    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.

    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.
