I have a S&W M&P shield with CT laser on layaway anyone have one and how do you like it
No. It's just a flip of the lever and off it comes. No special tools or other utensils needed.I have a M&P in 9mm and like it a lot, for all the reasons listed in previous posts. I find, however, that as of late I agree with CZ ^ ^ ^ about wishing it had a double stack magazine.
One other thing I have not seen mentioned is, that in order to remove the slide I have to reach inside the open and locked chamber with a small screw driver, or dowel, or something and move that little do-flippy thing down before the slide will come off. Not an entirely attractive thing to do if one wishes to conduct a quick field strip under less-than-ideal conditions. (My M&P is the first model, I don't know if the 2.0 has that requirement.)
