I have a S&W SD9 that I bought a few months ago. It's a gun that is positioned below the M&P's and above the current SD VE series pistols. It's built well, has an excellent grip, and is kind of a Glock clone. (Breaks down the same way, no active safeties, fires without a mag, etc.).

Biggest negative about it is its "self-defense" trigger. Apparently Smith doesn't want anyone to shoot someone by accident, so the trigger feels like it takes about 13 pounds to pull it back about 3 inches before it "breaks" and fires. Actually, it's supposed to be about an 8 lb. trigger. Using the term break with this trigger is stretching things a bit.

Apex makes a spring kit which I'm told improves things a lot, and I think if I keep this gun awhile, I will probably end up trying one. Meanwhile, I'm wondering, do triggers improve at all as they are used more?

Like anything mechanical, they change with use.....I would think that some model firearm triggers loosen up with use, some don't...my Beretta's seem to lighten up a bit, but my SR40 seems to be staying the same......If you plan on keeping the firearm, and you just can't get used to the trigger, then do a kit...but, I do not know alot about the SD9, I am assuming it's DAO only. If yours is around 8#, I wouldn't think that was heavy.....mine are probably 10+ DA........4.5 SA....
