I have to say, it's a solid sidearm. I am not convinced yet that it has any significant advantages over the GLOCK though.

What does FTE/FTF stand for? I thought I was more familiar with the arcana of firearms abbreviations than most men, but I don't know that one. I have a suspicion it may have something to do with Glocks and the like, which would explain my lack of familiarity.

Failure to feed/Failure to eject. It's an internet era abbreviation common in gun forums, but not the real world.

The Apex striker block and sear will smooth out the pull considerably. If yours was made before mid-2013 (when they changed the sear housing) you can add the RAM to improve the felt reset. The newest slide stop will also improve the reset because it is configured to push the trigger bar back under the sear on reset.

I picked up my Colt M4 and M&P9 Shield last night, after my 7-day waiting period had elapsed.

So happy to live in a state without waiting periods!

Well, in my state, as of October 1, the waiting period on AR-15s and handguns with more than 10-round magazines is however long as it takes to change the laws, or to have the current ones declared unconstitutional.

That sucks. I lived in California for many years so I feel your pain. All I can say is now that I live in Kentucky I'll never go back.

Anything goes in New Mexico. I could wear a gun on my hat, should I choose to do so.

In KY we have what we call a concealed deadly weapon license. It allows you to carry, not only a gun, but any deadly weapon to include knives, etc., concealed.

Thanks. It's a shooter but I don't think I'll take it out and shoot it like my MKII. I do plan on going out and hunting small game with it. Look out squirrels! LOL! I've always been a revolver guy and it's nice to see some of the older Colts and Smiths making their way out of the woodwork. Colt recently reintroduced the New Frontier version of the SAA. It'll handle tier 2 45 Colt reloads and I've been contemplating getting one and using it as a deer/elk sized game hunting pistol. I have a Ruger Blackhawk and Vaquero in 45 Colt that I hunt with now but that Colt is so purdy. Oh and if anyone thinks a 45 Colt is weak or isn't so great for big game hunting come on out and shoot some of my special tier 3 loads out of the Blackhawk. ROFLMAO! A 325gr LBT hardcast slug cruising at around 1300 fps is a handful and will easily kill just about anything in NA without much trouble. Hell, my tier 2 265gr LBT load at 1100 fps go right through big MO deer and they don't break your wrist. LOL!

Oh and yeah, I rarely hunt big game with a rifle. It's either a recurve bow or a handgun for the most part.
