    I'd be inclined to agree...until you pull the bang switch on a Shield.

    I just saw your posts about your new Shield last night. :p congrats man. BTW, I was referencing the trigger on the M&P9. I didnt enjoy the trigger pull on that gun, but IDK if the Shield's trigger feels the same.

    S&W is supposedly upgrading the entire line to mimic the Shield trigger.

    The M&Ps from FS to Compact feel nothing like the Shield, and I agree that it is a smart decision to change them.

    Shoot all three and pick the one you like best.

    Just to state the obvious, the "best trigger" is a very personal and experience driven choice. Try them yourself. Choose what you like. And note that your preferences may change over time. 'Best trigger' isn't like best ammo. There are objective tests for ammo. There are some objective tests for a trigger (weight, travel, etc) but you can quantify 'feel'.

    Glock because of reliability, ease of maintenance, and the aftermarket for parts to fine-tune it to your preference.

    I owned a Ruger LC9 and wasn't that happy with the quality. I owned an M&P40C and was completely dissatisfied with the trigger (I am in Massachusetts, though).

    Glock is a step above Ruger and S&W when it comes to reliability and simple quality, in my opinion. The Glocks are really a feat of engineering simplicity. It's what a tool should be: Simple, reliable, and useful.

    I had an early SR9 and finally sold it because I wasn't happy with the trigger. I've heard later ones are better so it would be my first choice because the ergonomics were great for me.

    The Smith would be my second choice - I've never handled one, though.

    My third choice would be anything but a Glock. I wouldn't take a Glock if you gave it to me.

    ^^^^ now you just completely discredited yourself. Blind hate of a platform is not intelligent or helpful.

    Find friends that have the guns and try them for yourself.

    He didn't indicate he had blind hate for the platform. He may have more experience with one than you do and just doesn't like them.

    At any rate, the OP's got enough to chew on by now.
