How bad are the triggers on the other pocket guns? I tried the Keltec before I bought the C, but the LCP wasn't out yet. Does the shield have any stock enhancements over the stock M&P? I know that I felt they were quite rough out of the box. It took a while to wear in.

My brother is coming off active duty in a couple months and he is shopping for a pocket carry. He is leaning towards a Kahr but really doesn't to spend the money on it.
My FEG pa-63 had a roughly 30 lb trigger pull. maybe exaggerating but not much. I put a Wolff spring in it and took it wayyy down. On a pocket pistol of any type your going to notice trigger pull effects on accuracy. Even with a big heavy long sight radius rifle you can notice the effects of a heavy or rough trigger.

No kidding. My question was how the shield's trigger compared to other pocket pistols. The kahr has a very long but rather smooth pull. I remember the keltec feeling like a sandy, gritted up hasp latch. Most pocket pistols that I've tried went to the extreme of LOP and heavy weights.

Idk how the shield pulls and breaks. It was explained to me by more than 1 person that these guns have a long and heavy pull to prevent a ND. Gotta pull that trigger with authority.
