My EDC rotation
Mandp9c by Krytonian, on Flickr
After a few years with the PF9 like all things EDC around here I finally "upgraded" to a slightly larger, thicker, heaver and nicer EDC item
it's the M&P Shield in 9mm. I have a little under 1,000 rounds though it and am starting to get comfortable with her (was a Christmas gift from my lovely wife) So..... That means time to modify it a bit with a Apex trigger, rear slide cover, Talon grips and tritium sights. Does anybody have any experience with AmeriGlo Pro I-Dot Sight 2 Dot. I really like the Trit sights but have not seen or heard much about the AmeriGlo ones.
Any pics of the carry setup? Have the same pistol and curious about your setup, thanks.
I've got a sig ultra and it's a sweet shooter, your going to love it. Wow, we have the same set up, micro tech ultra, sig ultra and Deep Blue watch, brothers from a different mother
Here is my EDC.... Colt Combat Commander, she's had a little work done, Trigger,Slide ,Sights.. She's a shooter and that's what's matters in the end.
Went with a "gentlemen's" carry today.

I've had and carried my Shield for a few years now. Installed the Ameriglo Pro I dots for the normal M&P's since the didnt make them for the Shield yet at that time. Other than the difficulty I had removing the stock sights I quite like the Ameriglos. Wish they made the red front sight when I bought them.

Thanks for the feedback Grey,
I was thinking that the color contrast would be the way to go, if you carry your Shield what holster/IWB do you use? I was looking at the Crossbreed supertuck.
I've had a few crossbreeds for a few different guns and I haven't liked any of them. I seem to be the minority in this opinion though. I use an Alabama holster kydex pocket holster when I have to dress nice and a Comptac C-tac IWB any other time. I prefer the all kydex holsters over hybrids. However, if you do like the hybrids then I would suggest looking at Foxx holsters. From my experience they're very similar to crossbreed yet about half the price. I also enjoy the Comptac M-tac for the modularity.

Check out "On Your 6 Holsters" . I had a hybrid style holster for shield and didn't care for it. Carrying in the kydex is easier/ more comfortable IMO.
I have had good success with the Ameriglo. Less expensive than the Trijicon HD, and almost as good. Ditto with the Talon grips. Mine work well and offer a better surface for gripping the firearm. I'm sure I will be a minority on this, but I would leave the trigger alone. I tried the Apex trigger not once, but twice in a M&P compact, and had nothing but problems both times. The first time there had been a design change with the replacement striker safety, making the replacement part non functional in my weapon. After numerous emails, phone calls, photos, and correspondence, I finally gave up and returned it, asking them to send me a new one when they worked out the kinks. I received the second on a few weeks later, it didn't work either. Once again I called and was told to replace the whole polymer sear assembly section of the gun for correct function. While this was going to be a range gun, and I wanted a lighter and smoother trigger pull, I decided all this hassle wasn't worth the benefit. I either leave my carry guns in their stock configuration, or as in the case with my carry Glocks, I INCREASE the trigger pull weight. If by chance I have a mental lapse, I like having that little extra to possibly prevent a negligent discharge.
