Embarrassing confession.

Embarrassing confession:  Until I saw the press release that S&W was introducing an M&P Shield without a slide mounted safety I did not realize mine had one.  I saw it, but because it makes utterly no sense (IMO) for it to have one I completely overlooked it.

Played with it a bit and it is low profile enough that I am not particularly worried about inadvertently activating it and I will continue to carry it safety OFF. Also, the trigger pull feels like it is the same or maybe even a smidge heavier than my Glock 17 trigger so that is not a worry.

Textbook example of why you should carefully examine new firearms purchases and thoroughly read the owner's manual (I skimmed mainly to see what type of ammo to feed it).
