me, PLEASE, die with 13 rounds in you instead of 26.

Oh, and while I succesfully stippled one backstrap (the medium one) I completely fucked up the small one. Thanks, alcohol!

I still can't clearly focus on the front sight without glasses. So I will have to replace that or buy a laser like I originally stated. Not that anyone cares.

That looks good to me. Have you considered doing the front? I'd like my front strap done, but I don't have the guts to mess with it myself.

Have you had a chance to shoot your M&P yet? I love mine - I just wish I had the chance to shoot more often. Lack of places to go and money for ammo -- Sad

Not yet. Perhaps sometime soon after I finish my tour of jury duty.

Yeah I did the front later. It was a little more challenging because the plastic is a lot harder than the backstrap. I just took my time and it turned out pretty good. Sorry, I don't have pics of it because it's not my gun.
