    I took my wife to the range yesterday to try out the M&P. Shoots quite nicely the few times I was allowed to hode it:( and my wife likes it as well. The problem I am having is that the slide release is extremely hard to operate. You have to reach under and pull down on both left and right releases. Is this normal for these? I am hoping that more use will loosen them up. When I got it I field stripped it and cleaned and oiled good.
    BTW wifey loves my TRP Operator. She aint getting it!

    It should loosen up for her, they are a bit stiff when they are new, but my older ones are quite easy to operate.

    I'll just give it some time and see if it gets any better. I have to use two fingers as well one on either side.

    Mine was stiff when I first got it but certainly not that stiff. Love my 9c.

    Want McDaniels back, cause we don't want him anymore.

    You should always assume, as my wife does, that I have no idea what I'm talking about.

    I have been repeatedly racking and releasing the slide but it is still as stiff and hard as when I first got it. I am thinking that it might have "Priapism" Maybe I should consult a Dr.?:eek::eek:
