Is the trigger pull heavy or rough? I would rather have a long heavy trigger pull on my carry gun. If you get in a situation that you need it, 8-10 lb. triggers would be no problem. However, a short light trigger scares the hell out of me. I never want to have a carry gun on myself to protect me and then end up shooting myself in the foot, leg or groin. OWWWWWWWW!!!!!!

Not to be critical, but if you follow safe gun handling techniques - never put your finger on the trigger until you are on target and ready to fire - there should not be an issue with any ND. One of my carry guns is a 1911 from a major manufacturer's custom shop with a light, crisp trigger & I am comfortable with it.
I agree that the finger should stay away from the trigger until you are ready to shoot. But when you get in a defense situation, instinct takes over and sometimes "stuff" happens.

I personally will not carry a gun that does not have a manual safety. My M&P .40 is a great gun but it will only see daylight at the range or matches. I bought the M&P .45
with the thumb safety so I could carry it if I chose to. I like the low profile safety on the 24/7 pros. I am considering getting a 24/7 compact to carry because of the manual safety.
I like the M&P compact but is does not have the thumb safety.
When I carry my 24/7 I do not use the safety. It is one more thing to have to do in a defense situation. You already have to draw, bring it up to target, and pull the trigger. I don't want to have to throw an extra step in there.
