I can't describe the trigger pull in any of my guns other than "those two rifles have two stage triggers (CG63 and one AR with the Larue MBT) and I like the trigger on my 5.45 AR with the heavy trigger spring"
For all we know magz is jerry miculek... just because he talked down on the trigger don't mean he's a bad shot. I also don't see your times posted of Your record plate rack and bill drill times you don't seem to care about..

Not that it's really super on-topic but I am pretty darn impressed at the trigger on my new, bone-stock, probably recent production (no idea how to tell) SD9 VE. Beats the pants off my 2010 M&P40. Certainly very shootable. For a $299 gun I got as a lark/beater gun, and a Smith & Wesson semiauto no less, I was genuinely shocked.

I know he's good.. BUT
1. How does one conclude a person is a sucky shooter based on trigger complaints?
2. I agree with him that once a shooter becomes good trigger/gun doesn't matter much.
3. I genuinely want to know his times. None of the SME's post any of that crap except SURF. Only thing I can think of as to why is they worry they may be judged critically based on there SME title.

I really like long and heavy DA triggers. I also really like the AUG and SD9VE triggers. My preferences are certainly much different than most others. I'm probably also a sucky shooter.
I didn't post my times because I really don't care...they are only relevant to me. That's the definition of a PR. I'm not here to compete against you are anyone else on this forum, and I'm certainly not here for your approval. If you want to show up at a range I'm at, and shoot comparable gear, I'm happy to compete, whether I win or lose. I certainly have nothing to be ashamed about, SME title or not. I have always put my money where my mouth is, and I didn't learn to shoot last week.

Let's not turn this into a pissing contest. The thread isn't about SMEs' shooting abilities or anyone else's. However, given an SME's background and possible industry connections, he is probably in a place to evaluate a new piece of hardware and provide meaningful info to those of us who are interested in trying it. If the M&P 2.0 doesn't interest you and you hate Smith and Wesson, this thread isn't for you. Don't muddy the waters please.
Thank you SLG for taking the time and ammo to evaluate the pistol and share your experience!
