A definite plus she does want our Granddaughter to learn to shoot, and has stated many times, in this crazy world we live in now, she wants her carrying a gun everyday. So hopefully in a couple years, Santa will bring her a pink .22. Thanks for the replies.....
Something in your wife`s past has definitely put the brakes on not wanting anything to do with guns. She doesnt mind you having them, wants the daughter to learn to shoot and carry a gun, but yet your wife is dead set against shooting one...??? Have you tried to get her to shoot a .22 rifle to start her out shooting...less intimidating. You can tell me its none of my business, but i`m curious to know why there`s and issue with her and shooting guns. Maybe you can take her out on some back field somewhere and try to get her to shoot a little .22 rifle to just break the ice....??? My wife an i just absolutely have a great time shooting together. I couldn`t imagine shooting without her with me. I guess sometimes i really dont know how fortunate i am until i run across folks like yourself that dosent have their wife with them for a good time, like shooting.

I got Mrs. Bone in to shooting when I started carrying. She was somewhat intimidated, but the best way to learn something is to do it. Like has been said, she shoots better than me. It's a known fact that women point better than men, something to do with build and mechanics. She now has her CCL and carries a Wiley Clapp .357. She's come a long way. I love shooting with her, and I feel more confident in her safety, and I have some backup for a change. I do understand. There are many people who just don't want anything to do with firearms. I told my wife when we first started, I wanted her to know how to use the firearms around the house. After that, she could take it as far as she wanted. She still doesn't love it like I do, but she is confident, competent, can protect herself, and when someone hands her a firearm, she's not freaked out. She's a good learner. A friend of mine handed a Glock 20 to his wife, and immediately, when she started to break the rules, my wife took it away, and load checked it. It was a proud day.

To answer your question (without adding my opinion) legally you can not add a safety to an M&P that started life as an M&P without a safety. Reason being, when it was manufactured and registered with the ATF it was registered as an M&P without a safety and modifying it to have one would require it to be re-registered with the ATF because you would have to cut slots in the grip/frame to allow for the safety to operate.

The only reason I know this is because they covered it when I took the M&P armorers course.

So unfortunately if you want one with a safety you'll have to buy a new one.

Now if it started out as an M&P with a safety I believe you can buy the parts to put them back in.

I have offered to get her a little .22 to learn with, I have offered to send her to private class to learn, and she says she is not interested, but she is happy that I carry. My daughter and son both learned about guns, my son is in the Army now, and he lives in Missouri, and carries daily when not on base, and my daughter is very comfortable with handguns, shotguns, and rifles. She has never said anything negative about handguns, and when we are going out, ask me, do you have you gun on? I truly believe she is just scared of them. I am going to get a little .22 revolver, and maybe she will try it, because I would really like for us to shoot together, we have been married 25 years, and do everything together except shooting....Yes you are fortunate, but even though my wife doesn't shoot, she encourages me too, so not that bad....

I hear you chase, i hope she comes around. She should at least know what to do with a gun should she ever needs it to save her life, but i surely pray it never comes to that.
Good luck my friend.
