If you're happy with a heavy gritty trigger, good for you.

Some of us want a smooth 5# or less trigger with a short reset.

I live a few miles from Detroit, a 1911 here will get you killed due to minimal capacity.

Does that answer your assumption?
Well; I can change mags PDQ! That said; my EDC X9 has 15 round mags.

10 years ago when I switched from 1911's to striker guns, most 1911's had a 7 or 8 round capacity. That will get you killed here.

5 armed thugs vs 7 or 8 rounds isn't good odds, that's why I switched to the smaller caliber with more capacity.

The shooting my driver was involved in a few years ago would have required 3 reloads with normal 1911's and he had only one shot that didn't hit a dirt bag.

Me too. The 1911 I carried before the EDC X9 was a Wilson Professional in 9mm, with 10 round Wilson ETM mags.

If I was going anywhere close to a larger population center; I’d carry either my Sig P229 Legion, or one of my M&P9s.

I always carry at least two reloads, regardless of capacity.

I need some advice/input here. I have thrown ALMOST every part at my favorite FS 1.0 M&P 40, except for the APEX sear. Has anyone added the APEX sear to their M&P? If so, how did you like what it did for your trigger? I'm going to get some input from those that have installed it before l buy it.
Any input is greatly appreciated!
