I picked up my Performance Center M&P 2.0 9mm today. It's quite nice. It's big, but doesn't feel big in my hand. It feels thinner than the Glocks I used to own. Trigger is pretty decent, and the light tube style sights are easy to pick up. The choice of backstraps is a nice touch. I found the one that feels perfect. I got the model without the external safety.

Good choice. Plenty of capacity. I now prefer EDC handguns without the external thumb safety, as it's one less thing to remember during the draw cycle. Modern designs are safe without the external thumb safety if properly handled.

I have a PC Shield (version 1) and it had a markedly better trigger than the standard Shield. As so many people were replacing the standard shield trigger with Apex triggers at the time (ultimately spending more on them than the price of the PC Shield alone) I got the upgraded model. I also like the fiber optic sights. That and the PC shield is ported.

Speaking of sights...How does a person tighten the rear sight so it can't move side to side. I noticed that if I push hard on it, I can move it a little bit. Is the large regular screw for elevation? How do I tighten the side to side motion? Is there a hex screw at the bottom of the small hole that's just above the large flat screw? If there is, it must be pretty small.

Ok. Duh. I just didn't have the right size wrench. I found a 1/16 wrench and it tightened the screw. Looking down the hole seemed like nothing was there, but I was actually looking down the hole in the screw itself.
