I went to handle for the fisrt time a M&P at my local Gander Store. When I asked the salesmen behind the counter for the M&P he frowned. I asked what he did not like about the pistol and he said the following. Holding the pistol in your right hand with your finger on the trigger, and your pointer finger from your left hand lightly on the slide release and pull the trigger very slowly. You can feel the moving trigger parts rubbing against the slide release as the trigger is pulled. He felt it was a flaw in the design. I am looking for feedback from those in the know since I really was impressed with the pistol.
