I will get the magazine, because it is interesting to read the article, but with all my respect to Mr Metcalf, some 3-4 years ago he wrote that on S&W, M&P when you pull the trigger it additionally loads the striker before release it, which is incorrect, M&P's striker is fully loaded by the cycle of the gun... I did send him an a nice e-mail asking about it, stating a video by AGA where you can clearly see that striker does not go back when the trigger is pulled but did not have any respond... Not like I was expecting one... It wasn't very important anyway...
