always wanted to like M&P but man, in hand, for me, they were always super uninspiring. maybe that new one, with the trigger folk are hooting about.. but the same hooties like h.outlaw also blowfished the Kimber Mako R7 so the jury is still out, during rigging.Try the M&P Shield, the higher capacity. Also the Shield EZ is a nice carry gun. SA has a nice XD sub compact also a Helcat. As other poster said, try to rent some. Your hands will know. None of these are particularly expensive and companies stand behind their products.
A plastic squirt gun?Well, it would have to be proven reliable (lots of users, lots of uses), should be polymer to protect it from sweat in the summer and cold/moisture in the winter, easy to clean/maintain, easy to load magazines (I've got a few nasty mags), and most of all, it should fit my hand readily. That only leaves me one choice.
I agree with the Staccato recommendation. I have been a Sig Legion fan for a long time but the Staccato takes it to another level. But they do not come cheap!Staccato C, Staccato C2, BUL SAS II Ultralight, Anything from Nighthawk, Triarc Tri-11, maybe Dan Wesson
What??I hear CZs have a tendency to break parts frequently, it's the only thing holding me back from getting one. Is that not true?
I'd heard reports of slide stops and trigger return springs breaking. If that's not true, I'm glad to hear it. I may get a Shadow II for USPSA carry optics.What??
I have 10's of thousands of full-power rounds thru my assortment of 9mm CZ's. NEVER broken anything. Never had to send a pistol back for repair. Only replaced recoil springs as a routine PM. As reliable or more so than my Sigs, several of which had to re-visit the factory.
However, folks who 'tinker' with what the factory has engineered as a superbly reliable combat-ready pistol in stock form.....like anything....proceed at one's own risk. But don't blame others for the results -JMO
