    HA!! Thank you for that phrase, I'll have to use it myself. ;)

    The sweet take-up/reset of the new hammer may be offset by the sour FTEs. How about trying a NP3 Langdon hammer?

    I was living in Virginia when the state flipped to Democrat control. The northern part of the state bordering DC, as well as certain urban areas, are very “blue”, while the remainder is a sea of...

    I'm enough of a weirdo that I'd like to see a thumb safety, railed, aluminum-framed, RDO 92. Preferably a Centurion, because why not, at that point? ;)

    I do think that the Langdon RDO solution...

    Interesting to note that Beretta decided to stick with the steel frame instead of an aluminum one, and also ditched the rail. :confused:

    Yeah, I've never shot a thumb safety on a M&P 9 or 40, and I've only ever even held the full-size M&P guns.

    A positive thing about ambi stuff that I only really first noticed when I had an outing...

    I am curious to see how the broad base of M17/M18 users find the safeties.

    I really wanted both a thumb safety and a hammer/SCD.

    Yes indeed, and my only intention in listing power factors is to give a sense of how the recoil compares. While I totally agree that power factor and terminal ballistics are entirely separate things,...

    The M&P is ambi, which I like better than the single-side that I have. Other than that, the shapes and locations feel pretty similar. Maybe for the M&P .45, it's the frame size as well as the...

    An excellent point. I had the thumb safety smith also modify my holsters to retain the thumb safety in the “on-safe” position. I intend to neither take chances nor miss out on the benefits:

    Mushy! ;)

    No perfect solutions, and I'll say that "action feel" doesn't matter much to me. I smash hard when I off-safe, and when I on safe. You should hopefully be able to see the drag marks on...
