I completed the Front Sight 4 day handgun course in 2008, and as previous postings indicated ,I was very pleased with the thoroughness of the instruction, and the professionalism of the school personnel--most especially the instructors. I did that course with a Gen3 Glock 23, which performed flawlessly [~600 rounds], even though I found the carry bulky and uncomfortable.
Recently, I got to try the relatively new M&P "Shield " in .40. It is physically smaller and lighter than our M&P compact 9mm, and very easy to carry. I tried a quick 100 rounds, and found that I had to just about "bench rest" it at 15 meters, to get a decent pattern. But then, accuracy was very good. There was no question why the problem. Compared to the trigger on our M&P 9, the Shield trigger was terrible. Pretravel was excessively long and pull was sloppy and gritty. Reset was iffy.
