Here.

I'm guessing it was that pesky "safe action" trigger again...

No shortage these days of short, light trigger pulls on plastic guns with no safety other than the trigger.
But perfection probably has the biggest market share.

Yep, my tongue was lodged firmly in my cheek on that one.

I nearly bought a Glock yesterday; I may yet.

Better the Copy by S&W, the SD9 VE, $280 locally and has a $25 rebate!

Geoff
Who notes the SD trigger is like the NY trigger from Glock, but I like the Walther Creed hammer system better than either the S&W or the Glock.

I regularly carry the M&P Compact in .45 but I'm considering another plastic gun in -shudder- 9MM just because.

The only 9 I have currently is a P-38 which doesn't get shot much but I seem to have acquired a whole bunch of 9MM ball ammo.

Coulda been an S&W M&P or M&P Shield, among other possibilities.

Possibly, but the M&P trigger has a longer stroke than Gaston's Glory, which leads the known universe in AD/ND/UD happenings. When we looked for a replacement for our 1006s, simply mentioning that DC Metro averaged one such event a month for 14 years eliminated Glock. That was in 1992, wonder what their average is now?

I dunno, but the fact remains; bad things can and will happen with any of them due to inappropriate contact with the bang switch.

The Differences Are Minor...

...and the biggest issues are operator- and training-related.

Take a look at what happened on LASD when they went from the DA/SA Beretta 92F to the M&P:

Any way you look at it, the best safety is between the shooter's ears. That was a negligent discharge, not an accident IMO.
