It's a little big for pocket carry (with a Desantis Nemesis-type pocket holster).
I plan to mainly use a Comp-Tac paddle holster. But as I mentioned, I won't actually be ready to rely on it until I hit the 2000 round mark with no malfunctions. Almost there.
Until then I'll keep carrying a Kahr...

No offense taken -- and wasn't referring to you as one of the "M&P fans." But there are a couple on this board (just like there are some Glock "fans," XD "fans" and 1911 "fans") and I figure some will feel compelled to "defend" their weapon of choice.
Some of the "fans" might benefit from A broad...

How much harder is it then the fullsize guns?[/quote]
I don't know. The trigger on my full size M&P is smoother, so I've never done any trigger work.
It probably seemd difficult to me becasue (a) I'm a dumb redneck and (b) [u]much as I hate to say it[/u], I've done trigger work on a l...

Actually Glock was too chickensh*t to ever issue or announce a recall.
They did re-design and replace at customer's request) the guide rod assembly. Lousy design and lousy customer service.

1. I'm sure you're aware that John Moses Browning never intended for the 1911 to have a grip safety.
2. And I'll try to forget about the warranty claims I've had with one of my 9mm M&P's.

I have a few of both -- I'd be fine with carrying either. However both are ugly. So if you're in the group that places importance on how "sexy" their gun looks, neither may be right for you.
The "regular" M&P's have pretty rough triggers, but you can fix that with an APEX kit.

M&P = outsanding choice. Get used to it. Train/practice with it, then carry it. Be glad it has no external safety (saves you the trouble of removing it).
J-frame .38 is a good BUG. But unless you're a really proficient shooter under stress, 5 rounds with a horrendous trigger = less than good CCW ...
