I've heard the saying for awhile, so I will put it to the test. I like the ambi-safety, especially with a wife that doesn't know much abot guns and only let me buy it because it had the safety. my question is can I make it a left-side safety only, I want to put the new crimson trace grips on it when they come out, and they don't work for the ambi-safety. If there is a way, it would be tight, if not...I don't get a laser

I lost all respect and stopped reading when you said your wife let you buy it.







Oh man I kid I kid.
I'm sure there's a way. Perhaps a better place for this would be in the M&P Smith Work forum? Or perhaps not. Anyways, I'm sure it can probably be done somehow. Maybe try asking some of the guys around here that work on the M&P's daily. Dan Burwell, David Bowie, Ronnie at boom-boom tactical, etc. they may be able to assist you.

Wife has no say in what i want to do, as i have no say in what she wants to do.

Certainly talk to any of the great gunsmiths on this forum which already been mentioned, but I think you can just remove the safety and take a good pair of clippers to the side you want to remove. It shouldn't affect the function of the safety at all.

My suggestions are that you get with someone who knows about pistols/shooting and maybe take a shooting course, then make a decision about the above.

I second the opinion on taking a few courses and talking to a lawyer before you remove one side or the other of the ambi safety. My last IDPA run, we had to shoot one handed, both left and right. I, having a M&P with no safety, it was not a big deal. The 1911 guys had several issues left handed. This is an informal league mainly with emphasis on tactical not IDPA.



I would really prefer an ambi safety on my MP9c,; we all have brain farts and little kids might be the recipient of a screw up. I hope a safety might be standard issue in the next year or two. Glocks can be retofitted with a safety by some gunsmithing. Smith, how about you?

they taught us some tac shooting in the academy, I just the laser would be very useful in a night situation if I pulled someone over and got into a quick fire-fight. I've asked a few people at work about laser grips and they liked them...my Sgt recommended night sights and practice shooting at night before I "blew $200 of my hard earned money".
